Disclaimer: The Population I serve
Although I hold a Masters Degree from Allied International University in Marriage and Family Therapy, it is important to understand that I am neither a psychologist, nor psychotherapist. I practice as an unlicensed counselor as allowed by the state of Oregon. I have elected not to become licensed, because I choose to work with my clients from the “humanistic model” of therapy, not the “medical model” which views persons as being sick or healthy. There are persons who do suffer from disorders, and they are best helped by licensed practitioners.
The populations with whom I work with are everyday persons such as you and I who seek to amplify their understanding of themselves, to optimize their performance, and to recognize the promise of their human potential.
Persons needing diagnosis or treatment of behavioral, emotional or mental disorders are well advised to seek the services of a licensed psychotherapist. Please notate that the services that I provide are not a replacement for assessment, or diagnosis, or treatment of mental and medical illness when such is needed, desired, or required. I do not assess, diagnose, treat, or prescribe any illness whether mental disorder or physical. Instead my work intends to elevate the optimal functioning and personal growth of my clients.
