 CURRENT OPENINGS! In-person & Telehealth

I have tremendous admiration for people who are willing to show up for themselves and take on the work that leads to growth. And it’s ok if you don’t know where to start or what to expect. With deep gratitude and sincerity, I offer you a space to connect, be listened to, and learn more about yourself.

Clients describe me as down-to-earth, easygoing, and truly genuine. They find they can be themselves with me, build trust, and do the work they’d like to do. Using self-reflection and skill development, we can make so much progress towards improving your relationships and quality of life.  

I work well for those who need a gentle heart, a calm presence, and kind humor in the mix, too. If you need a corrective emotional experience with a therapist or you’ve never been to therapy before, I’ll help get you oriented to therapy and we’ll design the time to be useful and fitting to you, your personality, and what you need to get out of it. 

Other clients that I work well for include neurodivergent individuals balancing authenticity with navigating through neurotypical norms, people struggling with self-image, stress, anxiety, and depression, and people who are in recovery maintenance or who are “sober curious,” navigating the role of substance use in their lives. 

As your counselor, I’ll be in your corner to help you get a handle on where you are and where you want to get to. I am here to provide you a space where you can explore your experience, express yourself without fear of judgment and practice new approaches that you can apply outside of therapy.

 I hold a Master of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and have provided counseling in in-patient
substance abuse rehabilitation facilities and in community mental health organizations in Tennessee and North Carolina. I have returned home to Portland to continue this work in the Pacific Northwest.

I take a person-centered approach pulling from CBT, DBT, ACT, and mindfulness principles and rely on exploring the client’s expertise on themselves. Working holistically, I consider the roles of nutrition, movement, sleep, connection, screentime, spirituality, and play in our well-being. Together we can help you face, understand, manage, and enjoy the experience of being you.

I thank you so much for the chance to get to grow with you and I am honored to do my part in working with you.
