I have a history of work in the child protection system and much prefer working in a system that works to heal people and their families rather than disrupting them.
I work with individuals of varying ages. I work with people who have struggled with trauma. I enjoy working with a range of populations and have some experience in a number of treatment modalities. I have some focus on attachment based theories. I use expressive art as part of other treatment modalities.

I am a licensed clinical social worker who is dedicated to providing my clients with ethical, professional and confidential services. I believe the therapeutic relationship is one of the most important factors in determining successful outcomes in treatment. This involves the client feeling safe and trusting of the therapist while he/she explores emotional vulnerabilities and painful thought processes. My hope is that you will experience me as someone who actively listens to you and works with you to develop effective problem-solving strategies. My approach to therapy is respectful, honest, client-centered and strengths based.

Not accepting new clients at this time. I've been working with children , adolescents, and families for 20 years. As a parent myself, I'm familiar with the growing pains of raising a family. Each new day can be an adventure, whether we want it to be or not. I can assist you as you navigate the ups and downs of family life and parenting. I believe it's 'easier to build a child than to repair an adult.' Building a resilient, happy child begins at birth. Fostering resilience in your children through effective parenting and a supportive "village" is a gift they will have the rest of their lives.

I work with a wide array of clients experiencing challenges in their lives ranging from eating disorders to substance abuse to serious trauma. In my years of work specializing in children and parents contending with anger, anxiety, depression, foster-care, parenting struggles and divorce issues I have helped families find healing and recover fun in their relationships. Whether a person is seeking services because they realize their problems can improve and they want professional support or at the insistence of a concerned family member, therapy should be a place where you experience confidence that the situation will improve.

Limited availability, mornings and day times available for immediate openings. I am only accepting new clients from ages 6 - 25 (I may be flexible on this depending on need). Young kids will require parent availability to participate in sessions. I also have one opening for a couple. I like an open and engaging session and take a client centered approach. In sessions I will check in with what you're needing to address or we will work on pre-set goals. I do a lot of work with strengths based care and solutions focused work. I appreciate and will also incorporate aspects of family systems in both individual and family therapies.

I provide individual counseling, play therapy, and child -parent relationship therapy.
You might be feeling more sad, angry, worried, or lonely than usual. Juggling work, family and school might have you doubting yourself, struggling to connect and feel loved in relationships, or feeling dissatisfied with your career. If you are Black, Indigenous, a person of color, queer, trans, gender expansive, or live with a disability, you may be tired of being strong. You may notice certain spaces where you don’t feel comfortable being your full self. In therapy you can feel understood, valued, and empowered to heal and grow. In therapy you can explore and celebrate your culture, your wisdom, your strengths, and your identities.

Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, life transitions or adjustments? Maybe struggling as a parent or have a child with behavioral concerns? Life can be beautiful but does not always go as planned. We are all on our own journey, however, we are not meant to do that on our own. Taking the vulnerable step to find support can come with relief, self-awareness, healing, and growth.

I traveled extensively as a child so another specialty is cross-cultural counseling as I have a deep understanding of the challenges when moving from one culture to another.
Calling a counselor for the first time can be a weird experience. I want to make this process comfortable for you. You will guide this process and I will follow where you need to go. I have developed knowledge of theories and interventions from my masters degree at George Fox University in Marriage Couple and Family Counseling, but I am most focused in meeting you where you are at. Together we will navigate what is challenging you and bring you to a place of understanding and hope. I work with couples and individuals of all ages.
