Currently not accepting new clients. Hey there! I work with ambitious, creative individuals and couples that need a little help.
Registered Marriage and Family Therapist Intern in Portland,, OR
Supervised by Marcia Micheals, PhD
In my graduate training, I had several opportunities to work people with varying cultural identification. Your culture is a system, it can impact you and your relationships more than you realize. I will not shy away from topics regarding race, class, religion, sexual orientation, sub-cultures, white privilege, etc. If applicable to therapy, we will discuss our own possible differences and how that may impact our therapeutic alliance. I will not ask you to be my educator during your therapy time
As a Marriage and Family Therapist, my degree is in understanding problems within a system. A couple is a system. Problems for an individual can manifest differently within a couple. I have co-led retreats for military couples as well as counseled several parents. I am trained in the Gottman Method (level 1) and in attachment theory.
My graduate program education in Couple's Counseling was largely based in attachment theory. Attachment theory is the basis for Emotionally Focused Therapy in which I have been trained as a therapist as well participated as a client.
