My Ideal Client

I've always loved listening to other people's stories and helping them to make sense of life events. I offer a patient and empathetic approach, practical interventions, and often incorporate play, art, and humor into sessions. While I have experience working with a range of ages, genders, and challenges, I especially enjoy working with kiddos who struggle with anxiety and making/maintaining social connections. My practice is open on Th & Fri, and currently all sessions are Telehealth.

My Approach to Helping

Change is hard. Talking about feelings can be hard. It is important to me that the therapy environment feels supportive and comfortable, and that clients feel heard and understood. My therapeutic approach is relational and collaborative. I tend to utilize cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and strengths-based approaches, along with psychoeducation for parents/natural supports. I may guide you/your kiddo to integrate other resources in the community to balance social-emotional-physical health.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I graduated from Lewis and Clark College in 2006 with my Master's degree and an emphasis in working with children, adolescents, and families. I became licensed in 2009. As a therapist, I've worked with youth in residential treatment centers, outpatient clinics, in the community providing crisis intervention, schools, and currently in a partial hospital day treatment program specializing in treatment of eating disorders. I have completed a certificate program through PSU for therapy with adoptive and foster families. I use a trauma-informed framework to gently gather information and help a client gain insight about how past experiences impact current feelings and behaviors. In my spare time, I volunteer with Guide Dogs for the Blind and adopted a "career change" pup, Cookie, now a certified therapy dog. She might make an appearance once we return to in-person sessions! I also enjoy running, reading, soccer, and art.
