Rachael Patoray, LPC, ATR

Licensed Professional Counselor

Often times, it's difficult to identify, much less express how you're feeling by just using words. As an art therapist, I provide creative alternatives to help you explore, express, and heal…at any age!

My Approach

You are unique, as we all are, and therefore deserve an approach that is tailor-made to fit your emotional & mental health needs. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Registered Art Therapist (ATR), Brainspotting Practitioner & EMDR Practitioner, with an office located in SE Portland, Oregon. Within my practice, I focus on treating trauma, grief, anxiety/depression/mental health diagnosis, chronic illness, stuckness, and self-discovery. Sometimes we live with feelings that pop up when we least expect them to, and then we shove them back down until they show up again. A large part of my job is to help you address these feelings in a safe and supportive environment. I provide "regular" talk therapy and I teach you tools that you can use in your daily life. I use Art Therapy & Brainspotting to help you identify, explore, & express yourself. You will have insight into your life, allowing for changes so that you can finally heal. Change really can happen!

My Background

I'm a native Oregonian (though I've lived in many places, big & small, throughout the USA) but I'm happy to be back "home". I'm an artist, first and foremost. I realized through my own journey, that art not only allowed me to express myself, but it allowed me to understand myself a little better too! I use art in my practice to help you do the same; to explore, understand, and heal. I do not expect artistic perfection, that is not what art therapy is about! It's about providing you another way to understand and express who you are, at any age! I received my Masters in Art Therapy/Counseling at Southwestern College in Santa Fe, NM. I'm a registered art therapist (ATR) and a licensed professional counselor (LPC). I am trained in Brainspotting, which is similar to EMDR and has had amazing results in regards to clearing out trauma. I am also trained in EMDR.
