I help people in the greater Portland area align body, mind, and emotions in their daily lives. I am trauma-trained, take a Health at Every Size approach to food and weight issues, and encourage people to work with their body and emotions as allies (rather than enemies) on their journey towards growth and healing. I work with adults only (i.e. people no longer living with or financially dependent upon their parents), but my colleague Valentina Pishchanskaya-Cayanan, LMFT (whose profile you can also find here on Psychology Today's therapist finder) works with ages 12 and up.

Our greatest fears and tragedies can become sources of strength and wisdom. Short-term work focuses on stabilizing the current crisis and problem-solving. Longer-term work examines patterns that keep you stuck and explores options for growth. Learn to navigate old situations in new ways that align with your values and enhance self-esteem.

I have worked 2 years in a university counseling center, 4 years in a substance abuse treatment setting, 5 years in an eating disorder treatment setting, and over a decade in private practice with people working through a myriad of transitions and challenges.
