My Background and Approach

Uncovering clients strengths and learning how to work well from those strengths is my specialty. When you know who you are and how to use the tools you've learned along the way, you can transform your own lives by challenging patterns that no longer serve you. Using self compassion and mindfulness to uncover who you are and what you want out of your life is the goal I hold for each of my clients. Healing from painful experiences and negative beliefs is a real possibility for you and I would love to walk with you through that discovery. I received a master's degree in Counseling in 2008 and have been practicing individual and couples counseling in Portland since 2015. I believe my role as a therapist is to hold up a mirror to my clients so they can have a clearer picture of who they are. When clients are able to gather the information they need, they are able to move closer to who they want to be and how to get what they want out of life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

It's very important for me to practice what I preach and so I've been on my own journey into changing my life using self compassion as my guide. When we are able to see ourselves as deserving of love and growth and healing, every aspect of our lives change. Walking with clients through this discovery of their true self lights me up and challenges me to continue learning and growing into the kind of person and therapist I want to be. My husband and my two kids also inspire me to continue growing into who I believe myself to be in the different roles I hold. My kids have been my greatest teachers in curiosity and kindness. Being a midwestern transplant living in Portland has been a dream come true for me and you can find me playing outside or reading at some point most days.
