Hello, I'm a queer identified counselor who works with a diverse group of clients around issues that create stress, anxiety, and depression.
Licensed Professional Counselor Intern in Portland, OR
Supervised by Catherine Nyhan LPC License # C1945
Parts Work! I talk about parts of ourselves that "fill up the living room" and crowd out other parts.
I use a systemic and non-pathologizing approach in order to look at the different life stressors that our society, environments, family, and educational systems have created and imposed upon us through time.
I use different approaches for those who are experiencing different symptoms, or problems in life. These approaches, including CBT, or ACT techniques, show strong results and offer insights to specific symptoms.
I use a person centered approach to encourage and support the client and to guide the therapeutic process and aid in the client’s process of self-discovery.
Anxiety can feel completely overwhelming, can make us tired, and can interfere with our daily functioning in our relationships and lives. I can help you get to the bottom of this while offering coping skills to manage anxiety in the moment.
Life brings us many changes and I will be here to help support you and guide you through these transitions.
Depression can feel overwhelming, and can keep us from experiencing all that life has to offer. I can help you get to the bottom of this and figure out how to cope with and change behaviors that can lead to a more content and joyful experience of life.
