I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Oregon. I have over 20 years of experience in the mental health field. I worked in wilderness-based personal growth and therapeutic programs before transitioning to residential and community mental health settings.
What I learned from my experience in the wilderness has been a rich metaphor for me as a therapist. I know how to hike in to meet you where you are in your “emotional wilderness”. Together we can “map” the terrain and assess what you need so that you can move from feeling lost and helpless, to feeling confident and empowered –able to locate and use your own compass. You will then be able to carry your own backpack, filled with an amazing assortment of resources and skills to guide you in your relationships with yourself and others for the rest of your life.
