Philosophy and Approach

I believe that counseling offers tremendous potential for healing and growth both immediately and long term. Together, we seek to bring our full presence in order to establish a safe and supportive environment that fosters lasting life changes. My approach is integral and holistic, and I value all paths to healing and growth. Drawing from a wide variety of interventions, philosophies and pedagogies, my approach is completely individualized to each person and is both supportive and accountable. In committing to our work together, you begin to take active steps toward experiencing the life that you wish to have. I offer individual and couples therapy sessions for adults, online via telehealth. My style is open, direct, kind and patient.

Formal Training and Education

I am a seasoned clinician with over 20 years of experience of direct care and supervision. I hold PhDs in Psychology and Integrative Mental Health and certificates of specialization in Hypnosis, Spiritual Guidance and Telecare. Further, as a condition of my licensure with the state of Oregon, I am required to participate in ongoing continuing education.

Teletherapy only.
