I am passionate about supporting men and women of all ages, all orientations, alone or partnered, towards creating new and practical maps towards a vibrant and nourishing erotic connection with themselves and the world.
COVID-19 - You are not alone. Feelings of isolation may be intensified. Rather than being an obstacle, our bodies and our sensual nature can be integral to personal and spiritual liberation. My work is grounded, respectful and authentic. In confidential, online sessions, men gain mastery of how to generate, contain and transform sexual energy and cultivate deep presence. Women remember how to heal and reclaim their sexual power and become radiant in their ability to be love. Profound levels of respect and joy emerge within couples. As a result, we learn to relax deeply and access our life potential in a profound and powerful way.

I also enjoy working with women in the postpartum period and have completed extensive training to help address this time of great transition.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Holistic Nutritionist. With my background in both disciplines, I believe strongly in looking at both the physical and mental factors that might be impacting a person's life. I worked for over ten years in community mental health settings helping kids and their families address divorce, ADHD, anxiety, stress, life- balance, depression, parenting, behavioral issues and attachment. I feel the therapy room should be a safe, non-judgmental place to explore everything that is impacting your life.

I work with adult women and men in all stages and walks of life, of all views, all faiths, and all ages.
Thank you for considering my services. Life can hurt. Set-backs, emotional pain, social awkwardness, fear of anger, shame or rejection can block that which we desire most-loving nurturing relationships, affirmation from others, and self-valuing. I have been helping individuals and couples better achieve those desires for 40+ years. I bring a long history of a variety of skills to a mutually created process.

My passion is to work with BIPOC women and families surrounding issues involving disabilities, trauma, relationship struggles, blended families, and the military. It is important for us to discuss values that you may hold closely so we can work toward aligning those values with your therapeutic goals. I want to support your healing process and help you tap into your inner self. I will challenge you and encourage you to dig deep during our time together. I don’t think that therapy has to be serious all the time; I believe that therapy is something where you should laugh, cry, yell, and feel all of the feelings!

Though I practice as a generalist, I specialize in working with college/graduate students as well as women who are experiencing difficulties related to pregnancy and the postpartum period.
I am a licensed psychologist working with adults in individual therapy. I believe that developing a deeper understanding about our experiences within the context of a supportive, secure therapeutic relationship can lead to the development of more meaningful and satisfying lives and relationships. I provide psychoanalytic psychotherapy, where the focus is not just on alleviating symptoms, but on understanding and working through beliefs, feelings, fears, and patterns that operate out of awareness and impact current difficulties. I find that meeting at least once a week helps us address issues in-depth and most effectively.

What type of Southwest, 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 Southwest, 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.
