I graduated with my Master's Degree in Applied Behavioral Science from Bastyr University in Seattle in 2003. The focus of my education and training was in marriage and family therapy. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor with a license through the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists. Prior to getting my Master's degree, I worked extensively with individuals, teens and families in various non-profit community mental health facilities in Portland.
I was born in Israel, I have lived in Portland since the age of two. I went to Wilson High School and graduated in 1998 from the University of Oregon where I majored in Business Administration. In addition to loving the work I to do, I enjoy time with my family, playing basketball, watching good t.v. (The Wire and Friday Night Lights are two of my favorites), playing board games and going on hikes.
