Hi! I am so glad you are here. My approach is direct, nurturing and connective. I believe in the capacity to grow and to become our best selves. I incorporate psychodynamic talk therapy to understand the stuck points, while incorporating mindfulness and somatic work to connect the mind and body. Additionally, I acknowledge that oppression exists within marginalized communities, thus treating the individual in a social context.

My passion is helping individuals move through challenges and toward living life as their most authentic self through exploring and utilizing the personal energy and wisdom they already possess. This may include navigating significant transitions while maintaining a sense of self, finding strength and meaning in dark times, or facilitating present moment awareness and joy. Each of us has unique, complex stories which, at times, can create internal conflict, blocking us from moving forward. I work with you to accept and integrate conflictual parts of your experience and self so that you can move forward with increased self-awareness, self-appreciation and openness to experience.

I have over 30 years of clinical experience as a therapist. I have helped hundreds of individuals and couples to a successful resolution of their problems.

I listen carefully to support strengths and often teach by the questions I ask. I have in-depth training in gestalt, family systems, psychodynamic and the newer relational models of therapy. Over the years I have developed many strategies to help individuals struggling with anxiety and depression. Call me for more information.

"When you come into therapy it is a time to expand the sense of yourself. Our job is to get familiar with the values that have helped you get through difficult situations and use them now. You may be a combat veteran, mental health or law enforcement worker having family or relationship problems. You need clear and practical strategies for replacing automatic reactions with mindful responses. Feeling understood by another human being is useful for flexible problem solving and clarifying your values. The majority of my experience is working with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. PTSD will definitely get better with knowledgeable treatment."

Our lives evolve in relationship to ourselves, our partners, our families, communities and other beings (e.g. animals & the land). Healing involves allowing a healthy flow of emotion, communication, care and balance in those areas where we find ourselves stuck. I specialize in working with international and interracial couples and families; and anxiety related disorders including traumatic stress, generalized anxiety, panic attacks and social anxiety from a multicultural perspective. I am fully bilingual and multicultural and will bring to our work my life experience across cultures and my professional training.

The human experience is rich, messy and complex. With the right support, you can navigate periods of change, transitions, shakiness, and uncertainty with less fear and more ease. You can learn to use your body, senses, impulses, and intuition as invaluable tools. As a somatically oriented, Buddhist psychology-based therapist, my hope is to provide a safe, supportive context so that your innate wisdom, clarity, and self-compassion can emerge and blossom. I strongly believe in the healing power of humor, both in and out of the therapy room. You have more freedom than you think!

As a therapist I am passionate about helping people as they transition through and process difficult experiences. Times of transition or loss can call up unresolved feelings from the past. Together we can move through and process your emotions so that you don't feel so alone with what you're experiencing. If you identify as a Highly Sensitive Person, I am here to help you learn new tools to navigate the overstimulating world we live in. I am offering walk and talk/ hiking sessions near Portland if that is of interest to you.

It can feel difficult to decide if now is the right time to start therapy. Ambivalence is normal. Exploring that uncertainty can be a great place to begin. It could mean that you feel stuck, or have a sense that something is not quite right and you are interested in making it better. Symptoms of anxiety and depression are often a result of loss, life transitions, relationship stress, traumas, or identity discovery to name a few. Exploring your experience can help you understand your thoughts, feelings, and actions and lets you tap into your own wisdom and strengths, making change possible.
