Heidi Swartzmiller, LMFT-Intern, Birth Doula
Nice to meet you, I’m Heidi.
I’m passionate about seeing people through a biopsychosocial-spiritual lens. I view my clients within the greater context of their lives, and strive to tease out the systems that may be hindering their path to wellness. I believe people were meant to live in relationship, and that it is in this sharing of your life with another that conflict and tension can arise. Emotional wounds can come in all forms, from the least likely of places, and do not need to be carried alone. I am here, if only to say, healing is for you.

Morgan Bradshaw, CSWA
Clinical Social Work Associate
Individuals and Couples Therapist
I was born and raised in North Carolina where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Social Work at Appalachian State University. During school, I interned as an Equine Assisted Psychotherapist Assistant at a youth residential treatment facility. After graduation I accepted a full-time position working with youth as a therapeutic educational specialist. June 2016, I decided to branch out and fuel my adventurous spirit by moving to Portland! Gratefully, I was able to take a couple months off to explore the Pacific Northwest before taking on a full-time position with a non-profit working with families and children involved with child welfare. I worked at the non-profit for approximately three years before deciding to further my education. During graduate school, my practicum took place at the Center for Community Counseling where I was a part-time therapist intern. May 2020 I graduated with honors from Pacific University with my Master in Social work. Shortly after graduation, I received my level two Reiki attunement and have been practicing the healing modality since.
