We all have the power to heal, but we don’t have to do it alone. Sometimes we need help getting through a tough time, expanding our awareness, or learning new skills to lead a healthier and more balanced life. If you are considering counseling, I hope you’ll read about my approach below and contact me if you’d like to work together.
I believe in a supportive, collaborative, and empowering approach to counseling that draws on your inherent strength and wisdom. Offering counseling services to individuals and families, I practice from a therapeutic framework blending Humanistic, Gestalt, and Internal Family Systems approaches. Our work together will be empowering, effective, and nonpathologizing.
I hold a master’s degree in mental health counseling and a graduate certificate in addictions counseling from Portland State University. I am an adjunct faculty member at Portland State University and past president of the Oregon Counseling Association. I am also the author of an award-winning children’s book about learning to love what we’re afraid of.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Oregon. My license number is C3952.
These are some common areas of struggle for many people. I can help you with:
- adjustment to life’s transitions and changes
- anxiety and depression
- personal identity
- spiritual identity and development
- grief and loss
I offer an initial, no-cost 30-minute consultation. Once we begin working together, my fee is $120 per session for individuals and $140 per session for couples and families. If you’d like to work with me, please don’t let money be a barrier. If you are under financial hardship, I may be able to offer a sliding-fee scale.
