Who I am as a Therapist


Hi, I’m Brooke! I warmly welcome you to this space and want to honor what courage it has taken to be here.

As a relational therapist, I believe transformative change and growth happen when we approach our experiences with curiosity and compassion. At the core of this belief is my deep appreciation for the invaluable role that connection, belonging, and community play in the shaping of our life stories. My hope is to create a space where you feel safe, understood, and empowered in your unique journey – to walk alongside you in your human experience.

My passion lies in providing anti-oppressive and affirmative care, particularly for BIPOC, LGBTQIA+ folx, and those experiencing neurodivergence and disabilities. As your advocate, this involves creating an inclusive space that centers on cultural humility, self-reflection, and an awareness of how my own identities show up in the room. I am here to honor your journey as we work collaboratively to explore your lived experiences and uncover paths toward collective healing and growth.

In our therapeutic space together, I will bring my genuine self, and I invite you to do the same. My role is to serve as a compassionate mirror, helping you gain clarity on your emotional landscape and exploring your inner world and relationships with more confidence and ease. My therapeutic approach is rooted in self-acceptance and compassion, drawing from Emotionally Focused, Experiential, and Existential-Humanistic therapies. I also integrate mindfulness and embodied practices to help deepen self-awareness and connection with oneself and the world.

Who I am when I’m not a Therapist


Outside of my role as a therapist, I find joy in being in nature, having morning coffee in my garden, and being in the company of my closest friends. Originally from North Carolina, I have a deep love of being on warm, sun-drenched beaches by the ocean. Since relocating to Portland, I’ve rediscovered my love for lush green forests, crafting candles, and dyeing with flowers!
