I offer a place to feel connected, working together with horses and alpacas to understand relationship patterns, tuning in to body and mind.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Hillsboro, OR
The changes we are all experiencing amidst the current global environment can significantly increase stress levels, leading to anxiety, depression, problems in marriages/partnerships, and more. Offering a non-judgmental and peaceful space for people to air concerns and reflect is important to me. To this I add knowledge about brain and body science, how our past experiences impact our reactions to stressors, and offer tools to change unhealthy patterns and decrease feelings of overwhelm.
Teenagers are beautiful humans and I am always fascinated by the growth, development and transformation I see when working with adolescents. Over my years as a social worker, I have always gravitated to this population, and vice versa. I have led many youth groups and worked clinically with youth representing the rainbow. Issues have included: anxiety, depression, body positivity, health and wellness, learning differences, trauma, self esteem, sexual health awareness, loss and more.
I have worked with people of all ages who have been victims of physical, emotional, psychological, financial and sexual abuse. I am passionate about working with individuals with a trauma history to work toward healing and living a healthy life. I also have experience working with people who are currently experiencing abuse and offer a place to connect and share, and navigate a path to peace and wellness.
