Grant Cunningham CADCII, LPC Intern
I have a BA from Metropolitan State University of Denver in Political Science with a focus on International Relations, as well as a Master's Degree in Addiction Counseling and Co-Occurring Disorders from the Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School of Addiction Studies. I am a CADC II in the state of Oregon, and am currently pursuing LPC licensure. I have worked in juvenile justice, community-based detoxification, men's' and women's residential treatment as well as working with families through the Hazelden Betty Ford Family Program.
I provide a collaborative approach to counseling to help individuals improve the overall quality of their lives and to pursue the development of hope and opportunity to find a wholesome approach to life. I provide diagnostic assessment and evaluation, as well as individual and group counseling for addiction recovery and mental illness. I provide education on a variety of topics, including neurobiology and the brain, addictive patterns of thought and behavior, healthy relationships, boundaries,
My primary theoretical orientation is to provide a caring, trusting therapeutic relationships with individuals to help them achieve wholeness, health and an overall improved quality of life. I utilize a person-centered theoretical approach to counseling, allowing for the development of trust and for individual autonomy among those with whom I work. Additionally, I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness-based interventions, Twelve-Step facilitation, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy interventions to support people develop the healthy coping strategies to move towards a better quality of life and feelings of hope and opportunity.
When I am not working, I enjoy taking my Dachshund for walks, hiking in the Oregon wilderness, reading, exercising, and skiing in the winter.
