I am a Marriage Couple Family Therapist student intern in Portland, OR who specializes in working with families, especially with children & parenting, LGBTQ+ folks, and individuals of any age.
I am of the mindset that equity and trust are essential to working together to find solutions and gain awareness. While I am informed on a wide range of therapeutic approaches and I use what is best for each individual client, I tend to lean towards using Solution-Focused Therapy, Structural Therapy, and Narrative Therapy styles. I like for our work together to be interactive and empowering with the understanding that there are systems we may have to work with, in, or around.
Therapy is a journey forward. It helps you reconnect with yourself, your family and your life by moving past barriers. You are the expert on your life. I am here to ask questions and give ideas that help guide you to see the answers you already have yet are unable to see.
In my free time you can find me interacting with water in any way I can - be it a river, the ocean or a pool. I also enjoy playing lawn games and having a picnic in the wonderful Portland parks or taking advantage of all the wonderful restaurants in our corner of the Pacific Northwest.
