Every client walks into my office with my complete respect and attention. I work closely with clients to explore their issues and collaborate to resolve their conflicts and concerns.
I have provided counseling services in the area for more than 30 years, and have been licensed by the state of Oregon since 1991. Many of my clients have experienced abuse either as children or adults or have been the victims of other crimes. My practice focuses on helping adults and near-adults deal with past or recent traumas, as well as anxiety, depression, stress and major life changes.
I have specialized training in Solution Focused Therapy and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I blend these practices with others, as well as new research-based information about how our bodies and brains work together. I am also trained in Brainspotting, a technique based on brain research that helps some people process traumatic memories or emotional distress.
