About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor, a licensed mental health counselor, a nationally certified counselor, and a nationally certified clinical hypnotherapist specializing in individual and couples therapy.  

I have 29 years of experience addressing marital issues, trauma, chronic illness, anxiety, depression and grief. In addition to being a psychotherapist and hypnotherapist, I also provide a space for groups - drumming circles - a healing approach through sound and self-expression.

I am providing services in both Oregon and Washington. 

I have taught at several community colleges, provided clinical supervision, presented at conferences, and conducted local and national workshops speaking on a variety of topics including anxiety and depression, trauma, ethics and professional conduct, suicide risk and prevention, Deaf culture, burn-out and fatigue, as well as, understanding the chakra system and energy balancing.

I am an interactive therapist that provides practical feedback to help clients build on their current strengths and engage in life's journey from a positive viewpoint.
