I love my work as a couples' counselor. I'm a Gottman Seven Principles Program Educator. I have over 20 years experience doing individual and couples therapy, and 15 years in private practice. I help couples improve communication, rekindle intimacy and improve awareness of patterns which may result in defensiveness, or feeling "not heard" by your partner. In individual therapy, I create a warm environment where my clients feel comfortable to discuss their issues. Together we develop goals & strategies for cultivating positive changes. In couples work, we address problematic communication to change those patterns from ineffective to effective habits & behaviors.

I strive to create a safe, respectful space in which we can work together to understand the current problems and conflicts impacting your life, and identify self-defeating patterns that keep you from reaching your full potential. We will watch to see how and when these patterns occur in the therapeutic process itself and work to trace problems back to their roots in earlier periods of your life. By gaining a deeper understanding of ourselves, we attain greater freedom to choose how we wish to live, to strengthen our relationships and find joy in life.

I approach my clients with interest and compassion, creating a relationship that fosters deeper self-awareness, personal effectiveness, and meaningful change. The relationship developed in psychotherapy is an important resource, because it offers an opportunity to directly examine and explore these issues. I work with you to explore how your family history, life experience, and current stressors contribute to the issues that bring you to therapy. For people confronting infertility and other medical issues, I offer support with decision-making, stress reduction, and working through feelings of loss. Third-Party Reproduction services are also available, including donor evaluations and recipient consultations.

I think counseling is always useful, even when there's nothing "wrong." We get a lot of chances to go, go, go but not a lot to slow down and reflect. Usually it takes some crisis of feeling or relationship to tell us it's time. I see those crises as opportunities, doorways to deeper understanding. And because we're not fixed individuals, they come and go as we change and grow.

I have had the privilege of witnessing people undergo the slow, extremely subtle and remarkable journey of healing and self-transformation. This process of psychological growth is astoundingly complex, multilayered, circular and even mysteriously numinous in its unfolding. My philosophy as a therapist is primarily on core transformation rather than merely symptom management and needless to say, I strongly believe in the centrality of the therapeutic relationship as a significant healing agent. Moving towards our wholeness necessitates the courage to first move into the wounded parts that we all have as members of the human species.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Northwest, 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.
