Journey of Self Discovery, LLC
The wound is the place where Light enters you -Rumi-
Life is full of ups and downs. We celebrate happy times and navigate our way through the
challenges. When unexpected trauma and tragedy occur, we are often left feeling overwhelmed
and disconnected from ourselves and those we love. It takes courage to seek help. Finding the
right person who will listen, understand and empower you with confidence to fully embrace your
life is well worth the effort.
I offer a comfortable space to discuss the unique set of circumstances impacting your ability to
manage life. I draw from several well grounded psychological approaches such as Attachment
Theory, Mindful Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Trauma informed Therapy and adapt
them to meet your needs and goals. I am a 200 YTT instructor and recognize the impact of
trauma and emotions in our body. Together we will identify both your known and unknown
strengths and resources then put them into practice. Your confidence will expand as you utilize
your new insights and self awareness in your everyday life. Through patience and practice,
your connections with others will strengthen and your life will become full of a stronger sense of
purpose and joy in the life we are meant to have.
My background is in Social Work. I graduated in 2004 with my Masters Degree from California
State University, Sacramento. I counseled at risk youth in Stockton, California from 2004-07
before moving to Oregon and making Portland my home. After spending a decade in hospice
social work, I have gained much wisdom from my terminally ill patient’s and their loved ones.
Ask me about my history in supporting those who struggle with the emotional impact of chronic
medical conditions such as Diabetes, or MS.
I offer affordable psychotherapy to individuals who qualify. My fees are $40 for a 50 minute
session. I do not bill for insurance at this time. Therapist and client is key therefore a one time
30 minute face to face consultation is at no charge. I hope that you find the right person to meet
your needs and wish you the very best on your own Journey of Self Discovery.
