Rain Estrada, LPC intern
Philosophy and Approach: During our time together, we will work towards deepening your understanding of yourself, developing self-compassion, and self-acceptance. Coming from a strengths-based perspective, I believe that clients have the knowledge to grow and move forward already within themselves. My role as a therapist is to provide optimal therapeutic conditions that will allow for deep exploration and be of support to you through your change process. My theoretical approach to therapy is humanistic and client-centered. I take social context into account in therapy- both in conceptualizing your emotional/psychological distress and in our therapeutic relationship- meaning that we will address systematic oppression in therapy. I acknowledge that therapists function in an oppressive system, and am committed to lessening the power differential and minimizing potential for harm in our relationship.
Formal Education and Training: I have a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from New Mexico State University. I am currently working towards my Oregon professional counseling license (LPC R6138). I completed my graduate internship at a school-based health center and at an outpatient clinic where I provided therapy to students and adults. I most recently worked at a mental health crisis line where I provided emotional support and consultation to folks experiencing challenges in navigating mental health. My area of interest is in working with Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous People of Color (QTBIPOC). I am genderqueer and Latinx and am so happy to work at the intersection of mental health and the QTBIPOC community as our healing is justice.
As a supervisee of a licensee of the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists, I will abide by its Code of Ethics. I am under the ongoing supervision of Ryan Loiselle, LPC who reviews my cases with me. You may contact my supervisor at 503-374-2901.
