Most of us experience desolate places from time to time in our lives. In these liminal times we often search for someone to see our pain, help us tell our story, make sense of our circumstances, and find the best way forward.
Psychotherapy is an intensive helping relationship where I listen to your story as you listen to your life, and then together we work to create a future filled with hope and possibility and flourishing.
I have been a licensed psychologist since 1985 and board certified through the American Board of Professional Psychology since 1995, giving me many years of experience in diagnosing and treating a variety of maladies, including anxiety disorders, depression, adjustment challenges, grief, and relationship troubles.
If you live in the state of Oregon and are looking for a therapist, let's talk. I'll be happy to discuss your situation with a confidential phone conversation or email.
I completed an undergraduate degree in chemistry and psychology from Lewis & Clark College, then a PhD in clinical psychology from Vanderbilt University before doing an internship in medical psychology and a private residency in psychological assessment at Oregon Health Sciences University.
Throughout my career I have provided assessment and therapy services while also working as a professor, researcher, and author.
How it Works
I offer my services remotely so that you can see me in the comfort and privacy of your home or office.
My HIPAA-compliant Zoom room is easy to access with the same link each time we meet.
I am on some insurance panels, but not all. If I'm not part of your insurance panel, I can provide you with a Super Bill that you can submit for reimbursement at out-of-network rates.
I was born and raised in Oregon, and spent time in Tennessee (for graduate school) and Illinois (for a professorship at Wheaton College).
Currently, I live in Yamhill County on a small farm where my wife and I enjoy walking, writing, growing fruit and vegetables, being with family and friends, engaging with our faith community, and helping others as a psychologist (me) and spiritual director (her). Oh, and I enjoy playing basketball, though I'm not very good any more.
