Education and Experience
I currently hold an MA degree in Counseling Psychology from the Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling. Major course work included human growth and development, current, evidence-based therapy modalities, couples, group, adolescent and adult treatment. As a Licensee of the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists, I abide by its Code of Ethics. To maintain my license I am required to complete continuing education courses and training that are relevant to my profession.
I have offered mental health therapy in private practice, partial hospital eating disorders treatment program, mental health agency setting, and gambling addictions services since 2005. I am inspired by family/relationship dynamics, attachment, human development, trauma-informed healing and wellness, and client-centered therapy rooted in compassion and unconditional positive regard. I believe that a thoughtful, present-minded approach to any therapeutic
technique or theory can offer lasting results to your mood, health, ambition and relationships.
I have specialized training in trauma-informed counseling, mindfulness and body-based therapies.
In addition to my counseling credentials, I teach graduate classes as an adjunct faculty member at the Lewis & Clark Graduate School in the Counseling Program.
I have 500-hr Yoga certification through Yoga Alliance. I have taught yoga classes and private/couples yoga since 2003. I offer private, couples and small group yoga as needed and therapeutically appropriate. Yoga is one of several types of mindfulness-based tools I offer in my practice. If you believe that a supportive, safe physical practice is something you’d like to explore as a part of therapy, please contact me. As a 500-hr Registered Yoga Teacher, I am required to complete continuing education as it pertains to offering safe and ethical yoga-based intervention options in the scope of my practice.
I am a devoted mother of two young girls and enjoy spending time with my family outdoors, enjoying our vibrant community. A life-long writer and avid reader, I enjoy the richness narrative and storytelling offers life.
