Individual Psychotherapy with Adults
Pronouns: She, Her, Hers
I am a licensed psychologist at Portland Mental Health & Wellness. I received my doctorate in clinical psychology from the Wright Institute in Berkeley, California and completed my predoctoral internship at University of Michigan’s Counseling & Psychological Services. I work with adults of all ages with a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, trauma, eating issues, relationship difficulties, grief, and gender/sexual identity issues.
My style is warm, collaborative, and strength-based. I use an integrationist approach to therapy, drawing primarily from psychodynamic and interpersonal theoretical frameworks and incorporating strategies derived from mindfulness- and acceptance-based approaches. I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship is the foundation for healing and growth, thus I strive to create an empathically attuned environment that facilitates enhanced self-understanding, emotional awareness and acceptance, and creative problem-solving to help you move forward. Working within a feminist-multicultural framework, I am attentive to the multiple identities and social contexts that shape each individual’s experience and am committed to providing culturally responsive care.
