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. When I'm not practicing counseling, I enjoy traveling with my husband and spending time on our farm gardening, sewing, baking, and spending time chasing after all of our animals.
I've lived in many places before settling back in Oregon, including bustling cities and in-the-middle-of-nowhere towns. My travels have allowed me to meet people from all walks of life, to try my hand at different jobs, and to experience different cultures, ideas, and perspectives. Though I loved my time living in all different places, it's nice to be home.
I love that I'm back in the Portland area, living in the community that I grew up in, and now being able to give a little back to the place that I call home.
