About Me

I was born and raised in Oregon, but I have lived in different regions of the US and abroad. I have worked with a variety of people experiencing challenges with depression, anxiety, past trauma, grief, relationships, and other life transitions in a variety of settings. Over the years, I’ve provided consultation to hospitals, mental health centers, universities, and government agencies, and today I’m committed to bringing compassion, and a sense of curiosity and openness about who you are as a client and what you need. My goal is to design a plan for growth that honors your beliefs and strengths.
