Let's Connect (971) 328-3346
During our therapy settings we organize our sessions based on the child and family’s goals and motivations. Working together we find a wide variety of interventions to help them improve their everyday experience and meet the objective at hand. We identity road blocks, map what success looks like and trouble shoot together as a team using a combination of science supported, therapeutic art practices and talk therapy.
Along the journey with my client, we unpack and depict harmful bias, stereotypes or unhelpful self-perceptions that they may be getting in the way of growth and healing. As a counselor, I aim to create a therapuetic environment for all families with an abolitionist lens that is anti-racist, LGBTQAI+ Positive, and rooted in a framework of disability justice.
I offer flexible scheduling, emergency drop-in hours, sliding scale, and require no commitments or fees for an initial consultation! Let’s jump on a call and chat about what your goals for therapy might be so I can support you and your family.
