Finding a therapist can be daunting. There are so many options. What makes one better than the other? The answer really depends on what you are looking for. The needs, desires, and requirements are different for each individual. Our Portland based therapists have a wide arrange of therapy models they pull from. Some are trained in emotion-focused therapy, attachment therapy, Internal Family System, Cognitive-Behavioral therapy, Trauma informed, and in Motivational Interviewing.
What makes me different from other therapists? I believe in creating collaborative healing relationships with my clients.
I am not the expert on your life. Instead of doling out my diagnoses and treatment for you, we will work together to figure out what changes you want to make. Then, together, we will come up with an attainable, realistic plan of healing.
Each and every one of us has a story to tell. In large part, my curiosity about people’s stories led me to become a therapist.
I am deeply interested in how people interact and their experiences. Working to help people strengthen their relationships by feeling a greater sense of confidence and security is – for me – the most meaningful work imaginable.
WellPath Counseling Services, LLC welcomes our new feature therapist
I believe that people strive for health and happiness, and I base my therapeutic outlook on that belief in the goodness and power of people to change their own lives. I appreciate the opportunity to be your guide through this process of becoming a better and happier you. The most important part of our work is you, and what you want to be better in your life than how it exists for you right now.
With that all in mind, my therapeutic approach is integrative and collaborative. I work with you to figure out what you need and want from therapy, and we go from there, together. I use a variety of interventions, based on what you and I decide you want to work on, and how we want to work on these goals, with a foundation in emotion-focused process work and behavioral interventions, but with a little help from Zen and artistic outlooks as well.
