About My Clients

Like adults, kids can be challenged by a variety of life experiences. These experiences can range from experiencing or witnessing traumatic events to bullying to adjusting to divorce to thriving in a fast-paced, social-media-saturated, and academic-achievement-focused society and more. I also work with parents, helping them understand their children's behavior and learn to communicate love and boundaries in ways their children understand.

My Background and Approach

I believe my clients are the experts on their own lives. I also believe that life is full of experiences that shape the way we perceive ourselves and relate to others, sometimes creating patterns difficult to untangle on our own. As a counselor, my primary focus is to support clients in untangling these social-emotional-behavioral knots that limit their ability to fully embrace and accept their beautiful, unique selves. I approach the counseling process as a means for clients to better understand themselves and their relationships through the collaborative relationship that exists between client and counselor. I work from a person-centered experiential approach that incorporates mindfulness and internal-family systems principles. I received my Master’s degree in Couple, Marriage and Family Counseling from Portland State University. I also have special training in Child-centered Play Therapy, Child-parent Relationship Training, and Mindfulness-based psychotherapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Challenges are a part of life. And we all deserve to experience ease and joy from time to time. My goal is to help kids and adults trust in their capacity to do hard things and, also, be able to sit back and enjoy the easy times when they come along.
