Want to Grow Personally? I can help.
If you’re interested in making meaningful changes in the direction of a fulfilling and purpose-filled life, I would love to assist you. I encourage psychological growth by exploring values, examining your goals, setting clear steps for experimenting with new actions, and supporting your courage as you try on new thoughts and behaviors. I can help you author and direct your life story so it falls into alignment with the person you want to be.
I’m a skill builder and solution seeker. I’m a licensed psychologist (OR #936) working in private practice for over 30 years. I’ve gathered tools and strategies that work and I can teach you how to use these to create a life of contentment and meaning. I am a teacher of psychological wisdom and I will adapt state-of-the-art treatment strategies to fit your individual goals and intentions. I will support and encourage you while you build the skills that foster your potential. After equipping you well, I will celebrate your success while you soak in the joy of your accomplishments. And, if needed, I will welcome you to return if your tools get rusty or you want to expand your growth. You can do this!
I enjoy working with adults, couples, and curious teenage girls. I have several ongoing groups for adults where you can experiment, practice, and obtain additional support. If you are interested in working in passionate, goal-directed, and engaging psychotherapy, give my office a call and we can talk about scheduling.
