Hello. I'm available to talk.
I am a licensed clinical social worker, located in Oregon. Over my years working with people struggling with various kinds of mental health challenges, I discovered that the phone offered me, and them, the ability to be in touch in a way that’s much more convenient for my clients. For this reason, in my private practice, I use Teletherapy, which uses cloud-based communication technologies, such as HIPAA-compliant audio calls, secure messaging, email, and chat.
My therapeutic philosophy is that it is very possible, with the right kind of support, to recover from most mental health challenges. Let’s have a discussion about what you want to achieve, and we can come up with a plan that will help you live your best life.
Telemental Health Distance Therapy is the delivery of mental health counseling via the Internet. Some folks refer to it as e-therapy, distance therapy, or web therapy. I call it GOOD WORK!
If you are looking for low cost and highly effective counseling, give me a call. As an OpenPath therapist, I offer a sliding scale, because I believe therapeutic support should be accessible to everyone.
I treat the people I work with as "people first," rather than labels, cases, or subjects. My goal is that you can reach me when you need me, without having to leave the comfort of your own home.
Since I have been involved with healing work, the definitions for "disorders" has continually changed. Because I believe in the absolute and intrinsic beauty and worth of human beings, I'm more likely to frame something as a challenge or a difficulty than as disorder.
One of the nicest things about having been involved in this work for so long is that I've had the privilege to watch people change profoundly when they get the support and encouragement they need. If you work with me, we will spend time reframing whatever "disorder" you believe you have to make your work more precise.
