I am licensed in Oregon with 26 years of professional work experience. I’ve worked in a wide range of practice settings including outpatient mental health clinic, community mental health, and at-risk youth services.
I draw from an eclectic mix of therapeutic frameworks and techniques including Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Interpersonal Neurobiology, among others. I work with adult individuals seeking support for issues including life transitions and adjustments, loss and grief, anxiety, and depression. My style is warm, collaborative, client-centered and trauma-informed. I strive to create a safe, respectful and supportive environment, honoring the intrinsic wisdom and strength of all my clients.
Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!
