About My Clients

Are you looking for a safe space where you can find acceptance and authenticity from your therapist? I focus on building a collaborative relationship, one where I let you feedback, needs, goals and aspiration guide treatment. I specialize in individuals with depression and anxiety along with body image issues, gender dysphoria, trauma, and medical issues.

I have my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) from Antioch University New England and my undergraduate degree from University of Oregon. I am a licensed psychologist in Oregon and Washington. I have experience and worked with individuals across the lifespan focused on individual, family, and group therapy with additional training in psychological testing. I use an integrative approach with my clients where I match interventions to the my client’s unique needs. I integrate concepts from psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness, ACT, narrative therapy, family systems and somatic therapy.
