I believe that the counseling experience is a sacred one. You, as the client, have the power to make healthy and helpful choices in your life. It is my role to assist you in this journey.


I graduated in 2006 with a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon. I have been fully licensed as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists since 2010. Since 2005, I have been working with teens, adults, and families around a variety of life challenges. Some of the struggles I can help with include managing stress and anxiety, reducing depression, improving self-esteem/self-worth, finding solutions to relational challenges, and working with those who identify as LGBTQIA+.
