About My Clients

Are you a parent who has been feeling overwhelmed? Are you unsure how to support your child and worried about their "big emotions" or response to a recent life change? A teen who feels on-edge, is isolating, and just not yourself? A person who is stressed and just not sure how to cope anymore? These are difficult feelings to sit with on your own. I can support you in listening and together we can come up with ways to shift the current patterns.

My Background and Approach

I received my Master's of Social Work degree from Portland State University in 2015. I have worked as a therapist with children, teens, families, and individuals for the last 6 years in a variety of settings including in the community, schools, teen residential, therapeutic preschool, and office based. As a therapist I am curious, flexible, nonjudgemental, and supportive of where you are and where you want to go. My experience includes helping folks with depression, anxiety, stress, loss and grief, family conflict, and exploring identity, gender, or sexuality. I also support children and families to strengthen attachment and positive connection, increase emotional awareness and regulation, and broaden parenting strategies. I strive to be culturally sensitive and LGBTQIA+ affirming. Most of my experience has been with children but I love people of all ages!

I offer online counseling in the following states:
