Max Wilson

Licensed Professional Counselor Intern

I believe we all have the ability to connect and grow, that we can experience healing, both individually, relationally, and collectively. As a direct and relational therapist I view therapy as a container to learn about ourselves, to show up as we are and find choice in the life that awaits us.

My Approach

I help people on their journey to find connection that feels nourishing and interconnected in their relationships. I use theories of Attachment, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness/Somatic to guide me in my counseling approach.(EFT) is a researched based approach based on attachment that helps provide a framework for healing in relationships. We will begin to understand the cycles you get caught in and slowly allow more space to notice what is happening in those moments.  I will begin to help you find different patterns of relating and regulation/co-regulation.  Mindfulness & somatic approaches allow me to help slow down the process as we get curious about what is happening for you in the moment. Being aware of what is happening in your body, and in the present moment, allows us to discover deeper layers of your experience.

My Background

I have a Master's degree focusing on Relationships and Individuals from Portland State University. I am a Licensed Professional Counseling Intern and a Nationally Certified Counselor. I have been trained in the therapeutic modalities of Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples and Hakomi/Somatic orientated work. I work from a trauma informed lens and work from an anti-racist, sex-positive, pro-disability justice, kink positive, fat positive, queer-friendly, polyam-friendly, strengths based perspective. I identify as queer & non-binary, use gender neutral pronouns, and experience & express my gender in various ways.
