I have been in practice as a mental health counselor since 1987 in Portland. I have worked with a large number of persons who have been carrying many different burdens. Today can be the day that you begin the journey to transform your suffering into peace and serenity.
People come to see me because they want their lives to be different. They want to feel better about themselves and what they are doing with their lives and in their relationships.
No matter what you struggle with, please know that you can find help. If, for any reason, I am not able to work with you, I would be happy to refer you to another therapist.
Let me say something general about my work. Over the years I have been inspired by a large number of therapists and teachers, and as a result, I apply various theories and techniques depending on the needs of each individual client. I feel deeply committed to finding just the right tools to use to address each person's unique situation and history.
Many studies have shown that the most important factor in successful therapy is the creation of a safe, secure, and open relationship between client and therapist. That is why I spend so much energy making sure that all my clients feel empowered and safe in our therapeutic relationship.
I provide individual, couples, and some family counseling as well as supervision of new graduates seeking licensure, and consultation for seasoned therapists who are looking to learn new skills. I also provide spiritual direction to those clients who are interested in understanding and deepening their spiritual lives. You can find more about all these parts of my practice on the pages of this website.
Please call me today to set up an appointment.
I wish you the best.
