I have been licensed in Oregon since 1999, and have worked extensively with culturally diverse children, adolescents, adults, and their families for the past 25 years, conducting individual, group, couples, and family psychotherapy.   I blend various methods of psychotherapy (humanistic/existential, cognitive-behavioral, systems, psychodynamic, and others) and mind-body approaches in a compassionate, safe, and respectful environment.  By examining how past experiences shape current functioning, we can begin to explore new options. I help people to develop greater self-awareness, free themselves from limiting patterns, find comfort through self-acceptance, and discover the path to greater authenticity and fulfillment.
