My training has allowed me to assimilate multiple treatment modalities, including psychodynamic, humanistic, experiential, cognitive and behavioral techniques.
A person's trajectory in life can be offset by a history of stress, strain and compromises. Therapy can re-orient a person to their true needs, allowing them to become more effective in many aspects of their lives: at work, home, and in relationships. I offer a collaborative, safe, and respectful environment where conversations unfold at their own pace. It is important that a person trusts the therapist who they work with and is able to discuss their problems openly. The right "fit" between therapist and patient can be determined best after an initial consultation.

Clear, calm and non-judgmental awareness of thoughts, emotions and physical presence are the foundations of a mindful approach to healing. As a clinician, I place great emphasis on creating a trusting environment where the mindful exploration of one's life, both today and in the past, can take place with ease and comfort and so we can work together to uncover the places where life seems stuck and unfulfilling or downright painful. Through the skillful means of multiple therapeutic tools, we will untangle your old habit patterns - whether they be old stories, emotional baggage, repetitive relational interactions or spiritual crisis.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Portland, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
