Counselor in Beaverton, OR
I have extensive experience treating adolescents from a variety of backgrounds. I am able to build unique connections with adolescents that enhance their therapeutic experience. I have worked with a variety of teens with attachment difficulties stemming from early childhood, acute and chronic trauma, teens in the foster care system, teens who have been impacted by domestic violence or teen dating violence, and teens struggling with anxiety, depression and mild autism spectrum disorder.
I have received extensive training in treating the effects of domestic violence in adults, teens and children. I continue to work primarily with clients who have witnessed or experienced domestic violence in various capacities throughout their lives. I also work with adult survivors of domestic violence and their children together to help establish healthy healing dynamics after the family has left an abusive dynamic.
Much of my background has been treating the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I have extensive experience working with chronic trauma often rooted in childhood. I also have ongoing experience working with attachment difficulties that often stem from childhood trauma. I work with survivors of trauma across all age groups and in a variety of formats such as talk therapy, creative interventions, and play therapy techniques with young children.
