My name is Dr. Thaen Saelee, PsyD

Dually licensed in the state of Oregon and California. 

I'm an eclectic therapist trained in many evidence-based, holistic, and indigenous healing practices from my professional and lived experiences. With a wide ranging tool box, I’ve been successful in treating individuals with symptoms of trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, life stressors, identity concerns, family issues and addictive behaviors. I have been a counselor for over 14 years and a third-culture psychologist. I see race-based and systemic trauma and work with individuals who identify with these communities. I am neurodivergent and LGBTQI affirming therapist.

My speciality is trauma work. I'm a EMDR Certified Therapist. I used a mixture of somatic awareness, mindfulness stress reduction training, motivational interviewing, acceptance commitment therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy to support my individual's in our work together.

Folx who have worked with me state that I am a safe space for them to understand their hurts, and parts of themselves that need healing.

My name is Charity McSperitt, LCSW

I believe strongly that people can and do change. People have the capacity to develop new skills and behaviors to improve their circumstances even in the face of overwhelming events. In my practice, I use a person-centered approach guided by the client. I strive to help people develop healthier thoughts and behaviors to move toward their goal(s). I work to create a safe and non-judgmental environment for people to explore issues related to anxiety, depression, relationships, life transitions, trauma, and more. I am eclectic in my work and strive to adjust my practice to meet the needs of the person I am working with. Some of the modalities I utilize are psychoeducation, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy skills, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. In my work, I have helped and supported people who are struggling with substance abuse, trauma survivors, and people experiencing chronic pain and anxiety. I have had the pleasure of working with people who are veterans, Native Americans, and members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
