I love my work as a couples' counselor. I'm a Gottman Seven Principles Program Educator. I have over 20 years experience doing individual and couples therapy, and 15 years in private practice. I help couples improve communication, rekindle intimacy and improve awareness of patterns which may result in defensiveness, or feeling "not heard" by your partner. In individual therapy, I create a warm environment where my clients feel comfortable to discuss their issues. Together we develop goals & strategies for cultivating positive changes. In couples work, we address problematic communication to change those patterns from ineffective to effective habits & behaviors.

Hello. I've been a practicing therapist for over 25 years and have been a student of Buddhist mindfulness practices for over 30 years. As I get older, the work is more about helping people to be happy being themselves, and to fine-tune the Life they’re living. These are crazy times to live in but it’s actually a great time to do spiritual work!

Life can be hard and many of us feel out of control or alone. I believe we are meant to have connections with others in order to create bonds that provide the framework of how we interpret the world around us as well as our own sense of self. When crisis and conflict occur, and these relationships are challenged, life can seem impossible-but this is where interpersonal growth can occur. No matter what the issue, finding the desire and courage to overcome these challenges is a personal and important decision. Choosing the therapist who is the right fit for you is the next step.

A lifelong student and teacher of the psychological and spiritual life, I am significantly influenced by the writings of psychologist Carl Jung and others, as well as spiritual teachers of various faiths. I generally work with clients from a combination of psychological modalities with one direction in mind - allowing the needs of the client to direct the way. Deeper work may also be necessary to unearth old wounds and resolve unhealthy patterns of behavior. I am also skilled in helping those who are transitioning through changes in career, life, and relationships.

Congratulations on taking steps to getting support! Therapy is a way to not feel so alone with our pain, change our thoughts and behaviors so they are more adaptive and healthy, and allow us to live in a more expansive way. I see you as the expert on you, and my role as an expert in healing, together we collaborate to get you where you want to be in life. Brain science, attachment theory (childhood relationship with our caregivers), and the context of our culture (as it intersects with our identities) are the lenses I use to strengthen your awareness, feel feelings, and heal. Laughter and peace are a necessary part of healing too!

These times come for us all and can be an invitation to tend unhealed wounds, uncover intuition, strengthen relationships, and make brave and compassionate choices toward a life you love. I help women to transform inter-generational trauma into wholeness and vitality, stay grounded through fertility challenges and new motherhood, and establish healthy boundaries and nourishing relationships.

However, learning to manage and improve relationships can bring about significant satisfaction, confidence and joy.

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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Portland are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Portland

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Portland you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Portland and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Portland or family therapy in Portland.
