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

Principles for Making Marriage Work, and Dan Wile's Collaborative Couples Therapy (http://www.danwile.com). My approach helps couples move from being adversaries and/or strangers to collaborators and confidantes.

method for resolving self-limiting beliefs, anxiety, depression, and
self-defeating behavior that results from a traumatic event. For more

Creating Peak Performance

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.
