My Background and Approach

My approach to therapy tends to be educational; I enjoy sharing resources, tools and handouts as well as conversing with clients. I see my role as asking useful, thought-provoking questions and giving honest, caring feedback. I have worked with children in the past but my practice is now for adults. When I opened my private practice I had experience in community mental health, medical and crisis settings. I studied the research-based approach to couples therapy and devoted myself to obtaining certification through the Gottman Institute in Seattle. Once I completed that program I pursued certification as a Sex Therapist with AASECT, the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists. Both these programs require that the therapist demonstrate competence through supervision and involved ongoing study. I am continuously learning about therapy and ways to integrate principles of racial and social justice, concerns related to gender, and envisioning possible futures.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have been involved in social, racial and economic justice for many years. I am from a working-class, East Coast family and have always lived and worked in multicultural environments. I bring an enduring awareness of intersectionality, meaning the effects of multiple systems of oppression, to conversations in therapy. I have been involved in Don't Shoot Portland, the local organization representing Black Lives Matter and I currently volunteer as a group facilitator at Q Center.
