Focus Area: Clinical Social Work

Licensed in: Oregon

Change is always possible when you have the right tools and support. In general, I am eclectic in my approach. The work I do is very much influenced by your individual needs and what you are seeking to get out of our work together. The coaching and therapy experience is different for each person, and I really enjoy arriving in session and seeing where the path leads. I am here to honor and celebrate your individual story so your resilience and strength can be fostered and nurtured.
