image1I am a licensed clinical social worker with a psychotherapy practice in the Northwest District of Portland, Oregon. I received my master’s degree in social work from New York University in 2005. Since that time, I have dedicated my career to working in all levels of mental health and addiction treatment.

I specialize in psychotherapy with people who haven’t had success with previous therapists and/or brief treatment. I work with individuals, couples, and families who want to make substantive and lasting changes in their lives.

I have completed advanced training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy at the Oregon Psychoanalytic Center, and am currently on their faculty.

While I have a special interest and expertise in addiction treatment, I also see people with many other difficulties–most commonly depression, anxiety and relationship issues.
