Accepting Clients

My niche is providing couples therapy to those 55+ but I'll never stop also offering EMDR and individual therapy for anxiety and depression.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Oregon

About My Clients

Because I am also over 55, I find that I relate well to my older couples therapy clients. The dynamic of being with a couple is an honor and uniquely special. We're all just learning better how to love. However the magic of EMDR is something I still offer to people seeking healing from trauma or a whole host of issues. And I have many tools for the numerous ways folks want to improve when I work with them individually. I am very comfortable with diversity: LGBTQ+, BIPOC, and sexual expression.

My Background and Approach

My clinical background is eclectic including an emphasis on reflective listening, mindfulness and meditation, spirituality (especially the mystics of the Christian, Buddhist and Muslim traditions), training and experience with gerontology, social work values and social justice, an in depth study of Gestalt Therapy, a wide variety of influences on my work with couples (including Gottman, Burns, attachment theory, sexuality, ethical non-monogamy, and Prepare/Enrich), CBT, DBT, Compassion-Focused Therapy and EMDR. My approach is warm, genuine and kind. The first thing I will want to know is what you want to get out of therapy and then we'll proceed from there. And as we work together I will check in with you to make sure that we're on the right tack and that you are indeed getting what you came for. There are many theories and tools and thankfully science-based interventions to implement but an important component is your relationship with me and I want that to feel safe and nurturing.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a believer in the beauty of each individual and in their inherent worth and dignity and capacity to change. To change I think we all need both internal and external support and our inner work and our relationships to our friends, family and community matter immensely. I work to promote individuals and couples in finding their inner love and joy and I encourage them to express it in their relationships, hobbies, work and lifestyles. My own life is nurtured by a deep spiritual practice of meditation and journaling. I am a lover of the perfect quote and the meaningful poem. For fun I enjoy Laughter Yoga, ping pong, bowling, pool, trips to the beach and for exercise I go on long walks and do water aerobics. A great restaurant meal or a gathering of friends adds to my overall love for life.
