My Background and Approach

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, which means that I focus on the whole family, not just the problems of one individual. Even when working with you individually, I will keep in mind the current family context and as well as any patterns that may have been passed down from the family you grew up in. I take a solution-focused approach, meaning I will work collaboratively with you to create goals and identify and build upon your strengths you already have. I am also trained in Child-Parent Psychotherapy, an approach that is specific to treating trauma (domestic violence, abuse, loss of or separation from a parent, attachment disruptions) in young children (0-6) through a combination of play-based treatment and parent involvement and education.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that parents and children are both doing the best they can. I am a parent myself and understand how challenging this role can be sometimes. I also believe that families can look a lot of different ways, and there is no one right way to parent or one superior family structure. Single parents, blended families, families with mixed races and cultures, polyamorous families, LGBT families, and adoptive families are all welcome in my office without judgment. In my personal life, I have been a single parent and am now in a blended family with a partner who is from a different race and culture than my own and my son's (we're both white), so I have my own lived experience with these issues. I live in Portland, OR with my partner and son. On the weekends, I'm usually out hiking and exploring the outdoors (my favorite thing about the PNW). I make it to as many Blazers games as I can during basketball season and spend the rainier season knitting and reading at home.
