My Background and Approach
We'll work together to look at how your life and environment contribute to your mental and physical well-being, build on your strengths, and incorporate new tools. I've worked with people in some of their hardest moments to find their way through with balance, peace and resilience. I’ve spent the last 15 years getting to know bodies by trying out various professional and personal lenses including public health, massage therapy, functional nutrition treatment, organic farming, outdoor education, meditation and mindfulness techniques, & body-oriented trauma treatment (I'm a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner). I work online with individual adults and adolescents in the state of OR as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist . I completed an MA in Counseling Psychology with a specialization in Somatic Psychology from California Institute of Integral Studies in 2012. I came home to the Pacific Northwest so that I could do the work I love, providing counseling to people with healing bodies.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
There is a brave and resourceful force inside of you that has gotten you this far, and that knows your life could feel more satisfying, and that you can feel more fully yourself. Being exhausted and in pain from a health condition, anxiety, or grief may have left you wondering who you are and how you can move forward. I'm confident that you can connect to that spark inside of you again. I work with individuals to look at how their whole life contributes to their mental and physical well-being. I connect to each person where they are, using body-oriented and talk-based approaches. Together, I work with clients to access the wisdom of their body, improve stress-management, increase self-love and self-acceptance and strengthen their relationships. I have experience working with people from from diverse racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds, in bodies of all sizes and ablities, & facing LGBTQQIA-specific issues. Care is provided in a safe, supportive, and compassionate environment.
