Hello! I want to take a moment to appreciate the step that you are taking toward healing. Whatever is leading you to me, I am here.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Portland, OR
I have worked with relationships for most of my career and am passionate about the work. I focus on increasing awareness for interactional patterns, power dynamics, impact of trauma, attachment issues, and improved communication.
During graduate school I interned at TransActive Gender Center, providing mental health services for transgender/gender non-binary youth, adolescents, and their families. I continue to provide affirmative care for the community and their families.
I have extensive training and experience in working with historic, intergenerational, and complex trauma through my time providing mental health services for NARA, NW and Wolf Pack Consulting and Therapeutic Services (where I continue to work). As a relationship therapist, I understand how impactful historical/intergenterational trauma can be on a relationship system and focus much of the work on helping the couple/family identify this trauma and create strategies to minimize it's impact.
