About me

I consider it a privilege to use psychotherapy combined with mindfulness to help people rediscover practices to accept their lives — including fear, loss, and change — in a holistic manner. Hailing from the Midwest and living both in and out of the country since, we chose to settle in the Portland, Oregon, area for graduate school in 1997. Practicing psychotherapy, school-based and hospital-community mental health since 1991, I have been a licensed clinical social worker since 2000 (Portland State University graduate). A love of bird-watching, hiking, meditation, and being in nature helps me stay centered and grounded.

About my practice

My post-grad training is influenced by my 20 years of meditation and interest in the overlay between interpersonal neurobiology and contemplative practices. I have training and specialize in the neurobiology of trauma, depression, and anxiety, and have worked with children, adults, adolescents, and older adult populations. My approach to practice is based in strength-based understanding of cognitive behavior therapy, mindfulness, and acceptance skills to help individuals awaken to their true nature and true potential. The mental and emotional changes that we cultivate through mindsight are transformational at the very physical level of the brain. By developing the ability to focus our attention on our internal world, we pick up a scalpel and re-sculpt our neural pathways, stimulating the growth of areas that are crucial to mental health. Developing the lens that enables us to see the mind more clearly stimulates the brain to grow important new connections. Understanding how psychotherapy is influenced by neuroscience supports the idea that developing the reflective skills of mindsight activates the very circuits that create resilience and well-being which underlie growth of empathy and compassion.

How I thrive

Balancing ease with effort is the mainstay of my meditation practice and of my life. Practicing what I preach allows me to hear what is fresh within me, what is wise — starting my day listening to the birds. Most weekends are spent in nature, and as I enter into the deep forests, I am reminded of what I hold most precious and dear to my heart. Getting my hands dirty through gardening and ceramics/pottery allows my creativity to flourish. I am a "foodie," and I read constantly about exciting ways to expand my repertoire. I enjoy traveling to explore birds in other regions and love to talk about adventures my patients have had that enrich their lives in meaningful ways.
