Child Therapists Portland - About Me


I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Oregon, and a professional member of the Association for Play Therapy. I received my Master's degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from Boulder, Colorado's Naropa University, and have been trained in both Synergetic Play Therapy, and Gestalt Psychotherapy. Also integrated into my practice is Nonviolent Communication (NVC),eastern philosophy, and mindfulness. I believe wholeheartedly in the effectiveness of holistic, experiential approaches to healing and my work is informed by the belief that every individual, young and old, is attempting to move toward a state of greater wholeness. It is my job to assist my clients in this endeavor while honoring them in their entirety. I have over seven years of experience working with children in a variety of capacities and look forward to working with your child.


Originally from California, I moved to Portland in 2009 with my husband Tony. I am the mother of one, and am passionate about ''those little moments'' that make parenting so much fun. I get excited about farmer's markets, creating community, spending time outdoors, and personal growth. As a child, my favorite place on the planet was Catalina Island, CA and my favorite game was ''mermaids.''
