Our Team

Often when someone picks a therapist, they do not spend much time shopping for the right one. Choosing your therapist should involve an interview process, in which you ask questions about how they are going to help you. All too often, the therapist is chosen by who returns their call first, who is on their insurance plan, or who they might have happened to come across.

So, what should you ask of the potential therapist you are choosing? Here are some ideas:

  • First, you want to know a little bit about why you are seeking therapy, what you hope to accomplish, and what you think you want to work on. The process of therapy may take you down different paths, but in the beginning, you want to have some idea of what you hope to get from the experience.
  • With that knowledge in hand, you want to ask your potential therapist if they have experience working with these areas.
  • Then, ask how they work with this issue and what methods they use. When was the last time they had a client that had similar issues or needs? What will the process of healing these issues look like? Does the therapist have an idea of how the issues you want help with are transformed?

MA, LMHCA

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate in the State of Washington, and a Registered Therapist Intern in Oregon. I am passionate about helping clients find their strength, feel empowered and confident, and discover meaning and purpose in their lives. Therapy with me is client centered, comes from a holistic perspective, and is a nonjudgmental and collaborative space. My therapeutic approach is integrative: I work in session to help you address emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and interpersonal relationships, and I use mindfulness and other tools that many people have found help them cope with challenging life circumstances. I provide therapy for individuals, families, and couples, and have worked with clients bringing a wide range of issues to therapy, including anxiety, depression, trauma and PTSD, grief, family conflict, life transitions, stress, behavioral addictions, and most general counseling issues. If you are feeling bothered with any of these issues, or any other challenge in life, let’s talk about it.

Biography

“Born in the UK and a dual- national, Stephen studied history at Hillsdale College in Michigan before getting his MA in Counseling/Psychology from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology in Seattle, Washington, where he studied under the tutelage of Dr. Dan B. Allender.

While he works with all sorts of trauma, Stephen has a successful history and interest in working with people who struggle with sexual addiction.

Theoretically, he is a psychotherapist birthed in object relations theories of psychoanalysis. He approaches his work from a narrative, relational, psychodynamic school of thought. That means that he thinks that peoples’ stories are of primary importance and that he partners with his clients, collaborating with them to find solutions and healing. He believes that ultimately only Love can bring lasting change.

He holds 21st-century Attachment Theory’s understanding of how & why people relate the way they do, and tries (not only to build secure relationships with clients) but to find ways for them to build new, secure attachments with others.

On a very pragmatic level, Stephen believes that people are designed for relationship and that shame destroys relationships. Wounds happen in and because of broken relationships. So, healing must occur in and through relationships as well.

He believes with Neville Symington that all pathology’s foundation is narcissism, and agrees with Thompson that shame is the root cause of that narcissism. He accepts Bessell VanderKolk’s research surrounding developmental trauma and the mind-body connection; and, holds Richard Schwartz’ structure of the mind being made of parts. He follows Dan Allender’s postulation that the particularities of our narrative need to be “re-membered,” mitigating the shame and trauma buried in those memories. He believes with Peter Levine that trauma is stored in our bodies and that true memory lies in our bodies and can be accessed there. He accepts 21st-century attachment theory and believes with Allan Schore and Ray Barsness that all of this work is done in the context of a secure relationship.

Stephen became a therapist rather late in life, spending most of his professional life working in the non-profit sector, focusing on leadership development and crisis care,

He is married to Paula and has two children: Maggie (20) and Thomas (18). He is an avid motorcyclist and huge fan of the Portland Timbers. He has three dogs: Rachmaninoff (“Rocco,” a 7-year-old, St. Bernard), Satchmo (a 6-year-old black lab), and Bailey (an 11-year-old border collie), and two cats (Chiara and Francesco). When not working, he loves adventuring with his wife on their bikes, playing with the dogs, and watching his kids grow into outstanding human beings.”

“I am licensed as a Clinical Social Worker in Oregon and Washington.  I have worked with individuals, couples, and families since 1987. My current focus is primarily on people dealing with anxiety, depression, grief, attachment, life transitions, trauma, family and other interpersonal issues. I use a highly respectful approach in helping my clients address their issues and build effective coping and communication skills. This can include identifying and shifting limiting patterns that are based on experiences of the past. I work with each individual in a way that empowers them to stay in charge of their own therapeutic process. In my studies and training, I have focused primarily on a body-mind approach to human psychological development incorporating psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral and systems-oriented principles. I have found that inner child work can often be very effective. In addition to my formal schooling, I have trained extensively in several programs, including Pesso Boyden System Psychomotor (PBSP), a 2-year Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy Internship, a 12-month coaching course, a 3-month internship entitled Total Body Matrix, and an 8-month Systemic Constellation Facilitator Learning Program.”

Biography
“I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Washington.  I have provided therapeutic treatment since 2003. I have worked with clients (men and women) in both group and individual settings.  Some of my work has focused on teaching relationship skills and using CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) with clients struggling with addictions and behavioral issues.  I am presently working with clients who have control, abuse, and codependent issues. I welcome clients who are grieving losses, making difficult decisions, and wanting a better way of living. I think laughter is still the best medicine.
I believe the counseling process is meant to provide safety, education and guidance for the client on their path of discovery, uncovery and recovery using active listening skills, empathy, mindfulness and modeling a healthy relationship with respect for boundaries. I believe good counseling means meeting the client where they are and guiding them to where they want to be.”
