I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Oregon and Washington with over 15 years experience.
I specialize in individual therapy working with young adults and women. I feel honored to walk along side individuals in their unique journey’s. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from Western Washington University, A Master’s of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from George Fox University, and a Master’s of Science Degree in Drug and Alcohol Studies from The University of Glasgow.
I have worked extensively with young adults and women in the United States as well as Internationally. I have worked in a wide array of settings such as public schools, private settings, outpatient, and residential treatment before starting my own practice.
I believe in working with the whole person to help discover their full potential in this world, and embrace their authentic self, free from the pain and turmoil they hold inside. I do not believe in a one size fits all approach to therapy, but believe in meeting each person where they are in their journey and incorporating a variety of evidence based techniques to meet each client’s unique needs.
I believe my most powerful tool I can bring to therapy is myself. I have a warm, nurturing, compassionate presence that creates a space for exploration, emotional expression, and learning new ways of being.
My goal is to always create an environment where people feel safe enough to explore what is holding them back in this life. I value the therapeutic relationship and seek to help my clients find inner happiness and healing.
I value the amazing healing powers of listening, but also take a direct approach with my clients leading them to a happier and healthier way of functioning. I believe in the innate strength of each individual and their ability for healing.
I feel honored to be a part of the therapeutic process of each individual that walks into my doors.
