Do you struggle with frustrating issues that you, your family, or your partner(s) can’t seem to get past? If you’re going through a period of loss, change, or feeling stuck, therapy might be the way forward. My therapy style is collaborative and integrates the wisdom from my client’s experiences and from counseling theories rooted in empowerment and equity (Narrative Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, and Emotionally Focused Therapy). My therapeutic work is rooted in anti-racist, anti-capitalist, anti-fatphobic, trans- and queer-affirming, polyam and kink-affirming, neurodivergence-affirming theory and practice.

I lean heavily on CBT for its distinction between behaviors and thoughts and the narrative theory for its explanation of how we use stories to interpret our lives.
I believe that human nature in its many forms is always evolving and if we are able to harness and lean into this change and learn to grow in healthy ways we can become our best selves. I seek to build a positive therapeutic relationship with all my clients to better comprehend the problems that they may be dealing with in their lives and attempt to assist them in finding healthy resolutions.

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. My work is only via audio/video (Zoom), so if your insurance covers this kind of treatment, please consider calling or texting me.

Do you feel like you're doing "everything right" yet you still feel like something is "off"? Somehow you feel both anxious and depressed at the same time yet you can't pinpoint why? Or maybe you can pinpoint why - you just received an unwanted diagnosis, a loved one passed away, you're dealing with past trauma, going through a divorce, or trying to adjust from living at home to living in a dorm. Maybe in an effort to cope, you've turned to alcohol, food or some other escape. But you're tired of just surviving and you're ready to start thriving.

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. Beaverton Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in Beaverton.
