Individual, Couple and Group Therapy with Adults
Hello, my name is Greg Arbo and I am a student therapist under the supervision of Camille Curry, PsyD, in my fourth year as a PsyD student at Pacific University. The bulk of my training thus far has been within the realm of health psychology and of yoga psychology. I practice with a holistic mindset, as I believe that each layer of ourselves must be nurtured in order for us as human beings to flourish. The first layer is our physical body (nutrition, sleep, etc.); the second is our mental and emotional mind (mood, affect, thought, etc.); the third is our social environment (occupation, support network, etc.); the fourth layer is our cultural lifestyle (beliefs, values, morals, etc.). With patients, I seek to facilitate the awareness of and the integration between mind and body, using yoga psychology, gestalt, and CBT techniques. I have experience working with a wide range of oppressive life experiences individuals are faced with; general life distress, acute and chronic pain, depression, relationship difficulties, anxiety, and trauma are a few of these experiences I have worked with most frequently.
I currently practice as a yoga therapist at the Pacific Psychology and Comprehensive Health Clinic, where I lead individual and group yoga therapy sessions, which are process-oriented and are an opportunity for individuals to explore all layers of themselves through movement. I also practice as a behavioral health consultant at the National University of Natural Medicine, where I work with patients through a strengths-based model to help each patient discover skillful ways of approaching oppressive life experiences. At Portland Mental Health, I endeavor to continue this work of facilitating each patient’s growth through mind-body integration and awareness.
