Focused Psychotherapy
for a Focused You

Nathan has received training in the evidence based practices of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure with Response Prevention (ERP). He is committed to creating a collaborative space in which client and counselor can work together to cultivate change. His approach is informed by his values and qualities of empathy, authenticity, openness, and social justice. Nathan believes in gently challenging clients and pushing them outside of their comfort zones while focusing on and acknowledging their sources of strength and resiliency. 

Nathan started his academic journey in Southern California, where he went on to receive his Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from California State University, Fullerton. Following this, he moved to Portland to pursue an education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Lewis & Clark. Nathan has extensive experience working with neurodiverse populations, specifically ADHD & ASD. Nathan is also familiar in working with Anxiety, OCD, Panic, and Phobias. 

When Nathan is free from the responsibilities of life, he enjoys heading out on adventures, staying active, and engaging in the joys of competition.
