in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling from Portland State University, with a specialization in chronic illness & disability.
People seek counseling for many reasons: loss, change, growth, anxiety, a deepened sense of meaning. Whatever your reason may be, my goal is to provide you with accepting and collaborative support that allows you to move toward a place of increased clarity and improved well-being. Therapy can be a tool to do so, as a confidential, safe, and compassionate place to reflect.

I spent years working with adolescents and young adults with chronic illness (liver transplant and Inflammatory Bowel Disease populations).
With a background treating people across the lifespan, I have come to the realization that the therapeutic relationship is one of the most sacred spaces we can enter. With mutual respect and openness I can help you to process through grief, trauma, and chronic illness . It would be an honor to enter the sacred therapeutic space alongside you. Of note, while I am not currently taking insurance I am happy to provide you with a super bill for you to seek reimbursement from your insurance for out of network providers.

I help Oregonians explore their strengths, become more “mindful,” improve their relationships, make career/life transitions, and heal. Are you looking to process trauma and hardship from involvement with a controlling church, cult, multi-level marketing company (pyramid scheme), or harmful spiritual environment? This website doesn't offer boxes for me to identify as non-religious, and perhaps you are explicitly seeking a secular therapist to discuss lingering shame, relationship cut-offs, and identity confusion. I also specialize in helping people adjust to disabilities such as chronic illness /pain, as well as autistic adults.

My practice is dedicated to working with adults living with stress related to complex chronic illness (including COVID and post acute COVID syndrome, POTS, dysautonomia, vestibular disorders, migraine, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, MCAS, IBD, a) as well as with the caregivers, medical providers, and allied professionals who serve this population.
Asking for help is one of the strongest things you can do, but it can also be one of the hardest because of past experience of not being heard, believed, or supported. Extreme stressors and traumatic events - including new or ongoing health conditions - affect every aspect of our lives and can make relationships - with family, friends, colleagues, and even healthcare providers - very challenging. The impact of these events can make us feel isolated, misunderstood, and unsupported (even by the well-intentioned). They can lead us to make choices we aren't proud of and limit our enjoyment of life in general.

Our discussions can focus on life concerns such as identity, addiction, trauma, war-related, domestic and street violence, depression and anxiety, chronic illness , death and dying, relationships, aging, body image and personal change.
I believe the transforming power of psychotherapy and coaching begins with a vital connection between you and me. Our conversations create a safe and nurturing space for you to grow in the confidence of your worth, your aspirations, and your life circumstances. From this awareness comes a deeper knowing of yourself and a more effective "hands on" capacity for dealing thoughtfully and constructively with the challenges of living. Together, we define your goals for therapy, and together we create the path to make these goals your reality. I invite you to join with me in this process.

We all have times where we feel overwhelmed, alone, dissatisfied, stuck, or worried. It helps to have somewhere to turn, where we can freely share our feelings and experiences. Often, just processing concerns with a caring, objective listener increases clarity and leads to new insights. I love helping people navigate challenges and find healing. I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, life transitions, career dissatisfaction, adjustment to parenting, adjustment to separation/divorce, grief & loss, and chronic illness and disability.
