I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Registered Art Therapist (ATR), Certified Brainspotting Practitioner, and EMDR Therapist (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). My office is located in Southeast Portland, Oregon, just off of Division Street on 26th and Clinton Street. I provide individualized therapy for teens and adults. Within my practice, I focus on treating trauma, anxiety/depression, negative patterns/stuckness, life changes, and self-discovery.
Making that first phone call or email for help is tough, but I encourage you to make that first step. My job is to help guide you through this process and make it as easy as possible, so that change can begin. You can contact me by phone or email, or via my online contact form, whichever is easiest for you! Your call and email are confidential. I look forward to speaking with you to answer any questions you may have, and to schedule a time to meet.
My name is Rachael Patoray, and I am a Native Oregonian. I was raised in this community, and now live in Boring Oregon with my husband on our little farm. I am a licensed professional counselor and hold a graduate degree in art therapy/counseling. I have experience working with youth and families, both inpatient and in the community. I am currently working as a private practice counselor in the Division/Clinton area in Southeast Portland. As an art therapist, I use creativity and art making as a tool, to enhance the therapeutic work that takes place within the counseling session.
