Individual Counseling

I provide individual counseling for anxiety, trauma, depression, stress, panic, anger and aggression, and relationship difficulties.

Couples Counseling

As a couples counselor, I use a collaborative method based on John Gottman's 7 Principles for Making Marriage Work, and Dan Wile's Collaborative Couples Therapy ( My approach helps couples move from being adversaries and/or strangers to collaborators and confidantes.

Anger Management

Anger is a natural emotion that serves the purpose of getting you ready to act when you feel attacked.  It becomes a problem when you feel attacked all the time and let your angry reactions become a habit.  

I can help you resolve anger that is creating trouble in your relationship. I will help you use a combination of self-observation, skill building, and mindfulness,  to create new ways to respond to stress and provocation.

Minding Anger Counseling Group

In this variation on traditional anger management groups, we are utilizing principles of mindfulness, meditation, cognitive behavioral therapy, anger management, and Ki-Aikido concepts to help participants rise above unhealthy mental/emotional states.  

This weekly counseling group provides support to men, while they grapple with changing the way they express their anger.  This group would also be helpful for depression, which often shows in men as overwork, alcohol and drug problems and anger.   


I use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a proven method for resolving self-limiting beliefs, anxiety, depression, and self-defeating behavior that results from a traumatic event. For more information on this treatment, please visit the EMDR website.

Creating Peak Performance

I draw from principles of Ki-Aikido, EMDR and visualization to help you rise above self-imposed limitations and realize your full potential in your career, school, and/or sports.

Domestic Violence Intervention and Assessment

I have extensive experience in domestic violence counseling, having worked with domestic violence offenders and victims since 1991. If you are unsure whether you are in an abusive relationship, I can help with domestic violence assessment and treatment.  

From 1995 to 2005, I created and directed the Family Treatment and Violence Intervention Program in cooperation with the Multnomah County Community Justice Department.
