About

 

The therapeutic relationship can be a unique experience which is created by establishing positive rapport and trust. This relational approach is the basis for the work that I do and I find that this can be achieved by creating a feedback process between each other to ensure genuine communication. I am an active participant in the therapy session to help promote healthy exploration and insight into negative patterns or recurring themes that are coming up in the process. Identifying the root of emotional distress can oftentimes be challenging yet building resiliency is doable as you will receive positive and consistent support in the process.

I hold a Masters Degree in Social Work that I attained at Portland State University and a Bachelors Degree in Sociology from the University of Colorado at Boulder. My clinical licenses are as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and a Certified Clinical Therapist with the Oregon Sex Offender Treatment Board specializing in treating adolescents with sexually inappropriate behavior and I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW). I specialize in treating teenagers, young adults, and adults with anxiety, depression, impulsivity, knowledgeable of issues facing LGTBQ and gender questioning folks, I have training and clinical experience in Interpersonal Neurobiology, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and I utilize Attachment and Family Systems Theories.
