Brad Larsen, PsyD
I am a Psychologist Resident in Oregon and I have worked as a mental health therapist since 2006. I provide services to individuals, couples and groups. My training in contemporary Gestalt therapy has been especially valuable in working with people who are managing depression, anxiety, addiction and health issues, as well as with individuals struggling with their sexual and gender identity. I believe that all people are fundamentally oriented toward healthy functioning. By reviving the natural process of self regulation, individuals can experience relief from symptoms related to depression, anxiety, trauma, and addictions. However, more than just symptom relief, I believe individuals are capable of creating value from troublesome experiences and living fulfilling lives. I have focused on providing competent mental health services to the LGBTQ community in Portland since 2007.
I received a masters degree in clinical psychology in 2007 and a doctorate in clinical psychology in 2011 from Pacific University, an APA accredited program. I completed my pre-doctoral internship at the Mental Health Association of Westchester in Westchester County, New York in 2011. I am an adjunct faculty at the School of Professional Psychology at Pacific University and a regular contributor to JustOut.
To lead a life in which we are inspired and can inspire others, our hearts have to be alive; they have to be filled with passion and enthusiasm. To achieve that, we need the courage to live true to ourselves. Rather than borrowing from or imitating others, we need the conviction to be able to think for ourselves and to take action out of our own sense of responsibility.
