I truly love what I do!  I have been in private practice in Portland since 2012.  I am honored to have the opportunity to share what I’ve learned with the people I meet in my office.  Being invited to support my clients on their journey to a more happy and complete sense of self is the most rewarding work I have ever done.  

In addition to supporting clients through my private practice, I have the pleasure and privilege of guiding the next generation therapists into the field as a clinical supervisor at Lewis & Clark Community Counseling Center. I'm an Approved Supervisor through the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy.

My work in the mental health field began at one of the largest LGBT organizations in the world, the LA Gay & Lesbian Center.  Chosen as one of only ten new interns to their nationally acclaimed LGBT specific psychotherapy internship program, I received excellent training in a range of LGBT mental health issues including intimate partner violence, substance abuse, and crisis intervention. 

I've received training in theories of psychology and counseling, human growth and development, law and ethics, couples counseling, family systems, treatment of children and adolescents, chemical dependency, human sexuality, human diversity, and affirmative treatment models for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender clients. I earned a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in LGBT Clinical Psychology from Antioch University Los Angeles.  I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Deaf Studies from California State University Northridge and an Associate’s degree in Liberal Arts from the Community College of Vermont.

I've had the opportunity to live in many areas of the country including New Jersey, Georgia, Utah, and Oregon. These experiences have enriched my understanding of American culture, religion, and  historical oppressions which greatly influences my work. I'm happily settled in Oregon but at times I do miss a good Georgia thunderstorm. When I'm not working I'm most often volunteering, enjoying roller derby, or creating something with my hands.
