Licensed Professional Counselor

My work is built on the belief that change is possible, that people can grow, and that there is a way to healing. The journey can be difficult, and sometimes it is long, but I believe that by working together, we can find a way. I invite you to schedule a consult, offered at no charge.

My Approach

My therapeutic approach is first and foremost person-centered and individualized, meaning that I tailor my approach to your individual needs and preferences. That said, I frequently utilize the cognitive theories, combining elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I also draw heavily on principles from Narrative Therapy, frameworks from Existential Therapy, and the conversation mechanics of many sessions draw on Motivational Interviewing and a Solutions Focused Approach. Drawing on my spiritual tradition, I am committed to creating a therapeutic space that is welcoming and hospitable, patient and compassionate, rigorously brave and relentlessly optimistic. I see you as possessing great dignity and having great value. My honor is to walk along side you and search out the good in you, even when you cannot find it yourself.

My Background

I hold a Master of Arts in Counseling from Multnomah University. Major coursework included Integration of Psychology and Spirituality with emphases on Addictions Recovery and Social Concern. I completed additional coursework through Daystar Academy to earn my credential as Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor II. My graduate internship was at the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center, providing individual and group counseling. My post-graduate practice was at Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare providing dual diagnosis counseling. As a licensed professional, I practiced with Western Psychological & Counseling Services and taught in the Master of Arts Counseling Program at Multnomah University, prior to starting New Pattern Counseling.
