As a therapist, I’m motivated to support you in your journey toward self empowerment. We all deserve to believe in ourselves and to trust that we are worthy and valuable. In my work with adolescents, adults, families, and couples I am a constant source of encouragement and positivity and will hold space for you as you navigate through new challenges and difficult emotions. At every stage in life we are met with obstacles and opportunities to learn and grow. I’m honored to witness and be a part of my clients’ unique journeys.
My therapeutic approach is grounded in emotionally focused therapy and internal family systems therapy. I value and implement therapeutic approaches that create new avenues for healing and incorporate art and experiential practices into my work with clients as well. At the core of all my clinical work, I aim for collaboration and prioritize equity in all relationships. I appreciate the healing qualities of nature and encourage connecting with our environments whenever possible.
Outside of therapy, I love to hike, garden, write, and travel. I have lived in Portland for almost twelve years and with each season I am reminded just how great this city is.
I received my Master of Arts in Marriage, Couple, and Family Therapy and a Certificate in Ecopsychology from Lewis and Clark College. While studying, my focus was on systemic therapy, social justice, and environmental advocacy.
I am working toward state licensure in Oregon.
