Welcome

I offer effective and affordable individual, couples, and family therapy to children, adults, and families in the  Portland and Lake Oswego , Oregon areas facing the difficult challenges associated with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, self esteem and relationship issues. These challenges add a layer of complexity to maintaining emotional wellness during vulnerable times.

As an Integrative therapist, I combine a number of theoretical orientations to help achieve optimal wellness to help uncover inner strengths to fully integrate those pieces of your life story that are working and let go of those pieces that no longer serve you. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to achieve a better understanding of how your experiences shape the way you see yourself in the world and resolve to better understand the challenges you are now facing through a new lens of self awareness.   

I have a strong background successfully helping individuals, couples, children and their families strengthen relationships, increase effective communication skills, develop calming and relaxation techniques to manage anxiety and stress, develop self-concept building skills, and collaborative problem solving skills to navigate numerous challenges.  

If you are looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation, please contact me for an individual, family therapy or academic mentoring session to discuss the ways in which I can help.  I look forward to working with you.
