ABOUT ME

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

I'm a licensed clinical social worker with 40 years' experience serving in both public and private sectors within the Portland metro area and surrounding rural communities. I've worked alongside families and individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds, ages, ethnicities, skill sets, preferences, needs, experiences, and circumstances, helping them to cultivate their ability to develop and thrive.

 

 

Yesterday

I was clever,

so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise,

so I am

changing

myself.

Rumi

For more than 30 of my years in practice I've also had the privilege of providing teaching, oversight, and consultation to both licensed and pre-licensed clinicians. 

I'm certified by Oregon boards of Clinical Social Workers, Professional Counselors, and Marriage & Family Therapists to provide clinical supervision in the state of Oregon.
