More Info About My Practice

I have a master's degree in Couples, Marriage and Family Therapy and a master's level certification in Addictions Counseling from Portland State University. I am both a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor in Oregon and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington. For the last 18 years I have been working with teens to seniors who experience co-occurring mental health and addiction challenges. I am a voting board member of the Clatsop County Human Services Advisory Counsel which seeks to improve the availability of addiction and mental health services in our rural settings. I reside with my partner in Astoria along with our two rescue dogs Spike and Dewey.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

It seems that life experiences can swell up when we least expect it. Transitions often happen suddenly and without warning. I believe that we all can benefit from a conversation with an attentive, nonjudgmental professional from time to time. My clients tell me that the they find great comfort in being able to share their innermost concerns with a caring, trained counselor. Half the challenge is giving a voice to our thoughts and resolution often follows as the next step.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

1. Choose someone that has office hours that meet your schedule.
2. Offers affordable rates.
3. Has the training, credentials and experience to address your concerns.
4. Is willing to refer you to someone more appropriate if necessary.
5. Is licensed without sanctions.
6. Clear and concise in their treatment approach.
