I received a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Portland State University in 2002 and a Masters
Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2007, also from Portland State University. I am a
member of the American Counseling Association and an associate member of the American
Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. As required by the Oregon Board of Licensed
Professional Counselors and Therapist, I am continually involved in on going education in my
field and have a minimum of 40 hours of continuing education every two years.
My interactions with clients are enriched by my therapeutic training and life experience. I have
four grown children which are all at different stages of leaving the nest and a wonderful husband
of 27 years. I have lived on both sides of the United States including Maine and California and have
experienced many of life’s joys and difficulties. I feel my life experience is an asset that proves
invaluable in my counseling practice.
