For many of us, these are frightening and uncertain times. We at Portland Psychotherapy want to make a declaration of support to the millions of people around the nation and here in Portland that have been targeted, oppressed, attacked, or silenced and to those who feel fearful of what may come. Portland Psychotherapy does not endorse discrimination in any form and is invested in ensuring the safety of all members of our community.
If you feel marginalized, oppressed, angered, hurt, afraid, ashamed, or stigmatized, we want you to know you are welcome here. You are all part of the community we love and serve. This is a safe place for you to speak and to be heard. We value you.
