Are you feeling hopeless due to troubled relationships, complicated grief, depression, unchecked anxiety or chronic stress? As a registered Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), I am privileged to work with couples and individuals on increasing their mental health and building and repairing relationships.
No matter what your past hurt or trauma may be, such as abuse, betrayal, or infidelity issues, it is my passion to walk with each of my clients to help them find strengths in their uniqueness as individuals and as a couple. My work is to empower you to takes steps in healing and experience vitality in your life and in your relationships.
I began in this field as a college counselor to students at Multnomah University in Oregon. I also worked at an agency for two years as an in-home therapist for families with adopted and foster children. I have been at Align Counseling since June of 2019 as an individual and couple’s therapist.
I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, as well as being trained in The Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy (PACT-Level I), and Gottman Method for Couples. Some of the psychotherapy modalities I practice are trauma informed therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), strengths based and Solution Focused Therapy. I believe in building a therapeutic relationship with those with whom I work by providing a safe, nonjudgmental, and empowering environment to all my clients.
On a personal note, my husband and I have been married for over 27 years, and we have experienced all the ups and downs and many challenges marriage has to offer. We have two adult children and a mini–Australian Shepard (she helps us to keep moving)!
We enjoy hiking, skiing, and snowboarding with family and friends. We are always on the lookout for new hiking trails. I basically love nature and try to stay active all year long. I personally take time for self-care by curling up with a good book, a soft blanket, and a good cup of coffee!
