My Approach to Helping

People have the capacity to learn and make meaningful change. This is one of my core beliefs. Likewise, it is part of the human experience to feel stuck, or to run into walls within ourselves that we are unlikely to overcome on our own. When facing hardships, unhealed wounds, life transitions or contending with behaviors that no longer serve us, it takes courage to reach out, open up and dig deep to process our pain and struggles. When we take that leap, we also have the opportunity to move towards insight, empowerment and change. My approach is person-centered, trauma-informed, depth-oriented and mindful. I assist clients with increasing awareness and insight by examining thoughts, emotions and behavior, the influences of the past and present and bringing the implicit or subconscious to the surface. Clients are also supported with identifying what they can do in the “here and now" to create the change they seek.

Why I Became a Therapist

My path to becoming a therapist came from a deep desire to understand the human experience. From a young age, I have wanted to understand why we suffer, how we can cope and how can we experience joy, satisfaction, connection and meaning with the time we have. I was also compelled by an ideal to contribute - to help ease suffering, promote dignity and respect for all people, and ultimately, to help others develop their knowledge, strengths and skill to navigate the profound beauty and sorrow of being. I have Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology: Art Therapy, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Oregon and nationally Registered Art Therapist. The first decade of my career focused on providing intensive care in social services, community mental health, public schools and hospital-based programs, and since 2018, I have provided therapy in outpatient private practice.
