"We are only as sick as the secrets we keep."

Patrick Carnes

Achieving a good marriage is very hard work.  Sometimes it is necessary to seek help for conflict resolution to move beyond either a cold or hot war.  It is important to work with a marriage therapist who believes that every relationship has the potential for improvement.
"In every marriage more than a week old, there are grounds for divorce.  The trick is to find and continue to find grounds for marriage."
Robert Anderson from his play Solitaire/Double Solitaire
"The greatest conflicts are not between two people but between one person and himself."
Garth Brooks in Country Music
"The Greatest of all disorders is to think we are whole and need no help."
Thomas Wilson (1663-1735)

            Resume               Philosophy Statement           Certification
     I approach counseling as a spiritual, emotional, and psychological tool useful to promote healing in the areas of interpersonal emotions, mental health, and relationships.  One goal of the counseling I will provide is to strengthen your own healing and recovery process in all areas of your life.  I believe an important part of counseling is for the counselor to provide guidance and education about the healthy use of relationships and resources.  As change occurs in the above areas, people find that they are increasing their ability to meet their needs with a reduced need to use a counselor.  At this point, the role of the counselor continues to be that of a cheerleader and mentor with the goal of finalizing the success of the counselee.
     I have a broad range of counseling experience over 14+ years, and am a Licensed Master's level Social Worker.  I have experience in the areas of child and adolescent therapy, family therapy, and adult therapy. I have experience providing counseling to individuals and families in the areas of recovery from abuse, second-stage recovery from addictions, eating disorders, issues with employment, marital issues, medical and mental health issues, parenting issues for children with behavioral and emotional problems, spiritual issues, and grief and loss issues.
     I realize that it may be difficult to disclose information that is personal to a counselor.  I believe that we become healthier individually as we take the risk to become more "real" and honest about who we are, where we have come from, and where we are going.  I therefore believe that as you enter a counseling relationship, as you take the risk to share and become more real, you will find more "wholeness".  This wholeness will occur in many areas of your life, including:  interpersonally, mentally, spiritually, and in your relationships.  I count it a privilege to be a part of this process

Kathy has her Master’s of Education as a Special Ed Teacher and her Master’s of Science degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Portland State University.  She has a wealth of experience teaching and counseling.  She is particularly interested in working with individuals, couples, and families who struggle with the impact of trauma in relationships.  I take a “Structural Family System” approach in working with clients in order to help identify what might be keeping them “stuck”, thus preventing them from functioning at an optimal level.  My theoretical orientation stems from Control Mastery Theory, which asserts that all individuals have a desire to reach their potential.  It is often their beliefs, rooted in their family of origin, that present obstacles in reaching their goals.  My goal as a therapist is to facilitate self understanding and improve the process of reaching one’s full potential.  Kathy specializes in:  Family/Couple Therapy; Individual Therapy; Abuse/Trauma issues; Codependency; Play/Sand Tray Therapy; Parenting; Family Divorce Mediation Counseling; Spiritual Awareness; and Psychosocial Aspect of Disabilities.
