Relational Somatic Psychotherapy in Portland, OR and Oakland, CA

Miranda York, OR LMFT T1469, CA LMFT 100415

Recent neuroscience confirms that we are all hard wired to heal and transform, given the right conditions. Together, we will work to honor this potential in order to release the natural capacity for healing within your body, mind, and spirit. Rather than trying to find something that is wrong with you, I respect the ways in which you may have adapted to survive and cope with difficult circumstances in the past. My practice is somatic and relational, and I specialize in working with people who’ve experienced emotional, sexual, and physical trauma. I work with adult individuals, couples, and adolescents. I offer sessions in person in Portland, OR throughout the week and once a month on the weekends in Oakland, CA. I also offer online therapy.

I offer therapy for teens and adolescents in my Portland, OR location only. I have special experience and knowledge working with teens who might identify with any of the following words (but not limited to the following):

  • gender questioning, gender fabulous, agender, gender queer

  • femme, trans feminine

  • trans masculine

  • androgynous

  • queer, lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, gray sexual

I spent 4 years working in a residential, dual diagnosis treatment center for teenagers struggling with substance abuse and mental health issues. I have experience helping teenagers navigate the rough waters of adolescence that can be both exciting and terrifying. Issues around fitting in, struggling with bullying, self worth, and finding one’s identity can be so challenging while simultaneously trying to juggle the pressures of preparing for college and/or impending independence. This can be confusing and often the last person a teenager wants to or feels they can turn to is a parent. Having one caring and engaged adult who is non biased and outside of the family unit can often permanently shift the course of life at this crucial turning point.

 Issues I treat with teens in my practice include:

  • self worth, self esteem

  • neurodiversity, autism spectrum

  • questions and confusion about sexuality or gender identity

  • issues with substance use

  • bullying

  • general anxiety and depression
