About My Clients

Have you lost someone, experienced a significant change in your life, or find yourself feeling overwhelmed by what life has thrown at you? I’m here to support you in finding your new normal and help you feel less alone. As your therapist, I will work together with you to help you get from where you are to where you want to be. I specialize in issues of grief and loss, trauma, anxiety, sexual abuse, parenting, and overall life transitions.

My Background and Approach

I am here to support you and accompany you on your path toward healing. Healing is about more than just surviving, it’s about thriving; and it can take time and extra support to get there. My therapeutic style relies on authenticity, empathy, and trust to provide a supportive environment for growth and change. I approach therapy as a collaboration and offer a space that is trauma-informed and free of judgement, recognizing the value and uniqueness of your life experience. I use clinical approaches like EMDR, psychodynamic theory, attachment-based therapy, mindfulness, and cognitive-behavioral interventions. I work primarily with adults but have extensive experience working with children, adolescents, and families; and have provided therapy in a variety of settings including schools, hospitals, and community mental health centers. I currently work exclusively through telehealth for clients based in Oregon or Illinois.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I'm passionate about what I do because of my own personal experiences with grief and coping with mental health challenges. Through my work I’ve been witness to the incredible resiliency of those who’ve experienced trauma; and a person’s capacity for growth and change when facing challenges. As a social worker I rely on a systems lens that focuses on treating the whole person within their environment; because the truth is, no one’s problems exist in a vacuum. We are interconnected, shaped by our experiences: how we grew up, how we are treated, what access or barriers we’ve experienced, and whether we’re able to get our needs met. I weigh all of this in determining how to treat the issues you bring to therapy. You are the expert on your life, and you get to set the pace and depth to which we work. Together we’ll identify and leverage your own inherent strengths to help you thrive.
