"Making your way to counseling is a different process for each client. Some clients arrive in counseling in the midst of crisis, others arrive after exhausting other sources of support and still others utilize counseling as a continuous self-awareness/self-improvement tool. Regardless of the path that brought you to this point, I welcome you."

"The relationship is everything. We aren't ourselves when we don't feel comfortable with someone. I understand this, and so my work centers on establishing a working relationship that fosters collaboration and mutual understanding. My motto is: "You are the expert on you." So I rely on you to help me understand your values and approach to life. When I have a sense of who you are (and of us as a team) we get to embark on identifying the patterns and pitfalls, so as to increase awareness and focus on making meaningful changes that are right for you."

Most of my clients have experienced a betrayal of trust either by loved ones such as a parent, partner, or friend, or an institution such as their university or employer. I specialize in helping survivors to overcome feelings of shame and self-criticism that are actually adaptive responses to betrayal trauma, but that are no longer serving them. In learning to let go of shame and self-criticism, a new way of living becomes possible that is richer, more joyful, and more connected than was previously possible. "

Peer Relationships in Southwest, 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 Southwest, 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 Southwest, 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.
