"I love my work as a couples' counselor. I'm a Gottman Seven Principles Program Educator. I have over 20 years experience doing individual and couples therapy, and 15 years in private practice. I help couples improve communication, rekindle intimacy and improve awareness of patterns which may result in defensiveness, or feeling "not heard" by your partner. In individual therapy, I create a warm environment where my clients feel comfortable to discuss their issues. Together we develop goals & strategies for cultivating positive changes. In couples work, we address problematic communication to change those patterns from ineffective to effective habits & behaviors."

"Much of what stands in the way of growth is our own self-judgment. We are all imperfect and our greatest hope for growth, contentment and fulfilling connection to others, comes through recognizing this truth and accepting the natural ebb and flow of emotion and circumstance. My job as your counselor is to help you figure out your goals, learn how your old habits and coping strategies no longer serve you, and help you access your inner wisdom."

Therapy provides a supportive framework to be present with and explore life's ups and downs and examine our life experiences in a new way.

Regardless of your unique process, I believe you have the inherent wisdom and resilience to be present, heal, find joy & ease, and love yourself more. My approach is collaborative, relational, direct, and peppered with humor."

"I think counseling is always useful, even when there's nothing "wrong." We get a lot of chances to go, go, go but not a lot to slow down and reflect. Usually it takes some crisis of feeling or relationship to tell us it's time. I see those crises as opportunities, doorways to deeper understanding. And because we're not fixed individuals, they come and go as we change and grow."

In order to enjoy life to its fullest, we need to be willing to acknowledge our past fully, while also making room for new experiences where we could experience ourselves and relationship in a completely different way. Often, our past experiences were conditioned by other peoples expectations or projections.

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. Northwest, 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 Northwest, Portland.
