I incorporate a variety of approaches in my work, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Positive Psychology, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy (SFT) and Yoga Therapy.
Believe it or not, I knew I wanted to be a therapist when I was 11 years old! Doing this work is my passion and calling in life. This drives my therapy approach which blends a combination of evidence-based treatments and relational work. My clients most often tell me that therapy with me feels respectful, supportive, and emotionally safe, even when I challenge them to break old mental habits and unhealthy patterns. They like that they can relate to me not only as an individual, but also as a coach (those CBT skills I teach!) and cheerleader (my positive psychology background).
I love sharing new skills and resources with my clients (hence those books I’ve written). Feel free to check out my Resources section for free handouts that I use regularly with my clients. Therapy with me also often includes a laugh or two as I do wholeheartedly believe that laughter is one of the most potent medicines of all!
Services are offered online to clients in Oregon, California, Arizona and any PSYPACT state (see participating states).
