Andrew Elmore, MSW,CSWA

We often find ourselves stuck in unfulfilling patterns. Disappointed with ourselves, our friends, partners, families - we seek ways to cope, not thrive. Talking through these challenges with an intuitive, empathic therapist is a helpful way to move forward.

My Approach

We begin our lives in relationships. We grow organically with whom we are connected-our parents, guardians, teachers, siblings, friends... From these intricate relationships we cultivate self-acceptance, effective communication, healthy coping skills, and trust. In many of our lives these areas have been neglected or damaged. As your therapist, we will create treatment goals that build upon your strengths. Whether you are depressed, anxious, lonely or have reoccurring conflict with partners, family or friends- we will find what works while using our time to implement strategies to change what does not.

My Background

I hold a Master's Degree in Clinical Social Work from the University of Chicago. This innovative clinical program provided opportunities to explore the evolving concepts of effective therapeutic interventions. My training and 15 years of practice experience affords me the ability to design an approach that incorporates your specific needs. I have had the privilege of working with a varied client base of individuals, couples and families; I am an affirming clinician that supports all gender identities and orientations. I am a registered clinician with the Oregon Board of Licensed Clinical Social Workers and for your convenience, have close-in Eastside and Westside locations.
