I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a full-time practice in Bend, Oregon.  I am passionate about the body’s innate intelligence and resiliency, and our capacity to heal and thrive under the right conditions.  I work with those suffering from addiction, chronic pain/illness, trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship conflicts, grief/loss, and chronic stress. I utilize methods such as Somatic Experiencing®, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and mindfulness-based approaches to healing. I have my own meditation and movement practice, which greatly informs my process. My practice is open and inclusive to those from diverse racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds, and all sexual orientations and gender identities.
