Enhancing relationships is the focus of my approach, whether it be your relationship with a partner, children, family, friends, or, perhaps most importantly, with yourself. I work with people to build self-awareness, to access and remove barriers to well-being, and to create healthy, supportive connections with others. I am interested in the unique story of each individual and provide a respectful, safe environment for exploration and growth. The path is flexible as I am responsive to each person's view of their own experience, their sense of what leads to difficulties, and what the goal for change is. Within this focus on individual experience, I utilize a few core approaches, which include positive psychology, or utilization of existing strengths and resources, attachment theory and emotion-focused therapy that consider the influence of previous and current relationships on our emotional experiences, and a cognitive-behavioral approach for basic skill building.

More Info About My Practice
My degree program provided coursework in individual, couple, and family therapy approaches. I have had additional training in Emotion-focused Couples Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and working with those affected by domestic violence. I currently have two office locations in order to provide services within the Portland-Metro area (Sylvan location) and within East County (Wood Village location). Some insurance companies offer reimbursement for out-of-network mental health services. You are responsible for payment of fees at the time of service and I cannot guarantee insurance company coverage. I do provide free billing service to insurance on behalf of clients who wish to submit claims. My fees are $120.00 for individual 45-50 minute sessions and $140.00 for 55-65 minute couples sessions. I do offer a sliding scale to accommodate financial need.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Individual concerns related to depression, anxiety, self-esteem, identity
How Psychotherapy Can Help
I am grateful for the work I do with people seeking change, as I am witness time and again to the capacity for growth and change when the opportunity is presented. Psychotherapy is the opportunity to prioritize your well-being, to explore and question, to 'try on' changes, and to have access to an unbiased, accepting, and supportive perspective beyond your own.
