I am an Oregon Licensed Professional Counselor committed to helping adults, youth, and couples learn how to take control of their lives and build healthy, satisfying relationships. My work focuses on relieving old pain, challenging old patterns of thought and behavior, and helping you be your best. I believe that we all have the potential for growth, development, and—ultimately—joy. Together, we can help you identify and expand your range of choices, search for solutions, and empower you to exercise your agency more consciously and effectively.
My approach to counseling is positive and client-centered. I bring the best of my education, training, and experience to each session, drawing from a variety of tools and theories that are consistent with gospel teachings and standards. My education includes degrees from BYU (BS, Family Science, 2000) and Santa Clara University (MA, Counseling Psychology, 2005) and special training in human development, family systems, parenting, communication, grief and loss, and trauma and dissociative disorders.
I’m passionate about strengthening marriages and families, improving relationships, and helping people overcome challenges so they can reach their full potential. In addition, I offer skills, insight, education, encouragement, and support as you work to improve relationships, make lasting changes, and navigate the challenges and transitions in your life. If you are ready to reconnect with what matters most and take control of your life, contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!
