Life. Changing. Therapy.
My mission is to find peace with exactly who and what I am. To take pride in my thoughts, my appearance, my talents, my flaws and to stop this incessant worrying that I can't be loved as I am. --Anais Nin

The current world is full of uncertainties, and it can be a scary and confusing time. You might be feeling extremely anxious, fearful, depressed and really out of sorts. Being more irritable with the ones we love is common (especially when you can't avoid them!), as is changes in eating or sleeping habits. You might find old coping habits surfacing - ones you thought were gone. One minute you are fearful of the future and the next you worry that you might be wildly over reacting. All these feelings are very valid. I specialize in life transitions and all the symptoms that accompany the unknown. I can help you weather this storm.
ALL OF YOU IS WELCOME HERE.
I founded Inner Life Psychotherapy because I believe that everyone can move through their pain and struggles and have the life that they imagine. Life transitions can be an opportunity to really figure out what you want from life. You can transform the suffering into emotional growth and joy.
I am passionate about serving all types of individuals from all over the greater Portland area including Lake Oswego, SW Portland, SE Portland and Beaverton/Tigard.
Inner Life is a place to become fully alive again, to explore the dark places and the pieces of you that have been ignored or shut down. To acknowledge and heal past hurts, to focus on you, to nurture your dreams and aspirations.
To discover and create the life you want, the life you deserve.
"The wound is where the light comes in".
Coronavirus, social distancing, mid-life crisis, divorce, graduating, career changes, diagnoses, marriage, beginning/ending relationships, big or small, change can suck.
In a society that tells us how to look, what to eat (and not eat), and how to feel about ourselves, how do we begin to accept ourselves exactly as we are?
Single and want to be coupled? Coupled and want more satisfaction? Co-dependant, too independent, anxious, avoidant? Relationships bring some of the biggest life challenges we face.
Your past does not have to dictate your future. But often past trauma, relationship experiences, and the compounding of daily issues can cause us to get stuck in old unhealthy patterns.
It's there, right inside. Your worth is buried under the voice that says mean, horrible things that may feel true, but just aren't. Self-understanding, self-compassion and faith in yourself is what we will seek together.
