The current focus of my therapy practice is helping individuals and couples make meaningful and compassionate contact with what matters most in their hearts and minds. I help people build relationships they can cherish, find understanding and purpose in the pain of loss, trauma, or confusion. This is not always easy but deeply powerful and transformative work. If you are looking for support during challenging times or feeling angry, lost or broken, please consider contacting me for a free consultation to find out if therapy is right for you or someone you love.
There is more to life than solving problems. Life is less a problem to be solved and more an experience to be lived and savored. The same is true of therapy."

Compassionate & Professional
At the heart of cultivating compassion lies the transformative process of thinking, feeling and behaving differently. This process forms the basic premise of psychotherapy and can change our notions of ourselves, our understanding of others and our relationships
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.
