Welcome ~ I am a Counselor conveniently located in the West Slope area of Portland, off of Canyon Road. (Find out more about me in my About section.) I work with individuals, couples and teens.  Although I am a trauma-informed therapist, I work with many individuals seeking  to change patterns that are not working for them.  Whether you are dealing with depression or anxiety, or have difficulty facing unresolved personal issues, therapy will help to uncover what is driving you.

Élan vital  is translated in English as "vital impetus", and also "vital force". It is a hypothetical explanation for evolution and development of organisms, linked closely with consciousness.
