I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in both California and Oregon. I am also a credentialed School Counselor (PPS) for grades K-12. Currently I work as a Marriage & Family Therapist for East Cascades Counseling Services and as a School Counselor for Bend Senior High School. I have served previously as the School Response Program Coordinator for the High Desert ESD. Through these opportunities, I have been able to develop a passion for helping schools, communities, and programs develop and implement crisis response plans and best practice protocols regarding restabiliztion after a loss/trauma and grief. I am certified to train in a variety of evidenced based and best practice trainings which include: QPR, ASIST, Youth SAVE, and CONNECT Postvention. My previous experience includes work practice in a variety of community mental health agencies and school districts in both California and Oregon. Organizational agencies have varied from intensive outpatient substance abuse treatment, residential treatment facilities, juvenile halls, and Department of Child and Family Services/Court. I am certified to provide youth and families with both traditional and evidence-based therapeutic modalities including: Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (C-DBT), Family Trauma Specialist (C-FTS) Seeking Safety, Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM), Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies (PATHS), and Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA). I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and their families and have over 13 years of experience. I truly believe that HOPE is… the ONLY thing STRONGER than fear. It is a CHOICE, a BRAVE act of COURAGE to KEEP GOING.”
