As a Marriage and Family counselor, I provide professional mental health services to individuals, couples, and families. I approach counseling as a joint endeavor in which you, as the client, and I work together to understand your goals, uncover and approach difficulties, and move towards your healthy functioning and personal fulfillment. I believe that inside each of us is a unique human being that has the resources for positive growth. Often our families of origin have influenced us in numerous ways the have created various ways of coping, some healthy and some not so healthy. Therefore, it is my goal with each client, couple, or family to tap into those inner resources of each individual and discover their unique feelings and perspective in order to create healthier and more effective ways of living, loving, and communicating in their lives.

I have a Masters of Arts in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling from George Fox University. I have extensive training in Play Therapy for children. I am a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, the Oregon Counseling Association, and the Oregon Association of Play Therapy. I am a registered intern with the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors. I have worked as a Life Coach, and have a background in accounting and finance.
