"Much of my practice is built around working with teenage boys and their families. I also work with adult individuals. Adolescence can be a challenging stage of life for families, yet, it's also a developmental phase filled with wonderful, inspiring change. I enjoy helping teens and families navigate the changes of adolescence, while working to engage parents around their teenager's change process. My typical clients are teens/families who are struggling with adapting to the shifting roles and responsibilities of the adolescent life stage. I also see adults who are presenting with anxiety, depression, and relationship issues."

"Recognizing systemic and personal influences shaping our perspectives and actions can dismantle normalized expectations, challenge dominant scripts, invite de/re-construction, reveal the fragility of binaries and dichotomies, and expose the creation of iniquities. We internalize characteristics, beliefs, and patterns of institutions and structures around us, while our capacity to evolve, grow, and contribute is enduring and dynamic. Courage can carry us beyond modern conventions, towards practices of integrity, deeper connections, and psychological sustenance to create sustainable futures."

"Life feels overwhelming right now and you have no idea how to make it better. Every time you wander onto social media, you scroll through evidence that you're inadequate and broken. No matter what you do or where you are, you just want to be at home, on your couch because you're exhausted--physically and emotionally--and you wonder if life will always suck. I get it, you keep it bottled up inside and don't talk about it because you're worried no one will understand. You've tried opening up to people but it hasn't gone well and now you're all alone with the pain and shame. There's nothing wrong with you, something happened to you. "

"Life can be complicated. When the noise takes hold of our being it can blur our direction in life; make us feel untethered, isolated. This affects the connection we have to our loved ones, our work, our self-esteem, and our place in life. In turn, patterns of behavior set in that prevent us from achieving our personal goals. Then, it becomes the norm. The body reacts. Symptoms emerge. Anxiety, depression, and meaninglessness take hold. We get stuck. I'm interested in working with clients who are ready to delve into what lies beneath the surface, who are ready to work through their inner worlds to externalize what longs to be seen."

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. Irvington, Portland 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 Irvington, Portland.
