I have been a therapist for more than twenty-eight years. My work as a counselor includes a private practice where I work with victims of emotional, physical and sexual abuse and with people suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). I have also advised many couples and families who are struggling with relationship problems. My practice also spanned over twelve years as a crisis relief worker for Malheur County, where I work with people in dire grief, abuse, and life crises. I also worked in the prison system for more than twenty years. I use DBT and CBT, mindfulness therapy, as well as sensory treatment techniques that appeal to all the senses that are always affected when trauma, depression, and problems arise that motivate people to seek counseling.
I understand how difficult it can be for someone to seek advice, especially when they share difficulties in their life that have damaged their self-esteem and belief in themselves. I am a psychotherapist who believes in the strength and dignity of every person. I sincerely respect the people who are my clients. I am compassionate, listen well, and value everyone I have the privilege to work with.
