"I enjoy working with people who seek both short term solution-focused therapy and those who choose to pursue longer term goals of personality change in the context of depth psychology. There are truly many paths to achieving significant relief from symptoms of loss, depression, and anxiety or a change in one's personal situation. I view the therapeutic journey as Herodotus understood the original meaning of the word history (historous): not as a noun (i.e. a fixed thing) but a verb: literally to go and find out for one's self."

"I bring together somatically-based approaches to therapy that include a deep understanding and methodology for working with core material and resolving trauma: Hakomi is a form of guided self-study that relies on the power of present emotional and somatic experience to access and study core material: the memories, images, beliefs, and emotional dispositions that shape how we experience ourselves in the world. Hakomi provides a method for becoming conscious of and exploring core material, as well as for integrating new, more nourishing experiences."

I've witnessed profound impacts in my work with people, where shame becomes self acceptance and overwhelm becomes relief and ease. I welcome everyone who wants to work with me, and especially welcome those who may not have felt comfortable in therapy before, possibly due to experiencing marginality, societal oppression, or being shy.

Even seeking the help of a therapist can be difficult because of the way that stress interfers with self trust or confidence.

"Hello there. I have been in practice providing psychotherapy to adults and adolescents since 1994. Some clients see me briefly for focused concerns such as life transitions or work/school issues. Others who seek my help have been struggling with longer term depression/anxiety, effects of past trauma, or problematic relationship patterns, for many years. In either case I work from a psychoanalytic framework, using the power of the here and now therapy relationship to explore how peoples' unconscious thoughts color their experience of themselves and others. Over time this work often leads to deep, lasting life changes."

Symptoms of anxiety and depression are often what prompt people to enter therapy.

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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Portland are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Portland you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Portland and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Portland or family therapy in Portland.
