Red Hart-Smith, LPC Associate
Philosophy and Approach: I believe in person-centered care and the potential for all humans to create lives they can feel proud of. I aspire to flatten traditional client/provider hierarchies and create therapeutic relationships based in client strengths and goals. I employ an eclectic approach which integrates client-centered, strength-based modalities through a feminist lens; cognitive behavioral interventions provide an evidence based approach to psychoeducation and skill-acquisition.
Formal Education and Training: I am a Nationally Certified Counselor and I hold a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Vermont. I completed my clinical internship as a counselor at Champlain College. I additionally received a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Smith College. I have worked as a behavioral interventionist with children in a residential setting, as a residential counselor with young adults transitioning from the foster care system, as a case manager with parents receiving state benefits and mental health services, as a residential counselor in an adult substance use treatment facility, as a clinician in a crisis respite program, and as a counselor in a community mental health organization.
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.
