I am a compassionate, respectful, non-judgmental therapist with a private practice in NE Portland. I have an MA in Counseling Psychology from Lewis and Clark College. I am also a certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor CADC1 and am a Licensed Professional Counselor.
It is my belief that people have the skills, courage and ability to overcome their life problems when provided the opportunity to safely explore what the challenges are and what skills they already possess to address them. As your therapist, I will work to understand your symptoms, stressors, problems and concerns. I will assist you in identifying what it is you would like to change about yourself, situation or beliefs in order to achieve your best self.
I work with adult individuals, adolescents, and couples.
Areas of specialty include:
Unhealthy relationship patterns
Low self-worth/ low self esteem
Self-exploration and understanding
Substance abuse assessment
