Due to COVID-19 pandemic, I am only seeing clients online or over the phone. One of the most important factors that predicts successful therapy is the relationship between us. Our working alliance must allow you to trust, feel safe, and feel open. I strive to attune and collaborate with you to help build a safe, authentic connection that will serve your healing and growth. I incorporate mindfulness-based approaches of Hakomi, Recreation of Self (RC-S), attachment work, and trauma resourcing.

I've been in practice since 2015 and have been specializing in mindfulness-based depth work , trauma resourcing, and attachment. I completed a Masters Degree in Counseling in Clinical Mental Health at Portland State University. In addition, I completed a year-long internship practicing mindfulness-based, somatic therapy approaches with the M.E.T.A Counseling Clinic. Previous to my internship, I had completed the two-year M.E.T.A. Comprehensive Training program. I also assisted in teaching the M.E.T.A Comprehensive year one program in 2015 to deepen my training.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • Hakomi External link

    I incorporate mindfulness-based methods of Hakomi, Recreation of Self (RC-S), attachment work, and trauma resourcing. I have extensive training learning these modalities through my internship experience and training with Mindful Experiential Therapy Approaches (M.E.T.A.).

  • Somatic Therapy (Body Centered) External link

    Drawing on mindfulness-based, somatic training in Hakomi, Recreation of Self (RC-S), I use the body as a way to access emotions, sensations, imagery, memories that may related to a way a client experiences their body and their therapeutic goals.

  • Mindfulness-based External link

    I incorporate mindfulness-based methods of Hakomi, Recreation of Self (RC-S), attachment work, and trauma resourcing. I have extensive training learning these modalities through on-going practice, supervision, and previous internship experience and training with Mindful Experiential Therapy Approaches (M.E.T.A.).

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Historical Trauma External link

    I help clients heal from adverse past emotional, physical, and sexual experiences using trauma resourcing and mindfulness-based, somatic counseling. Working slowly to create collaboration, safety, and resiliency, past traumatic events are processed in mindfulness, reworking the past experience in safety.

  • Men's Issues External link

    I will be forming a Men’s Process Group in the Fall 2017 or early 2018. I help men build better relationships, build skills and confidence in fully expressing themselves, and feel more holistically empowered with their masculinity.

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    I help partners identify undesired ways of relating, communicate in healthier and more connecting ways, and make different choices in relating. I use experiential and emotionally-focused counseling approaches to help couples experience better understanding, empathy, and skills in connecting with each other.

  • Codependency External link

    I work with clients to help them see how they contribute to co-dependent relationships, where they learned it, and support them to help break the cycle.

  • Depression External link

    I provide compassionate, mindfulness-based counseling to process what may be causing depression, help access resources in the self for more resiliency, and help you find more contentment in life.
