(Initial Consultation offered at no cost)
I believe that healing and recovery is possible for everyone, no matter how big the obstacles. Healing is a journey that requires trust, courage and hope. In our work together, we will collaboratively break down the walls of stigma, heal past traumas and gain skills to cope with life’s challenges.
Everyone’s story deserves to be heard and every individual has the power to write their own narrative.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Oregon. I earned my Master’s degree in social work from Califonia State University in Long Beach in 2008. I have 15 years experience at non-profit agencies that serve adults who experience mental illness, poverty, and other co-occuring disorders including medical and addictions.
In my work, I learned that human relationships are at the core of healing and transformation. I tailor my treatment approach to best facilitate healing and recovery. These approaches may include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness-based therapy, Narrative Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Strengths-based and Person-Centered therapy.
I also offer clinical supervision towards licensure for clinicians.
Areas of experience:
Pregnancy and Post-partum issues
My fee is $75 for a 50-minute session, but I do offer a sliding fee scale for those experiencing financial hardship and I offer a 30 minute complimentary consultation to see if we are a good therapeutic fit.
