"I serve couples, families and individuals in Portland. Specializing in relationships, I see therapy as a practice of assisted self-discovery, facilitating deeper levels of awareness and change. I believe we have an inherent ability to heal ourselves. I offer you the experience of mindful observation, acceptance and compassion, so you may learn to offer that same unconditional positive regard towards yourself. Sitting in close and conscious relationship with a skilled therapist can be a profound vehicle for this process. Using an integrative approach, I recognize the interconnectedness of body, mind, and spirit while considering constraints in my clients' lives."

"After 25+ years of providing counseling I find my philosophy has grown simpler and more to the point. Successful counseling is built on a positive and trusting relationship, much as successful living is dependent on trusting, healthy relationships. I bring a broad array of treatment tools to my work including gestalt, object relations and psychodynamic theory. Most importantly I bring myself; my heart, my humor, my understanding, knowledge and years of experience. I work with adults and children, couples and groups(this includes families)."

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in 97205 view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 97205 are able to work with a wide range of issues.
