William Venturelli, LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor
I'm William and I run Atma Counseling in Portland OR. I specialize in working with adults searching for meaning and clarity as they contemplate making life changes. These changes can cause anxiety, which we immediately want to suppress, but what if we used anxiety to fuel curiosity about our lives?
- Individual Therapy
- Individual Therapy
I primarily work from a person-centered, existential-humanistic (EH) approach, where other modalities can be utilized in a way that is tailored by both of us. EH is less rigid and more philosophical than other approaches, it values the freedom and personal responsibility of each person, as well as each person's capacity for self-healing. At times, the therapeutic process may require an exploration of the past, at other times, a sharp focus on what's happening in the moment. Together, we will go deeper than developing simple coping strategies and just treating symptoms, together we will explore your unique lived experience, and in the process, you will gain a better understanding of yourself and be inspired to live the life you want.
I hold a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and an undergraduate degree in Psychology with a minor in Philosophy. I specialize in helping people explore their lives in a non-judgmental way. Ideally, this exploration will lead to greater acceptance and awareness of the tools for growth you already possess. I have worked in various community mental health settings serving adults, adolescents, and children. I have completed certificate training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Gestalt approaches. I am a nationally certified counselor, and a member of the American Counseling Association.
