My Approach to Helping

Depending on your needs and goals, I offer brief problem-solving therapy and/or longer-term psychodynamic psychotherapy. By design, I have maintained a broad-based practice, welcoming clients with many presenting concerns. However, some of my areas of special expertise include: Adoption (including adoption consultation & work with all members of adoption triad) Anxiety including AlphaStim Assertiveness Attachment and attachment issues Communication Considering parenthood (for single people, same sex couples, older parents) Couples therapy Depression Divorce/separation FASD Family of origin issues Fertility and infertility Gender identity Giftedness Grief and loss Jewish identity Life transitions LGBTQ+ identified Parenting concerns (including one's own issues playing out in parenting) Reactive attachment disorder Relationship concerns Religious and cultural legacies Self-esteem Single parenting Substance abuse Trans-cultural and trans-racial issues Trauma/PTSD Women's issues

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I graduated from Reed College with a BA in English, in retrospect a wonderful foundation for listening to and coming to understand my clients' life stories. Following my BA, I received an MAT (Master of Arts in Teaching), also from Reed. Some years later, I returned to Portland State University and earned a Master's degree in Social Work. I was a social worker in the heart of London before returning to Portland to begin my private practice. (more coming......................)
