Gina Gratza, LMFT
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
My role as a therapist is to provide a safe and trusting container for clients to feel as though they can fully be themselves, without fear of judgement. I work in a relational manner that is seeking connection and presence with each client. I utilize mindfulness, bringing awareness to what is happening in the now, alongside somatic practices to bring attention to the sensations in the body and the wisdom of our emotions. There are also elements of psychoeducation in my practice around trauma, emotions and our many parts of the Self. In my practice we may incorporate experiential exercises that mix up the traditional talk therapy format into something broader to build different neural pathways of exploring the whole self. Ultimately, clients guide the sessions and I am there as a support to hold a mirror for and move in the direction that their goals and focus take us. **Oregon Psilocybin Therapy Update** In 2023, Oregon will be the first state in the nation to begin offering psilocybin services to people in state approved facilities by state licensed and trained facilitators. There are a variety of psilocybin training programs operating currently to train and prepare future facilitators to sit alongside individuals seeking this medicine. Stay tuned for more to come as the state approves manufacturers, facilities and facilitators.
