Upon completing my clinical training in Minnesota, I lived and worked as a registered psychologist and clinical supervisor in Australia for two years. Sydney is a richly culturally diverse city filled with immigrants from all over the world, and I had the privilege of doing therapy with people from an incredible array of backgrounds and traditions.
For the past 20 years I have been a therapist in Oregon. My specialties include working with couple relationship concerns, separation and divorce decision-making, trauma recovery, adjustment to significant life changes, and multicultural issues such as adoption, bi-racial identity, international relocation adjustment, and intercultural relationships. With informed consent, I coordinate care with your other local health professionals to provide comprehensive treatment.
Recent continuing education includes seminars in the provision of online therapy, EMDR and trauma processing, implicit bias in health care, anxiety disorder treatment, the aging brain, suicide assessment and prevention, cultural competency, and professional ethics.
