Psychotherapy with Adults

Pronouns: They, Them, Theirs

I am a psychology resident at Portland Mental Health & Wellness working under the supervision of Len Kaufman, PhD. I received my doctorate in clinical psychology from Pacific University in August 2021.

I am a social-justice-focused, kink-positive, polyamory-positive, queer, and transgender therapist. I especially enjoy working with individuals from diverse communities, backgrounds, and identities. My approach to therapy is humanistic and integrative and I believe the most important element is the therapeutic relationship.

Therapy is a collaborative and dynamic process. My aim is to co-create an environment with you that is ideal for growth and healing to occur. I focus heavily on the “here and now” experience in my approach. My work is exploratory and creative. Together we will become curious about each experience and how you can creatively express yourself.

I aim to collaborate with my patients to discover their most authentic self. I work with individuals on a number of concerns, including overcoming the impact of trauma, improving interpersonal relationships, discovering reasons to live, increasing life satisfaction, reducing distress, and identity development. I also work with individuals experiencing psychosis and/or dissociation. My approach combines elements of Gestalt, mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS).
