I provide counseling services for individuals, couples or marriage counseling, and classes and group work from my office in close-in SE Portland.
Since therapy isn't one-size-fits-all, I integrate several perspectives in my Portland counseling practice to better meet the full range of your needs. Those perspectives include body-mind counseling therapy, the Existential-Humanist perspective, mindfulness, and other approaches for working with individuals and in couples counseling. As an integrated combination, these perspectives are a powerful way to work toward change and greater fulfillment.
Finding a counselor who's right for you is essential for successful counseling. To make evaluating my Portland counselor services easier, I offer an initial consultation session to you at no cost. My initial consults are a time to get answers to your questions, learn more about my methods, talk about your concerns, and get a sense of my style so that you can judge whether my work is a good fit for your therapy needs. The no-cost initial consult has been my policy since 1999 and most of my therapy clients first meet me this way. You can schedule a no-cost initial consultation with my online scheduler, through email to me or by phone to 503-963-8600 at my Portland therapy office.
