Rhea applies an integrative approach to therapy, drawing from person-centered, existential, psychodynamic, somatic, and gestalt therapeutic frameworks. Depth, meaning-making, and relationship to self are often a primary focus in Rhea’s approach with clients, but she also strives to tailor therapy to the needs and goals of each individual client. Rhea believes the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is a crucial component in facilitating healing and change.
Rhea earned a Masters degree in Professional Mental Health Counseling from Lewis & Clark College. She is a registered LPC Intern in the state of Oregon and a LMHC Associate in the state of Washington. Rhea is currently supervised by Peter H. Addy, PhD, LPC, LMHC. Prior to receiving her MA, Rhea worked in residential mental health care facilities for 6 years.
Rhea is passionate about mental health care and is especially interested in working with clients who are navigating shame, trauma, anxiety, depression, existential or spiritual crises, and major life transitions. She currently works with individual adults, teens, and couples. Rhea welcomes clients of all backgrounds and strives to maintain a practice that is social-justice and trauma-informed.
In her free time, Rhea enjoys dance and creative movement, vinyl DJing, playing her synthesizers, and spending time in nature.
