As a cognitive, dialectical behavioral therapist, a Gottman Level One trained counselor and a Certified Daring Way ™ Facilitator (Brene' Brown) in South East Portland, Oregon my treatment approach is to provide support with insight and feedback to help clients address current challenges and long-standing issues. With sensitivity and compassion, I help individuals bring resolution to a wide range of life challenges and psychological issues.
I specialize in maternal mental health challenges (miscarriage, infant loss, new parenting, difficult births), grief and loss, trauma, shame resilience, assertiveness training and addictions (both substances and behaviors).
With an integration of complimentary methods, I draw from a selection of styles and techniques such as to incorporate what is most helpful for each individual. Together with each client I work to build on strengths and achieve life goals.
