Maya Klein, Ph.D.
Child, Adolescent, and Adult Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis
Thank you for visiting my site. I am a licensed psychologist in the states of Oregon (OR 2901) and California (CA 26592). I provide psychotherapy and psychoanalysis with adults, adolescents, and children at my office in the Northwest neighborhood of Portland. Having been formally trained in child and adult psychoanalysis, I help individuals understand and work through life patterns that have, or continue to have, frustrating or disappointing outcomes. The invaluable work of confronting these road blocks, and safely moving through them with another person can result a stronger sense of self esteem, improved relationships, and a revitalized capacity to work and love.
Although I help people through a wide of range of difficulties, my specialties include working with children and adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, abuse or other trauma, shame and self-esteem, disruptions in development, stage of life transitions, and relationship difficulties. I truly offer something unique and comprehensive, so that you or your child can experience a sense of emotional freedom and feel less encumbered by events of the past. To learn more about my practice, and the process of psychoanalysis or psychotherapy please feel free to explore my website or contact me for more information about scheduling a consultation.
