My practice is devoted to working with clients of all ages and lifestyles in order to help them deal effectively with difficulties that have had an impact upon their relationships and their personal lives.

I have been providing individual, couple, and group therapy for adults, children, and adolescents for ten years in a wide variety of clinical settings, including residential placement, local community schools, and in private practice.

I have had extensive training working with the most severely emotionally disturbed adolescents, at-risk youth, and their families; helping them to cope with multiple and complex traumatic issues.

I particularly enjoy working with adolescents and teenagers to help guide them as they make important choices about lifestyle, values, education, and relationships.

I’m also interested in assisting people who feel creatively blocked and are unable to move forward on their projects and dreams.

Additionally, I use Dreamtending and Sandplay in my therapeutic work if clients express an interest in exploring these approaches.

I see therapy as one of the few rituals we still use to acknowledge, to grieve, and to celebrate significant rites of passage.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (#T0657) with the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists and I have been licensed with the Board of Behavioral Sciences (#MFC44297) in California since 2007. I have had over 3000 hours of supervised training in agencies in California and Oregon.
