Andria Whipple, MS

I hold a Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling from Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, OK. Major course work included human growth and development and multicultural counseling.  My approach is a strength-based approach, as I work collaboratively with my clients to understand their view and help them discover new ways to work towards their goals. My clinical approach draws upon the perspectives and techniques of various therapeutic models such as cognitive behavioral, acceptance and commitment, solution focused, parent child interaction, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. I understand that every person is unique and will address specific needs utilizing other counseling approaches when appropriate.

Skylinn Ortiz-Ramos, MA, LMFT Intern

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist Registered Intern working towards full licensure. I hold a Master of Arts degree in Marriage, Couple and Family Counseling from George Fox University. With over 10 years of experience working with young children, adolescents, and families I have learned to work through a lens that focuses on how systemic trauma impacts daily functioning.  My approach to counseling is focused on emotions using Emotion Focused Therapy, Person Centered Therapy, Strength-Based Therapy and Play Therapy. I believe by increasing emotional intelligence and learning to regulate emotions one can more easily form secure relationships with others; relieving distress and decreasing unwanted behaviors.
