Much of my work is anchored in working with relationships as the central skill, rather than any particular technique or tool. A lot of what drives my approach is from the framework of Relational- Cultural Theory (RCT). This is built on the premise that we need connections to flourish, and that isolation is a major source of suffering for people at both a personal and cultural level.
I received my Masters degree in Community Counseling from Lewis & Clark's Graduate School. I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of settings and with a range of identities and experiences. This has taught me a particular humility in working with my clients. I have a speciality certification in Ecopsychology, which acknowledges human connection with other life. I am also a Certified Daring Way facilitator, which is based on Dr. Brené Brown's research of vulnerability and shame. I bring a deep curiosity to my work with individuals, couples, and groups.
