Nice to meet you, I’m Bailey.


I am a Certified Social Work Associate (CSWA) in Oregon. I earned my Master of Social Work from Arizona State University in 2022. I am grateful every day that I get to do this work and that I get to be a small part of people’s life stories. I have worked in a variety of mental health settings and primarily work with teens and adults, but I have been fortunate enough to work with folks throughout the life spectrum. 

My style as a clinician, is relationship-centered, collaborative, strength based and tailored to meet the individual needs of each client. I am trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) + Trauma-Focused CBT, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and The Gottman Method which is utilized in both individual and couples’ therapy. I have experience working with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, suicidal ideation, relationship issues, and helping folks navigate life transitions or stressors. It is important to me that each client feels safe, accepted, and heard regardless of where they are at in life.
