Portland Therapy Center Member

I offer mindfulness-based and holistic services to those affected by stress, anxiety, depression, or various unwanted addictive behaviors.

Stressors can be from work, relationships, or concerns about the World, among others. Addictive cycles can include drugs or alcohol, food, or destructive romantic patterns.

Within the context of mindfulness-based approaches I have studied in both college and spiritual settings, these behaviors are seen to be driven by unconscious, automatic pressures that can be brought into awareness and resolved.

They fill a void in one’s life that can be replaced by a sense of wholeness, completeness, autonomy, and authenticity.

Clients engage in several counseling approaches to connect with a deeper sense of self, including talk therapy, mindfulness meditation on the breath and inner emotions, yoga, and scanning and awakening the energy field of the inner body.

These help create meaning and put one on the path to self-actualization.

Gradually, less constrictive thought processes replace conditioned reactions, and released energies are poured into new areas of growth.

Clients may receive support for physical regimens at local gyms or yoga studios, as well as reassessment of educational, occupational, and relationship-related goals, to provide for holistic, long term health.
