I am very excited to start my own counseling private practice in Eugene, Oregon. My new office is located on Country Club Road, just past First American Title Company, and I’m sharing office space with colleague Michelle Hogan. Right now I am accepting new clients, with a focus on teens, grief and loss, and those with mental illness. I can work with individuals, couples, and families both short and long term. Additionally, I am offering counseling services via Skype for clients who live outside of Lane County.
My previous experience includes working for a summer school and employment program for low-income teens, a shelter for families who are homeless and adults with severe and persistent mental illness, a non-profit publishing company whose focus was on adolescent development, and working with families through a hospice agency. My school-required field work included working at a group home for teen girls with mental illness, at a center which provides case management, counseling, classes, and support for low-income adults with mental illness and addiction recovery. I currently work at PeaceHealth Hospital as a medical social worker.
I am working on completing my license, meeting weekly with a supervisor individually and also in a group. Until I complete my license, I am unable to bill insurance. However, to make my services affordable I am offering a sliding scale fee.
