Relationships are important; their healthiness dictates whether we can have enjoyable interactions and open communication.
As a family therapist I am here to provide a place to understand ourselves and those we care about in a comfortable environment. I have earned a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from George Fox University and have years of counseling experience under my belt.
In my therapeutic approach I utilize family systems theory, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, emotion focused therapy and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). EMDR has been extensively researched and proven to be very effective in the treatment of trauma.
Broken down, this means that when helping you and your family, I take into account the environment, history and interactions with one another. I see children, couples, families and individuals. When using emotion focused therapy with couples the objective is to gain a deeper understanding of your emotional responses to each other and create new interactions that redefine your relationship with openness and connection. My desire as a therapist is to work collaboratively with you to move towards a healthier and more satisfying life.
I have experience working with:
~ Couples Counseling
~ Family Counseling (conflict, blended families, divorce)
~ Pre-Marital Counseling from a Christian perspective
~ Foster care and adoption
~ Behavioral issues
~ Processing life transitions (new baby, empty nesters, etc.)
~ Developing healthy coping skills
~ Anxiety and depression
