I am currently taking new clients. Due to the current COVID -19 outbreak, I am offering Telehealth (video sessions that are HIPAA secure) to ensure your safety and well-being. 

25 years of diverse experience enables me to provide effective, empathic and evidence-based therapy. I offer therapy and consultation for many issues and challenges including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, trauma, abuse, life transitions and adoption to name a few. I provide a nurturing environment for adults, teens, children (all ages) and families to explore growth and healing. I am also pleased to provide parenting consultation and coaching. My focus is to help individuals and families heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths, bringing more joy, balance, connection and peace. I use a variety of trauma informed, evidence-based modalities and practices in my work:

  • Rythmn of  Regulation /  Polyvagal – Informed Therapy
  • Collaborative Problem Solving (Tier II Certified)
  • Neuro-Sequential Model of Therapeutics
  • Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
  • Self Psychology
  • Sand Tray Therapy
  • Somatic Experiencing
  • Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

I graduated with a  Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from Wilfred Laurier University (Canada) in 1995 and have been  a Licensed Clinical Social Work in Oregon since 1998. I complete a minimum of 40 hours of continuing education bi-annually and have participated in numerous and on-going trainings by Dr. Bruce Perry M.D. (Child Trauma Academy)  Dr. Stuart Ablon Ph.D (Think:Kids/Collaborative Problem Solving), Dr Gabor Maté M.D., and Peter Levine M.D. I have extensive experience teaching Mindfulness-Based Stress and Symptom Reduction. I am also a certified YogaCalm instructor and Reiki Practitioner.

I do not bill insurance, however I am happy to provide the necessary Superbill for you to submit to your insurance for reimbursement. I can process payments from your HSA and/or use a combination of your out-of-network deductible and your HSA. 

Please feel welcome to call me for a free 20 minute discovery call to see if we would work well together. Please explore my website to learn more about how I can work with you.
