About My Clients

It takes courage to change & strength to keep moving forward through life's transitions. I support teens & young adults who are struggling with the stressors & anxieties of school, friends, families & life. Many of whom may also be experiencing other emotional or behavioral responses to the challenges they are experiencing. Together, we look at the relationships between emotions, thoughts, behaviors & life events, as we find the coping skills that work best to help create a calmer sense of self.

My Background and Approach

My aim is to support and help teens and young adults find the tools that work best for them as they identify their sense of self, discover their own personal coping skills and learn new ways to express their emotions in a safe and healthy way. My style is supportive, interactive and compassionate, with a splash of humor. I received my Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology from Lewis and Clark Graduate School. I specialized in children, adolescents & adults using a variety of individual and group counseling modalities. My experience has been working with children, adolescents and adults who have witnessed and/or experienced divorce, trauma, grief, loss, anxiety, depression, life transitions, self-esteem and self-worth issues, as well as witnessing and/or experiencing domestic violence & intimate partner violence. I have also worked with children & teens, in both shelter and residential treatment facilities, who were experiencing serious to severe emotional & behavioral difficulties.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I strongly believe in reducing the stigma around mental illness within the child, teen and young adult populations. So many of the young people in our communities are struggling with the stressors and high expectations of school, sports, their futures, etc. These high expectations and stressors can then lead to anxiety and depression, as well as dysregulated and disconnected relationships with families and peers. My passion is to help our young population navigate through their challenges and come out the other side feeling proud of themselves, accomplished, and knowing they are able to get through the ups and downs they are experiencing as they put into practice the coping skills they have gained in therapy.
