I am an LCSW (licensed clinical social worker) in Oregon. I have been working in a clinical setting as a clinical social worker for 5 years. Three of those years have been exclusively virtual, so I am comfortable and accustomed to providing online therapeutic support via video, telephone and text messaging.
I have an eclectic approach and utilize a variety of treatment techniques including: Internal Family Systems, EMDR, Brain Spotting, Mindfulness, Emotional Freedom Technique, Tapping, Cognitive behavioral therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy.
I believe that you are the expert in your life experience and that the answers you need to reach your definition of success lies within you. My role is to help guide you to your own truth.
I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, coping with addictions, relationship issues, & trauma and abuse. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!
I look forward to meeting you, answering any additional questions you may have and helping you on your journey.
