I earned my doctorate at George Fox University in 2007 and have been a Licensed Psychologist in the State of Oregon since 2008. I also earned a Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fuller Theological Seminary in 2001. I have worked in a variety of outpatient and residential facilities but have maintained a focus in children/adolescent, couples and family therapy. My approach is practical and solution focused. I begin by helping each client tackle their immediate challenges, developing their strengths and helping to make the needed internal and environmental changes necessary for long lasting results and healing. In addition to working in private practice, I am the clinic director for the George Fox Behavioral Health Clinic in Newberg and I am an assistant professor in their PsyD Program.
