As a therapist, my goal is to provide an authentic, safe space for people to process their experiences, define their goals and values, develop life changing skills, cultivate healthy connection with their emotions and body, and move toward building the life that they want to be living. I use holistic, evidence based methods and tailer them to where you are in your pursuit of wellbeing. In my practice, I first and foremost value my relationship with the person in front of me, as that is the biggest predictor of success in therapy. I also prioritize therapeutic approaches with strong evidence of effectiveness for the issues I treat, including (but not limited to) Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP), and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). My approach is active and compassionate; I believe that, while deep insight and healing take time, you shouldn't have to spend years in therapy to feel the change in your life that you need. I maintain that you are the authority on your own life and experience and will meet you where you are without judgment. Background: I have been working as a mental health professional since 2013, serving people in a wide range of community based and residential mental health settings, working with both adults and adolescents. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign with a double major in psychology and philosophy, and my masters degree from the University of Hawaii at Manoa in Social Work with a focus on mental and behavioral health. Currently, in addition to running my own therapy practice, I also work as a medical social worker at Oregon Health and Science University Hospital where I am able to support people who are in crisis or grieving, and teach as an adjunct professor at Portland State University.  I first took an interest in clinical psychology at a fairly young age. I grew up in a household with struggles of substance abuse, trauma, mental illness, and poor coping. As I struggled to find my own peace, I turned to philosophy and examining my own mind and suffering. I pursued a career in mental health because of my strong belief that one of the most powerful things a person can do to radically better their life is to engage in self-reflection. I can sincerely say that I am passionate about and feel thoroughly privileged to be able to support people both through isolated moments of need and in long term pursuit of change.    When I'm not working with people or teaching, I love to recharge getting out in nature with a long mountain climb, or get into my body by studying martial arts. I also try (and often struggle) to maintain a balanced existence by practicing mindful meditation, dance, reading, and spending quality time with people I care about.  Fees and Insurance: Intake Assessment: $200 55 Minute Psychotherapy Session: $165 Right now, I am only in network with Moda Insurance.
