Katharine M. Doel, MSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Portland
Do you seek a place where you can feel safe enough to express worrying emotions, thoughts, and experiences that you may not typically reveal? Are you finding it difficult to resolve and manage these issues on your own? I offer a secure space for working on a range of issues and symptoms. My style is collaborative, curious, and empathic. I listen carefully and we work together to explore and make sense of what you are experiencing. This deeper awareness can result in an inner freedom, improved relationships, and more satisfying ways of living.
The role of the therapeutic relationship is central to my approach. It serves as an instrument for you to learn about yourself in the here and now of the treatment, and also offers an experience of a new and different type relationship. This can be healing in itself.
I have pursued postgraduate training in psychodynamic/ psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Research shows improvements from this approach are lasting. I am also proficient in French and able to provide linguistically sensitive therapy to individuals for whom English is a second language and who may have lived much of their earlier life in a different language.
