*TELEHEALTH OFFERED* Depression, anxiety, and anger can easily overwhelm us when we feel stuck between accepting our problems and changing them. I provide solution-focused, cognitive and behavioral approaches to help clients find the balance between these two seemingly opposing realities. I believe people are already doing the best they can, and that we all need extra support at times to get “unstuck.” I view my clients as the experts in their own lives; my role is to collaborate with them to find more effective solutions to their problems. I will work with you to create a clear path towards creating the life you want to live.

Whether it be a major change in their family dynamic or a career shift, transitions may be challenging and these may warrant additional support. As a counselor who uses a life coaching approach, I look forward to supporting individuals who want to see results, be inspired to go further distances and reclaim their internal joy.

I believe that each individual has their own unique strengths and I tailor therapeutic services to build upon these gifts and differences. I find several factors contribute to life challenges and stress including family history, social situations and internal thoughts and emotions. As a therapist, my goal is to help you identify these factors and find the tools that work for you.

Everyone goes through challenges situations in life and while you my have successfully navigated through other difficulties you've faced, there's nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it, in fact, therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand, and that is something to be admired. If you struggle with anxiety, depression, marital/relational difficulties and are committed to making long lasting changes in your life by acquiring the long-lasting benefits and tools you need to avoid triggers, re-direct damaging patterns, and overcome those challenges-take the first step.

Difficult life experiences can leave us feeling stuck, anxious, and often angry with ourselves and others. How often do you find yourself asking, why am I reacting this way, or why can’t I stay more in control of my emotions? You want to understand why life is being so challenging for you, and also improve your relationships. In addition you would like to increase your tolerance for stressful situations. You’ve lost friends or have strained relationships. Therefore it’s difficult for you to trust others and you have hurt loved ones by pushing them away or by being too dependent on them.

I work with individuals experiencing stress/anxiety/trauma; depression; childhood and relationship issues; life transitions - divorce, the death of someone important, illness, and transitions of midlife or becoming an elder; ADHD.

Knowing that it is usually an experience of pain or frustration that prompts people to seek counseling, my goal is to provide a safe place for you to effectively move through it. Often that pain comes from unmet needs, harmful experiences, or coping systems that no longer serve you. I want to work with you, to offer reflection, understanding, information, and new windows to help you experience relief and a sense of well being. Approaches include insight oriented talk therapy, mindfulness, EMDR, and art therapy and are chosen on what would be most appropriate to your individual goals.

Through exploration of different life themes we will work together to create the life that you have always envisioned.

***I am not currently able to accept new clients*** The idea of going to therapy often arises when our standard coping strategies and problem-solving efforts don't seem to be doing the trick. We sense that we need to take a closer look at what's going on. My view is that when therapy works, it is because it provides the right context for this exploration - one which helps us get perspective on unhelpful patterns, and leads to something new.

I am a clinical psychologist, licensed since 1986. My husband and I moved to Portland recently, and are enjoying the energy and cultural richness of the city. I enjoy traveling, yoga, jogging, and of course visiting our grandchildren. I particularly enjoy working with people who feel "stuck" and are interested in developing insight into the roots of the issues which keep them from moving forward in their lives; however, I appreciate the unique needs of each individual and am flexible in meeting their needs.

You're here because you're hurting. You're not alone. Past trauma, day-to-day struggles, and stress in interpersonal relationships can cause extreme mental and physical exhaustion and pain. Therapy is a safe space to feel seen and heard, and to explore and challenge old patterns and beliefs that may be keeping you stuck. It is possible to find renewed energy and capacity for joy in your daily life again.

Sometimes in life we have to face rough situations. Whether it's peer stress, transitions, negative interactions, poor choices, or the growing pains of life. I work with many people who have experienced abuse, neglect, and trauma. Many of these people seek a more positive life and look for growth. Through collaboration I assist individuals, and families in learning how to cope, and grow from pain and suffering. I strive to work with people and their families in facilitating growth towards more positive interactions, and a positive outlook on life.

What type of Portland mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Portland?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
