NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS For most people, strong relationships are an important indicator of health and well-being. When we feel stuck in old patterns that no longer serve us, our connection to others suffers too, which can turn up as depression, anxiety, or simply feeling alone and disconnected. By reconnecting with our essential gifts and strengths through the therapy process, we in turn can offer more to family, friends, and community.

I work with individuals and couples who are adjusting to a change in their life or find themselves "stuck" in patterns of behaviors or moods that disturb them. Examples include relationship stress, anxiety, depression, family of origin issues and addiction/abuse concerns. Some times this is a result of a loss of a loved one, a change in relationship status or employment status. Sometimes the cause is not apparent.

Hi, I'm Lindsay! I'm a half-Chinese, half-Jewish (non-practicing), female-identified, chronically-ill, fat human. My goal as a therapist is to increase individuals' understanding of their unique experiences in this world, the messages they have received from those around them, and how both of these can impact present life and relationships. I particularly enjoy working with those who exist in the in-between or grey areas of identity and experience; those who may feel unseen or unheard in their everyday lives. My therapy practice is trauma-informed, Health at Every Size oriented, and queer-affirming.

You’ve done your best to follow the rules and make everyone around you happy. Others see you as a strong person, but you find yourself feeling alone and frustrated. The pressure of being the strong, dependable person wears on you. If something goes right, it doesn’t seem to last. Someone offers a compliment, but you dismiss it without even trying. All the good things that occur seem like they’re temporary and you’re waiting for the other shoe to drop. You never feel good enough. It feels like you have an obligation to please others, but there’s no one there to return the favor. It’s finally time to get some help and change this.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Portland 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.
