Rethink | Reality
SPECIAL NOTICE: I am transitioning over the course of 2022 from working with Mid Valley Counseling Center to my own private practice. In this process, I will only be accepting new patients in my private practice.
Short & long-term psychotherapy for children, adolescents, & adults.
When working with a child or adolescent, family sessions are often central to treatment in order to break patterns that reinforce problems & build on strengths to create more satisfying dynamics.
My practice focuses on people who want to enjoy greater peace and more satisfying relationships. I’m pleased to serve children, adolescents, and adults. The emphasis of my work includes treating depression, anxiety, PTSD, interpersonal difficulties, psycho-spiritual issues, ADHD, and child/adolescent behavior problems. I enjoy incorporating faith into treatment for those interested in doing so.
I employ a variety of techniques to help my patients improve. We generally begin with things that can help them feel better quickly and gain hope. When desired and appropriate, we then work closely to understand and address potential underlying dynamics. In this way we can together encourage lasting change and ongoing improvement.
I grew up in Salem-Keizer and am committed to serving our community. I’ve enjoyed working with college students at three nearby universities and with children and families in a local pediatric clinic and in the public school system. I want to be a dedicated and compassionate champion for my patients in their challenges and victories.
