Welcome to my website and thanks for visiting. On this website, you will find information about me, the kind of services I provide and something of the way I work here. Please call me if you have questions or would like to schedule an initial appointment. I offer free 15 minute phone consultations to facilitate the process of finding a therapist that fits your needs and interests.
"The highest and most beautiful things in life are not to be heard about, nor read about, nor seen but, if one will, are to be lived."
I am a therapist with over a decade of training and experience providing mental health services to people seeking to improve the quality of their lives. Trained as a clinical social worker in Chicago at Loyola University, I found my calling as a therapist. Clinical social work allowed me to blend my personal life experience with my deep curiosity about people and my desire to make the world a slightly better place.
Since receiving my degree in 2006, I have worked in several community mental health centers in California, Oregon and Washington. I worked for the University of California San Francisco and the Department of Veterans Affairs in Portland and Vancouver. Virtually all of my work in these settings was based on solid research, excellent training and good outcomes. The last couple of years, I have focused on building a private practice in Vancouver. I am licensed in Washington (#LW60750679) and Oregon (#L4756), and received the QCSW Certification by the National Association of Social Workers in 2017.
