Educated clinically in the field of psychiatric/mental health prescribing and behavioral therapy, I have had the pleasure of working with clients in a variety of settings-- inpatient, outpatient, private practice, and academic health centers. My clinical approach has consistently embraced a strengths focused, solution oriented model-- one that praises individuals for seeking to live fully actualized lives, rather than pathologizing struggles or difficulties. As I continued to further my professional education in the areas of positive psychology, life/wellness coaching, and mind-body health (utilizing a bio-psycho-social-spiritual model), it became clear that fitness cannot be separated between mind/core Self and body/physical self. My true passion is in assisting individuals to make a connection- to move fully into their bodies, and to strengthen them for the journey of their lives, according to what delights, energizes, and motivates each individual client.

    FORMER CLIENTS ON THE WEST COAST:
    Please note: I am now offering tele-conference/tele-consult and tele-coaching services... I can still be reached via my private practice telephone # and via my (non-academia-affiliated email address)... I am living nearly as far as is possible (within the continental US!) from Portland, Oregon in New England... and while I do NOT miss my experience of Portland, I VERY MUCH MISS the amazing and indeed mission-defining work engaged in with you... YES, you... recall conversations, perhaps some of which may have been turning points for you-- I PROMISE you, in that moment, you instructed my life and my life's work in unspeakable ways. I'd love to share more here-- however, I trust that those individuals for whom my services are the "right fit", having now been given an invitation to contact me, will do so. For those who choose another path, let me offer you my heart-felt thanks and future blessings.
    It is with GREAT HOPE that I post this-- I sincerely, excitedly and with GREAT ANTICIPATION look forward to the next, more free, more authentic and less restricted/regulated/artificially defined phase of our work together, in pursuit of your goals-- in the ever-evolving, increasingly rewarding, inherently encouraging and unstoppably motivational/inspirational upward spiral which is your life! I am delighted to answer any//all questions re: my decisions to focus on coaching//consulting vs a label/diagnosis code/pathology-based model, including the events and the process by which I finally arrived at this decision with more confidence, more competence, more expertise, and more peace than I've ever known to this point. it has not been an easy nor a blood-less decision for me, however, I KNOW as I listen to my still, small voice that ultimately, this is the ONLY RIGHT path, the only moral, ethical or legitimate path by which to fully offer myself to the World.
