Who I am as a Therapist


Participating in therapy is vulnerable, courageous, and at times, demanding. But you are not on this journey alone. As your therapist, I will stand alongside you as a witness to your lived experiences, and will collaborate with you in developing new ideas for how you want your life story to unfold into the future. I believe that life is defined by constant change, and that the work of therapy is a nonlinear process of rediscovering, understanding, and grappling with one’s own and others’ imperfect humanity.

I practice from a collaborative stance that values your language, knowledge, intuition and experience. Utilizing perspectives from narrative, experiential, emotion-focused, somatic, and mindfulness-based therapies, I will strive to help you craft an experience of life that is empowering, affirming, and grounding. Based on my training in systemic therapies, I think about individuals (you!) as part of relational networks and am excited to work with individuals, couples, families and groups.

As a human who holds many privileged identities, I recognize that my experience of navigating the world may be quite different from yours. Given this, I will approach our work together both with humility toward your experience and knowledge, and with an aspiration toward deconstructing the stories, roles, and systems that do not serve you. I strive to create a welcoming, affirming environment for people from a diverse range of identities, including people from the BIPOC, queer, non-monogamous, disabled, and other non-dominant communities.

“The crafting of character is not a matter of perfecting the self, but rather of perfecting the self’s ability to revere its less than perfect incarnations.”Mari Ruti

Who I am when I’m not a Therapist


Outside of the office, you’ll find me enjoying Oregon’s many seasonal offerings: in spring and summer I am busily planting and harvesting vegetables in my garden and tending to my xeriscaped yard; in fall I take long walks to enjoy the last scraps of color and sunshine; in winter I head to the mountains for cross-country skiing. Throughout, I enjoy rock climbing, cooking homemade meals from our amazing local produce, and snuggling with my cat Bibi.
