My practice serves humans in the Portland area. As a counselor and spiritual coach I work with individuals and couples who are ready to create the life they want.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the State of Oregon. I earned my Master's Degree from Western Seminary's Counseling Program. My undergraduate work was focused on theology, developmental education, and communication. I have continued studies in the areas of nutritional therapy, Hakomi and Process Work. I love reading mystic teachings from various religious traditions and I engage in ongoing yoga and meditation practices.
My work as a therapist is informed by my belief that people already have everything they need to grow; that we have innate and rooted wisdom and that often our biggest obstacle is learning how to quiet down and listen. I practice from a mindful-somatic perspective, while focusing on attachment work; together we will tap into the curiosity and compassion that you already possess. While we definitely want to work on healing wounded spaces in you, we also want to make specific plans for moving forward; setting and tracking realistic goals is a common practice in my therapy sessions.
Currently, I take OHP Open Card, Kaiser Added Choice, PacificSource, First Choice Health Network, Legacy Health, and can see you out of network if your plans allows.
