Douglas W Pullin, LCSW, LPC, LLC, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Portland
Do you feel stuck in patterns that lead to stress, conflict, and/or withdrawal from life? Are you struggling with anger, fear, or sadness? Are you dissatisfied with life and don't know why? Having the courage to admit that things aren't going well is the first step to changing them. My mindfulness-based approach supports you in being less identified with habitual ways of thinking and feeling that can keep you stuck in patterns that no longer work for you. I have helped many clients learn to be less reactive and more compassionate with themselves and others.
My general approach to therapy is collaborative, mindfulness-based, and interactive. I have received training in: acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, family systems therapy, narrative therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), scientifically based relationship therapy, mindfulness-based body centered therapy, and mindfulness meditation.
I am a seasoned therapist providing body centered mindfulness-based therapy services in Portland since 1990. I have extensive experience providing supervision to therapists. I meet the requirements for supervising LCSW and LPC candidates.Please email me or give me a call. I am happy to answer questions.

Douglas W Pullin's Groups

An Introduction to Self Compassion

This retreat will focus on the three key components of self-compassion: self-kindness, a sense of common humanity, and balanced, mindful awareness. Kindness opens our hearts to suffering, so we can give ourselves what we need. Common humanity opens us to others, so that we know we aren't alone. Mindfulness opens us to the present moment, so we can accept our experience with ease. We will do meditation practices that cultivate mindfulness, kindness and a sense of our shared humanity. There will be periods of instruction and sitting, walking and movement meditation.
