Are you struggling with anxiety, processing a painful life event, or moving through a major life transition? Is it time to start putting your wellbeing first? I aspire to create a space where you feel empowered to get comfortable with the uncomfortable and take the lead in your healing, while my role is to be a partner in your process. I am dedicated to client-centered, trauma-informed care and approach my work with the belief that we grow from our painful experiences, life transitions, and challenges. We can use the awareness and strength that comes from those experiences to become who we are meant to be.

I am a seasoned clinician who has worked with adults, couples and families for over 30 years. Increased awareness leads to increased options. Often the work of therapy is about making or repairing connections--interpersonal, internal or perhaps even spiritual. I provide individual adult psychodynamic psychotherapy; couples counseling : marital, pre and post divorce. I use a multi modal approach often including assessment and treatment from a family systems perspective and a psychodynamic perspective. I reserve a portion of my practice to provide a safe and intriguing space for children to express themselves and to be understood by adults. Facilitated parent-child sessions often help.

Couples seek online intensives to help repair current hurts or crises in their relationship or longstanding negative patterns.
Romantic relationships are tricky, if not treacherous. We long to feel important and understood and we expect love and intimacy to last a lifetime. But so often, our love relationships leave us feeling wounded, disillusioned, and discouraged. While there is never a guarantee of safety or security in relationships, there is the real possibility for depth, comfort, connection, and radiant joy. Couples therapy helps us confront the heal the deep wounds, discover new parts of ourselves, and find a safe haven in our relationships. Intensive Couples Therapy is a short-term, in-depth and focused approach to helping couples in distress.

Some of us come to therapy because we are suffering, or feeling stuck, around a particular issue. Other times, we arrive with a readiness to explore long held beliefs or feelings that are no longer serving us. Some of us have painful experiences from our past that are asking to be looked at, so that we can move forward in our lives, without fear. My goal, as a therapist, is to support individuals and couples to do that work in a way that feels safe and honest.

I am not accepting new clients at this time. As a fully licensed Clinical Psychotherapist, I believe that everyone has a desire to be successful in their life, but sometimes lack the skills or supports to achieve that goal. My non-judgemental approach will help you feel more comfortable facing the difficulties that are causing you to feel incomplete. Counseling can be an active, dynamic process, that can be exciting, challenging, and even enjoyable! I work with individuals, as well as couples and have a keen interest in Men's issues.

In my private practice I provide psychotherapy to individual adults, couples and families.

I enjoy working with clients to develop greater understanding of themselves, their relationships, and the patterns that are contributing to their dissatisfaction or distress. I approach this work from an empathic, non-judgmental and supportive stance that encourages a collaborative relationship between client and therapist.

I strive to create a safe and supportive environment for clients to explore their concerns and the emotions that may arise. I work with individuals seeking to make changes as well as couples who may be experiencing some strain or facing hardships in life. My training in psychological evaluations may be helpful to clarify underlying issues to be addressed in therapy.

I believe that "diagnosis and treatment" is too narrow a model to understand the depth and richness of our human experience, heal the wounds of our past history, and allow us to embody our joy and our fullness. I invite you to not only remove existing symptoms and change unhealthy behavior patterns, but to create a life of love, authenticity, and celebration.

What type of Portland mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Portland?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
