My Approach to Helping

Are you feeling stuck and searching for clarity within yourself? Are you struggling in a relationship and you can\'t break the same cycle? I am passionate about supporting individuals, couples and families in their quest for harmony and healing. We will work together to identify and achieve key goals that have the power to transform your life and relationships. I strive to bring a warm and open atmosphere that encourages compassion and collaboration. Areas of expertise include the following:

*Learning new communication skills to manage anger and decrease conflict
*Rebuilding broken trust between partners
*Affair recovery
*Family Blending
*Parenting: raising healthy children including challenging teens
*Chronic illness

More Info About My Practice

I have extensive experience moving couples from hopelessness toward healing and reconnection. If you are experiencing frequent communication impasses, infidelity, lack of sexual interest and disconnect, I can help. I take a collaborative approach that includes a mixture of talk therapy, mindfulness, neurobiology education and recommended readings.

I\'ve worked at Oregon Health and Science University as a family therapist supporting families with children who struggle with chronic, complex medical issues. I\'ve also worked at Portland State University\'s Community Counseling Clinic.

In my previous career, I was a horticulturist and a writer. I have a BA in English from the University of California, Berkeley.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

The strength of the relationship between counselor and client is the single-most important factor in a successful outcome. When searching for the right counselor, it's important to contact several different professionals to find the right fit: someone who makes you feel safe and who connects with your issues. I am a warm, approachable, kind, intuitive and seasoned individual who might be the right match for you. I encourage you to contact me for a free 15-minute phone consultation to explore if this is the case. I am always happy to refer you to another excellent counselor who may be a better fit. I look forward to hearing from you. 503-805-1566
