Tigard Mental Health Therapist for
Adolescents and their Families
Finding a therapist that fits can be both difficult and confusing. We can help you navigate your way through the often bewildering maze of mental health services. Our mission is to provide personalized, high-quality mental health care to children, teens, and their families.
At your first visit, we complete a comprehensive bio/psycho/social assessment, exploring both presenting problems & challenges. Then we collaborate together, reviewing possible recommendations and information regarding helpful strategies and treatments.
We can help guide and facilitate referrals for other mental health services you might need, such as chemical dependency treatment, psychiatric evaluations, and/or medical management. We can also help coordinate your mental health treatment with other health providers or your child's mental health treatment with school personnel to meet his/her academic needs. Choosing a therapist does not have to be a daunting experience. With assistance, your experience with mental health services can be efficient and gentle.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I received a Masters degree in Social Work from Indiana University and have a bachelors degree in Sociology. I have worked in primary care settings as part of a team (integrating both medical and mental health services) and in school based settings.
I have specialized in working as a mental health provider for the past 14 years. I utilize various evidenced based treatments including Psychodynamic therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (as well as Trauma Focused CBT), Motivational Interviewing, play and art activities, family therapies, along with guided meditations and relaxation training to treat multiple mental health and behavioral issues.
