I am licensed in Oregon with over 16 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with chronic illness, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, motivation, self image, and confidence, & coping with life changes. I also have extensive experience working on health goals with folks who are going through or have had bariatric surgery. I am trained in Brainspotting, an evidence based trauma treatment modality. 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!
