counselling approach of serena barton, portland, oregon, therapist

Counseling is a joint involvement for counselor and client. Together we create a safe environment in which you can grow and make the changes you desire. My style is caring, honest, humorous when appropriate, and practical. I have worked with individuals, couples, groups, and families from many backgrounds and with children of all ages.

In addition to looking at areas you want to improve, we also take note of your strengths and build on these. I offer the option of including art and writing as part of your counseling. These activities have been shown to be particularly helpful in working through issues such as grief, transitions, creative blocks, post-traumatic stress, and learning to experience joy.

Through individual counseling I help you find inspiration and tools to discover your desires and goals. Couple and family counseling offer the chance to work through differences and conflicts and to better understand and appreciate each other. In addition to being a caring listener, I offer proven tools you can use to improve the quality of your life and relationships.

I base my work on developmental and self-psychology, family systems work, trauma theory, recovery perspectives, and relational therapy. I support you in embracing the delights, challenges, and mysteries of life.
