The journey
of a thousand miles
begins with one step.

Where are you going?

Are you frustrated with a life transition?

Do you need support with school or work stress or relationship issues?

Are you curious about strategies for success with ADHD or autism?

My style is warm and authentic and I like to support people in their struggles and at the same time encouraging growth. Through education, creative approaches and curious, open-minded investigation, I really believe change is truly possible.

Specializing in work with emerging adults and older, I have specific expertise with addictions, neurodivergence, anxiety, depression and grief across all age ranges. My practice is gender affirming and LGBTQIA+ informed.

I utilize an integrative approach of CBT, DBT, ACT, narrative therapy with an existential humanistic framework. My practice is trauma informed and I strive to acknowledge and understand my privilege and biases through a racial equity lens.

In December 2022, I completed trainings to be a Brainspotting Therapist Level One. I’m currently in Level One training for Internal Family Systems and completing the Existential-Humanistic Foundations of Therapy Practice certificate program with the Existential-Humanistic Institute.

Online and in person session hours: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 11am – 7pm.

Coaching available on Thursdays, insurance not accepted for this.

Clinical supervision for LPC Professional Counselor Associates in Oregon is available for $100/hour individual; $50/hour group.

ADA accessibility available, please explain your needs to me during our free online consultation session.

It would be my privilege to work with you on your path of discovery. Let’s chat.

OtterTherapy Animal in Training

Otter is a five year old labradoodle who has lots of experience in the office. He continues to work on his skills, but loves most laying on his back while getting belly rubs.

EllieTherapy Animal in Training

Ellie is a four year old American Cocker Spaniel and Otter’s best friend. She loves sitting in laps, playing with any toys (or socks!) and getting lots of pets.

My therapy animals can join for online sessions as well as in-person sessions.



I offer a free 30-minute consultation (via telehealth or phone), so we can get a sense of whether we have a good match for working together.

After the consultation sessions, in person sessions will be available at my office. We can discuss more about how this works.


Just like a face-to-face appointment, your Telehealth visit will be private and confidential. The system for telehealth video conferencing is easy to use and will be set up along with the secure client portal. Access to sufficiently fast internet and a quiet location is required for this service.

Medication & Emergencies

As a licensed counselor, I am not authorized to prescribe medication. However, we can work together to identify prescribers for your mental health needs if medications are suggested.

If you are experiencing a mental health emergency, please contact the Marion County Psychiatric Crisis Center at 503-585-4949, nationally, the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline on the phone number 988 or chat.


My insurance rate is $140 for individuals for the typical 60 minute session. 45 minute sessions available on an as needed basis. Income based rates also available. Intake session rate is $180; income based rates are included in fee schedule available upon request and included in my intake packet.


I take most major insurances: Regence Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Cigna, Evernorth, Providence, Optum/United, Moda, Pacific Source (non-OHP) and several EAP networks.

Depending on your insurance, income based rates may be preferred.

No Surprises Act/Good Faith Estimate

Clients who are not using insurance can receive an estimate of the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. I will provide the estimate in writing at least 1 business day before we begin therapy.

For information, call 800-368-1019 or visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.


With most services now online, payment through a secure online system is preferred immediately after session. Co-payments due at time of service unless we have arranged something otherwise.

Secure Online Portal

I use a secure system called Simple Practice to manage your health records. This system is HIPAA compliant, allows for all scheduling and billing, and provides the opportunity to fill out electronic forms and access telehealth video conferencing.

Cancellation Policy

If you do not attend your scheduled appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay $50 for a missed session unless another arrangement has been made.
