What We Do
At Portland Psychotherapy, rather than trying to be something for everyone, we seek to specialize in what we do best and offer services that relate to those areas of practice. Several of our therapists are also researchers, which means that we stay up-to-date on what the research says about what works. If we can’t provide what we think is the best treatment for you, we will do our best to refer you to an appropriate provider in the community. As a local hub for evidence-based practice, we know many of the local providers and take pride in being able to provide the best referrals possible.

Portland Psychotherapy has a team of anxiety specialists who work together to provide the very best treatment for a variety of anxiety disorders. Many anxiety disorders to not respond to typical talk therapy and require specialized, structured treatments that have been specifically developed for anxiety disorders. Our staff are trained in many of these treatments and several are involved in scientific research that keeps them aware of the latest information.
We believe that the best therapy is both an art and a science. Evidence-based therapy is about using the best of what science has to offer to inform treatment. We are constantly educating ourselves about what the research says and combining that with heart and our personal experience to offer the best services. While no therapy is going be effective all of the time, using evidence-based practices maximizes the chance of a successful outcome.
