I have been in social work field since 1993 initially working with at-risk teens and their families. In 1994 I received a Master of Art degree in Anthropology from Hunter College in New York City. I continued to grow in my social work experience and in 2002 I graduated from Portland State University with Master of Social Work degree. I am licensed with Oregon Board of Clinical Social Workers. My clinical training centered in working with individuals, children and families affected by medical crisis and chronic illness and end-of-life issues.


I work with children, adolescents, adults and families. I combine varied interventions based in cognitive-behavioral, relational, play and art approaches to partner with people as they face adverse situations and learn new ways to cope and heal from their experiences.

I specialize in treatment of:

  • • Anxiety
  • • Depression
  • • Trauma
  • • Grief and loss
  • • Parenting and relationship issues
  • • Coping with stress

My areas of expertise include:

  • • Healing from trauma
  • • Adjustment to challenging life transitions
  • • Coping with chronic pain
  • • Children and adults living with acute, chronic or life threatening illnesses
  • • Helping adults and children with complicated grief and loss
  • • Bereavement support
