I earned my doctorate degree at George Fox University and am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in the State of Oregon. I have been afforded the opportunity to work in a variety of outpatient settings with different populations but have maintained a focus in children, adolescents, and family therapy. I also have experience working in the schools and am able to collaborate with school staff to help students find success in the academic realm. My overall goal is to develop a safe, respectful therapeutic relationship and my approach to therapy is collaborative. Each client is different and I have seen success in both short term and long term therapy. I generally begin with helping a client to meet their immediate goals and then, having strengthened their skills, use that momentum to assist in making the larger, systemic changes that will allow for long lasting results.
