Areas of Clinical Focus:

Children and Adults (ages 3 and up)
Depression and Anxiety
Chronic Illness
Grief and Loss


I am a preferred provider for Blue Cross Blue Shield, Lifewise, ODS (MODA), MHN and Tri-Care health plans, and can bill most other insurance plans as an out-of-network provider.  I routinely work with the Crime Victim Compensation Program in several States.


Quality therapists continue with their own professional growth through education, consultation, and personal therapy.  This has been on-going throughout my career, and presently I focus much of my attention on trauma, complicated grief and mindfulness.  My education includes a Master of Social Work from Portland State University in 1990, and a Bachelor’s Degree in both Criminal Justice and Psychology from Western Oregon State College in 1988. 

My work experience has included therapy and counseling in Residential Treatment, a Domestic  Violence Shelter, and the areas of Adoption and Foster Care.  I have also been employed as a Hospice Social Worker, and as a Juvenile Probation Officer.  Presently I provide therapy in my own Practice, do volunteer work for OAASIS, and participate in many animal rescue projects.

Specializing in Treating Trauma and Survivors of Violent Crimes

Licensed as an LCSW in both Oregon and Washington State, I have been treating therapy  clients for over 25 years.  As the former owner of Mosaic Counseling Associates, I recently decided to open an independent practice.  At this time, I am seeing both children and adult therapy clients, with a wide variety of concerns. I am a member of NWADEBS, and do volunteer work for OAASIS.
