About My Clients

You are smart and know that you deserve better and you don't know why but you keep ending up in the same struggle and you are sick of it. You are motivated and want better for yourself. You are often stuck in relationships where your needs aren't getting met. There are places that you are very successful and this confuses you even more because you don't know why you can't fix those other problem areas of your life. I look forward to helping you in those places you are stuck!! You matter!

My Background and Approach

I will offer you an approach that can radically change your life because it changes HOW you see yourself and how you approach yourself. Your world cannot be different if you continue to treat yourself in ways that degrade your heart, body and soul. How you see you impacts everything - friends, relationships, family, sex, body, finances, career...EVERYTHING! My focus is in teaching you how to listen to your own cues. You will learn how to be more tuned in to authentic needs, not those filtered by depression and anxiety. You'll learn how you are inaccurately given information about your needs, thoughts, emotions through socialization. You'll learn how your mind and brain impact your reality. You'll learn how to tell the difference an authentic and conditioned reaction. If you have trauma or painful life experiences, you'll learn how to respond to those in a way that heals and releases them, rather than repressing or reliving them. It's a beautiful journey.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

This work in an honor, a privilege and necessary. People don't know what they don't know. I have done my own work and had transformation from addiction, paralyzing depression, anxiety and trauma. I continue to do my own work and believe transformation and healing is available to anyone who wants to do the work. I've been practicing psychotherapy for 22 years and see myself doing this work until I die. Compassion is for everyone! I am a cisgender, white woman who experiences privilege and I'm continually open to my unconscious biases getting exposed. I am an ally of those who are oppressed. I LOVE travel, sports (specifically basketball and volleyball), our 2 amazings sons and our fabulous dog Haley. We are huge UO Duck fans but I prefer games on the TV rather than in person. I hate commercials and loud noise, but if there is music, I will dance, much to my children's dismay.

I have experience with the following
  • Agnosticism
  • Buddhism
  • Christianity
  • Interfaith
