AMALIA GREENE, LCSW
Individual therapy, adapted for your needs.
I care about your well-being and want to provide you with all the tools you need to manage even the most challenging and traumatic circumstances.
In therapy, we will build a collaborative relationship in order to facilitate the growth process. I believe we all possess the inner wisdom needed to move through challenges in our lives, but sometimes we need extra support in order to connect with that wisdom and take action toward positive change.
My primary treatment modality is trauma-informed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which is a form of treatment that focuses on the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and actions. Additionally, I utilize EMDR (EMDRIA-approved level I and II training completed) to target specific traumatic experiences and reduce reactivity to present-day triggers.
I work to support transgender and nonbinary individuals by networking with OHSU and participating in continuing education through the Brave Space community in Portland.
I also integrate aspects of feminist/empowerment theory, assertiveness training, nonviolent communication techniques, mindfulness skills, narrative therapy, motivational interviewing, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy(DBT) skill building, and creative arts. Above all else, I work to value and honor the therapeutic relationship and tailor my approach to each individual I see.
