I use an eclectic approach to address trauma in therapy and draw from family of origin theory, narrative therapy, attachment theory, eye movement therapy (such as Accelerated Resolution Therapy), as well as CBT+DBT.
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.

My background is in Family Structural Therapy, which places value on and examines an individual’s relationships, both past and present.
Helping others discover peace, connection, and confidence in the face of turmoil has long been a passion of mine. I believe everyone is capable of growth and healing if they are provided sufficient encouragement, support, and effective strategies. My therapeutic style is conversational and relaxed. I encourage clients to identify and communicate their unique needs and concerns in order to improve interpersonal relationships, manage bothersome emotions or behaviors, and develop healthier family connections. No matter their goal, I strongly believe in the client’s right to decide the focus of therapy.

I am a professional counselor with over 12 years of experience providing evidence- based family , couple, and individual therapy in Portland.
What if the life with our partner could be as exciting as it was when you first got together? Has your relationship been shaky? What is your relationship to yourself? What do you tell yourself when having difficult times? Are you feeling stuck? Are you and your partner arguing all the time and just can’t get on the same page? Or maybe you aren’t really in that much conflict, but you don’t feel close or connected, and have been drifting apart. Yes, when relationships are difficult, many couples wonder.

It is not uncommon to feel lost at different points in life. Life can be complicated: Family dynamics, career fulfillment, managing multiple responsibilities, understanding your partner, overwhelmed from transitions, making sense of the past. I believe that together we can process your experiences which can lead to a meaningful life and personal growth. It's a huge step attending therapy and I welcome you into this space with sensitivity and compassion. I am a Latinx therapist dedicated to working with adults. I am licensed in Oregon (T1596) and California (111592).

I have significant experience supporting people of color, complex family systems, and individuals who have experienced trauma.
Therapy can provide a space where you can reflect and unpack the multitudes of you. Often, we feel there is a part of ourselves that isn’t ok and isn’t good enough. Or there is a part of us that has been deeply injured. These parts are sometimes packed away, denied, or rejected, and can be obstacles to our well-being. It is my belief that without accessing our entire selves, we stay limited in the richness of what we can experience, what we can bring into our lives, and how openly we connect with others. The aim of my work is total acceptance, and in doing so, walking with you towards healing and integrating your whole self.

I am trauma-informed and draw from family systems, narrative, emotion-focused, internal family systems, and social justice theories.
I specialize in working with couples from all walks of life, as well as families in which one member is exploring their gender identity or actively transitioning. I understand that gender exploration and transition can create unique challenges within families; it can bring out family dynamics that are painful and difficult to navigate without help. I am here to support you with that. Regarding couples, it's not unusual to experience challenges in your relationship as you face the challenges of daily living. I am here to help you improve communication, increase understanding, and find your way back to each other.

My specialties include addiction and recovery, relationship dynamics (couples, poly, open, kink), LGBTQIAA identity, family of origin, SPMI, sex work, and healing from trauma.
I believe the most important parts of therapy are trust and collaboration. You'll know immediately if the therapist is right for you. If you don't feel it, keep looking. There's a lot of us therapists out here and your time and self-work are important! Additionally, at our most vulnerable times in life, we need someone who will hold a safe space for us to approach our edges - the parts of us we tend to avoid or neglect. Addressing our 'issues' is intensely brave and can also be terrifying! I commend you for embarking on this journey and invite you to call me if my words resonate with your needs.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
