Joelle McCormick LCSW
I earned a BA in Psychology with a minor in Human and Family Development at the University of Montana. At New Mexico State University, I earned an Master's degree in Social Work. After moving to Oregon and completing 2000 hours of client contact under supervision and taking the licensing exam for clinical social workers, I became licensed in 2006 (Licensed Clinical Social Worker.)
Individual and Family Therapy
My orientation blends my education in Psychology and Social Work in that I work with clients from a neuro-developmental framework (nature) as well as from a "person-in-environment" perspective (nurture.) I believe both nature and nurture strongly influence how a person moves through life, copes with hardships and perceives experiences. I draw from psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, narrative and objects-relations theories when working with my clients. I also incorporate knowledge that I have acquired regarding nutrition and interpersonal neurobiology to help clients further support changes they seek. I work to create a trusting, warm and non-judgmental environment as a foundation to my collaboration with clients towards their therapeutic goals; I believe that a trusting therapeutic relationship is key to supporting therapeutic change.
I enjoy hiking, skiing, camping and travel as well as quality time with family and friends. Creating healthy yet tasty meals is also a big interest of mine.
