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.

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 with patients focuses on increasing awareness of patterns in relating to self and others. Within the context of the therapeutic relationship, we work together to explore the combination past and present factors interact to shape and sometimes limit perspective. This increased self-awareness enables patient's to respond in new ways to emotional and relational patterns. As a psychologist, I work to empower my clients by helping them to build upon their strengths and to develop an accurate sense of self, and better communicate interpersonal needs and resolve obstacles to change.

Stuckness, struggle and pain may be natural parts of life, but tackling those things alone doesn't have to be. I work with people facing all sorts of challenges—like self esteem, sexuality, depression, anxiety, past trauma, relationship struggles, gender identity, grief and loss, and life transitions.

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.

Psychophysiology is actually simple. What you think affects your brain chemistry and your mental/physical well being. In today's busy world, people often don't listen to their bodies about staying healthy. Combining counseling with psychophysiology/biofeedback has proven effective in treating many stress related syndromes. Clients learn to recognize their individual stress response, develop new skills to allow change in habitual patterns. This process allows clients to become active participants in their own health and wellness, while gaining self-confidence/self-responsibility.

You've been suffering on your own for far too long, pushing away the pain until it feels like you have nothing left. You're exhausted. You feel alone but you put on a mask, smiling on the outside while you're in so much pain inside. Because you pull it together for the people around you, nobody realizes what is going on. You've lost interest in everything. You can't concentrate. Sometimes you hate yourself and wonder if you deserve to feel good ever again. You feel weak and you are so tired of this pain.

Coping Skills Therapists
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, therapists in Buckman, Portland can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.
