About My Clients

I support teens & young adults who are struggling with the stressors & anxieties of school, friends, families and life. Many of whom may also be experiencing other emotional or behavioral responses to the challenges they are experiencing. Using an integrated and holistic approach, we look at the relationships between emotions, thoughts, behaviors & life events. Through this process, finding the coping skills that work best to help create a calmer sense of self unfolds.

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 young adults who have witnessed and/or experienced divorce, trauma, grief, loss, anxiety, depression, life transitions, self-esteem and self-worth issues. 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, college, 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 with a strong sense of self worth, 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. A bit about me...I love spontaneous adventures & explorations with my family & friends, along with taking time out of life's daily responsibilities every so often to enjoy a mental health day together. Being a boy mom feeds & nourishes my soul as we navigate through this world together.
