About

Every year everything I have ever learned in my lifetime leads back to this: the fires and the black river of loss whose other side is salvation, whose meaning none of us will ever know. To live in this world you must be able to do three things: to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go" -by Mary Oliver, In Blackwater Woods. My goal as a therapist is help individuals and couples deepen their understanding of themselves and their unique struggle. Building a trusting and compassionate therapeutic relationship is our first goal.
I utilize an eclectic approach drawing from the cognitive therapies and interpersonal neurobiology. I also value integrating creative approaches from the fields of art therapy, narrative therapy, mindfulness, and existential philosophy. I see clients struggling with anxiety, life transitions, sexual problems, codependency/empaths, and relationship struggles.
Secure video sessions are available for those residing in Oregon and California. I am in network with Regence BCBS, Moda, and PacificSource. My practice is nearly at capacity with the most popular times filled. Email/text is the best way to reach me.
