"I work most often with people struggling with the course of their life: its direction, its quality, or their traveling companions. People come to therapy when the problems of living have become too painful, scattered, depressing, frightening, or paralyzing to bear. For others, reaching an emotional breaking point isn't part of deciding to seek therapy: instead, they're frustrated at not having "figured out" how to build a rich life that includes satisfying relationships, work that doesn't demean them, and a range of human experiences."

"My work with patients focuses on increasing awareness of patterns in relating to self and others. Within the context of the therapeutic relationship, we work together to explore the combination past and present factors interact to shape and sometimes limit perspective. This increased self-awareness enables patient's to respond in new ways to emotional and relational patterns. As a psychologist, I work to empower my clients by helping them to build upon their strengths and to develop an accurate sense of self, and better communicate interpersonal needs and resolve obstacles to change."

Despite our attempts to cope with these hurts, oftentimes the very solutions we seek become wounds of their own, patterns that draw us further from the sources of our suffering and leave us feeling hopeless and confused. As a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, my aim is to create a safe and confidential relationship where, in time, the hurt can be found and even transformed.

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.
