MA, Professional Counselor Associate
Accepting Clients

I am a multicultural therapist offering compassionate, EMDR, EFT, and mindfulness-based care to individuals and couples.

Associate Professional Counselor in Portland, OR
Supervised by Natasha Laumei, MA, LPC, LMHC.

About My Clients

I support clients in cultivating self-worth, healing past experiences, exploring their values and purpose, and creating safe and meaningful relationships. You may notice feeling stressed, stuck, or drained, and together we will support you toward meaningful well-being.

My Background and Approach

My goal as a therapist is to create a space where you feel empowered to find your voice amidst often contradictory familial, professional, and societal expectations. Each of us processes the world differently and I support clients to build tools for growth while feeling heard, seen and affirmed. My approach is culturally sensitive, warm, and pragmatic. I support a range of adult individuals and provide specific expertise to neurodiverse, multiracial, multicultural, and first-generation clients who may feel lost or marginalized by the mainstream narrative of American society. I utilize strengths-based, mindfulness-oriented, and intersectional methods to facilitate healing and clarity, guiding you toward meaningful well-being.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

The resilience of the human spirit inspires me, and it is a privilege to witness the transformative power of human connection. I believe that just as we can be wounded in relationships, we can also heal in them. My training in modern psychodynamics holds the relationship between client and therapist as a space of non-judgment, compassion, and an opportunity to process and make sense of the challenges you face. I have a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from Northwestern University and completed an externship in Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), as well as advanced training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Mindful Self-Compassion.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
