I joined the Graduate Department of Counseling as clinic director and as an assistant professor of counseling in 2016. In the two years previous, I was an assistant professor of counseling at Multnomah University in Portland while also directing the university’s Community Counseling Center. Before that, I was a counselor at Multnomah for two years, providing mental health support to individuals, couples and groups.

I taught previously at George Fox, working as an adjunct instructor at the university in 2014. I was also an adjunct faculty member for Western Seminary in Portland. I defended my PhD in counselor education and supervision from Oregon State University in 2016, and hold a master’s degree in counseling from Western Seminary (2010), a master’s degree in biblical and theological studies from Western Seminary, and a bachelor’s degree in ministry and the humanities from Corban University (2002).
