NCC, MA, LPC-I

I am passionate about helping people to experience healing from the negative effects of trauma or other difficult life circumstances. It is an honor to be part of a person’s journey toward getting their life back. I seek to meet clients where they are from an integrative, client-centered approach. I primarily work from the Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy approach, which is an alternative to traditional talk therapy. EMDR Therapy can lessen or eliminate the emotional disturbance of past traumatic memories by promoting healing of the whole person. Many people who have tried talk therapy without success have found this type of therapy to offer the healing they were seeking. Additionally, I utilize Cognitive-Behavioral and Gestalt techniques based on what is important to each client's healing process. Some of my experience has included working with clients who have experienced various types of trauma, depression, anxiety, PTSD, borderline personality disorder, and adults with developmental disabilities. I received my master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Liberty University and hold a bachelor's in Compassion Ministry from Moody Bible Institute. I was trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy by Life Transformation Institute (EMDRIA-accredited). I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and LPC Intern in the state of Oregon. I am supervised by Gina Lisiecki, LPC.
