I am a Portland based therapist who assists clients as they navigate and create their own path towards growth and fulfillment. My goal is to assist individuals with constructing their own path and viewing roadblocks as an opportunity to expand and re-evaluate their life, behaviors and thought process.
My specialties range from relational therapy (how past and current relationships effect us) to working with first responders. As a clinician who has worked in the emergency department and in corrections as a clinician (and as custody staff) I understand first hand the complexities of working in a trauma based environment. My passion for working with first responders (police officers, firefighters, corrections officers, veterans, medical staff, clinicians) began when I started working in community mental health. It is my belief that it takes a village to combat mental health and I take pride in the opportunity to build and strengthen individuals who do so much for our community!
