I’m LGBTQIA+ affirming and often do evaluations for gender dysphoria and masculinizing/feminizing surgery.
Hello! I'm glad you're here. I am sure you're wondering if I am the kind of person who would be able to “get” you and accept you. I often work with LGBTQ+ clients and those navigating intersecting identities, such as how their family of origin, sexuality, and culture interact. I also find joy in working with young entrepreneurial women navigating the unique challenges that arise for women in tech, management, military operations and other traditionally male-dominated roles. Finally, I specialize in first responder health, professionals and mental health clinicians needing discrete support.

I have experience addressing obstacles to growth that fall within these categories: depression, anxiety, extreme mood swings, panic, histories of trauma or abuse, self-defeating patterns of thought and behavior, grief and bereavement, LGBTQ topics, and issues surrounding minority status.
As you consider talk therapy or medications, you're likely feeling some mix of overwhelmed, exhausted, unfulfilled, and "stuck." The way you feel might be connected to challenging transitions in your life, a sense of unmet potential, or even long-held emotions and memories of painful experiences and relationships. The good news is that therapy works, and finding the right "fit" in a therapist is a big initial step. Please feel free to contact me anytime to talk more or click over to my website to see a full description of my approach, fees, etc. I look forward to hearing from you!

Psychiatrists are the only doctors who don't look inside the body to assess a problem. Think about it; all other doctors use imaging and labs to look inside a person’s body when making a diagnosis. That coupled with your symptoms is how they determine what the problem is. Unfortunately, mental health providers have learned that how a person feels is their only tool in assessing somebody. Because of this, psychiatrists often have no idea what’s causing the problem. This limits the treatment options to a prescribed “band-aid" that is used to reduce symptoms, instead of addressing the underlying cause of a problem.

About Psychiatrists, meds and Psychiatric Nurses.

A Psychiatrist in Portland is a qualified medical doctor who specializes in treating mental health issues and diagnosable disorders.

Portland Psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals in that they may prescribe medication as well as practice psychotherapy in treatment. Sometimes, Psychiatrists form part of a clinical team in which they will diagnose and prescribe, while psychologists or therapists provide the client's psychotherapy.

As part of a clinical assessment, Psychiatrists may conduct physical examinations, take blood tests, and order and interpret lab tests and brain image scans, such as CT scans, CAT Scans, and MRIs.

The field of psychiatry in Portland has many sub-specialties, including pediatric psychiatry. Those who work with the elderly are called geriatric psychiatrists.

Other related sub-specialties include cognition psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, psychosomatic, forensic, reproductive medicine specialties, psychopharmacology , psychiatric genetics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurophysiology.

Psychiatric nurse practitioners in Portland, or mental health nurse practitioners, generally have an MS degree in nursing (MSN) and a number of years of training to become certified. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are able to assess and diagnose mental health conditions and prescribe medication. Portland Psychiatric nurse practitioners also have training that enables them to include psychotherapy with treatment.
