“Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.”

~ Rumi

Life can be overwhelming at times. We all possess internal wisdom but it may be hidden from view at the moment. There are times in life when we need others to help us discover that wisdom, to remind us that we have our own North Star that can guide us to the best path for ourselves.

About Me

Welcome to my website!  I have been in full time private practice for 10 years.  I have had a varied career in social work both in the Midwest and in Oregon, where I have lived for nearly 40 years.  I have worked in outpatient community mental health clinics and inpatient psychiatry with a broad range of people and mental health issues. I am LGBTQIA + allied and welcome different cultures in my practice.  I am monolingual English speaking.

My Approach

In my experience I have found a psychodynamic/ contemporary psychoanalytically informed approach the most useful. I take a collaborative approach to therapy to help facilitate not only symptom relief but also to understand together the surrounding circumstances so that longer term healing can be promoted. I see people at least once weekly and find that twice weekly deepens the work. My preference is to see people in person but I also use teletherapy.   I take most of my continuing education courses through the Oregon Psychoanalytic Center and you can get more information about this approach to therapy at their website.

Why Seek Psychotherapy?

If you have been trying to manage on your own for awhile and are overwhelmed and/or no longer want to go it alone, talking with a therapist in a private and confidential setting can be helpful.

  • Build resilience
  • Increase your capacity for joy
  • Expand your life
  • Foster an understanding of yourself
  • Improve your ability to be in relationships

Fees & Insurance

The first three sessions I use to assess your situation. During that time we will both be assessing whether I am the right therapist fit for you and I will suggest referrals if desired.

I am in network for MODA, BlueCross, Aetna and PacificSource. It is your responsibility to check out your benefits, including deductible and copay amounts. I can bill out of network and accept out of pocket payment.

As of 7/1/23 my fee for a 45 minute session is $150.

I request that all new patients be seen in person, at least initially. Thank you.
