As a counselor and family therapist, I listen deeply and carefully to individuals, couples, and families as they tell their stories. I work with the connections between people and how change or lack of change causes something to happen somewhere else in the system (systems theory).

I look for secure and insecure attachments between each person and their family members, partners, friends, and co-workers.

I help people who have experienced trauma and who need grief counseling and traumatic experience therapy. We work together to abandon old, harmful brain connections that are painful. We reprocess the old and forge new, functional, and life-affirming brain pathways so that you can keep your head up high for a more well-balanced life.

Where old, tired, and dysfunctional stories hold people back, I help them build new stories and repair broken attachments.

If you want to find a therapist in Oregon or Idaho who can help you through whatever you’re experiencing, I’d love to be there for you.
