"Our lives evolve in relationship to ourselves, our partners, our families, communities and other beings (e.g. animals & the land). Healing involves allowing a healthy flow of emotion, communication, care and balance in those areas where we find ourselves stuck. I specialize in working with international and interracial couples, sex therapy, foreign students and employees, third culture children and their families, and anxiety related disorders including traumatic stress, generalized anxiety, panic attacks and social anxiety from a multicultural perspective.

"It is my belief that people find their problems to be oppressive and desire relief from them. I work from a systemic perspective and believe that symptoms are sustained through habits, cycles, and through the meaning one makes of one's life. I work collaboratively and utilize my client's world view, strengths and resources. My frame of reference in understanding my clients is from the Narrative Therapy perspective and as appropriate I utilize cognitive behavioral interventions, mindfulness practices, and sometimes EMDR to help my clients achieve the change they desire. If your insurance allows, we can do therapy via audio/video."

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Portland 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 Portland are able to work with a wide range of issues.

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.
