"Have you ever wondered why one day you feel enthusiastic, clear, ready to follow your dreams...then the next day, you wake up feeling empty, confused, and full of self-doubt? You remember feeling more motivated and enthusiastic, but you just can't access it. Maybe you feel hopeless that anything can change. Likely, you have tried a number of things to help yourself feel better. Maybe these prior efforts have led to temporary relief, but not to more lasting, holistic changes. I can help! My therapeutic goal is to help you find ways to live a happier, more satisfying life."

"What if the life with our partner could be as exciting as it was when you first got together? Has your relationship been shaky? Are you feeling stuck? Are you arguing all the time and just can’t get on the same page? Or maybe you aren’t really in that much conflict, but you don’t feel close or connected, and have been drifting apart. Yes, when relationships are difficult, many couples wonder. "

"Over thousands of years, philosophers have developed tools to explore the good life--what makes life meaningful, joyful, and fulfilling. As a professional philosopher, I draw upon those tools to empower you think clearly, live purposefully, and choose confidently. In our sessions, I offer friendly and accessible conversation, compassionate listening, and a healthy dose of humor. Together, we investigate your deepest assumptions about what is true and important so we can challenge what is not working, develop what is, and find greater order, harmony, and power in your thoughts and actions. We awaken and cultivate your inner philosopher."

"I believe that the ability to grow is one that all humans naturally possess but that we need help to bravely enact the changes we desire. Our experience of life is shaped by the way we process the world. Sometimes we were heard and sometimes we felt invisible. Sometimes we knew what to do; often we did not. Counseling can help to restructure thinking patterns and shift responses. For me, counseling is a collaborative process where I'm able to help clients find awareness and compassion for themselves and others."

"I enjoy working with people who seek both short term solution-focused therapy and those who choose to pursue longer term goals of personality change in the context of depth psychology. There are truly many paths to achieving significant relief from symptoms of loss, depression, and anxiety or a change in one's personal situation. I view the therapeutic journey as Herodotus understood the original meaning of the word history (historous): not as a noun (i.e. a fixed thing) but a verb: literally to go and find out for one's self."

"I support singles, couples and other partner sets. Using a social-sexual ecology model and recent developments in neuroscience and attachment theory, I have successfully helped people find loving resolution to conflict - either to stay together and deepen in trust and vibrancy; to choose to move apart with compassion and caring; or to redefine their ways of relating altogether. As a behaviorist I understand every behavior has a purpose and a message - so there is no reason to blame or shame someone who has done something which hurts us. We can address the problematic behavior without making someone 'the problem'."

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Portland Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
