***I am not currently accepting new clients.***
In my role as CEO at Portland Psychotherapy, my time is split between supporting the mission of the business and conducting scientific research.
As a researcher, I study the social effects of emotions, particularly among people who are prone to feel shame or highly self-critical. This includes topics like stigma, shame, compassion, social anxiety, ostracism, belonging, and loneliness. I also study psychedelics assisted therapy as applied to these types of difficulties. I also host the Research Matters Podcast, a show where I interview great researchers about how they do their thing.
Here are some resources related to my work and the research we do at Portland Psychotherapy:
