A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step
I believe people have within themselves the ability to make positive changes in their lives. I meet people where they are emotionally and help them facilitate the personal growth they desire. I provide a comfortable, supportive atmosphere and build a trusting relationship that allows people to explore personal struggles, honestly address issues, build a new sense of autonomy and encourage constructive life choices. The skills and knowledge that are learned in therapy empower my clients to manage stressful life events, regulate emotional states, improve relationships and foster self-esteem.

I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor in Oregon for over 25 years and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington for 2 years. I am a Nationally Board Certified Clinical Counselor.
When working with people I consider different aspects of a person's life, learning styles, age, health and personality in developing the most useful approach to meet their needs. Some of the treatment modalities may include mindfulness, play therapy, neuroscience, cognitive behavior therapy techniques, positive psychology, narrative techniques, family-systems theory, psycho-education, skills training, parenting support and training and client-centered approaches.
