Practice Description: I am a Licensed Profesional Counselor and Licensed Art Therapist in Portland, Oregon. I provide art therapy and counseling, focusing on individual and family counseling for adolescents and adults.

I employ an eclectic therapeutic approach that includes but is not limited to: expressive art therapy (including art, play, and narrative therapies); grief, loss and trauma work; collaborative problem solving; and cognitive behavioral therapies. Each approach is a strength-based and culturally competent model.

I have training and experience in various evidence based practices, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), collaborative problem solving (CPS), and trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT).
