My Approach to Helping
"When life gives you hope embrace it and heal old wounds, laugh at new discoveries and make new memories"
WHO I AM
I am a master's degree level strength-based client-centered mental health professional. I am licensed in California, Washington State, and Oregon.
I love animals, people, sweet smells, and the sound of rain.
I have over 19 years of experience working with individuals, couples, and families. I have worked in outpatient and inpatient mental health clinics, inpatient hospitals, helping Individuals and families learn to cope and manage chronic illness, family illness, and trauma.
I've worked with individuals with a wide range of needs including life adjustment issues, career challenges, life stressors, LGBT community, emotional and physical abuse, divorce and women experiences, trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, relationship issues, couples therapy, and parenting challenges. I also specialize in working with the elderly, helping with coping with chronic medical illness, coping with a terminal illness, grief, and loss, navigating the medical system emotionally and practically, and exploring community resources.
My counseling style is inclusive, kind, and supportive. I believe in starting where you're at and supporting you where your needs are the greatest. I believe in building on your strengths and assisting you in ways that help you feel honored and heard.
My therapeutic style combines a strength-based, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, trauma-informed, harm reduction, psychodynamic, solution-focused counseling approach. I will incorporate our dialogue in your treatment plan to focus on your unique and specific needs.
