Individual and Couple's Therapy
Practice location: Lake Oswego - Westlake Phone: 971-727-5858 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have had the privilege of working with married and committed couples for more than 15
years. When they come to me, many couples find themselves on the brink of splitting up.
My role is not to assign blame or to assume that, as the expert, I have all the answers.
Instead, I teach couples how to turn toward one another again so they can offer mutual
understanding and support. Working as collaborative partners, we seek to turn their
relationship into a place of love and respect.
As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I use many helpful tools in working with
couples. I am trained in the Gottman Method, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Relational
Life Therapy and the Developmental Model advanced by The Couples Institute. I
embrace more than one method because I know from experience that each couple’s
needs are unique.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and I have been practicing since 2004. I
hold a Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of San
Francisco and a bachelor’s degree in business from the College of Notre Dame. I
worked as an intern in the Eureka Union School District in Granite Bay, CA and The
White House Counseling Center in Carmichael, CA before starting my private practice in
Northern California. I moved to Oregon in 2018 and started a private practice. I currently
practice online and in the Lake Oswego Wise Counsel & Comfort office.
During my free time I enjoy travelling, gardening, reading mysteries, and going on long
walks with my dog.
