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.

Welcome! As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have a passion for working with adults struggling with issues such as anxiety, depression, mood disorders, substance use, major life transitions, and relationship difficulties. That being said, I also feel that no issue is too big or too small to be explored in therapy.

I work with adults navigating a wide range of both normal and unwanted transitions. If you are facing a life change you could be experiencing symptoms of anxiety and depression as you work to adapt in the new landscape. You may be dealing with an expected change that is creating disruption and challenging your normal coping ability. Or, if it is an unexpected event, feeling unprepared, in shock, and reeling.

We are all born with the innate ability to connect deeply and authentically with ourselves and others. We are whole and hold all that we need within. This ability can guide us along a path in tune with our highest selves -- a path of joy, connection, and great strength. Along our path, however, we are exposed to experiences and influences that can cause us to become disconnected with this inner ability, this inner truth. As a result, we may feel unhappy, shameful, guilty, anxious, or many other emotions.

Either working with an individual, couple or family, I come from the perspective that every person is wired for connection and seeks growth to embody their wisdom and wholeness. Individuals can heal from past experiences, move through difficult transitions, and learn to tolerate the stresses of modern life. When we are disconnected from our natural capacity, we can experience life as intolerable and forget our inherent worth. I believe in a collaborative approach to not only find relief from problems, but also to restore health and a sense of internal wholeness.

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're too depressed, too anxious, or just plain ambivalent. Maybe you've tried quick fixes, but they aren't working any more. Or, perhaps you've taken steps toward change already, but you're doubting the process and wondering if the changes you've made will last. You're tired of feeling stuck, feeling hopeless, feeling isolated and alone. You're impatient with yourself, and quite frankly, you've not been too kind to yourself lately.

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 Laurelhurst, Portland can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.
