I believe that each of us has an innate capacity to grow and heal. Sometimes, through various life challenges and loss, we forget that healing and wholeness are always available to us.
It is a privilege and honor to provide a safe environment where you will be understood in all your thoughts, feelings and experiences.
I have been described as empathetic, warm, curious and insightful. My approach is gentle, yet also challenging. While I use various techniques and styles, my practice is informed by mindfulness-based principles and body-centered approaches.
I came to social work through my own journey of transformation and healing. I understand the courage and bravery it takes to show up and do this work. It is not always easy but it is always worth it.
I specialize in attachment issues, grief and loss, coping skills, self-esteem issues, depression and anxiety, relationship issues, chronic illness and end-of-life, personal growth and life transitions.
I hold a Masters in Social Work from Portland State University and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Oregon - License #L7449.
