I provide individual counseling, couples or marriage counseling, and classes and group work in my Portland therapy practice. My office is located in SE Portland, close-in to the Willamette River bridges (Morrison, Hawthorne, Burnside) for easy access from SE and SW Portland, and I5 freeway access.
Whether I'm working with you on individual counseling or couples counseling, my work is guided by a consistent set of guiding principles.
Principles that guide me in my counseling practice with individuals and couples:
I work with you in individual counseling to come to terms with the concerns that brought you to seek counseling and to develop your skills and resources so that you find a satisfying resolution. I want to see you address your concerns as quickly as you're able while pursuing the personal growth work that you may need to resolve concerns and find the fulfillment you're seeking. I often find my clients visiting a variety of different life themes and life's givens in the course of their work.
My couples counseling methods follow the same humanistic principles listed above, adapted for couples counseling. I also integrate other principles and methods that are important for the couples context. Since there is so much I can say about my work with couples I've devoted a separate page to couples (or marriage) counseling.
