Robin Friedman, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Portland
Are you looking good on the outside, but struggling on the inside? I offer a safe and supportive place where you have permission to be fully yourself as we explore the challenges that bring you to therapy. Many of us find ourselves longing for greater joy, inspiration, connection, trust, self worth, and deeper meaning in our lives. With skill, compassion and deep listening, I provide opportunities for you to heal the past and gain skills, insights, and experiences for making lasting positive change. EMDR trained.
My style is genuine, collaborative, honest, positive, creative, interactive and down to earth. As a seasoned therapist, I utilize a variety of effective approaches tailored to celebrate and discover your unique strengths, needs, and goals. Life brings us challenges, but you do not have to be alone on the journey.
The right fit between therapist and client is key, therefore, I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to answer your questions, learn what brings you to therapy, and discover together whether we're a good match. For more information please go to (EMDR trained)
