Counselor in Portland, OR
I use a Trauma-Informed Therapy to address the psychological, emotional, relational and physical problems that past trauma can create. My approach draws from numerous sources including Neuroscience, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and EMDR.
Feeling anxious can be overwhelming and all consuming. It doesn’t have to be. We humans have a natural stress response that causes us to feel anxious we need to learn to work with that natural response to get anxiety under control. I can support you in understanding, working with and managing the mental physical and emotional responses to anxiety.I engage somatic regulation skills and integrate methods to help you create new patterns of responses to stress.
Few people understand what it is like to grieve and most prefer avoiding the topic all together or give unsolicited advice. You may be feeling alone and sense that others are uncomfortable or inpatient when you discuss your feelings. I provide a space where you can relax, learn about, process and express your feelings freely without judgment. It can be a great relief to have someone who understands personally and professionally what grief and loss is like.
