I love my work as a couples' counselor. I'm a Gottman Seven Principles Program Educator. I have over 20 years experience doing individual and couples therapy, and 15 years in private practice. I help couples improve communication, rekindle intimacy and improve awareness of patterns which may result in defensiveness, or feeling "not heard" by your partner. In individual therapy, I create a warm environment where my clients feel comfortable to discuss their issues. Together we develop goals & strategies for cultivating positive changes. In couples work, we address problematic communication to change those patterns from ineffective to effective habits & behaviors.

Life can be hard and many of us feel out of control or alone. I believe we are meant to have connections with others in order to create bonds that provide the framework of how we interpret the world around us as well as our own sense of self. When crisis and conflict occur, and these relationships are challenged, life can seem impossible-but this is where interpersonal growth can occur. No matter what the issue, finding the desire and courage to overcome these challenges is a personal and important decision. Choosing the therapist who is the right fit for you is the next step.

My intention for you is to gently but dynamically create opportunities for growth and healing through flexible and creative alternatives to break through old patterns. I like to collaborate with motivated clients who are willing to work to change their lives. My goal is to help you discover your own solutions to your problems and concerns in an environment that is welcoming, empathetic and non-judgmental. I do that by carefully attending to your thoughts and feelings. Although I will offer specific "interventions" I believe that change occurs during therapy when there is strong motivation combined with the quality of our connection.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Portland, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.

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
