Ellen Summers, PhD, Psychologist in Portland
My goal is to help you live the life you want. I will help you free yourself from anxieties and painful depression whether a result of past trauma or current situations or events. Whether your difficulties are in relationships, the world of work, or your relationship to yourself, I will work with you to help you understand yourself and to make healthy, active choices growing out of this self awareness.
I have 20 years of experience as a psychologist. While the starting point of my work is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I will assess your needs and fashion my treatment tools to fit your individual needs in order to most effectively help you to live the life you want.
