It is perfectly normal for individuals, couples, and families to experience problems at various times, and therapy can be very useful in helping to navigate life’s trials and transitions. I believe that everyone possesses abundant natural strengths and resiliencies to draw from to achieve goals and move closer to a preferred life.
I provide a safe, non-judgmental, and respectful space for you to explore and express your thoughts and feelings. I work relationally and collaboratively with you to build upon your own strengths and use them to find solutions helpful in achieving your goals. I think of my role as a collaborator and guide, helping you achieve solutions and move toward your preferred life.
I work holistically, considering various life contexts, including biological, psychological, family, social, cultural, and spiritual. Additionally, when appropriate I explore issues of power and oppression with clients as they may relate to aspects of identity (e.g., gender, race, sexual orientation) to help clients restore relational equity.
SERVICES I OFFER
I provide psychotherapy to individuals, couples, and families in the Portland, OR metropolitan area. I help clients with many issues including anxiety, depression, relationship problems, family conflict, and addiction issues. My therapeutic approach is relational, client-centered, and solution-focused, and my goal is to foster individual and relational well-being. I value confidentiality and endeavor to provide a safe, non-judgmental, and LGBTQ-friendly space. Additionally, I have extensive experience as a touring and recording musician and welcome the opportunity to work with bands experiencing relational difficulties. I provide a free 20-minute telephone consultation to ensure that my services are appropriate for your needs.
**PLEASE NOTE: In an effort to promote everyone's safety and well-being during the coronavirus epidemic, I have temporarily shifted to doing video and telephone sessions.
My standard rate is $125 for 50-minutes of individual, couple, or family therapy (with some sliding scale availability based upon need). Contact me today!
