"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."

"I partner with individuals who essentially are at a crossroads in their lives. Whether it be a major change in their family dynamic or a career shift, transitions may be challenging and these may warrant additional support. As a counselor who uses a life coaching approach, I look forward to supporting individuals who want to see results, be inspired to go further distances and reclaim their internal joy."

"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."

"Do you need a specialist who understands PTSD from the inside out? Have you been or are you now in therapy, but feel like you need a healer who really gets traumatic stress? Are you a person of extreme sensitivity, unusually empathic, spiritual or psychic? I would like to offer you a path out of the extreme suffering of PTSD and traumatic stress. I work with many people whose previous therapies have not worked out for them, including folks who have suffered from extreme traumas such as ritual abuse and/or mind control.

"We tend to think we should be able to go it alone, or talk with a friend,...or just TRY HARDER when life feels overwhelming and difficult to bear. Sometimes these attempts fall short, making it easy to blame ourselves, feel discouraged and disconnect from ourselves and our relationships. Even asking for help seems hard! That's why I am passionate about helping individuals and couples who are courageously finding their way through those tough times. I believe that we all have an internal wellspring of strength, wisdom, and hope - and counseling offers gentle guidance and support to move toward feeling better and more like YOU!"

"People's stories are one of the most valuable things we have in life. If you want to have a meaningful relationship with someone, you need to be able to understand your own story. Helping individuals to develop and enhance their personal stories is at the crux of my work as a therapist.

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. Alphabet District, 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.
