Joe Rhinewine, PhD, Psychologist in Portland
People collaborate with me to live life more fully: with passion, vigor, and satisfaction. How do you want to live your life? What do you want to be able to write in your autobiography when you are very old? Those are the things I want to help you to make happen in your life. My therapy style is warm, supportive, genuine and direct. In the service of what's most important to you, I offer a broad range of skills and exercises that you can learn and immediately apply to your life.
My primary approach is called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which helps people face and overcome difficulties in a more constructive way, moving forward to a fulfilling life. ACT is a kind of cognitive-behavioral therapy, and has received considerable support in scientific studies verifying its effectiveness.
I have specializations in chronic pain, anxiety and anger problems, and spiritual / existential concerns. I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese and have specific knowledge of Buddhist spirituality and world-views. I also offer psychological diagnostic evaluations and intellectual ("IQ") testing for children, adolescents and adults.

Joe Rhinewine's Groups

Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation

This four-week class is perfect for absolute beginners, or a wonderful refresher, even if you have a longstanding mindfulness meditation practice. We will explore many tools of mindfulness including sitting meditation and application to everyday life. We draw upon current behavioral psychology as an aid to breaking mindfulness meditation down into 4 teachable/learnable skill sets that can be applied anytime throughout your day. This class serves as good preparation for our other classes; it is strongly suggested as prequisite for our intermediate course, and Tuesday evening mindfulness meditation group. See for dates & times.
