Specific areas of clinical focus include:

  • relationships
  • trauma
  • depression
  • anxiety and transitions.

My greatest passion is working with couples and individuals who are looking for tools to navigate relationship difficulties, traumas, and major life transitions.

I love helping couples improve communication, rekindle intimacy and improve awareness of patterns which may result in defensiveness, or feeling “not heard” by your partner. Together we develop goals & strategies for cultivating positive changes.

Modalities I use in my practice are: Gottman Method Couple Therapy, EMDR, IFS, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Attachment theory, Mindfulness, Trauma Focus-CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focus Therapy, etc.

I approach therapy with warmth, and acceptance. My mode of treatment is designed to get you back to living the life you want. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process where I help my clients feel safe, understood, and empowered to explore new ways of being in the world. I will work with you to create positive changes in your life.

In my free time, I find solace and joy in the simple yet profound experiences of nature. Nature, to me, is not just a backdrop but a vital source of well-being and mental resilience. Whether it’s a leisurely stroll through the woods or an invigorating dip in cold water, I’ve discovered the transformative power of connecting with the natural world.

Cold exposure has become a cornerstone of my self-care routine. There’s something uniquely refreshing about immersing myself in cold water-it’s not just a physical experience but a way to rejuvenate my mind and spirit. I’m excited to share that my love for cold dipping led to an incredible opportunity to be featured on an episode of Oregon Field Guide. It’s an honor to contribute to a narrative about embracing discomfort, finding resilience, and fostering connection.

During my therapeutic practice, I draw upon my personal experiences to guide clients in understanding the importance of spending time in nature. We explore overcoming discomfort as a pathway to building resilience. My goal is to create a space where individuals can discover their own sources of strength and connection.
