My Approach

As a professional counselor I believe people are the experts and story tellers of their live. Using a strength based approach clients increase their independence, feel encouraged to take charge of their lives, make decisions, and recognize and utilize their strengths. I also utilize a cognitive behavioral approach in aiding clients to challenge negative thought patterns to help reconstruct thoughts that effect behaviors. I practice collaborative problem solving with clients in finding alternative solutions to problems within relationships.

My Background

I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Concordia University and received my Master's Degree in Professional Mental Health Counseling from Lewis and Clark College. I am a registered counseling intern supervised by Emelie Blank, MA, LPC. Most recently I worked as a school-based Child and Family therapist assisting kids and families in developing effective communication skills, emotion and thought recognition, building and implementing coping skills, encouraging kids and families to advocate for needs, and develop collaborative problem solving skills. I have over three years experience working with kids in a residential facility where I helped manage crisis, build healthy and trusting relationships, develop coping skills, and provide a safe space. I have worked with adults for a year and a half addressing: anxiety, depression, trauma related stressors, interpersonal relationships, grief and loss, life transitions, and co-occurring mental health concerns.
