Individual Trauma Therapy

Individual trauma focused therapy for adolescents and adults on NW 23rd and Johnson in Portland, Oregon.

I serve a diverse population of individuals who are motivated to learn more about themselves

Frustrated and impacted by past wounding and trauma? I understand how difficult that can be. You may find yourself moving through life without the ability to enjoy and be present. You may seek relief and distraction from pain, but find yourself suffering despite your best attempts to cope. In our society, we don’t talk about it very much, but what you are experiencing is normal. Reaching out to me and working together means you have a place to get help with your concerns.

I have a gentle, earnest, and grounded approach that is open-minded and curious. Together we can create a sanctuary away from it all. You are invited to bring whatever is present for you and arrive just as you are.

Some Specific Challenges That I Can Help with

Frustrated and impacted by past wounding and trauma, you may be feeling:

  • worried by the choices you are making
  • distracted and detached from people in your life
  • shameful and guilty about experiences you've had
  • triggered and overwhelmed by memories from the past
  • annoyed and irritated that life doesn't seem to be changing for the better
  • anxious and insecure about the direction you are headed

I am a student of life with a passion for growth. I look forward to collaborating with you towards greater self discovery and healing. I understand the powerful impact of relationship, and know that safety and acceptance have a gentle and profound impact for positive change.

“The curious part is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change”

- Carl Rogers
