Rhys Pasimio

Licensed Professional Counselor

I've lived in the Portland area for 12 years. I enjoy yoga, bouldering, cycling, black tea and good science fiction. My favorite parts about counseling are hearing people's stories, and seeing them overcome obstacles in order to thrive!

My Approach

My approach to healing is holistic and integrated. People are complex and multi-faceted...and so are their problems! All the elements need to be treated together. At New Pattern, I specialize in a dual diagnosis approach to Addictions and Mental Health disorders. Most of the time when there is a chemical or behavior addiction, there is depression or anxiety or trauma fueling the behavior. Likewise, many times pre-existing depression, anxiety or trauma lead us to cope in destructive ways using alcohol, drugs, porn and unhealthy sex to escape the feelings. I believe that all these experiences are connected and will be most effectively treated when they are addressed together.

My Background

I hold a Master of Arts in Counseling from Multnomah University. Major coursework included Integration of Psychology and Spirituality with emphases on Addictions Recovery and Social Concern. I completed additional coursework through Daystar Academy to earn my credential as Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor II. My graduate internship was at the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center, providing individual and group counseling. My post-graduate practice was at Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare providing dual diagnosis counseling. As a licensed professional, I practiced with Western Psychological & Counseling Services and taught in the Master of Arts Counseling Program at Multnomah University, prior to starting New Pattern Counseling.
