As a therapist, Gracie (they/she) understands the value of being heard and understood. They are in their first year as a pre-licensed counselor.
They use compassion and empathy in a person centered, relational approach that focuses on meeting clients where they are. They use a holistic lens with multicultural and social justice considerations to understand the contexts in which clients live their lives. Gracie helps clients address the multitude of factors that affect one’s overall physical, economic, social, spiritual, and emotional health. They cultivate a nonjudgmental space where clients can explore deeper feelings, values, and relationships through acceptance and authenticity. Their theoretical views also include harm reduction, body neutrality, and mindfulness in a LGBTQIA+ affirming and trauma-informed approach. Gracie has experience working with domestic violence survivors, adolescents, and young adults as they navigate various life transitions, mood disorders, and their own personal identities.
Gracie enjoys spending time with their dog, Lizard, exploring Portland’s many cafes and art studios, and taking trips to the coast.
