*Accepting New Clients*

My overall goal is to help you be authentically you, set and hold appropriate boundaries for yourself, and feel connected. I work from the belief that a fully recovered life from an eating disorder is possible for any individual through exploration, personal narratives, and strengthening a sense of worthiness. I also believe that these same ways help clients struggling with body image, anxiety, relationships, emotion regulation, and more. I value honoring each person’s journey and story. My clinical approach includes building connection, and shame resilience, to foster healing. I incorporate evidence-based practices like DBT, CBT, and Emotion Focused Therapy, while also being collaborative and client-centered.

I have utilized DBT and CBT in various settings, including eating disorder residential and PHP/IOP levels of care, as well as in school-based mental health programs. I have led DBT and CBT groups for adolescents and adults, both teaching and practicing the skills with the clients. I also bring DBT and CBT into my individual therapy sessions when applicable. I enjoy teaching and practicing these skills with clients, working to help incorporate them into daily life.

While I do not offer full-fidelity DBT, I do offer DBT and CBT skills training to clients, as well as, individual therapy from a DBT and/or CBT perspective.

Many different people can benefit from the DBT/CBT skills coaching provided, including: 

  •  Clients who have a good relationship with their primary therapist, but need extra help learning how to ask for what they want, handle daily emotions, and handle crises when they occur. 

  • Clients who do not have enough time to practice skills during their individual sessions with myself or their primary therapist. 

  • Clients who would like a refresher in previously learned DBT skills.

  • Clients who are on a waitlist for a full-fidelity DBT program, but need help now. 

Again, I do not offer full-fidelity DBT or DBT Therapy, rather DBT and CBT skills coaching and practice. Along with in-session DBT/CBT skills training and practice, you will receive homework after each session. This homework is expected to be presented in the following session for further discussion.  

I have worked in various treatment settings, including residential and intensive treatment for eating disorders and community/school mental health. I am passionate about treating individuals impacted by eating disorders, body image struggles, anxiety, and those struggling with emotion regulation. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern (#R4720), registered with the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists; and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate (#MC60719684), registered with the Washington Department of Health. I practice under the supervision of Brittany Boney, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (#T1049) and Approved Supervisor Candidate.
