Joining you in the path to ease and heal those traumas, heartaches, anxiety, depression and or learning new communication or identity.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Portland, OR
How we attached to our significant caregivers in early childhood leads us to desire, gravitate and repel others. Understanding these styles can aid in seeking healthier relationships.
Worked extensively in this modality since 2004. Understanding how we think impacts our behaviors and emotions. Reframing those thoughts can influence our experience with others and the world.
Trained in EMDR. I have worked with one time incidents with accidents or life threatening experiences and complex traumas with survivors of abuse and combat.
I am queer and have focused my work with the LGBTQ community. I have worked with transgender clients who are considering or are transitioning or needing support in navigating this world
I am EMDR trained and understand most mental health concerns to be rooted in a traumatic event or witnessing a traumatic experience that can be reprocessed to be less intrusive on your feelings, interactions and insights.
I have joined others in therapy working on general and social anxiety or phobias since 2004 with clients reporting increased relief from the therapy provided.
