Holistic Healing PDX is a counseling practice that addresses mental health from the mind, body, and spirit.
For those who have experienced chronic and long lasting effects of trauma, access to multifaceted treatment is vital in the path to long lasting wellness. Through community partnerships, we aid our clients in accessing other trauma informed healing providers who perform supporting services, such as naturopathic medicine, acupuncture, massage therapy, and movement. Our vision is to create a healthier, more trauma informed community by focusing on healing the whole person—mind, body, and spirit.
Equity & Empowerment
We believe in the incredible healing power of embracing and celebrating each client’s intersecting identities. We strive to provide equitable and empowering care for folks who have experienced oppression. We celebrate the diversity of identities and experiences that exist in our community, and advocate for supporting a climate of increased resources for those who have experienced high degrees of trauma.
Honoring the Self
We honor that each client is the expert and author of their own story. We believe that each person possesses their own intuitive wisdom that points to their unique path to healing
Those who have been most traumatized are often the ones most in need of additional support. We strive to use our resources to offer limited scholarships for community members in need.
Treating the Whole Person
We know that trauma impacts not only the mind, but the body, spirit, and our ability to form meaningful connections to others. We believe that healing is a truly holistic process that needs to be pursued through multiple treatment approaches including but not limited to: mental health counseling, body work, medicine, social connection, and spirituality.
We are committed to partnerships with community members who support other forms of health as a means of building a network for our clients to access trauma informed health care at every opportunity.
So often trauma occurs in the context of relationships, which would imply that the same goes for healing. We have a passion for helping folks who have experienced trauma and/or difficult childhood experiences to heal, reconnect to a sense of safety within themselves, and find the freedom to pursue a meaningful life. We emphasize the role of the therapeutic relationship in our work. We are committed to providing a relationship with warmth, compassion, and trust at its core. We strive to provide folks with a space to be heard, respected, and empowered.
