In my coaching, I USE A HOLISTIC, BODY-CENTERED APPROACH, drawing on both my experience as a seasoned clinician as well as twenty years of experience in leadership roles in public and non-profit agencies.

I provide several types of clinical consultation and coaching:

  • Providing SEASONED CLINICAL PRACTITIONERS with clinical consultation and support on challenging and complicated practice scenarios, including exploring and resolving ETHICAL DILEMMAS that emerge in direct and organizational practice.
  • Offering “supervision of supervision” for new clinical supervisors.
  • Supporting and guiding SEASONED CLINICAL PRACTITIONERS to create businesses and professional lives that are energizing, balanced, drawing on their strengths, interests, and practice wisdom. This can include clinical consultation for those practitioners intent on “unlearning” agency practices or beliefs that drain or demoralize them, or no longer serve them, as well as to maximize the effective use of self, including compassionate self-care, as they move toward becoming the healer they’re supposed to be.
  • Helping psychotherapists translate their direct practice expertise into engaging, trauma-informed CONTINUING EDUCATION workshops, which includes guidance on trauma-informed training design and adult learning theory, marketing and publicity for events.


In addition to my background as a psychotherapist and clinical supervisor, I draw on my ten years experience in organizational learning and development at a large public organization, and seventeen years teaching at the graduate level at Portland State University.

How Much Does it Cost?

For both forms of coaching, the fee is $180 per 50 minute session.

Nearby is the country they call life. You will know it by its seriousness. Give me your hand.
