Areas of Expertise

As my passion is relationships, much of my training and experience is in working with couples.  I have completed training with the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT), and have completed 3 out of 4 steps needed to become a Certified EFT Therapist, and am pursuing the certification. In addition, I am experienced and enjoy working with couples and individuals of a variety of backgrounds and experiences. I have experience working with couples with a variety of challenges including: previous affairs and/or large secrets, loud and/or frequent fighting, small children, and histories of traumatic experiences. I also have experience working with LGBTQ individuals and couples, as well as polyamorous individuals and couples.

Some additional areas of expertise include: anxiety, depression, trauma, sex, personal growth, and self-esteem. I have done additional training with the Gottman Institute, and the National Suicide Prevention Hotline. 

I do not currently work with people under the age of 18.


I am a member of the Oregon Counseling Association, the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy, and the Portland Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy.
