My therapy philosophy is based on the importance of treating individuals with dignity and respect. I believe that people are dynamic, and capable of change & restoration; consequently, I have a deep respect for their resilience and strength. My approach to treatment is to identify, utilize, and enhance the client's unique strengths to empower them to heal and reach their goals. A trusting relationship between the therapist and the client is fundamental to the process of therapy. Therefore, I strive to create a confidential, safe, and non-judgmental space for clients to own and process their experiences.
I work with clients who present with a breadth of issues (i.e. Trauma, Depression, anxiety, addiction, relationship problems, and co-occuring disorders). Additionally, I am an EMDR Trained Therapist and integrate holistic and evidence-based modalities in my treatment.
I am an LGBTQIA+ Affirmative Therapist, and have experience working with multi-culturally diverse populations. I can offer a sliding scale fee for clients who are going through financial hardships. I currently have offices in Portland and Ada.
