    About Me

    It is important to me that when we meet together, you feel as though you are sharing space with another human being who has genuine care and understanding of your emotions and the things you may be facing. Therapy sessions are a place for you to slow down, tune in and to get in touch with your deepest strengths that are already present within you. I bring my professional training and experience, which helps create a dynamic environment during therapy sessions, and my hope is also that humanness and authenticity can foster the safest, most trusting space for you to explore the things that are important to you. I feel honored to play a role in someone’s healing journey and it is my goal to break down the hierarchy differential that can sometimes happen between therapist and client.

    I have lived my life with deep curiosity about the human experience in relationship to others, the world and to the self. My own personal-growth journey is very important to me, which helps prepare me as a therapist to encourage deep, lasting change for you. I feel humbled and grateful that I get to do this work and to witness the strength and healing of my clients. I am passionate about helping individuals who may be tripped up by underlying fear or shame that can interfere with forging their own life path. I am passionate about helping people learn to confidently believe in themselves and to live boldly. Some other things I am passionate about: anti-racism, intersectional feminism, LGBTQI rights, body and sex positivity, meditation, connection to nature, and radical autonomy.

    I have my Master’s in Education in Couples and Family Therapy from the University of Oregon and I have been a practicing therapist since 2009. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in the state of Oregon. Being an LMFT simply means that I look through the lens of the “system” (whether it be cultural/societal, familial, marital, etc.) of which people are in and I consider how these systems impact the difficulties someone may face. I see many individuals in my practice, as well as families and couples.

    “The wounds is the place where the light enters you.”


    “Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy–the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”

    Brené Brown

    “It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept and celebrate those differences.”

    “Your willingness to look at your darkness is what empowers you to change.”
