About Me

An Individual and Couples Counselor in Portland Oregon.

Read my reviews on YELP!

If I really see you, I will laugh out loud,

or fall silent, or explode into a thousand pieces.

If I don’t, I will be caught in the cement and stone of my own prison.

Rumi

 

I believe that relationships can become our best therapist and our partner our greatest teacher. If you are finding yourself consistently unhappy in your relationships and don’t know what to do, then you are in the right place.

I am a couples  and individual counselor with a practice in Portland OR. I help couples and individuals become more connected, authentic and happier with themselves and the people in their lives.

Without pointing your finger at others, what gets in your way of having the relationships you want?

I promise that when you are done working with me you will know your self and all your habits and reflexes that get in the way of you being truly you. I am dedicated to helping you and your partner become empathic and mature adults in relationship!

Bio
I went to graduate school at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, www.ciis.edu.  I received my MA in Integral Counseling Psychology, a program that integrates psychodynamics, humanistic and transpersonal psychology into a highly advanced program training great clinicians. After graduate school I moved to Portland Oregon, where I joined the Portland Relationship Center,  There I began my training as a couples counselor using the the Imago approach to couples counseling. After becoming a licensed professional counselor I received my certification in Imago. I consider myself an eclectic therapist, meaning I have a lot of tools in my tool-bag and I will work with you to find the ones that will help us help you grow.

I also have an extensive background working with adolescents and their families to navigate the transition from child to young adult.
