"Working together therapeutically we can create a safe and reliable space to explore and be curious about your unique experience. By making links between your past and present, we can increase your self-awareness and understanding which opens the door to create meaningful and long-lasting change. With each person, I work hard to continually hold in mind the many complex and nuanced ways our individual experiences intersect with and are shaped by biological and sociological factors such as race, culture, economics, physical and mental health, gender, sexuality, entitlement, and discrimination.

"I believe that people have a natural tendency toward growth and that therapy is one of the many ways to have a more meaningful, satisfying life. I will work with you to create the right conditions for your growth and move toward your goals. While therapy is often sought out because of discomfort, dissatisfaction, and the challenges of life, ideally it can increase your sense of belonging – in your body, mind, emotions, relationships, physical and cultural environments, and livelihood. The attitude I try to cultivate in therapy is one of openness, warmth, curiosity, and acceptance. "

"Most of my clients come to me in the midst of some sort of transition--a difficult relationship, a new job, divorce, retirement, a move, etc.--that they are unable to navigate alone. I also see many persons confronting cancer, chronic pain or a crisis of faith. When we first meet, we will explore what brings you into therapy at this time. We will create a plan together to achieve the outcome you would like best. Many times, I find that transitions involve a certain amount of loss and grief that has not yet been acknowledged. Our goal would be to fit this transition, or life condition, large or small, into your overall life journey."

Peer Relationships in Mount Scott, Portland

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents. Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.

Positive Peer Pressure in Mount Scott, Portland

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem. Peer pressure can encourage your teen's energy and motivate your teen to conform to healthy behavior. Peers can act as positive role models and demonstrate constructive social behavior. Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.

Negative Peer Pressure in Mount Scott, Portland

The need for acceptance, approval, and belonging can lead some teens or tweens to engage in risky behavior in order to fit in with a group-contrasting values they may otherwise reject.
