About me

I'm a gardener, a mother (pronouns she/her/hers), a neighbor, a citizen, and a licensed clinical social worker with more than 40 years' experience.

I find the garden to be an apt metaphor for teaching and learning, personal and professional growth, relationships, and life itself.


Over the past 30+ years years of practicing in both public and private sectors within the Portland metro area and surrounding rural communities, I've had the privilege of nurturing the development of licensed and pre-licensed clinicians as well as providing management and executive leadership to community mental health and school-based mental health programs.

Nothing will work unless you do.
