About My Clients

I am particularly interested in exploring issues that relate to depression, anxiety, lack of fulfillment, life transitions, relationship issues, personal growth, LGBTQ issues, and polyamory & consensual non-monogamy.

My Background and Approach

I hold a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Goddard College, with a concentration in Sexual Orientation and specialized training in working with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer clients. I began my clinical work in 2015 at William Temple House, counseling low income individuals and couples in Portland, Oregon and launched my private practice in 2017. I currently serve on the Board of Directors of Existential-Humanistic NorthWest (EHNW), a professional organization that promotes the existential-humanistic perspective and philosophy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

It is my belief that within each of us lies the potential for personal growth and positive change. I use an Existential-Humanistic approach to therapy, which involves exploring and discovering one's unique and authentic self. In this work, we will explore themes such as choice, responsibility, meaning, purpose, and authenticity so that you may discover a more intentional way of being. I also believe that we experience distress when we struggle to reconcile the way things are with the way we want things to be. When this is the case, it can feel like we’ve lost control of our lives, that the world is happening to us, or we’ve lost a sense of who we are. I help clients become empowered to reclaim their lives so that they may live intentionally, authentically, and with integrity, as active players in the creation of their own life experience.
