Living life on life’s terms can be challenging. Whether we are struggling because of past traumas or current stressors, we all have seasons where we get off path and it becomes difficult to gain perspective, remember what we really want out of life, and find the insights we need to change or meet our goals. I am here to walk alongside you, helping you navigate life’s challenging seasons, discover your inner strength and wisdom, and ultimately empower you to pursue a life that aligns with your values, dreams, and goals. My work has highlighted the impact of social and environmental systems on individuals’ mental health, as well as the factors that build resilience. For this reason, I am passionate about providing resources for marginalized populations, and offering a space for safety and connection, respect, open expression, autonomy, and authenticity. I work with teens, young adults, and older adults from all walks of life, but have a particular passion for working with women and girls, people with complex trauma, those struggling to build and maintain healthy relationships, and those struggling with or recovering from addiction.


My theoretical orientation to therapy is strengths based, trauma-informed, culturally humble, and person-centered, rooted in attachment and feminist theories. I work within an empowerment model, utilizing relational, collaborative, and wholistic approaches to create a deeper understanding of each individual through their unique worldview, culture, and personal set of identity-shaping experiences. Throughout treatment I will support clients in finding their voice and implementing attainable solutions to address their needs. I will do this through promoting balance, increasing mind-body awareness in safe and productive ways, and cultivating increased self-understanding and self-acceptance. I draw from an eclectic mix of modalities aimed to meet each individual’s needs, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Somatic based approaches, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Sand Tray, and Narrative Therapy. I utilize these along with art, expressive, and experiential therapies, personal creativity, and a bit of humor, to support individuals throughout the therapeutic process.


I earned my Masters of Social Work (MSW)from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science and GIS from the University of Redlands. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Oregon and am trained to practice EMDR through EMDRIA. My experience working in the mental health field has supported a variety of populations including survivors of intimate partner violence, people struggling with addiction, Veterans, commercially sexually exploited(CSEC) youth, personality disorders, teens in residential treatment struggling with trauma, depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders, and families working toward reunification.

In my free time I enjoy hiking with my partner and dogs, working with both wild mustangs and domesticated horses, and playing in my vegetable and flower garden.
