Philosophy and Approach: I believe that children, youth and families can reach a sense of
wellness and fulfillment in their lives. I employ an eclectic and integrated approach to
counseling depending on individual client and family needs, drawing from various theories,
methods, and life experiences including emotion-focused therapy, person-centered therapy,
mindfulness techniques, narrative therapy, family systems theory, existential therapy, depth
psychology, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and elements of dance and movement therapy as well
as somatic and body-oriented approaches. I believe our thoughts, feelings, sensations,
experiences, behaviors, beliefs and symptoms are all part of an integrated whole, and therefore
seek to support the whole person in a collaborative and relational manner.

Formal Education and Training: I hold a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology from
Lewis and Clark College: Graduate School of Counseling and Education. Major coursework
included: group, family and couples counseling; human growth and development with an
emphasis in child and adolescent adjustment; trauma and crisis intervention; diversity, social
justice and cultural awareness; and assessment and diagnosis of mental and emotional disorders.
I also completed one year of coursework in the Education Specialist degree program. I have
completed a 6-month facilitation-training program called The Heart of Facilitation, and several
advanced Effective Communication and Relationship Building Seminars. I am trained in several
forms of dance and movement.

As a Registered Intern of the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and
