A little about me.
I believe in the uniqueness of all people, and with that in mind, practice
Person-Centered and Existential-Humanistic therapy. I believe that therapy is an opportunity for clients
to come into a safe space to discuss the challenges they face in their life and process the meanings that
have been made in the past and are being made now.
I believe in a systemic approach to therapy, which holds to the understanding that we affect and are affected by the family and community groups we come from and are a part of. In our journey together, I will rely on evidenced-based theories to guide our sessions, in particular Solution Focused, Structured, and Strength based practices, as well as some Motivational Interviewing and behavior focused interventions
I completed a master’s degree in Couple, Marriage, and Family Counseling from George Fox University in 2017. In addition, I have focused on children, youth, and parents, including Play Therapy, Sandtray Therapy, and Child Parent Relationship Training/Therapy.
I have done continued study in grief and change therapy, Chronic and terminal illness, LGBTQIA+, and Autism Spectrum Disorder. I also hold a master’s degree in teaching from Pacific University and taught middle and high school for eight years.
