...and thanks for visiting this site!


My practice is focused primarily on counseling for individual adults,

though I also work with some couples and older teens as my

schedule allows. If you are new to me or my services, you'll find

information about who I am, how I work, and what I offer

contained within. I am happy to offer a brief telephone

consultation should you need more information.*


    The decision to address personal concerns with a professional

counselor is one that takes courage and some intuition. Though

I have been working as a counselor since the mid-1990s, I

appreciate that this might be the first time you've risked taking

this step. Take your time to choose a counselor who not only

provides a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere where you feel

understood, but who also offers tangible ways for you to address

and resolve whatever holds you back.

   Psychotherapy outcome studies consistently report that the relationship between therapist and client must be a good fit in order to have positive results. Our first session will be a good opportunity to assess the issues you want to address, to understand the ways I believe we can create the changes you desire, and to gauge your comfort and readiness.

* PLEASE NOTE: I am currently concentrating on an increased training schedule and have reduced my weekly office hours. I am therefore unable to accept new clients or interns for the time being. The PDF above contains Portland-area IFS therapists who may be able to assist you.
