Therapy is a space to feel safe and accepted while we explore the most vulnerable parts of self. I am passionate about holding space and exploring those parts that hold on to trauma and survival skills that may escalate and interfere with well-being later in life. My background and experience include individual support for adults healing from trauma, grief and loss, adjustment to acute and chronic illness , personality disorders, anxiety disorders and depression.

If you've ever watched a good movie or seen a compelling drama on the stage, you know the story doesn't resolve itself until the second act. Just as "life imitates art," you may experience situations, thoughts, and emotions road blocking your "second act." I would be honored to help navigate life choices amidst these roadblocks through my Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

You can learn more about my Oregon teletherapy practice & schedule an appointment on moonshine-therapy.com. I help adults effectively navigate relationships, stress, and mental health concerns. Additionally, I help people manage physical health issues and possibly shift diet, exercise, sleep, and stress management. I balance strength-based trauma-informed perspectives, cultural humility, and validation with increasing life skills. Folks use therapy in a variety of ways. Sometimes it's about finding solutions and achieving goals, and other times it's about getting support, feeling validated, and letting some of the stress out.

Currently accepting clients. You will receive the fastest response back by emailing me. Sometimes seeking support can often feel like an exposing and vulnerable process, yet it doesn't have to be. Unpacking deep-rooted patterns and beliefs takes time, and can happen when we feel safe enough to disclose to others. I value connection and relationship in my practice, and aim to create a space where that processing can truly happen. I assist clients in identifying their patterns and core beliefs, and skills to regulate their emotions while focusing on their goals.

I am autistic, and a neurodiversity-affirming professional. This means I do not seek to change others, but focus on strength and adaptation, not assimilation. We can dig into life's fundamental questions: Who am I, what do I want, why am I here, and who should journey with me? I am not a therapist, but instead, I specialize in consulting and coaching those who want to develop healthier relationships with themselves and others. Our work together might focus on recovering from past mistakes, understanding how we came to those mistakes, and learning to make different choices and decisions in the future. It might be learning to say no.

What type of Salem mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Salem?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
