Helping you to live a life that you value is my goal. Often in life we end up offtrack. We pay too much attention to things that don't truly matter to us... our fears, our pain, our sorrow. By themselves there is nothing wrong with them, but when they become prevailing forces in our lives, it leads to suffering. Too often we believe that we are the problem, when in truth, the problem is the problem. I believe that we can help you find your way. You can live a life where you have created your own meaning.

As a therapist, my goal is for each person I meet to feel accepted and valued. My counseling style is warm, engaging and supportive. My approach is positive and draws on my client's strengths and resources. My counseling is a blend of insight oriented therapy and practical interventions and is informed by psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral and mindfulness-based theories. I support a holistic model of health and can coordinate care with other wellness providers as desired.

My approach to therapy is relational, collaborative, and in-depth. Together, we will cultivate kindness and curiosity for your experiences, thoughts, and emotions. Self-exploration and honest feedback with an attuned listener in a safe environment can help to create neural pathways that shift blockages and interrupt unwanted cycles. Many of us struggle with behavioral patterns and attachment styles that stem from old wounds or losses, but no longer meet our needs. As you are ready, we can explore new narratives and develop tools to alleviate anxiety and depression, creating more space for acceptance, ease and joy.

Therapy is an inherently collaborative process. As such, I believe that effective therapy begins by building a foundation of trust, understanding, and compassion. I see my clients as the experts on their experience, their values, and their goals. My role is to work with individuals to identify and develop creative strategies, tools, insights, etc., to support their growth and healing. As an integrative therapist, my work is primarily based in CBT/DBT, Gestalt, Mindfulness-based therapies, and is neuropsychologically informed. My perspective is grounded in feminist and intersectional frameworks, with an emphasis on cultural humility.

Everyone needs a little help sometimes. Moods fluctuate; every-day stressors pile up; we argue with loved ones, experience trauma and loss; and constant changes demand us to adapt. Basically, life is known to throw us curveballs and some of those can be quite daunting. The good news, though, is you don't have to go through it alone. If you're looking for support and encouragement, new skills to cope, a fresh perspective, solutions, or simply just someone to talk to, I'm here for you.

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.

I strive to create a safe, respectful space in which we can work together to understand the current problems and conflicts impacting your life, and identify self-defeating patterns that keep you from reaching your full potential. We will watch to see how and when these patterns occur in the therapeutic process itself and work to trace problems back to their roots in earlier periods of your life. By gaining a deeper understanding of ourselves, we attain greater freedom to choose how we wish to live, to strengthen our relationships and find joy in life.

My name is Grace, and I am a white queer woman who works with teens and young adults to support them in learning about themselves and healing from past trauma. I specialize in working with LGBTQIA folks and anyone exploring their identity; as well as people of color, disabled folks, and others who face intersecting forms of oppression. My practice is rooted in social justice and anti-racism, and a belief that systemic oppression directly affects our mental health. In our work together, we’ll explore the ways in which systems of power and societal expectations interfere with our right to authenticity and wholeness.

Asking for help can feel daunting and may also be your window to healing. My goal is to offer a safe space for you to ask the scary questions, feel the unwanted pain, get to know your emotions and reacquaint yourself with your strength and resilience that may feel so distant. A counseling relationship can offer you reflection and insight to what is making you feel stuck. With you, I will help you discover the obstacles blocking your path, rediscover your personal assets and help you grow your skill set to work through these obstacles.

I believe that we are all beings who ultimately desire to belong and that most of our traumas are a result of somewhere down the line not being accepted in some way, shape or form. What’s left unaddressed has a funny way of continuing to pop up. Truth: Recovery is not black and white. There’s no “one size fits all” when it comes to addiction, even though you might feel that way. That’s because traditional recovery programs focus on the substance or behavior, rather than the person. Put simply, addiction is a direct response to trauma. It’s not a choice or a weakness. But it is something you can choose to walk away from.

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.
