I hold a masters degree in couples marriage and family counseling from Portland State University. The graduate program I attended is accredited by the Counsel on Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP).
I believe that the best therapy is a collaborative process where the client is driving the treatment direction. I approach clients as my authentic self and tailor my approach to meet the needs of the client.
My main treatment philosophies are narrative and systemic theories. I focus on the narratives or stories we hear about ourselves and tell about who we are and how they impact the way we view ourselves and the world. I also approach treatment from a systemic point of view which means that I believe that we are constantly impacted by the various systems in our lives (ie. Schools, families, couples, child welfare ect.). I assist the client in examining these systems and how they impact our daily functioning. Treatment can often include individual and family therapy.
