About Me



I grew up in Portland and have lived in the Portland area all my life. At Portland State University I earned a bachelor’s degree business. 

After a few years in the business world I was drawn to the rewarding field of psychology, particularly working with teen girls. I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and a certified alcohol and drug counselor (CADC). I’ve found running my practice thoroughly rewarding. And I take particular pleasure in helping to improve girl’s lives. I have experience working with: eating disorders, alcohol and drug abuse, self-harm, depression, anxiety, body image, and self-esteem.

I am passionate about showing girls their inner strength. The adolescent years are a critical time in a girl’s life. She is on the verge of making life-changing decisions that will shape her future. There is a lioness in every one of us waiting to be unleashed.
