ABOUT THE PRACTICE
Portland Mental Health & Wellness is a collaboration among psychologists, naturopathic physicians, counselors and our trainees.
We work with people first, diagnoses second. We understand the constraints of a health care system that accommodates specific diagnosis focused therapy. We are able to work within that system but take extra care to allow for the gradual unfolding and blossoming that takes place as a matter of course in therapy.
We believe that everyone has an innate propensity for self-realization just as we are.
We deliberately refer to those we work with as patients because the origins of the word patient refer to “sufferer.” This is consistent with our values that though as clinicians bring skills and expertise, we are all first and foremost fellow sufferers working our way through the world.
