Greg Newman, LCSW
I was born overseas because my family worked in the US state department but moved to Portland before my fifth birthday and consider myself a lifelong Oregonian. I was an energetic, perhaps a bit too energetic, child who struggled with academics often due to not being able to keep my behind in a classroom seat for very long. I spent my early adulthood pursuing the dream of and worked hard at becoming a rockstar (what do you know, that didn't happen). After spending the first part of my adulthood raising a child and doing various kinds of physical labor and factory work I realized I was more suited for something else. And that "something else" was relating to people. Human beings have always fascinated me as a source of continuous curiosity and wonderment. And this wonderment only increases my compassion and empathy for my fellow humans. All of this led me to volunteering and eventually getting my education in clinical social work which is the work that I've been doing for the last 25 years.
I specialize in Adolescents and adults as well as extensive experience in family work. Crisis and trauma focused. A significant amount of working with individuals struggling with anxiety and depression. My primary therapeutic concern is developing a trusting, well boundaries relationship with my clients to enable them to feel safe, explore, and develop positive change in their lives. Modalities I use include; Trauma informed modalities emphasizing relational connection. Deep mindfulness and somatic work, CBT, DBT, Family systems, narrative therapy, and solution focused approaches.
Eva Siegel, MSW, CSWA
In my practice, I seek to create a safe, non-judgmental, and collaborative environment for my clients to start their healing journey. Healing is a complex, painful, and transformative process that every person is capable of. I believe that healing happens through relationships and I strive to support my clients by celebrating their gifts, processing their experiences, and strengthening their inherent skills so they can pursue their aspirations and live a joyful life. I approach my work with an open mind, compassion, and transparency to meet my clients where they are at. I believe that people are the experts of their own lives and I am here to offer guidance and hold space for my clients as they continue on their journey of self-discovery and growth.
My life experiences have led me down a path of healing that is unique and special to me. I learned how to bring art, music, nature, and mindfulness in conjunction with my educational training to create a practice that aligns with my authentic self. I enjoy working with people who are interested in deepening their sense of self and are willing to take risks to learn about their innermost workings. I am passionate about holistic healing and bring my knowledge of Somatic Experiencing into my work to support my clients with connecting their minds and body to their experiences. I also lean into Attachment styles, Family Systems, and Motivational Interviewing to empower my clients to better understand themselves and their relationships. I utilize strengths-based and trauma-informed approaches in my work to create space for each of my clients to feel seen and appreciated for all that they are.
I primarily work with teens and adults but also have experience working with children and families. Before I started my CSWA license I was a community-based social worker for 10 years providing in-home services to systems involving youth and families. My years of community-based work taught me valuable skills that strengthen my therapeutic orientation and passion for my work. Throughout my practice, I apply the social work values of equity, advocacy, and empathy and root my practice in social justice. I am on a lifelong learning and unlearning journey surrounding my involvement in white supremacy culture and the impacts of my identities. I am committed to providing a culturally responsive practice and strive to continuously participate in learning how we can collectively heal as a community.
I specialize in Self-Care, Attachment Styles, Parenting, Relationship Dynamics, Self Love. Modalities I use include; Mindfulness, Attachment-Based, Motivational Interviewing, Trauma-Informed Care, Family Systems, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy.
