Welcome to my practice! The goal of my work is to assist you in better understanding aspects of yourself in a safe and supportive environment. I work from a whole person relational approach, which means that I believe our early relationships, and our core thoughts and behaviors influence our current relationships and functioning. I believe that therapy can lead to powerful change and shifts that will help you take advantage of in the words of Mary Oliver “your one wild and precious life.”

I help Oregonians explore their strengths, become more “mindful,” improve their relationships, make career and life transitions, and heal from attachment wounds. Are you looking to process trauma and hardship from involvement with a controlling church, cult, multi-level marketing company (pyramid scheme), or harmful spiritual environment? This website doesn't offer boxes for me to identify as non-religious, and perhaps you are explicitly seeking a secular therapist to discuss lingering shame, relationship cut-offs, and identity confusion. I also specialize in helping people adjust to disabilities such as chronic illness.

I work to help people find greater meaning, clarity and purpose - especially at important crossroads of change. Past conceptions of self can be altered through divorce, relocation, loss, illness, and new opportunities for growth can be embraced. Symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma can lower motivation and activate old ways that no longer serve the hopes of today. I facilitate the process of navigating change and support you to find greater ease, confidence, and meaning from living an authentic you.

I help people who feel isolated and overwhelmed by past trauma or current circumstances learn to find ease and resilience. The pain of our current state of social isolation exacerbates existing trauma, PTSD and chronic stress; robbing people of their sense of safety, disrupting sleep and creating chronic physical and emotional pain. My clients report that our work together improves their ability to calm and settle their bodies and minds, and increases their access to the authentic joy, creativity and playfulness that has been buried under layers of overwhelm, anxiety, trauma or stress.

Leadership Skills, Performance Enhancement and Life Coaching. I am confident in the ability of the individual to change. We all face many difficult challenges in life, but these can become opportunities for growth and personal development. Most of us have never really learned the optimal skills and strategies to deal with these challenges. After 30 years working with individuals from a great variety of economic, educational and cultural backgrounds, I have found that identifying and letting go of our old, unproductive coping strategies, and replacing them with new ways of engaging with the world, allows us to live in a more rewarding and productive fashion.
