Whether you have been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, PTSD, Bipolar Disorder, disorder eating behaviors, co-occurring substance use, are experiencing depression or anxiety, together we will find the best treatment approach to address your specific goals.
*Currently not accepting new clients* Do any of these comments sound familiar? “You’re too emotional.” “You’re so dramatic.” “Why can’t you just let it go?” “You’re so sensitive!” Do you struggle to cope without going to extremes? Too many people haven’t been taught how to cope with the struggles of life in healthy, effective ways and instead find any possible way to feel better, as quickly as possible. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) in particular can help you learn these vital skills to begin building the life you choose. If you’re tired of being stuck in suffering and emotional pain, I’d like to help you find your way through.

I was at the DBT Clinic Portland, treating patients with Borderline Personality Disorder, but I specialize in psychodynamic/Jungian/Adlerian therapy.
Apathetic? Sad? Worried? Angry? Restless? Defeated? Insecure? Bitter? Slow? Confused? With the state of the world, mental health is at an all-time low and we are all experiencing collective trauma. I take climate, pandemic, economic, political, societal, technological and cultural problems into account, on top of personal issues. My goal has always been to help those with trauma, personality disorders, depression and anxiety by diving into the unconscious and creating self-awareness. As a woman of color, I also specialize in serving and empowering the BIPOC community, immigrants and females.

I am passionate about supporting people as they grow into their best selves, learn to be seen for who they are rather than what they look like, and strive to accept imperfections and pain with greater self-compassion. I treat eating disorders (binge eating, bulimia, anorexia, exercise addiction), anxiety, depression, traits of borderline personality, interpersonal trauma, and relationship problems in families and couples. I believe that a collaborative and accepting relationship is needed for people to change and heal.

You've finally decided: you're tired of repeating the patterns that leave you feeling stuck, frustrated and disconnected. Sure - you've done well for yourself in a lot of ways. But then something happened that shook it all up. Maybe it was having a kid. Maybe it was a divorce...or a second divorce. Or maybe you just woke up one day with the realization that you're not showing up as who you want to be in the world, and you don't have endless time in front of you to figure it all out anymore. Wherever you're at right now, you know you're not going to get where you want to be by doing the same old shit you've always done.

"At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want" Lao Tzu Power comes from being open to exploring your inner strength as a means of gaining insight and knowledge. I strive to provide a safe, nonjudgmental, compassionate space for self-discovery. Through the Empowerment Model I use an eclectic, client centered, and strength based approach to finding healing and growth in the midst of challenges. By exploring the origin of symptoms and how they influence thoughts and behaviors we can overcome obstacles to feeling genuine health and wellness.

I firmly believe that growth has two paths. To truly flourish, one must balance a desire for change with a true willingness to accept oneselve for who you are. A treatment that embraces this idea is Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and it's the core philosophy I use with my patients every day. In treatment, DBT concepts focus on changing things that are getting in the way of living the life you want, while accepting yourself unconditionally. The focus is to develop a life worth living. My program offers a full finality DBT which includes individual therapy, group skills training, and phone consultation.

Psychotherapy is not just a matter of skills and techniques. Healing occurs when, in a safe environment, you can speak and hear your own voice, tell your own story, and find someone really listening to you. When you feel heard, new insights can emerge. Anxiety, depression, worry, or conflicts constrict your experience and personal relationships. A therapeutic relationship can provide an opportunity to be accompanied as you express your feelings, thoughts, and concerns. You become more open, able to make new choices. Your more authentic self can emerge as your inner landscape changes. I am interested in hearing and seeing you, as you are.

"What are you?" was a question I quickly became accustomed to growing up in the Pacific Northwest. With roots in Chamoru, Irish and Armenian heritage, there is no box for me to check. This question has been a lifelong journey in understanding who I am in the context of others, and more importantly how I define myself. I hope to work with others who are embarking on their own cultural journey and are seeking deeper answers to questions about themselves.

Redmond Reams, Ph.D., provides psychotherapy based on your concerns, whether you deal with anxiety, depression, past trauma, relationship issues, identity concerns, or other matters. When you start counseling, you decide if you feel that Dr. Reams emotionally understands the issues important to you. As therapy unfolds, we both assess the situations you find particularly difficult and react to stronger than you might expect. Together we figure out how you can use the basis of these reactions to make desirable changes.

Seeking the assistance of a professional counselor is an important decision. Reaching out for help can be difficult, but once the decision has been made, most people, in my experience, find the outcome to be extremely rewarding. Stress, relationship difficulties, and career disenchantment are just a few of the normal issues that anyone may encounter over the course of one's life. Seeking an experienced and skilled counselor to help deal with any of these concerns is a demonstration of personal strength and healthy coping.

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is characterized by pervasive instability in moods, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and behavior. This instability often disrupts family and work life, long-term planning, and an individual's sense of identity.
