I love my work as a couples' counselor. I'm a Gottman Seven Principles Program Educator. I have over 20 years experience doing individual and couples therapy, and 15 years in private practice. I help couples improve communication, rekindle intimacy and improve awareness of patterns which may result in defensiveness, or feeling "not heard" by your partner. In individual therapy, I create a warm environment where my clients feel comfortable to discuss their issues. Together we develop goals & strategies for cultivating positive changes. In couples work, we address problematic communication to change those patterns from ineffective to effective habits & behaviors.

UPDATED JANUARY 2021: I am unable to accept new clients at this time. I believe that people, at any given moment, are functioning as well as they can, given the resources and knowledge they have in that moment. I use a DBT-informed, cognitive-behavioral approach in my counseling practice, and strive to help clients identify and progress toward goals that are personal, meaningful, and move them beyond surviving and into thriving. My counseling strategies are employed using a nonjudgmental stance to help clients uncover obstacles to change, combined with acceptance strategies when change seems out of reach.

We hide parts of who we are away because the world has told us we are "too much", which is weird because we may not even feel good enough. It’s easier to be who others need or want us to be, rather than risk showing them who we really are. We desperately want to connect - for them to see us, love the real us. But the fear, the messages that we have been carrying for too long about who we are, convinces us that if we share our true self, people will reject us, ridicule us, even leave us. Maybe our experience proves this fear true, or maybe we secretly agree that in some way, we don't deserve a fulfilling life or love. You feel stuck.

I believe that each of us has an innate capacity to grow and heal. Sometimes, through difficult experiences and life transitions, we forget that healing and wholeness are always available to us. Therapy is a place where we can compassionately find ourselves again through expression and acceptance of all of our thoughts, feelings, and experiences. And as we begin to heal, our perspective of ourselves and others shift in ways that facilitate long-term and lasting change.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in Portland or for a Portland CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy.
