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.
