About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 20 years of experience serving clients in the state of Oregon. I am honored to work with children ages 10+, adults, couples and families utilizing a host of therapy modalities including EMDR, short term, solution focused therapy, CBT, collaborative problem solving and motivational interviewing.

Education & Experience

Master's Degree in Social Work from University of Arkansas at Little Rock, 1992. I have worked in both in-patient and outpatient settings, medical/mental health clinics and private practice. My greatest joy is walking clients through both current and past traumas as they create a bright narrative for their futures.
