Life of health and well being, with less anxiety and depression is possible. If relocation, major life changes, or physical, mental and emotional symptoms are effecting you; you are not alone.

Holistic psychotherapy promotes self awareness and intention to create change. Through discussion, psychological interventions, somatic inquiry, and mindfulness one is encouraged to move through and release cycles of maladaptive behavior. Emotional insatiability, stress, fatigue and spiritual disconnect falls aside as life begins to have a greater sense of balance and ease.

Integrating body, mind and soul discovery into practice, I use theories from Gestalt, Mindfulness & Contemplative, and Transpersonal psychological disciplines.

Clients develop a personal self-care system, promoting pathways to their inner resilience. Uncovering who they truly are, clients feel more available to exploring their life purpose and meaning.

Selecting a therapist you feel is a good match for you is an important part of the process. I offer a free 30 minute initial consultation, to help us determine if we are a good fit.

Offering sound and practical guidance and support, I would be delighted to provide a free telephone consultation to determine if I am the right person to help you make the decisions and changes that you want in your life.

Most of us know intrinsically what we need to do, but can use consultation to safely reflect, and overcome the barriers in the way . I will try to ask the right questions, present different perspectives and options, and will help you be accountable to your goals and plans.

I am a Cornell University graduate in psychology with my MSW from Boston College. I have worked on in- patient psychiatry, detox units, rehab facilities, health clinics, and Employee Assistance Programs. I can help with a broad range of issues, and enjoy dealing with addictive behaviors, relationship issues, and work-related problems. I help couples navigate their differences, and learn how to communicate openly and honestly.

I have provided Leadership Coaching and Consultation to managers to help enhance their Emotional Intelligence and Interpersonal Skills, and be more effective at their jobs.

My standard fees are $80-$100 per session, and I will consider sliding scale depending on my client's financial situation. I do not bill any insurance companies presently.

Most clients describe me as empathic and perceptive. I am results oriented and patiently try to collaborate with help clients to be focused on their goals and plans. I use CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and humor in my work, and believe that he who laughs, lasts.

    You're likely here because your life isn't quite where you'd like it to be. You're struggling with relationships, or finding yourself reliving old patterns that are causing you pain. You're sick of feeling so isolated, depressed, disconnected, and frustrated when everyone else on Facebook seems so much happier and more successful. Maybe you've been trying to solve these problems on your own for a long time, yet still feeling stuck in the same old rut.

    There are times in life when we need someone to really hear what's going on, without bias or judgment. My focus is around helping you with examining your process toward making the changes you want for your life.

    I hold a BA in Psychology from UNC-Chapel Hill and a Master's Degree is Counseling Psychology & Addiction Studies from Lewis & Clark College. I'm passionate about helping adults across the lifespan and in and around the gender binary with increasing confidence and joy. My areas of focus include decreasing anxiety and isolation, exploring transitions, and shifting unfulfilling relationship dynamics. I look forward to hearing your story.

    Please call me at 503-468-6998 or email: counseling@moiraryan.com to schedule an appointment or just to talk with me further about your needs.

    My approach is collaborative, compassionate and honest. I honor each person's story and worldview and am committed to providing safe spaces for people of all communities and backgrounds.

    To ensure you receive the care that is right for you, I draw on an array of evidence based counseling approaches, with a particular focus on person-centered, existential and mindfulness therapy.

    I believe that we are each the experts of our own lives and that we have innate wisdom that can lead us to healing and change. However, life can be complex and painful and at times the challenges we face can feel overwhelming and prevent us from living the life we desire. Regardless of how these issues show up in our lives, it is our innate wisdom that propels us to seek support. As your counselor, I see myself as your ally in helping you get to where you want to be. I am committed to helping you connect with your own truth, find greater meaning in your life and deepen the connection you have with yourself and with others.

    I am passionate about empowering and engaging young people and working together with their families or caregivers to establish strong bonds of connection. Additionally, I understand the unique set of challenges entailed in relocation, displacement, migration and major life transitions and appreciate the role that each person's values, beliefs and backgrounds have on their approach to healing.

    I have an MA in Counseling Psychology from the University of British Columbia with additional in-depth training in group facilitation, youth work, intercultural education and couple's therapy. I have worked with children, adults and groups on issues of anxiety, stress, trauma, abuse, depression, loss, career planning and major life transitions. I have over 10 years of experience working with adolescents as a youth worker in high schools and community agencies, and over 8 years of experience working with immigrant and refugee communities.

    I offer a free 30-minute consultation to discuss your needs and determine if I am the right counselor for you. My standard fee is $40 per hour, with a sliding scale fee option depending on your financial situation. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

    I look forward to hearing from you and hope we can work together!
