Individual and Couple’s Therapist
I am passionate about counseling with couples and individuals from all walks of life. My specialty is working with trauma and relationship injuries, whether in the past or currently occurring, and I welcome clients who may be under extreme levels of stress or experiencing unmanageable conflict in their relationships. My approach to mental health is from a holistic, wellness based perspective, meaning that I believe all people have the strengths they need inherently to realize greater quality of life. My role as the therapist is to walk with you on this path and help facilitate growth through non-judgmental interaction, respect, and well-grounded therapeutic interventions tailored for each client’s unique needs.
I also recognize the larger interpersonal and institutional factors that impact people, and will work with my clients as needed to address these factors whether inside or beyond the therapy room. This includes approaching therapy collaboratively with other treatment providers or organizations in ways designed with each client to best support them. I am committed to honoring diversity and multi-cultural values in my practice.
I have spent the last ten years working with families impacted by incarceration and individuals facing execution or life without parole sentences as a mitigation and biopsychosocial history specialist. I received my clinical training from George Fox University and earned a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2017. I completed my Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy Pre-law and Spanish at Loyola University New Orleans in 2007. I am currently registered as an intern with the Oregon State Board of Professional Counselors pursuing licensure as a professional counselor (LPC).
I was born and raised in a small rural community in Oregon and spent ten years living and working in a variety of communities in the deep south. I practice Relational-Cultural Therapy and also have experience and training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and mindfulness practice in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh.
I am a member of the American Counseling Association, the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies and the National Alliance of Sentencing Advocates and Mitigation Specialists.
