I speak: English
My gender: Female
Where I practice
I was born and raised on a tiny island in Alaska and moved to Oregon to attend college and be near family. I have always been drawn to the helping professions and am amazed and intrigued by the human mind and behavior. I graduated from Portland State University in 2007 with a master’s degree in social work. My career began at a residential mental health treatment program, working with children and families. I have been a licensed social worker in the state of Oregon since 2009. My preferred pronouns are she/her/hers.
About my practice
My treatment approach is client-centered and strengths-based. This means that I believe in using strategies that work best for individual clients. I also believe that within each system there are strengths and barriers to learning new ways of handling problems. I believe that, through practice, we can gain new skills and implement them effectively in our lives. I have experience working with children and families as well as individuals who are struggling with issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, life adjustment issues, mood difficulties, anger, and attention issues.

How I thrive
My family is very important to me. I spend as much time as possible with my kids, siblings, friends, and parents. I also enjoy the outdoors and try to stay physically active. Some of my favorite activities are camping, fishing, walking, yoga, snowboarding, paddle boarding, traveling, and taking care of my home.
