Behavioral Health

I received my Master’s Degree in Art Therapy and Counseling from Marylhurst University in Oregon in 2005. Since then, my focus has been on individual and family therapy (interpersonal, domestic, and parenting issues), grief and trauma work, and chemical dependency problems. I believe that all people have the ability to heal, adapt, thrive, and live a meaningful life. As a therapist, I see my role as a collaborative facilitator of change. I seek to join with clients in a respectful way that acknowledges their own wisdom through practical, supportive, and emphatic connection. I recognize the unique challenges of each individual and system, and seek to integrate emotions, thoughts, and actions to enable fuller, happier lives. My therapeutic approach includes humanistic, cognitive behavioral, and art therapy approaches. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, being out in nature, hiking, camping, and skiing.
