I believe in the inherent goodness of each individual and that we all have a capacity for change and a proclivity towards resilience and self betterment. Maybe you’re not living the life you want or you have conflicting beliefs or conditioned ways of behaving. Under this is often a disconnection from ourselves, others, and/or the natural world. Every challenging thought, behavior, or habitual reaction has at one time served a positive function for an individual. Later, however, it may keep us hung-up, facing roadblocks, feeling stuck, and/or won’t allow us to live the lives we want.

Struggling with relationships, disturbing emotions, traumatic pasts, despair, addictions, utter confusion, all of this has meaning and the potential to propel us toward a better life. My job is to help people understand the process of what's happening and provide tools, skills and insights to navigate not just this situation, but future ones as well. So often people focus on symptoms instead of causes. Sometimes it's about managing symptoms, but more often there awaits an opportunity to get to the root and grow through and beyond this obstacle, to be more aware, capable and resilient than ever before.

Happiness depends on feeling good. It’s hard to feel good when your relationships are struggling, or you feel misunderstood and not seen at work, or by your family or partner. Looking outside of yourself for reassurance or love is a game of chance- it works sometimes, but learning how to source your own self worth is a sure thing. Becoming more aware of your emotions and learning to listen to what they are telling you teaches you how to get what you need both from yourself and from others. With this kind of "emotional fluency" you become a more confident, graceful, happier version of yourself.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Bend using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
