Pulse Wellness is a unique cooperative dedicated to radical well-being.
We are a highly compassionate, queer-informed therapy practice in Portland, Oregon. We’re also the only employee-owned mental health worker cooperative in the state, and one of the few in the country! We are dedicated to the radical well-being of practitioners and clients alike.
We also provide supervision and peer support to other therapists and social workers in our multiple communities.
Some of our other offerings include:
- caregiver and caretaker coaching
- family counseling
- supervision: both to CSWA’s and to partnering organizations
- radical wellness and self-discovery trainings
- trainings for groups and teams
We work with openness, honesty and compassion with all genders, identities, and ages to find a place of wholeness that everyone deserves. We are dedicated to constant learning in order to better serve our clients.
We strive to repair the world by healing our clients, families and communities. Also known as Tikkun Olam, this reparative work brings us balance and heals us in return.
We have seen first-hand that oppressive systems cause great harm and we believe in the reparative need for both social justice and personal healing. We also believe that some of this repair from trauma begins at home, and that caregivers need extra support to do this important work. Our work is in helping our clients not only to survive, but to thrive.
Simply put: our goal is to connect people to their core values, intuition and best selves. Getting there is usually a radical and transformative journey. We’re ready to be your compassionate and no-nonsense guides. This is our life’s work and also an ongoing learning process for us as practitioners!

Meet our team:
I teach as Adjunct Faculty at the School of Social Work at PSU and work with individuals, couples and organizations. I’m what’s called “client-centered” in my approach. Your story, culture and values are at the heart of the time we spend together.
Therapy is a uniquely creative and collaborative process. You may feel stuck, but you’d be surprised at your inner resources. I’m here to help you find them!
Together, we can map a way forward. You deserve to feel joy. You deserve a balanced life.
As a Black, gay clinician with intersectional identities, I have firsthand knowledge of the roles race, culture and gender play in who has access to therapy and how it’s provided. My commitment is to create a safe space and normalize therapy for everyone who has encountered marginalization due to identity. I offer an inclusive and affirming environment for change work.
I work with both teens (and their parents!) and adults, from ages 13 to 65+.
I can help you challenge those internalized narratives of shame, despair, co-dependency, and people-pleasing that leave you stuck, exhausted, and feeling alone.
Are you a chronic fast-goer, over-doer, over-thinker? I’ve spent my career in fast-going jobs and had to learn to slow down so I could have the family, friendships, dog, and hobbies I wanted. I want to help you do the same (though the dog part is optional).
I primarily work with youth—children (ages 8+), preteens, teens and young adults—who are LGBTQ-questioning and straight alike, struggling with life’s challenges and willing and ready for change.
I work with LGBTQ+ adults and allies, too!
There comes a time when the tools and skills we once relied on to keep us safe no longer work for us. We need to find new ways to move through the world as we build the life we want to live.
I am excited to co-create a trusting space with you so that we may do this work at your pace, with your needs in mind.
I aim to help you find clarity and self-compassion amidst the chaos of this imperfect world. We may check in with the body as a guide for deepening understanding of emotions, strengthening the mind-body connection, and building more trust with your intuition.
Are you ready to
take a transformative journey with us?
