Gia Buckberg

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I have been supporting people in a variety of ways for many years as a social worker, parent educator and as community volunteer in mental health. My goal is to encourage your strengths while being honest, direct and objective about the things that hold you back.

My Approach

My hope is to work with individuals in transition who want to see results, be inspired to go further distances and reclaim their internal joy. Many of my clients come to me feeling professionally stuck or too anxious to address and tease out what it is that they truly want more of in their lives. My approach is intuitive and insightful. I listen intently and fully and appreciate humor and candor in our sessions. My approach is essentially eclectic. I honor that we as humans are unique individuals that may benefit greatly from a myriad of therapeutic supports. I often incorporate elements of CBT, solution-focused therapy and a life coaching approach into my practice. I have found the outdoor beauty of the Pacific Northwest to be incredibly healing. This inspiration has led me to offer the opportunity to conduct our sessions in the outdoors or in the office.

My Background

I have a MSW from the University of Minnesota and am licensed to practice clinical social work in Oregon. I have worked in a myriad of treatment facilities including residential, inpatient and outpatient centers. As a practitioner in private practice, many of my clients are challenged by life transitions, changes in their family dynamic or those who are generally feeling stuck where they are currently at in their lives. I believe that the therapeutic process is a collaborative one and I find this to be one of the most fulfilling elements of our authentic work together.
