UPDATED JANUARY 2021: I am unable to accept new clients at this time. I believe that people, at any given moment, are functioning as well as they can, given the resources and knowledge they have in that moment. I use a DBT-informed, cognitive-behavioral approach in my counseling practice, and strive to help clients identify and progress toward goals that are personal, meaningful, and move them beyond surviving and into thriving. My counseling strategies are employed using a nonjudgmental stance to help clients uncover obstacles to change, combined with acceptance strategies when change seems out of reach.

I believe that each of us has an innate capacity to grow and heal. Sometimes, through difficult experiences and life transitions, we forget that healing and wholeness are always available to us. Therapy is a place where we can compassionately find ourselves again through expression and acceptance of all of our thoughts, feelings, and experiences. And as we begin to heal, our perspective of ourselves and others shift in ways that facilitate long-term and lasting change.

I assist adults and couples with relationship difficulties, parenting, personal and professional life transitions, anxiety/depression, and loss. I use a combination of mindfulness, somatic and depth therapies to help clients develop greater self compassion and Love as the basis for meaningful living. When we feel misaligned with our core self, as a natural result of a life lived through the eyes of others, we can lose our sense of creative purpose. If connectedness to self and others lacks robustness, life can feel very unsatisfactory.

It is my duty to be aware of the whole person and never to reduce him or her to a mental health challenge or diagnosis. Whole people have their own set of circumstances physically, emotionally, educationally and spiritually as well as other facets. I subscribe to a meta-approach. I employ multiple types of treatment modalities. I take these and with the person being served, weave a set of treatments that will best address whatever needs are being presented as obstacles to thriving.

If your life had a resumé, “chameleon” would be at the top. You’re so good at figuring out others’ needs, they’d never suspect that you have them too. If you were honest with yourself, though, you’d admit how stressful it is to live for other people. You’re terrified you’ll lose relationships if you speak up or say no. Your energy is drained or you feel resentful. You’re exhausted from wondering if others like you or approve of you. If you make choices that disappoint others, you feel guilty and selfish. Your whole identity is about pleasing others, & you want to feel comfortable being your authentic self, but you have no idea how.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in Portland with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based therapists in Portland can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Portland MBCT therapists.
