Magda Permut, PhD, Psychologist in Portland
Impossible is temporary. As a relational psychologist specializing in issues like trauma and addictions, I have learned this time and time again. The combination of a supportive relationship, motivation to change well-worn patterns, and clear, concrete guidance can lead to changes far beyond what people believe is possible. Sometimes it seems "impossible" to live a deeper, more connected existence. We may carry scars of rejection and betrayal that keep us from being our truest selves. We heal in the context of genuine, warm, accepting relationships that also encourage us to take risks. I so enjoy building these relationships.
I specialize in treating PTSD, addiction, depression, and anxiety. My work often includes a mindfulness approach and I will teach you skills based on leading edge research. I use evidence-based therapies including functional analytic psychotherapy (FAP), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), prolonged exposure (PE), and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).
As a therapist and a human, I commit to "walking my talk:" embodying the values of awareness courage and love that my clients practice in our work together. I also work to strengthen and build healthy community through groups and trainings, such as my meetup group:
