**Unfortunately, I am currently unable to take on new clients, due to a full caseload. Thanks for understanding.** I believe that all people are wired for connection. We want to be at peace with ourselves, and we want to feel secure in our relationships. However, life experiences, and how we make sense of them, often get in our way. My work as a counselor is to help clients of all ages see themselves and their world more clearly, by cutting through the negative messaging and reconnecting with their wise self. This is done with an attitude of compassionate, even playful, curiosity, recognizing we are all figuring it out as we go.

I am passionate about providing evidence-based, speciality mental health care to Central Oregon. Evidence-based treatments are those that have undergone rigorous scientific evaluation. They have been well-studied and require empirical data to support their use. My approach to therapy involves building a strong relationship with the client, and engaging them to take an active role in their own treatment. Treatment goals are decided collaboratively and worked on both in session and between sessions with clear goals in mind. I aim to get you back to the things you love in your life, with minimal interference from symptoms.

These are extremely stressful times but you do not have to face it all alone. Depression and anxiety can lead, if left untreated, to isolation and self-destructive behaviors. Relationships may suffer and facing each day can feel overwhelming! In therapy, we work on restoring relationships. We work together to understand why you do what you do - then, change will come! Destructive patterns can be conquered. Trauma, stress, conflict, and great loss CAN lose their power. I love working with individual adults, families, couples, and teens who are ready to overcome their challenges.

Bereavement, suicide loss, loss of a pet, life transitions, difficulties in relationship to others and to self are some of the reasons people seek counseling.

There comes a time when humans examine their life and ponder if they are living out their optimal wellness. I discovered my therapeutic practice working with young Hurricane Katrina survivors in the elementary school. Witnessing the impact trauma plays in our lives, especially in developing brains, I believe all humans are resilient and have the ability to heal when given the opportunity.

Everyone experiences sadness and distress. When we are struggling with painful experiences it can be helpful to have someone to assist us in our journey to healing, comfort, and connection. My clients often reach out when they experience anxiety, depression, self-doubt, grief, relationship struggles and other situations. I assist my clients in learning about and connecting with themselves and others from a place of compassion. Counseling provides a safe place to explore oneself including goals, values, and needs. Through one’s innate strength, clients can learn to trust themselves, find meaning, and get through life struggles.

Happiness depends on feeling good. It’s hard to feel good when your relationships are struggling, or you feel misunderstood and not seen at work, or by your family or partner. Looking outside of yourself for love or reassurance is a game of chance- it works sometimes, but learning how to source your own self worth is a sure thing. Becoming more aware of your emotions and learning to listen to what they are telling you teaches you how to get what you need both from yourself and from others. With this kind of "emotional fluency" you become a more confident, graceful, happier version of yourself.

I work with preteens, teens, adolescents, and parents to navigate the challenging transition of childhood to early adulthood. I believe in the importance of relationship. We aren't ourselves when we don't feel comfortable with someone, so my work centers on establishing a working relationship that fosters collaboration and mutual understanding. I believe that “you are the expert on you” and work to understand my client’s personal values and life perspective. Once I have a sense of who you are, we will begin to identify behavior patterns and increase awareness to focus on making meaningful changes that are right for you.
