We ALL face challenges throughout our lives. These challenges can include anything from the everyday stressors of work, finances, and relationships to the trauma of abuse, assault, health issues, or loss. No matter how large or small our challenges may appear, I believe that our suffering is more directly related to our inner worlds, where we experience doubt, fear, guilt, anxiety, grief, anger, and hopelessness.

Believe it or not, this is actually 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, as long as we remain open and committed to the therapy process. Therapy can be challenging at times, but in return, it 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 meaningful relationships, and find personal satisfaction.

I work as a Licensed Psychologist in Portland, Oregon, and I am a preferred or participating provider with BlueCross BlueShield, Aetna, and Moda. I am currently seeing most of my clients using a video conferencing service, but I am starting to see some clients in my office. 

Thank you for your interest!

Therapist's Journal

The author Neil Gaiman once said, “I don’t write with answers in mind. I write to find out what I think about something.” That’s how writing works for me. This journal is a place for exploring and sharing ideas that have emerged from my own life experiences, both professional and personal. I don’t claim to have access to any special wisdom or knowledge, and nothing expressed here should be taken as professional advice or as a substitute for professional services. Enjoy!

"Too much control is just as deadly as too little control. We need control and we need chaos. We need order, and disorder. Simplicity, and complexity. Carefulness, and recklessness. Poise, and panic. Science, and art."

"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of human kind as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or it is nothing."
