Marriage Family Therapist Intern

I enjoy helping teens and their families work through the challenges of the adolescent years, and have devoted much of my practice to working with youth and families. I also work with adult individuals on a variety of presenting issues, including anxiety, depression, and relationship challenges.

My Approach

Today's teens and families face so many pressures from the outside world. Phones, social media, gaming, academics, and athletics can all add to the stress that teens and their families face. These stressors can cause anxiety and depression in teens, while making parents feel helpless. My approach centers around normalizing these experiences for my clients, while empowering teens and parents with meaningful tools/solutions for change. Deciding to see a therapist can be an intimidating process, and can be filled with all sorts of questions. My goal is to make therapy feel accessible and welcoming. My strengths-based approach draws on your strengths, resources, past successes, and hopes for the future. My therapeutic approach utilizes models of family systems therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and mindfulness-based approaches.

My Background

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Intern with the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists. I hold a Master's Degree in Couples and Family Therapy from the University of Oregon. I am supervised by Tiffany Brown, LMFT. During my Master's program, I worked as a therapist at PeaceHealth Counseling, providing therapy to children, adolescents, and families at an outpatient pediatric clinic. I also provided individual, couples, and family therapy at the University of Oregon's Center for Family Therapy. My previous professional experience includes coaching high school and college baseball, working in college admissions, and working as an academic support specialist for student-athletes at the University of Oregon. I also enjoy helping students with the college admissions process, and enjoy working with athletes on performance-related issues.
