I work with clients from a systemic perspective, tailoring my approach to the specific concerns of my clients. I will often use principles from Emotion-Focused Therapy and Intergenerational Family Therapy in my work with individuals, couples and relationship groups. I primarily specialize in working with couples addressing issues of low desire or desire discrepancy concerns. I also enjoy premarital counseling and working with clients looking to explore or renegotiate open relationship contracts.
I hold a Master's Degree in Couple & Family Therapy, with a specialization in Sex Therapy, from Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA. I am a registered, licensed marriage and family therapist intern with the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists (OBLPCT) and I am on the board of the Oregon Counseling Association (ORCA) as the Membership Committee Chair. I am currently supervised by Steve Berman, LCSW (OR License #: 1021) and Karlaina Brooke, PsyD (OR License #: 1623).
In my spare time, I enjoy writing, practicing yoga and exploring the weird and wonderful land of Portland!
