Licensed Professional Counselor in Beaverton, OR
I have worked with men post-incarceration since 1997. No matter how long you spent in, getting out is a complicated adjustment to make. I can help ease that transition.
Burnout includes feeling emotionally drained, a lack of empathy, and the sense that nothing you do makes a difference any more. I can help you process your stress and build new habits that defend against future burnout.
Sex at its best can be a source of pleasure and connection. However, the reality sometimes falls short of that. Even the happiest couples can have a hard time navigating sexual moments. Using relationship and communication skills, I work with individuals and couples to help you increase your sexual satisfaction.
Mindfulness skills can help slow down reactivity, giving you more control over choices. Mindfulness practice also helps you stay in the moment, where you can find greater joy and peace.
Our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors all have an interactive feedback loop with each other. Changing your habits of thought can help you experience your negative feelings with less intensity and your positive feelings with greater intensity, all of which gives you more control over your behaviors. And, as you change your day-to-day actions, your emotions and thoughts shift with you.
