My name is Caretia (KA-ree-sha) (she/her) and I am am located in Portland, Oregon. I am licensed in both Washington and Oregon. I see clients virtual and in person.
I am a certified Somatic Experiencing Practioner (SEP). I have been trained psychodynamically, and in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS), Psychodynamic Approach and Whole Brain Child, ARISE intervention model and Motivational Interviewing. I specialize in childhood development, anxiety, neurodiversity, trauma focused and trauma informed care. I aim to practice with humility, inclusivity and welcome and encourage ongoing feedback.
I have been a therapist for over 20 years and, all these years later, I still enjoy being a therapist and supporting people in their journey. I have supported folks through exploring their self-identities, healing from trauma, working through anxiety, depression, grief, loss, life stages and building connections within their communities. I value transparency, humor, humility, integrity, honesty and mutual respect. I am present for my clients and I maintain a schedule that allows for flexible scheduling and regularly scheduled appointments.
I believe in healing and ultimately, I believe people find their way through even the most difficult, dark times in their lives when they have support. We all need fresh perspective and guidance from time-to-time and therapy is a great way to show up and grow.
