"You want things in your life to change, and you want them to change fast. I approach therapy from a practical perspective: part of our work together will be to help you determine what changes you want to make, and get started with some practical actions (yes, homework!). You can expect to see results fairly quickly, usually after 2 or 3 sessions. As we work together over 8-10 sessions, more deep-seated patterns may emerge, and you can decide to what extent you want to do this deeper change work."

"I work with clients on a short-term model, identifying strengths and enhancing coping skills. I also do long-term insight-oriented work; identifying patterns of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors which reflect unconscious conflict and create barriers in relationships with oneself and others. Symptoms of anxiety and depression are often what prompt people to enter therapy. Some people want to learn tools and behaviors to alleviate symptomology; while others continue with therapy, after symptom reduction, and explore internal themes from their family-of-origin and how they are impacting their relationships today. I believe change occurs through the therapeutic relationship."

"Occasionally, people struggle with adverse circumstances, relational difficulties, and issues of self-concept and purpose that leave them feeling overburdened, inadequate, or simply not themselves. In efforts to feel better, we get stuck in extreme and irrational thought patterns, act impulsively/compulsively out of fear and anger, and engage in self-destructive behaviors. At heart, each of us yearns for comfort over pain, autonomy to live our truth, and love and acceptance as we are. Fortunately, counseling can mitigate suffering by addressing core issues, helping people experience life with greater ease and contentment. "

"Stressful events experienced in early life often lead to negative self-image and sabotaging mechanisms in adult life. As most modalities focus on alleviating symptoms, the causes at the root of our dysfunctions are continually ignored. Unresolved root causes are a driving force behind our physical, mental and emotional imbalances. Forensic regression allows us to go back in time to the roots of our issues. Once root causes are correctly identified, addressed and resolved, we are able to facilitate rapid and lasting relief.

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