My Approach to Helping

I work to reconnect you mind and body so that you can live your life in current time and keep the past in the past. I strive to give you a supportive environment with compassion and empathy so that you feel able to do this hard work. This is your journey, that I will walk beside you in. It is my goal to make you feel like the expert on your path, but I will help to point out new ways to see things or things you might not have noticed. Walking through the doors of therapy is hard, I will help you gain an understanding of your emotions and help ground you while you work through your wounds.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I received my bachelors in sociology at Portland State University and my masters in marriage and family therapy from Lewis and Clark College. I have 7+ years of working in the mental health field. I have worked with foster youth, in addiction, family work, complex PTSD and more.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • Attachment Theory External link

    I work off attachment theory to help individuals and couples. This gives us an understanding how we interact with people in our lives and how we can change our patterns.

  • EMDR External link

    I was trained in EMDR in 2016.

  • Couples Counseling External link

    I am trained at a Marriage and Couples therapist from Lewis and Clark college. My training has helped me to constantly look through a lens to help relationships change and grow.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Historical Trauma External link

    I have worked with PTSD and historical trauma since starting in the field. Working to put our trauma in the past and stopping it from controlling our present moments, can help us gain control of horrible things that have happened to us.

  • Sexual Abuse External link

    I have worked with adults that have experience childhood sexual abuse and recent abuse. I come from a trauma education with EMDR training.

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    I focus on systemic struggles from culture to family to relationships. Having both people in the relationship helps to do work in the moment and make big changes.

  • Anxiety External link

    Anxiety can make it hard for us to connect with people around us, and affects a huge part of our community. Almost all my clients have experienced some form of anxiety.

  • Depression External link

    We all struggle with some form of depression, but when it affects your life, so that you can’t do the things you want it becomes a problem. I will help you find ways to work with your depression, so that you can exist with it.
