Most of us are trying to avoid our pain, in spite of the fact that it is an inevitable and crucial part of the human experience. In fact, we are never so fully human as when we surrender to the reality of our wounds. Only when we stay with our pain can we hope to learn what it has to teach us in the hopes of ultimately transforming it into something meaningful and life-giving that may just propel us into the life we've always wanted. But it is hard learning how to integrate our wounds. I will help you.

We will explore this by looking at dreams and by learning to unlock the depths of your unconscious mind and the pure gold of wisdom that inhabits your psyche. I studied at the Pacifica Graduate Institute. This program is unique in that it provides a depth psychology approach to therapy. In other words the soul is included in 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. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Portland

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.
