Licensed Professional Counselor Intern

Have you experienced hardship that still affects you today? If your past seems to follow you around, control your emotions, weaken your relationships, and repeat itself in the same old patterns, I can help.

My Approach

I specialize in treating trauma. Whether you feel like you have way too much trauma or not enough, I want to hear your story, help you unburden yourself of the load you've been carrying, identify and strengthen your internal resources, and ultimately help you process your past trauma. Our work together will also focus on helping you become a more mindful, self-aware, self-compassionate, and resilient version of yourself. I often use eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and Lifespan Integration (LI) to help my clients process their trauma. EMDR and LI are two gentle, body-focused trauma therapies that can help you process your traumatic memories with less risk of becoming retraumatized by them.

My Background

I have a Master of Science in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling from Portland State University, a dual track program in clinical mental health counseling and rehabilitation counseling. I'm a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC), which means I have specific education, experience, and training in disability and chronic illness. I work a lot with trauma and disability, including where the two intersect. My practice also has a strong focus on grief and loss, such as the loss of a parent, sibling, partner, ability, or career.
