I earned a PhD in clinical psychology and am a licensed psychotherapist in Oregon and Washington. Working together could help you gain more peace. As a therapist and former medical researcher, I understand what you can do to improve the quality of your life and find meaning in yourself, your relationships, and the world around you. I have an office in Portland, OR so you can meet me in person. I also provide online therapy for adults in Oregon and Washington, so you can speak with me from the comfort and security of your favorite chair or couch.
Let’s actively collaborate in therapy, together. Every moment of your day you choose to move towards discomfort or away from it. I can help you to make that choice and become more comfortable with your discomfort. Together, we can see what’s on the other side of it.
I identify as cisgender, educated, living with a chronic illness, male, middle class, polyamorous, White (having ancestry from England, Germany, and Hungary). Some of these parts of my identity were given to me, and some of them I created for myself. They make up my cultural present as well as my cultural past. I look forward to getting to know the parts of your identity and culture!
I can provide the support you need to help you find your way towards a grounded, whole life. Even if you’re feeling lost now, I can help guide you in making lasting, positive changes in your life.
I’ve helped people struggling with chronic pain find their way to feeling more capable. My clients discover that it’s possible to get the spark back and fall in love with life again.
Therapy for Trauma helps you rise above your challenges and start moving towards your ideal life with less less stress and more calm.
I can help you to focus on how the disappointments of the past and fears of the future affect you here and now, in the present. Together, we can help you find meaning and take care of yourself.
If you have trouble leaving the house, or don’t have any therapists nearby, or have a hard time making and keeping appointments, online video therapy may be for you.
After years of physical distancing, you might feel lonely and disconnected from the world and other people. You might be yearning for in-person connection in a safe way.
