I have worked with children, adolescents, and families in the mental health, education, and social services fields since 2000 and joined the School-Based Health Alliance in 2017. My current work at SBHA includes leading mental health and substance abuse prevention initiatives and supporting a variety of consulting, technical assistance, training, and continuing education efforts for schools and school-based health centers.
I am both a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Licensed School Counselor in Oregon and a Registered Play Therapist (RPT). In addition, I have a dual endorsement Master’s degree in Community Mental Health and School Counseling from Oregon State University and a Bachelor’s degree in English from Willamette University. I work remotely for SBHA from my home in Oregon. When I am not working, you can find me traveling and enjoying the outdoors with family and friends.
