About My Clients

Are you struggling with a life transition? Do you need support with school or work stress or relationships? Are you curious about coaching for success with ADHD or autism? My style is warm and authentic and I like to support people in their struggles, at the same time encouraging growth. Specializing in work with emerging adults, I have specific expertise with addictions, neurodivergence, anxiety, depression and grief. Gender affirming and LGBTQIA+ informed, working only with 18+ currently.

My Background and Approach

Therapy practice is full, accepting ADHD coaching clients July 2023 through December. While talk therapy is often the go-to, you are also welcome to ease into therapy with non-confrontative modalities of music, art, writing, or relax with Otter if that is preferred. Otter is my 5 year old therapy dog in the office, he may also make appearances during telehealth. Through education, creative approaches and curious, open-minded investigation, I really believe change is truly possible. Today we are faced with a fast-paced world, full of questions and unknowns. In therapy, we will slow things down and see what you are really looking for. I utilize existential-humanistic and narrative approaches to understand your story with IFS, CBT, DBT and coaching tools. As of 2023, I am only accepting clients who are open to occasional telehealth sessions as every few months as I work remotely for several weeks per year. When not working remotely, in person sessions are available in Salem, OR.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that all persons are capable of living through their best self by discovering their personal narrative that incorporates the meaning and purpose for their lives. I know that every person has a purpose, and every animal too! I have worked with my own grief, anxiety, and depression and, most recent discovery: an ADHD diagnosis. Through finding alternatives to living IN the problems, I was able to find ways to live WITH my struggles, not suffering because of them. I LOVE to travel, find new places that teach me about history and about myself, and meet new people. I enjoy reading about history and finding time to be in nature or on the water in a canoe or kayak. My favorite place in Salem is the dog park of course!
