My Approach to Helping

I have undergone numerous trainings in trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) and collaborative problem solving (CPS) and meet with a consultant weekly to ensure model fidelity. I’ve found these to be extremely helpful tools but of course everyone is different. For that reason, I work to adapt a unique approach depending on the client’s wants and needs. In general, I try to build a strong genuine relationship where people can feel safe and understood.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I hold a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Lewis and Clark College. My undergraduate work was in psychology and creative writing and I have been passionate about personal development and mentorship for over twelve years. I have five years’ experience working with individuals across a wide spectrum of presenting concerns. My practice is further backed by extensive academic study of counseling theories, trauma informed care, psychopharmacology, couples counseling and substance abuse.

Techniques I Use


  • Coaching External link

    Coaching allows one to bring about positive changes in their life more quickly and efficiently than they might on their own. Coaching makes use of collaborative goal formation, problem solving and accountability.
