MitChell Passadore, professional Counselor assoCiate

 CURRENT OPENINGS! In-person & Telehealth

I believe that anyone can benefit from counseling and that no matter where a person starts, they deserve respect and care. I am here to help people live better lives and uncover patterns in thoughts and behaviors that might be causing distress. For this process to be most helpful, it is important to find someone who fits well with who you already are. My goal is to help facilitate positive, lasting change and I believe that there is a counselor out there who can help make that happen.

I was trained in Portland at Lewis & Clark’s graduate school of education and counseling. I have specific training in treatment for anxiety disorders, PTSD, addiction, depression, and trauma utilizing principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure Response Prevention (ERP), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) in both individual and group settings.

“…the act of revealing oneself fully to another and still being accepted may be the major vehicle of therapeutic help.”

Irvin Yalom, The Gift of Therapy

 

I am from Lake Oswego and have lived in the Portland area my whole life besides four years at the University of Oregon in Eugene studying psychology. I love basketball, food, animals, gardening, cars, and being outside. I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world and love connecting with people from different backgrounds. It is easy for me to find beauty all around me and I feel lucky to call Oregon my home.

If you are feeling ready to take the first step (it’s okay if you are feeling a little anxious) and trust that we can do this together, please contact our admin team!
