Growth can be challenging, and we should not have to do it alone. It is a great honor for me to accompany you toward more ease and joy. I bring compassion, mindful presence, curiosity, and heartfelt acceptance to my work with adults, children, and families. The tension you feel in your body and mind can be valuable sources of information that point toward your underlying needs. With busy lives, we rarely have the opportunity to attend to these sources. My intention is to listen deeply so that we can take care of your underlying needs.

We are complex individuals, each with our own life experiences and challenges. I view counseling as a collaborative process in which individuals feel safe to explore their wants and needs in becoming the best version of themselves. We can learn to have more control over in our lives, and respond to the world in the way we want. I feel that mind and body need a balance of knowledge and understanding. I am providing telehealth services only at this time.

2020 has been a particularly difficult year, for all of us. As such, anxiety, depression, panic, feelings of grief/loss, despair, are all common symptoms that we would expect from events from this year. You are not alone, and seeking help is the first step. Clients who have goals of permanent healing, growth and change do very well with the therapies I use. In session the client identifies what needs to be worked on for the day, targets upsetting events and memories in the mind and body, and reprocesses/desensitizes these memories, with a reported result of greatly reduced distress and vastly improved functionality.

Would you like to experience life differently than you do now? Have you felt stuck in your current emotions or beliefs about yourself? Perhaps you have suffered stressful or overwhelming experiences that are impacting you today. Maybe you've even dealt with significant trauma. Often, these occurrences leave their mark in how we view the world around us and how we feel about who we are. Emotions like fear, pain, depression, and anxiety can become mainstays in our day to day life. It doesn't have to be that way.

Life is a journey! We all go through seasons where we feel overwhelmed, distressed, disconnected or lost, and our path becomes hard to navigate. I believe that compassionate, reflective therapy can help restore vitality and renew hope. Individuals, couples, children/families, experience emotional struggles and challenging behaviors because of the impact of a variety of past and present variables, not because of weakness. Symptoms/Behaviors are simply indicators of need, and actually illuminate innate strength that guides healing. I'm passionate about collaborating with you to build on strengths, explore barriers to enjoyment of life, and create a joyful resilience.

*Not currently accepting new clients* We all have a unique expression of life force energy, but at times it may seem the core self--our spirit--has been pummeled by trauma, loss, pain, unhealthy relationships, or life in a toxic culture. Often when trying to make change, clients find that despite being inspired, they can't do what they need to do in order to live the meaningful life they desire. Our thoughts and feelings are connected to our physical state, our relationships with partner(s), friends, family and the culture at large, as well as our spiritual life.

EMDR Therapists
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist's finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.

If you're looking for EMDR therapy in Portland or for a Portland EMDR therapist these professionals provide EMDR therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing and EMDR treatment. They include EMDR therapists, EMDR psychologists, EMDR psychotherapists, and EMDR counselors.
