Dr. Anne Perry, Psy.D. (she/her/hers)

I have a very collaborative and interpersonal style and consider the work of therapy as a journey to walk alongside you. I believe the purpose of therapy is to enhance your internal wisdom so you can operate in a more full and authentic fashion, and to help focus on making satisfying and meaningful choices. I work from an attachment-based lens informed by internal family systems and AEDP, and I also use EMDR to address trauma. 

I have been trained in mindfulness based empirically supported interventions as well, an interweave this into treatment to enhance personal coping tools.  I specialize in PTSD, Anxiety, Relationship Issues, Perinatal or Postpartum Issues, Adjustment to Parenthood, Pregnancy Loss, Grief, Depression, Bipolar Disorder and Infertility Issues.

The healing process of therapy can result in an increase in self-esteem, an improved outlook, a greater sense of control or calmness, decreased pain and better self understanding. 

I received my Bachelors Degree in Psychology and Sociology from Vanderbilt University, my Masters Degree in General Psychology from Boston University and my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Pacific University in Oregon.  I completed my predoctoral internship at the Loma Linda University Behavioral Medicine Center and my postdoc at the Kaiser Permanente Chronic Pain Management Program in San Francisco. I see individuals 18+.

Dr. Amanda Weaver, Psy.D. (she/her/hers)

I provide individual and couples therapy to people who may be struggling, feeling stuck, or wanting to engage in general self/relational exploration. I enjoy working individually with young and emerging adults (16+) as I consider this to be a unique time in which one is trying to figure out who they are. This already challenging process can feel harder when you have experienced trauma, struggle with anxiety and/or depression, have strained relationships, or struggle with self-esteem. Therapy can provide you with a space to process through these experiences and help you find some relief. While I have specialization in working with young adults, these dynamics can be present throughout the lifespan, especially during times of transition. If it feels like we would be a good fit, I welcome the opportunity to work with older adults as well! 

I also provide therapy to couples and other relationship styles, including polyamory and ethical non-monogamy. I believe all relationships can be hard because each individual brings the ghosts of their past relationships, along with their individual psychologies, to their current relationship while also navigating life stressors. Therapy can provide a space to process through current and past concerns with a neutral party, increase insight into your relational patterns and dynamics, improve communication, and help create the kind of relationship you would like to have.

I see therapy as a non-judgmental place where we can come together and be curious about what is prompting you to seek therapy. Through being curious, we can work towards getting relief from your most pressing problems and gain insight and awareness to assist you in feeling empowered to live authentically. My hope is to identify and expand upon your strengths, increase your self-compassion, and explore how our societal context, paired with your individual experiences, are impacting your concerns. I consider the therapist-client relationship to be of the upmost importance and draw upon relational psychodynamic and feminist theories.

My goal is for you to feel safe and welcome in our therapy space and to offer inclusive services. I am personally and professionally committed to my own growth and understanding of privilege and oppression both systemically and individually, and reflect on how our overlapping and differing identities impact our work together. If it sounds like we may be a good fit, please call me for a complimentary phone consultation.
