I am devoted to providing therapy that is collaborative, strengths-based, and empowering. Because I honor the therapeutic relationship as an opportunity for profound healing and growth I approach my clients with respect, honesty, transparency, and acceptance . Every individual is unique and therefore my style is flexible to each client's emotional, mental, cultural, and developmental needs. I believe in the inherent good in people and see most problems as arising out of attempts to adapt to the challenges within an environment and not as individual weaknesses. I nurture hope, resiliency, self-worth, boundaries and assertiveness.

In therapy I work collaboratively with clients, offering support and guidance in resolving their concerns. We work together to improve ways of coping, increase self- acceptance , and raise awareness of the impact of their thoughts and feelings. My intention is to empower clients to increase health in their relationships, overcome barriers, and reconnect with their goals for the future. First and foremost we work together to establish an open and engaging relationship, and the environment of safety and trust that is essential for exploring challenging issues, thoughts and feelings.

Using Narrative Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and EMDR, I help individuals expand their repertoire of coping skills, process trauma, and find grounding and clarity within their personal values.
My work with clients reflects values of anti-oppression, transparency, and trust. Therapy is an investment in your growth and personal development, the foundations of which are a solid relationship between the therapist and client. I am seeking clients who are willing to dig deep in order to disentangle from unhelpful narratives and thoughts. I enjoy working with issues regarding relationships, attachment, identity, existential concerns, belonging and trauma. As a clinical social worker, an understanding of the systemic nature of trauma is a key part of my practice.

I utilize interventions aimed at developing self compassion, acceptance , and alignment with what is meaningful and valuable in your life.
As a counselor, I offer a curious and exploratory approach to supporting my clients through difficult passages in life. Working within a relational framework, I strive to cultivate a sense of openness and compassion for all aspects of your identity and who you are. I find that this framework best suits motivated and engaged adult clients who are ready to create meaningful change in the here and now. Together, we partner to examine old patterns and limiting narratives you may believe about yourself and others, and seek ways to support you living with more integrity, clarity, and wholeness.

I incorporate ACT and DBT to help clients manage stressors more effectively and live more meaningful/fulfilling lives.
Waitlist for New Clients! Many of my clients come to me with emotional wounds. They often felt invisible, rejected, devalued, or deeply hurt by others. They learned to adapt to the unsupportive environment by judging themselves, tensing up, trying to control everything, disconnecting from themselves, numbing their feelings, not trusting others, hiding, or trying to please everyone. As time goes by, these strategies stop working and become symptoms we label as depression, anxiety, disordered eating, substance use, PTSD, self-harm, etc. I work with clients to break free from the past and live life in the way they want.

Using an integrated approach, I use best practice models such as trauma-informed cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR), grounding/mindfulness practices, motivational interviewing, acceptance , and commitment therapy ( ACT ), psychosomatic therapies, psychoeducation, and internal family systems (IFS).
Are you tired of feeling stuck? Need help to reach your goals? Do you feel broken from trauma? Do you struggle with emotional regulation? Do you experience difficulties as a result of childhood abuse? Do you find it difficult to manage anxiety, depression, anger, or guilt/shame? Asking for help is difficult if not scary at first. I have a relaxed, calming, secure, and soothing environment where we can work together as a team to bring the desired healing you seek. As a Professional Counselor Associate, I will use my skills and voice to help empower my clients with hope.

My therapeutic approach involves acceptance and non-judgment.
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 feel uncomfortable, so my work centers on establishing a working relationship that fosters connection, 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.

I use evidence based treatment methods in my work such as CBT and ACT .
*Not currently accepting new clients* I have been honored to work with individuals and couples who have improved their communication, boundary setting, and coping skills through practice, dedication, and the power of a restorative and healing therapeutic relationship. I have often been amazed and inspired by the clients I have seen who uncover their potential, and overcome obstacles that they once thought were insurmountable. We both influence and are influenced by our environments and relationships. The same way we are molded by these experiences, we can also create self change through support, tools, and the power of intention.

With a collaborative and holistic approach, I strive to bring warmth, unconditional acceptance , compassion, and cultural humility to create a space that fosters a sense of safety and self-exploration.

Do you long for personal growth and happiness but find yourself struggling with old wounds, criticism, anxiety and self defeating behaviors? The individuals I work with learn to tap into their own natural instinct to heal and thrive. With 30 years experience, I am skilled at helping people find competence and meaning when they thought there was no hope. Together in the adventure of counseling, we explore how your life experiences, relationships and natural mind-body systems currently serve you - well, not so well or quite badly - and then work together to restore strength, balance and vitality.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists

Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy evidence-based?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of many approaches within the field of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence-based treatment framework that has been shown to be effective in treating many mental health conditions including depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and OCD.

What is the difference between Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Despite being part of the CBT family of therapies, ACT differs from other approaches within this field in several important ways: First, it emphasizes acceptance over change; second, it focuses on present moment experiences rather than past experiences or future events; third it focuses on what clients can do rather than what they cannot do; and fourth it emphasizes values rather than symptoms as targets for change.

What credentials will a certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist have?

A certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist in Eugene will have completed specialized training in this approach at a university accredited by The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT).

How long does ACT typically take?

ACT is a relatively short-term therapy that focuses on helping you accept the things you can't change and commit to the things you can. It typically takes about eight weeks of weekly sessions with a therapist to complete the entire process. You may need to see your therapist weekly or biweekly, depending on the circumstances surrounding your situation.
