I have been an LMFT since 1993. During that time I've had both education and experience with many of the issues we encounter as we pass through our lives. Couples, individuals and teens are the majority of my practice. We work on relationship problems, divorce and co-parenting, anxiety and depression and parent-child problems. I also have training and experience working with clients with sexual concerns and Active Duty Military, families and Veterans. I am currently accepting telephonic and video clients in Oregon. Telehealth has been extensively researched and found to have similar positive results as face-to-face.

Hello-I look forward to working with you! My goal is to support you in finding balance in your life, work through challenging past, present, and future situations, and invite empowerment through self-compassion and learning skills that feel comfortable and easily accessible. I specialize in trauma, and use trauma-specific interventions to promote healing and safety. Life can feel complicated, stressful, and overwhelming. My goal is to explore the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that may contribute to these stressors while also highlighting your strengths through increased self-awareness and understanding of mind-body connection.

*PRACTICE CLOSED TO NEW CLIENTS* When you are overwhelmed with life experiences moving forward can be a huge challenge. If you are experiencing the effects of stress, trauma, abuse, shame, or grief it can feel as if things will never change. My goal is to develop a connection with you through which you can learn to develop trust, insight and a deeper understanding of yourself. This means we work as a creative team; at times I will support your innate intelligence to identify and create solutions and at other times I may use what you have shared with me and my own intuition to offer advice, share observations and make suggestions.

Are you looking to increase connection, joy, positive moods, and strengthen healthy relationship with yourself and others? I specialize in a Mindfulness and Somatic/body based modality called Internal Family Systems (IFS). IFS allows us to gently and safely reprocess old wounds, work on what is most important right now in your life, and help you return to your core natural state of connection, purpose and authenticity. It is deeper than traditional 'talk therapy', as it gets to the root of trauma and attachment wounding, often based in childhood difficulties that result in patterns of anxiety, depression, grief, and dissociation.

My therapeutic work focuses on understanding your inner world to build a trusting relationship. Creating a safe and nonjudgemental environment for you is my goal. During the therapy process I aim to define problem areas to help you, your marriage, or your child overcome obstacles pertaining to emotional issues or behavioral issues. I work with kids who experience issues with divorce, school, peers, learning, discipline, and trauma. When working with couples, I use a specific scientific method aimed at addressing particular troubled areas in the relationship from communication issues and conflict to affairs.

My approach to counseling begins with developing a relationship with clients so I can understand what has brought them to therapy. It's important to look at situations within the larger context of our lives--past and present; family; and the beliefs and attitudes that shape personal experience. Being healthy in all areas--mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual--allows us to live fully, but healing happens on many levels and can look very different from one person to the next. I recognize it takes time to build a relationship and enough trust to bring someone new into your life

I am currently not accepting new clients. I see children 8 and under who are having behavioral or emotional issues at school or home or just need some extra support. I use a very interactive approach to help my clients appreciate their strengths and then work with both the child and parent in a collaborative way to develop successful strategies. Therapy sessions can include play therapy in my large therapy room, learning new coping skills and spending time with my therapy dog, Sally. Parents are given the opportunity to learn new parenting skills to help their child's progress.

All of us experience some confusion, anxiety, sadness, or conflict periodically, but if daily life becomes characterized by those feelings, something about life is out of balance. Do you feel stuck in a relationship or job, or troubled with negative, or fearful thoughts that won't go away? Sometimes we can loose a sense of hopefulness and pleasure about life. Perhaps we experienced a recent or far distant loss that left us floundering in sadness and grief. Maybe we have become weary searching for spiritual fulfillment, yet finding most ideas of a higher power to be disheartening or unbelievable.

Mindful, gentle, supportive, intuitive. You may be struggling with anxiety, depression, and frustration or find yourself turning to unhealthy behaviors for relief and escape from uncomfortable feelings. You may also be struggling to be free of the devestating effects of past trauma. Or you may have a knowing that there is a freer, stronger, and more joyful you that has just seemed to remain out of reach, despite your good efforts. Through mindfulness attention and somaticwareness, that which was previously "in the way" becomes our doorway to healing, clarity, peace, joy, and the ability to realize our personal and life goals.

I thoroughly enjoy my work with all of my clients, but especially my work with families and couples. My approach is relational, meaning I help clients understand "what happened" that is causing distress, rather than "what's wrong with you", as my clients have so often heard from other professionals. My therapy is trauma informed, even if trauma is not the presenting concern. I hold deep respect for all clients. The key to successful therapy is the therapeutic relationship, so this is my priority. I also provide both compassion and accountability for therapeutic goals.

I believe that therapy is a collaborative process in which deep, lasting, positive changes emerge. Anxiety, low self esteem, trauma, eating disorders, relationship problems, and life transitions can prevent you from living a full life. I can help you increase your self confidence, overcome the effects of trauma, resolve past hurts and conflicts, develop confidence in yourself as a good friend and loving partner, change old patterns, and balance career and personal choices. I provide an atmosphere of acceptance and curiosity where hurts and conflicts are released, and confidence, insight, trust, and wisdom are strengthened.

I am acutely aware of how many people are suffering deeply now – people who are strong, intelligent, and creative, and yet find themselves struggling within their lives and disbelieving in themselves. Many of our psychological and emotional problems have been worsened over time by systemic and political practices, policies and institutions which also affect us spiritually. Because these systems aren’t self-aware, they don’t change quickly, and since they are part of the cause of our problems, they can’t help us heal. I listen to understand how to heal.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
