I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a full-time private practice in Portland, Oregon.  I am passionate about the body’s organic intelligence and resiliency, and our capacity to heal and thrive under the right conditions.  I work with those suffering from addiction, chronic pain, 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. I welcome adults of all sexual orientations, gender identities, ethnic, religious, immigrant, and socio-economic backgrounds.
