I am a licensed professional counselor with a background in individual, couples and family work. I graduated from Lewis & Clark College in 1997 with a MS in Counseling Psychology, then volunteered in domestic violence shelters, worked for Oregon Youth Authority at Hillcrest Youth Correctional Facility, and in adolescent residential treatment facilities under Morrison Center and Trillium Family services as a therapist and clinical manager. I entered private practice in 2003 and I currently focus on helping parents with stress management, relationship, and parenting skills since becoming a parent myself in 2005. I utilize a primarily Cognitive Behavioral and mindfulness based approach to my therapeutic work. My office is N Portland where I have cultivated a professional community of healing practitioners, whom I share space with at The North Portland Growth Place!
