I am trained at Level I and Level II in EMDR and I use it frequently in my practice. I am in an on-going EMDR consultation group in which we discuss cases, share ideas, and explore new developments in the treatment protocols.
I have been training and serving as a TA at the Portland META (Mindful Experiential Therapy Approaches) Institute since 2015. My training there includes Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy, Experiential Attachment Psychotherapy, and Advanced Clinical Maps.
Before attending Pacifica Graduate Institute in 2003, I did a masters degree in Psychology at Saybrook Graduate Institute, one of the premier humanistic psychology schools in the US. I currently support my interest in this field through an ongoing consultation group with Bob Edelstein, an existential/humansitic therapist in Portland, OR.
Despite our best efforts, self-esteem is not something that we can 'will' into place. It cannot be bestowed upon us from outside. And it doesn't magically appear when we whisper affirmations to ourselves. Rather, self-esteem develops when we feel genuinely seen and cared about and can begin to practice compassion and forgiveness toward ourselves. Therapy can support this process.
'The tragedy is not that we suffer, the tragedy is that we suffer alone.' Grieving the loss of a loved one may be the hardest thing you ever do -- you don't need to do it alone. Through one-on-one counseling and/or bereavement groups, you can heal the hole in your heart and live a life full of vitality once again.
PTSD results when the mind knows the trauma is over, but the body doesn't. Using EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing -- an evidence-based treatment for trauma) and a caring and compassionate presence, I can help you bring your mind AND body into the present moment where you can experience freedom, joy, and aliveness.
When we experience anxiety, it can feel like our nervous system is on chronic 'high alert.' This can be frustrating, exhausting, and disruptive. Using mindfulness, self-soothing techniques, breathing exercises, and deep exploration, we will get to the root of anxiety so you can calm and soothe your nervous system and fully enjoy your life.
Depression is depressing! No one likes to feel chronic despair, sadness, hopelessness, and loss of purpose and meaning -- all hallmarks of clinical depression. But I believe that with compassion, mindfulness, and support, it is possible to tend to depression such that healing can unfold and vitality can be restored.

Sometimes, when I am feeling lonely or blue, I find solace in a long walk by myself. And sometimes, when I’m lucky, something extraordinary happens.
