About My Clients

My clients are often looking for a sense of clarity, direction, and perspective as they go through significant life transitions. They may feel disillusioned with their work or relationships, or struggle to let go of habits that don't serve them anymore. They have a sense that a different way is possible, but are not sure how to get there. Some are just taking the first steps towards change, and others are already on their path and want support as they learn from and integrate their experiences.

My Background and Approach

I am passionate about helping people to learn about themselves and I believe in the potential for all people to have a unique and satisfying life. I bring over a decade's experience in the field of natural health to my work, and am inspired by the original meaning of psychotherapy - "the healing of the soul." I am a registered LPC Intern in the state of Oregon, supervised by Daniel Donohue, LCSW (lic #6067). I received my master's degree in Integral Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, CA, and receive ongoing training from Gestalt Therapy Training Center Northwest and other organizations. My clinical experience includes working as an outpatient drug and alcohol counselor, a school-based mental health therapist, and supporting people struggling with extreme states. I specialize in life transitions, harm reduction, and the integration of life-changing events, including psychedelic experiences.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am inspired by the original meaning of psychotherapy - "the healing of the soul." I believe that true healing happens when we are connected with ourselves, with others, and with something greater than ourselves, such as the natural world. I love being a therapist because I get to support others in their healing process, and I am also challenged to learn and grow every day. I am guided by a basic belief that all people have a tremendous capacity for change, and that we all contain within us a natural impulse towards healing. I also believe that there is something in each of us that is pure and untarnished by life - the clear nature that we eventually discover as we look deep within. Change is often a scary process, but it is also an exciting one, with the potential to lead us to a greater sense of meaning and wholeness. I look forward to supporting you as you take new steps in your life, discover new aspects of yourself, and make choices that bring you closer to the life you desire.
