I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Oregon. I received a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Portland State University in June 2012. I completed my internship at the M.E.T.A.(Mindful Experiential Therapy Approaches) Counseling Clinic in Portland, Oregon, where I counseled individuals, couples, and groups. In June 2013, I graduated M.E.T.A.’s Two-Year Comprehensive Training in Hakomi, RC-S, attachment interventions, and trauma release methods. Along with providing individual and couples counseling, I also teach group seminars for therapists on Overcoming Compassion Fatigue, Secondary Trauma, and Burnout. I am a Certified Compassion Fatigue Professional (CCFP) through the International Association of Trauma Professionals (IATP).
I grew up in Eastern Pennsylvania and now make my home in Portland where I enjoy spending time with family and friends, playing guitar, hiking, camping, and tennis.
