About My Clients

My favorite clients are those with a lot of love for their partners-no matter what trying to make better or navigate through. Therapists are my best source of referrals-bringing themselves on in, or sending their most challenging couples. Since 2016, I am really digging couples who are working through gender transition in one partner and are mutually supportive, so much so I started groups for the cis spouses and also couples. I love to grow things and relationships, as well as antiracism.

My Background and Approach

Licensed in 2 states, and building couples strengthening and repair as my primo focus is how I can work with the most difficult couples or even those who need event based support and move them quickly on to things to do differently for more positivity. My experience has taught me that even when suffering, a couple can come back and get on track to building their love habits if they have an advanced trained, Gottman method counselor who knows the research on what to plant and what to weed out in relationships. LGBTQ-couples and transgender coming out couples-all in my wheelhouse for many years. Antiracism-been a work in progress for many years but amping it up by getting Race Talks PDX trained and mentored has opened so much more awareness and action for me.
