I engage clients with a collaborative, empathetic, and open-minded approach to sensitive adult topics. I support autonomy and growth in all areas of life for every individual, couple, and group. I create a space that allows you to be fully who you are without judgement or reserve, so that you can be free to define your life as you see it. We can work together to identify and fulfill goals, find balance and contentment rather than extremes, manage emotional and relational difficulties, and build satisfying relationships with the self and others. My work with clients is framed through an eclectic Humanistic-relational and psychodynamic approach, integrating elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, solutions and strengths, somatic experiencing, mindfulness, and creativity. I believe that continually growing through education and self-exploration are keys to an open-mind and an open-heart. Please note that I have a limited number of scholarship slots available.
I obtained a Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Walden University. This CACREP education included major coursework such as multicultural counseling, lifespan development, relational systems and human sexuality, crisis and trauma response, grief and loss, career and life transitions, among other topics. I successfully passed the National Counseling Exam in May 2019, which helps to prove my competence and skill in the field. I have twelve years working and volunteering in different capacities to support the mental health and well-being of individuals and communities, as well as over seven years of guided meditative practice. Some of my experience includes Mental Health First Aid, CPR/AED and Medical First Aid, Crisis Counseling, and Portland’s Neighborhood Emergency Team. I am also an active member with the ACA, the ORCA, the Oregon-ALGBTIC, the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists, and Existential Humanistic Northwest.
My aim is to help you become the person that you may have hidden away over time, reclaim your story, navigate relationships you come in connection with, and experience and heal from grief and pain associated with expectations, relationships, and impacts of the past. When you’re ready, I’m ready.
