Sometimes we experience increased stress, depression, and anxiety based on a variety of factors – trauma, childhood experiences, transitions, loss, difficulties in relationships, or work/life balance. Therapy can help build confidence, learn new skills to cope with challenges, increase quality of relationships and connection with others, and make meaning out of difficulties. You don’t have to go through it by yourself."

"When seeking a therapist you want someone who'll be able to recognize who you are and what you're needing. No one wants to waste their time or have the setback of meeting with someone and leaving the office more discouraged than before you came in. You're looking for someone to see you clearly and support you with whatever you're struggling with, wherever you're stuck, however much (or little) pain or confusion you're in - whether you're single, married, struggling as a step-parent, dealing with the loss of someone close, feeling lonely or dissatisfied."

Our conversations create a safe and nurturing space for you to grow in the confidence of your worth, your aspirations, and your life circumstances. From this awareness comes a deeper knowing of yourself and a more effective "hands on" capacity for dealing thoughtfully and constructively with the challenges of living.

At other times, the stress begins to take over our lives and we may need extra support. We may start to struggle in our relationships with our loved ones, function poorly at work or at school, or we may stop doing the things that we enjoy.

I also specialize in divorce-related services: parent-child reunification therapy, divorce mediation, and parent coordination. My approach emphasizes helping people achieve practical results and is based in family systems and cognitive behavior theories. One of my guiding beliefs is that people are basically competent and are always seeking to solve problems on their own. In most cases this works well, but sometimes people get stuck and their attempted solutions either have no effect or make things worse. I see my role as helping people get "unstuck.""

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Buckman, 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.
