I am preparing for maternity leave and will not be accepting new clients until after Thanksgiving. Thank you for understanding!
Licensed Professional Counselor in Gladstone, OR
I help clients to reconnect with their bodies in order to recognize, understand and tolerate emotions and find their unique triggers. We will work on what feels right for you, at the pace that is comfortable for you and occasionally include animal-assisted therapy.
I believe that you are the expert in your own life and your experiences and we will work as a team. I provide gentle insight, help you process emotions and experiences and tailor our work to meet your individual needs. We will work on what feels important to you and you will never sit through a lengthy assessment or questionnaire. You are in charge of your therapy experience and together we will unpack your story to find the right path to healing and growth.
I incorporate different creative modalities such as picture cards, drawing, clay and games when needed to help facilitate, healing, insight and growth.
I specialize in supporting people who have experienced trauma whether it from their childhood, adult relationships, work or natural disasters. I provide a safe and comfortable space where we work at a slow and personalized pace to re-build your trust in the world and your sense of safety while reducing your problematic and distressing symptoms.
Grief is complicated and can be very hard to work through on our own. I provide a safe and comfortable, non-judgmental space to explore your thoughts and emotions surrounding the loss. We will work at your own pace and begin to learn how to resolve the overwhelming emotions and start on the path to healing.
I work with clients to help reduce and eventually eliminate their anxiety without the use of medications. I utilize somatic techniques to help you learn to recognize and feel emotions in your body and then learn what to do with them to prevent anxiety and feeling overwhelmed.
