Richard Nalbandian, MA, Doctoral Psychology Student

Individual, Couple and Group Therapy with Adults

Practices at Division and Sandy

My name is Ricky Nalbandian, and I am a doctoral-level student therapist at Portland Mental Health & Wellness. I earned my master’s degree in clinical psychology at George Fox University. I am currently under the supervision of Camille Curry, PsyD, a licensed psychologist.

My approach to psychotherapy focuses on the therapeutic relationship. I see therapy as a collaborative project between the two of us, working together to create space for new patterns to emerge and to increase one’s capacity to reflect. Theoretically, I orient myself from a relational psychoanalytic perspective. This form of therapy cultivates a space to know a person more deeply—not only understanding the distressing symptoms but also the underlying wounds. Moving through the world is a complex endeavor:  I seek to fashion a non-judgmental environment to aid in more fully understanding one’s experience.

Over the course of my clinical training, I have worked with individuals of various ages, race, socio-economic, and religious backgrounds. I enjoy working with adults in individual, group, and couples in therapy, and see my work as an authentic encounter and an invitation to journey together.
