"I've been able to have a highly successful relationship with youth and young adults that thoughtfully resolves issues they feel are causing angst in life. For many, this includes life adjustments, substance use, mood related issues, self-harm, and trauma. I also support a large percent of young women working to have positive body image and esteem. I work as a collaborative partner to youth and their support system in identifying personal goals and practical tools to obtain them. Youth exit with a broader understanding of self and increased skills to sustain progress and overall happiness."

"Do you ever wonder, despite all your knowledge and efforts for growth that you still end up in a pattern of doing the same thing over and over again? Well, it's not your fault and there is a way to change it. When we are free to truly see and understand the connection to our brain, body, mind, and relationships, we can actually rewire our brains to build new neural pathways for new ways of thinking and being. Most of what we do, we have no idea why we do it; almost 85% is not on a conscious level."

My favorite client is the one who recognizes this need and has the desire to make change happen. It takes courage to risk involving an unknown person in such an intimate process; and it takes courage to change.

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.
