Intimacy, creativity, and feelings are essential aspects of nourishment when we are experiencing troubling times in our lives. The symptoms we experience such as depression, anxiety, or relationship challenges are often directing our attention to deeper meaning and understanding of ourselves. In my work with individuals and couples, we are often engaged in relationship and intimacy concerns and exploring ways to heal and experience self-love and self-trust. We all have survival, coping, and healing abilities that can help us grow and thrive under many circumstances. Sometimes assistance is needed to help these abilities develop.

I believe there comes a time in most people's lives when it's helpful to have a supportive person to guide them through challenges they may be experiencing. It takes strength and courage to decide to begin therapy. If this is something you are considering for your child then you should be commended! As a Certified Synergetic Play Therapist, I engaged in Synergetic Play Therapy (TM), "a research-informed model of play therapy blending the therapeutic power of play with nervous system regulation, interpersonal neurobiology, physics, attachment, mindfulness, and therapist authenticity." - Lisa Dion, creator of Synergetic Play Therapy

If navigating your personal and/or professional roles involved putting your challenges "on mute", you may at some point sense how unspoken stress will find its way to be seen. Is your physical body overwhelmed with unresolved psychological distress ? If it doesn't feel right that exhaustion/emotional disconnection from who/what you care about become your "normal", your individualized counseling can be your "mini retreat"- a venue to shift away from unhelpful vicious cycles, address origins of imbalance, integrate your strengths and move towards aliveness and true presence.

**Currently focusing on web-based video sessions during Covid-19 issues - let's all be safe** We, as humans, create long-lasting patterns of beliefs and actions to help cope with life’s difficulties. However, as time passes, these deeply rooted patterns can cause growing pains. They also, unfortunately, become shadowed and intertwined in our selves. Like a tree’s thick roots, they need to be carefully excavated, nurtured, and soothed before they can be changed. My goal is to help you to see the internal struggle with your patterns and ease the pain around them so you can fill your day with joy and happiness.

*Accepting New Clients* I help my clients recognize and work through their traumas, patterns, and blocks. They learn that deep within there is a truth that is yearning for recognition. At some level they are aware that this truth maps the path and purpose of their lives. We'll work together to find new paths of success and personal power. I reflect to them the wisdom and talents they hold within so that they may begin to own that identity and build confidence in becoming who they really are. I work from a framework that is Archetypal, Jungian, Somatic, Shamanic, Transpersonal, Holistic, Spiritual, and Vibrational/Energetic.

Despite what Instagram, TikTok, or an opinionated in-law may have us believe, none of us are born knowing how to parent, and many of us are actively working on changing intergenerational patterns in our own families in order to better support the growth and development of our children, in essence, reparenting ourselves. This process is a difficult one, and not meant to be done in isolation. Together we can look at how you were parented, how you want to parent, and how to bridge any gaps in between.

Hi, I’m Maddie. Licensed therapist, career counselor, and your very own personal hype-man as you navigate big transitions and changes in your life. As someone with a background in trauma informed care, I know the concept of exploring purpose, navigating transition, and being motivated for change can feel incredibly scary, overwhelming, and outright impossible at times. Together, we will take the necessary steps to guide you through self-reflection, identify clear, tangible goals, and create a plan for your next steps that feel manageable and purposeful. You deserve a life that is ALL the things, but most of all reflective of you.

I am also kink/BDSM affirming and poly/ethical non-monogamy affirming.

The decision to enter into therapy can be scary, but can also be life changing. Deciding to take action after the thought occurs is possibly the most difficult and courageous thing a person can do. By reading this, you are already taking one step toward putting your thoughts into action. At this point, it is important to find a therapist who can meet your specific needs and someone you feel comfortable with.

How can I find a therapist in Portland?

Search for nearby therapists or counselors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or zip code; or a provider’s name into the search bar. From there, you can filter providers by the issues they treat, cost, insurance, gender, and other factors to find providers who are well-suited to your needs. To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

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.

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.

What type of therapist is right for me?

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.

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 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.

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.
