"You want things in your life to change, and you want them to change fast. I approach therapy from a practical perspective: part of our work together will be to help you determine what changes you want to make, and get started with some practical actions (yes, homework!). You can expect to see results fairly quickly, usually after 2 or 3 sessions. As we work together over 8-10 sessions, more deep-seated patterns may emerge, and you can decide to what extent you want to do this deeper change work."

"My values as a psychologist are to provide non-judgmental, empathic, and patient centered care, while emphasizing a therapeutic relationship and environment founded on personal growth, openness, and honesty. I use an integrated approach to therapy to best fit the unique needs of each client. I often work from a psychodynamic-relational stance, using the therapeutic relationship as a tool to increase my client’s awareness of interactions between self, others, and the world to improve decision-making and enhance life satisfaction. I incorporate mindfulness-based techniques to promote insight with practical, here-and-now interventions."

I work with people dealing with difficulties in relationships and within themselves, coping with strong emotions of fear, sadness, or anger. I meet people experiencing doubts about their identity, struggling to fulfill themselves, or having hard time coping with losses and transitions, such as immigration, divorce, retirement, loss of loved ones, and other changes that life brings about. I work with individuals as well as couples that face crises or want to improve and deepen their relationships."

"In most cases, our deepest wounds have relational origins. 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.

I also do long-term insight-oriented work; identifying patterns of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors which reflect unconscious conflict and create barriers in relationships with oneself and others. Symptoms of anxiety and depression are often what prompt people to enter therapy. Some people want to learn tools and behaviors to alleviate symptomology; while others continue with therapy, after symptom reduction, and explore internal themes from their family-of-origin and how they are impacting their relationships today.

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.
