Help With Career Counseling, Mental Health Counseling in Beaverton Oregon, and Portland area.
People seek counseling because they are in distress and are seeking support and answers. Counseling isn’t a cure-all. But for the types of emotional strain that many people live with all of their lives — depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, and many others — counseling offers the possibility not only to alleviate pain, but the opportunity to live a richer and more fulfilling life.
Career Counseling can offer a safe space for people to let down their guards and work with their counselor to identify their inner strengths and values. Sometimes a session may bring tears; but just as much value is a session filled with laughter. The end goal is for clients to utilize their personal strengths to find peace with their pasts and build brighter, healthier futures.
Mental Health Counseling
I view counseling, whether for careers or relationships, as a process of mutual engagement and commitment to change and growth. I care deeply about my clients and have an abiding commitment to helping them confront the issues in their lives. My enduring hope is that, in that process, they will discover more joy, meaning and purpose in their lives.

Therapeutic Approach to Career Counseling and Life Coaching
I believe that the most effective client and counselor relationship is one based on mutual respect and collaboration. My theoretical orientation is rooted in the philosophies of existentialism which emphasize individual existence, freedom and choice.
I utilize motivational interviewing techniques and cognitive behavior exercises to help clients examine their thought and relationship patterns and what is working for them and what is not.
My ultimate goal is to work myself out of a job by assisting clients to develop positive skills and tools to use in the present and the future for pursuit of the healthy lives they desire.
