Elizabeth Knutsen

Clinical Social Work Associate

In our work together we will create a safe space for you to be your most authentic self. My clinical focus is working with sex workers and those in sexual fringe populations. In our work together know that I will never shame you for the ways you navigate this capitalistic world.

My Approach

My approach to therapy is to work with you to identify the pieces of yourself that need to be seen and integrate them with the self. We will also explore the systems of oppression that exist in our world and how to navigate those systems. My work is accomplished through a variation of somatic work that taps in to your polyvagal nervous system combined with IFS therapy and Mindfulness.

My Background

I am a masters level social worker completing certification as a licensed clinical social worker in Oregon. I have spent my career working in both Illinois and Oregon. I have developed my skills of empathy working with domestic violence survivors and geriatric populations.
