So often, we find ourselves out of balance in one way or another. As a counselor, I aim to meet you wherever you are. The life story you bring to counseling is yours and yours alone. You may bring with you a difficult life transition, grief and loss, struggles with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, unresolved pain, or a multitude of other life challenges. 


I strive to create a space where you experience compassion, acceptance, and understanding through connection in our time spent together.

My overall approach to counseling values the self as a whole, paying attention to the way that thoughts, feelings, the physical body, and our beliefs and values work together to shape how we see ourselves and interact with the world around us. I hold together the interaction of hope, the power of choice, the need for self-compassion, and the reality of life factors not in our control.

I welcome you to explore this site to discover more about me and my mental health counseling practice.

My practice is conveniently located between I-205 and 99E in the Breakthrough Counseling office in Gladstone.

I'm just a short drive from Oregon City, Happy Valley, Milwaukie, Clackamas, and accessible to much of the North Willamette Valley and the greater Portland area.
