Where I practice
I grew up in Illinois and moved to Oregon in 1985 for graduate school at the University of Oregon. After completing a PhD in sociology and postdoctoral work in gender and mental health, I taught at the college level and eventually pursued graduate training and licensure in mental health. I am a licensed counselor in both Oregon and Washington. In addition, I have pursued extensive continuing education in mindfulness-based treatments.
About my practice
I have practiced as a therapist since 1998 and have worked at Kaiser Permanente since 2003. I enjoy my work tremendously, and try to merge theory and knowledge with practical, action-based strategies that help people truly improve their lives. While many people come to us in emotional pain and with a range of concerns to be addressed, I believe an essential part of our practice is also to help people learn to be more present and joyful in their lives every day. I strongly believe and know that therapy is an art as well as a science and that the most important component of effective therapy is very genuine, unconditional acceptance of and regard for the people we serve.

How I thrive
I thrive by spending time outdoors and especially love the beaches and trails along the ocean and our rivers and lakes. No matter what is going on in my life, I find an hour by the water deeply soothing. I treasure any time in nature. I also enjoy a wide variety of music, dancing, and films as well as reading, meditating, and snuggling with our dog by the fireplace. Simple pleasures are truly the most enjoyable and renewing activities for me.
