My Ideal Client

I have a passion for working with teens and young adults, as this is a time full of transitions and changes. I know how important it can be to have a supportive space as you navigate life’s challenges and difficult experiences. I support teens and young adults who are experiencing anxiety, depression, adjusting to changes and experiencing relationship conflicts. I have experience working with youth with ADHD and youth who have experienced trauma.

My Approach to Helping

My first priority in approaching our work together is to build a therapeutic relationship that feels safe for you to express your full self, feelings and experiences. This relationship is the foundation of our work together in exploring and reaching your goals. Wherever you are at, I will strive to meet you there and support you in building connection with yourself and others on your path to emotional wellbeing. When you are ready, we will work together to explore your thoughts, feelings, challenges, and goals. My therapeutic approach is grounded in cognitive-behavioral therapy, attachment theory, mindfulness techniques and motivational interviewing techniques.

My Values as a Therapist

I am a White, cisgender female. I grew up in the Portland area and I am very fond of the Pacific Northwest. I received my Master's degree in Social Work in June of 2021 and have experience working with youth in various levels of care. This has included day treatment, residential, community-based and outpatient settings. I also have a background in working with and advocating for survivors of domestic violence. I value a strengths-based perspective and creating therapeutic and supportive relationships that allow others to feel heard, accepted and validated. I am committed to pursuing social justice and work to maintain a systems-based perspective. I have served on various Diversity, Equity and Inclusion committees at my places of employment and have experience collaborating with diverse groups of colleagues to write and implement an agency-wide equity lens. I have previously completed trainings in Collaborative Problem Solving, Eating Disorders in Adolescents and Trauma-Informed Care.
