My mission is to witness your story and to serve as a collaborator in helping you explore who you are and what you want. I have a genuine curiosity for your life story, your experiences and your relationships. I believe that you are the expert of your own journey, and it is my responsibility to hold space for your pain and to elevate the parts of you that best serve your hopes and goals. I know that struggling with relationship or sexual issues can feel isolating and vulnerable. I am confident that, through our work together, you can feel more connected to your most authentic self and have more fulfilling relationships with others.
I believe in social justice, and I am passionate about incorporating an awareness of power and oppression into my work with clients. I strive to validate the parts of you that may have been silenced and to help you have more equitable relationships.
My drive for being a therapist has been fueled by my own experiences. I felt the impact of divorce when my parents separated, and I wondered if there was a way to help families like mine heal and find unity. Growing up in a conservative Southern community, I often felt the isolation of being different and wondered if other folks felt silenced or rejected because of their identity or experience. I hope to elevate the voices of those whose stories have been silenced. It is my hope that you will feel welcome and included in my practice, and that you will know your identities are celebrated.
My therapeutic approach is informed by Narrative and Existential Family Therapy frameworks. I view therapy as a process of meaning making and discovery. I will work with you to take the power from your problems so that you can feel empowered to move forward in a positive direction. I am also passionate about incorporating sex positivity into my work with clients. It is my goal to make space for you to explore your sexuality in an empowering way. I have had the privilege to attend Lewis and Clark College where I am working towards a Master’s in Marriage, Couple, & Family Therapy with a specialization in Sex Therapy.
When I am not doing the work I love, you can find me spending quality time with my loved ones, tasting all the delicious vegan food in Portland, and playing video games.
