As a therapist, I listen deeply and carefully to individuals, couples, and families as they tell their stories. I work with the connections between people, how change or lack of change causes something to happen somewhere else in the system (systems theory).

I look for the secure and insecure attachments that exist between each person and their family members, partners, friends, and co-workers.

I help people who have experienced trauma, who need grief counseling and traumatic experience therapy. We work together to abandon old, harmful brain connections that are painful. We reprocess the old, and forge new, functional, and life-affirming brain pathways.

Where there are old, tired, and dysfunctional stories that hold people back, I help them to build new stories and to repair broken attachments.

If you are seeking a therapist in Oregon or Idaho who can help you through whatever you’re experiencing, I’d love to be there for you.
