Welcome, and thank you for visiting my site!
We all face challenges in life. These challenges can include anything from the everyday stressors of work, finances, and relationships to the trauma of abuse or assault. No matter how large or small the challenges may appear, I believe that our suffering is directly related to our inner worlds, where we experience doubt, fear, guilt, anxiety, grief, anger, and hopelessness.
Believe it or not, this is actually very good news, because unlike so many external events, our inner worlds can be explored, understood, and managed. By taking the time to understand our thoughts, feelings, and choices; we may begin to quiet the past and change how we meet the future. This process can reduce suffering and symptoms, as well as increase our positive potentials in life.
Psychotherapy is one of the most effective and efficient ways to facilitate personal growth and sustainable life change, as long as we remain open and committed to the therapy process. Therapy can be a challenging process at times, but in return, therapy offers the possibility of real and lasting change, which is my goal with every client. I strive to help my clients feel better, enjoy life, practice mindful awareness, develop satisfying relationships, and find personal success.
This website provides an overview of my therapy style and areas of expertise, as well as my professional background. You will also find important information about confidentiality, what to expect in the beginning of therapy, my office location, and the forms you will need to start therapy. Other topics include my consultation services, articles and presentations with which I have been involved, and links to other websites on therapy, self-care, and topics of interest. A new feature on the site is a BLOG where I share reflections and insights based on my work. Take a look around, and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
I work as a Licensed Psychologist in Portland, Oregon. If you are interested in starting therapy, I should mention that I am a preferred provider with BlueCross BlueShield and a participating provider with Aetna, and I may accept other insurance as an out-of-network provider. Clients experiencing financial hardship are invited to raise their financial concerns so that we can discuss payment options. If you would like more information on my fees or assistance in navigating your insurance benefits, please call me. I'll be glad to help.
Thank you for your interest!
