Frequently asked questions
What kind of training do you have?
To add a new question go to app settings and press "Manage I received my BS in Psychology from Tulane University in 2012 and went on to get my MA in Professional Mental Health Counseling from Lewis and Clark College in 2017. I am trained as clinical counselor and did my graduate school internship working with Veterans at the Portland VA Medical Center’s PTSD specialty team.
What kind of clients do you like working with?
I work with folks in the LGBTQ+ community, sex workers, POC, empaths, Highly Sensitive People (HSPs), survivors of childhood trauma, folks struggling with dissociation, PTSD, and anxiety disorders. I really enjoy working with clients who are dedicated to their own healing process and want to stop the cycles/patterns of trauma passed down from their family lines. I enjoy bringing somatic and neurological-informed perspectives (nervous system regulation) to exploring the ways that traumatic events impact people as a whole. People who are open to learning more about themselves and the ways they relate to others are really fun to work with.
What kind of things do you do when you're not conducting therapy?
I enjoy spending time with people I care about, laughing a lot, taking my puppy to the park, jigsaw puzzles, swimming, luxurious baths, practicing ways to soothe my nervous system, reading, seeing films, and spending time in wild spaces.
What made you decide to become a therapist?
Becoming a mental health counselor felt more like a sense of knowingness than a decision for me. I knew that I wanted to be a healer and space holder for others’ pain, struggles, and growth since I knew that this was something I was personally invested in as a lifelong commitment to my own healing.
