I work with a team of highly skilled professionals who offer creative, thoughtful, positive ways to help client's find solutions to interpersonal conflict, trauma, family violence, and other life struggles.
It is the mission of New Springs Counseling service to give families and individuals experiencing the impact of conflict and/or violence encouragement, hope, and peace by providing highly trained clinicians with diverse backgrounds who help by giving people a safe place for restoration and healing to have happier lives.
I enjoy the way people seem to open up like seeds that sprout in rich soil when they find the right counselor. The creative process gives voice to the mirror inside of us that is ready to show us they way out of the struggles we encounter in life. Providing education about ways to cope with overwhelming emotions often brings peace to families in crisis.

I began working in human services in 2000 with the City of Sacramento recreation department providing art and program development with elder's and their caregivers.
From there I worked with a continuing care home in PDX, focused on end of life care.
I became a mother and formed a cooperative day care, volunteered in school, and became a voice for inclusive classrooms. Throughout this, I used art for healing and spirituality.
My master's degree is from Marylhurst University, where I earned a clinical art therapy and counseling degree. My fieldwork was with youth experiencing developmental disabilities using positive, strength-based approaches.
I moved into internship and worked as an assistant director and counselor to individuals experiencing severe mental illness, trauma, family violence, poverty, and houselessness.

The relationship you have with a counselor is as important as the skills you learn.
Think about a person who has influenced you in a positive direction in your life. Can you recall what you changed and how you did it?
