I have experience treating individuals and couples on a wide variety of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, grief, and life transitions. I enjoy working in partnership with my clients to help them get unstuck and improve the quality of their lives, encouraging the natural resilience inherent in each of us.
We will draw from your natural resources to help you create change. If you are ready to change and grow, my office is a good place to leave your pain and learn to utilize your strengths.
I received my Master of Social Work (MSW) from Portland State University in 1993, and have been in private practice since 1999. Prior to that I worked in hospital and school settings. I also have a background in business (first career) so I have first-hand awareness of what it is like to work in the "real" world.
Please contact me by phone at 503-827-4303. If you reach my voice mail, I will make every effort to return your call the same day. You are welcome to ask questions and find out if therapy can help you.
