I am a National Certified Counselor & have a Masters of Science in Counseling from Oregon State University. I belong to the American Counseling Association, Oregon Counseling Association & the American Association of Christian Counselors. My approach to therapy is Constructivist Psychotherapy. This is a philosophy of counseling which encompasses both emotions & thoughts that a client has & how they can lead to either mental well being or mental distress. The techniques used to counsel are likely to include: dialogue, interpretation, cognitive reframing, awareness exercises, self-monitoring experiments, visualization, journal keeping & Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR). My approach is very respectful of the client's perspective & life experience.
