I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have been a practicing mental health provider in the Portland area for over 15 years.
I work with individuals, couples, and families, including both adolescents and adults. My approach to therapy is strengths-based, meaning that together we will focus on your strengths and foster your ability to make positive change for yourself. I currently work primarily with Internal Family Systems, and am also trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and EMDR. I utilize aspects of several different therapeutic approaches that help you to become aware of the lifelong patterns and habits that are preventing you from living a fuller life.
Each person has the internal resources needed to make adjustments in their life. As a therapist, it is my job to help you learn how to access those resources in a healthy and constructive way.
