Do you feel stuck in patterns that lead to stress, conflict, and/or withdrawal from life? Are you struggling with anger, fear, or sadness? Are you dissatisfied with life and don't know why? There is hope for a better life. Having the courage to admit that things aren't going well is the first step to changing them. I have helped many people to find greater freedom from self-limiting patterns and move toward happier lives. I work with: grief, trauma, stress, anxiety,addictions,obsessions, compulsions, attention and impulse control, relationship distress, parenting, and spiritual growth.
My general approach to therapy is collaborative, mindfulness-based, and interactive. I have received training in: acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, family systems therapy, narrative therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), scientifically based relationship therapy, mindfulness-based body centered therapy, and mindfulness meditation.
I am a seasoned therapist providing body centered mindfulness-based therapy services in Portland since 1990. I have extensive experience providing supervision to therapists. I meet the requirements for supervising LCSW and LPC candidates.Please email me or give me a call. I am happy to answer questions.
