People often come to my office for a broad range of concerns, including depression, anxiety , relationship issues, career concerns and grief.
We all experience challenges during our everyday lives. Sometimes these challenges can seem overwhelming and discouraging. I work with people who want to make changes in their lives to help themselves overcome these difficult experiences. These changes can often be difficult to contemplate, yet alone act on. I strive to create a supportive environment for my clients where they can explore their concerns and the emotions that arise.

I have worked with a wide range of concerns including anxiety , depression, ADHD, trauma, self- esteem, parenting, loneliness and grief & loss.
Everyone is experiencing some level of stress right now. When this becomes coupled with other difficult experiences, it can interfere with our ability to make sense of the world, and find a safe and meaningful place in it. I seek to help clients to gain a compassionate understanding of where they are currently, and to find a greater sense of ease, meaning, creativity, and possibility for the future.

I work with clients who struggle with addiction, depression, anxiety , past life events and trauma that prevent them from accepting themselves and fully embracing joy in their lives. Each person must confront their own challenges but don't always have the tools needed to reach their life goals. A trusted professional can be a helpful partner in walking this path with you until you have the skills/insights needed to continue your journey confidently. I offer a safe and respectful place to look at yourself, your situation, consider alternatives and practice new skills with my support to help reach your goals.

My practice is currently closed to new clients. I work with people (18+) with concerns related to anxiety /stress, depression/low self-esteem, and health. I work with people when worry and stress interfere with their ability to work, have meaningful relationships, or carry out daily routines. I see clients with depressed mood and low self-esteem who have difficulty prioritizing their own wants and needs and consequently feel powerless, unfulfilled and dissatisfied with life. I also work with clients with eating and weight concerns such as emotional eating and poor body image.

I work with clients who are dealing with the full range of human experiences including relationship problems, grief, depression, self-esteem related difficulties, challenges with emotion regulation, anxiety / panic , trauma, and addictions.
My goal is to co-create a trusting relationship in which you can begin to explore and change the difficult patterns that have kept you from living to your fullest potential and happiness. We will work to understand the ways in which your history may have informed and limited your life and relationships (both with self and others). We will also look at how to transform, heal, and grow in the here and now; to respond rather than react when caught up in overwhelming emotions or negative thought patterns. I utilize a non-pathologizing practical approach that includes mindfulness, self-compassion, and behavioral interventions.

I help people create a practice where emotions can exist without judgment, where fear and anxiety and sadness can exist without becoming who we are.
My practice is heart-centered, and based on empowerment and choice. I believe we all have the ability and the right to live in deep and meaningful connection with ourselves and others. We often hold core-beliefs that get in our way: I am not enough, I am not lovable, etc. These core beliefs often show up as emotional patterns of depression, anxiety , relationship issues, or other life stressors. In therapy, we begin by understanding these core misconceptions, and learning skills to slow down the busy mind enough to notice them in the moment. By noticing, we create space to

I also have extensive experience working with anxiety , depression, general relationship difficulties, pre- and post-partum depression and anxiety , and identity issues (cultural, LGBTQI, gender).
I believe that even the most difficult symptom or behavior began as an earnest attempt to cope with something unmanageable. Understanding the purpose that symptom serves is a core component of the work of therapy. Unresolved feelings and beliefs can be explored and experienced, thus eliminating the need to hold on to a symptom that is no longer serving you. Incorporating skills to move away from the habit of using an unhelpful behavior gives a person a boost to finally break out of a difficult cycle. The creation of an authentic therapeutic relationship is the essential foundation from which the process of psychotherapy unfolds.

I help people who have anxiety , overwhelm or stressful relationships find clarity and serenity. In 2014, after years of talk therapy and recovery work, I became frustrated by the lack of progress in a few key areas. I decided to go deeper and I combined "parts work" with a mediation facilitation process. The healing I experienced was astounding. I researched other practitioners who were working at these deep levels, began studying evidence based techniques with Sarah Peyton, and I implemented these life changing models into my work. A past client posted: "Sara’s way of providing help creates peace in the battle zone of my brain."

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Portland anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Portland.
