Approach & About

So often, we come to counseling not because we don't know what we "should” or “could" do differently, but because we feel stuck. I am committed to walking alongside you and providing opportunities for you to move through challenges, to heal, and to connect with your inner resilience. 

My theoretical approach is rooted in mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, motivational interviewing and solution focused therapy. I approach my work through a trauma-informed lens, which means that I prioritize a sense of safety and compassion when I work with clients. I have specialized experience and training in perinatal mental health, meaning your mental and emotional well-being during pregnancy, birth and postpartum stages. I am also a registered yoga instructor and often call on the tools of yoga and mindfulness practices. Depending on your needs, we may use some or all of these strategies to achieve your goals. 

I come to private practice with a background in primary care medical clinics providing integrated behavioral health counseling. I graduated from Portland State University in 2011 with a Masters in Social Work, during which time I completed internships with a refugee resettlement program and at OHSU’s Center for Women's Health.

I am licensed by the State of Oregon as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), a designation given to social workers in clinical practice who have had over 3500 hours of work, have spent 2000 hours providing clinical services, and have demonstrated knowledge of clinical practices on a certifying exam.
