I am a Licensed Counselor specializing in individual, couple, and family therapy. I completed my Master’s Degree in Marriage & Family Therapy at George Fox University, and earned my license (LPC #C2453) to practice in Oregon. I am also a Certified Alcohol & Drug Counselor (CADC-I).
I believe that hope is one of the most important aspects of change – without it, we feel hopeless and unable to make the adjustments we need to! I will strive to help you find hope in your situations to better help you achieve the goals you desire from counseling.
I am passionate about helping people improve their lives and feel better about themselves. I am also passionate about relationships – marriages, significant others, family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, you name it. Relationships are where we turn to when we’ve had a bad day or when we achieve something great. They are where we know and become known, and what makes life so dynamic and fun… when they are healthy!
On a personal level, I am married and have two boys. In my spare time I enjoy reading, listening to music, computers/web design, playing sports, and spending time with my family. I grew up in Seattle, Washington and moved to Oregon in 2003.

Possibility Therapy, Contextual, Strengths-Based These approaches explore client strengths and successes, as well as possibilities for change. They focus on concrete behaviors that can be done to help achieve the client’s desired outcome. They also examine situations and beliefs from different perspectives which can often become keys to helping clients become “unstuck” in their issues. Because these approaches focus on possibilities, clients often feel a sense of confidence and hope after just a single session.
