As a certified life coach and mindfulness instructor, I work with teens and young adults (ages 14-24), helping them gain clarity about who they are, how they learn and what they want. The work I do is meant for clients who are struggling with low self-esteem, lack motivation or are having difficulties at school. Coaching is extremely effective in supporting young clients to take significant steps toward the person they want to be and the life they want to live. Each coaching session is tailored to the individual and can be conducted in person, over the phone or via Skype.

I have been a licensed Clinical Psychologist in Oregon for 25 years. The origins of my orientation to psychotherapy lie in the Client Centered work of Carl Rogers where empathy, unconditional positive regard, genuineness and acceptance guide the therapeutic pathway toward personal growth. Along the way I've studied Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dilalectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), all of which inform my clinical approach to treatment, and are especially useful in the treatment of anxiety and mood disorders, e.g. Social Anxiety and OCD.

My specialty is working with young people (ages 10-45) who are forming a sense of who they are and who they want to be in the world. Together, we can focus on depression, anxiety, life transitions, LGBTQ understandings (needs, exploration, learning, questions, support) and forming a solid connection to our identity in the world. Much of my work also centers on helping parents understand their children and creating the space their children need to feel whole, loved, supported and connected. The work I do helps build acceptance, understanding and allows growth from challenging events or emotions.

At Connections First we have faith in the power of connection: with your inner life and to the outer world through meaningful relationships. We believe that mental health is an effect of feeling more deeply connected to ourselves and to others through the safety of transparent, emotionally honest relationships. How we communicate with ourselves and those we care about determines whether we possess integrity and feel empowered to express ourselves as human beings. Much of our symptoms are the effects of emotional, psychological, and physical isolation and self-alienation which can even happen when we are surrounded by other people.

My work focuses on helping survivors of betrayal trauma to heal and to thrive. Most of my clients have experienced a betrayal of trust either by loved ones such as a parent, partner, or friend, or an institution such as their university or employer. I specialize in helping survivors to overcome feelings of shame and self-criticism that are actually adaptive responses to betrayal trauma, but that are no longer serving them. In learning to let go of shame and self-criticism, a new way of living becomes possible that is richer, more joyful, and more connected than was previously possible.

In today's society it is not easy being "different". As humans, we need connection, but sometimes it's hard to build relationships if who you are doesn't match the expectations of family or loved ones. Lack of connection can lead to depression and anxiety, especially if you believe you don't fit in or experience real oppression. Relating authentically to family, friends and co-workers presents unique challenges and counseling can help, especialliy if it's done together with partners and family members. I believe in the power of relationship--to ourselves, our loved ones, our co-workers, our animal companions, and our environment.

Do your relationships cause you anxiety? Are you exhausted by life, rather than delighting in it? Are you working too hard in your friendships, in your family, at work, or in your romantic relationships? I work with many people struggling with issues related to untreated codependency. Structured to please and avoid conflict, you have built a life that you have molded for others and not for yourself. At a certain point this creates what we call, in the language of psychotherapy, symptoms. I help you to strengthen your boundaries in relationships and regain creative control over your life.
