Modern Psychotherapy and Coaching

We provide evidence-based psychotherapy and coaching to the people of Portland.
Our approach is based on the latest in Neuroscience and delivered with care.
1. Reclaim Your Story
Tell your story
to a good listener.
Someone who cares
about your point of view.
Discover the integrity
of your inner voice
as you write a better ending.
2. Reconnect to Your World
Lower the intensity
of your survival response.
Bring flexibility
to your brain
and nervous system,
empowering
how you relate
to your current choices.
3. Realize Your Superpowers
Turn surviving into thriving
as you gain evidence
from your own success
for new beliefs
and greater integration.
What now are symptoms
will become
Your Superpowers.
