Sometimes life gets a little tougher than usual. My goal is to help you through those rough patches, whether they be big or small, while being caring and non-judgemental. Asking for help can be frightening, but it's often the first step toward a healthier, more balanced life. We will work together to establish goals for counseling and approach the counseling process at your pace. I want to help you achieve peace and feel more satisfied in your life's direction.
I hold a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology and am currently pursuing my PhD in Counseling Education. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Oregon. I offer therapy services with an aim at helping people overcome life's challenges. I also help individuals with specific treatment issues, including substance abuse, depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, trauma and other mental health diagnoses.
I am a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor Level III in the state of Oregon which means I have at least 300 educational hours in addiction, 6,000 supervised experience hours in the addiction counseling competencies, and have taken the national certification exam and national oral case presentation exam. A CADC III is the highest level an addiction counselor can be in Oregon.
Psychotherapy can greatly improve your mental well-being. Opening up your soul to a stranger requires a great deal of trust. My practice provides a comfortable and private setting for you to share your feelings.
