Nadine Wander, Professional Counselor Associate

Nadine has a Master of Arts Degree from Pacific University in Applied Psychological Science with a focus on Child Psychology and Latino Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from the University of Central Oklahoma. 

Nadine believes in creating a safe and trusting environment by building a strong therapeutic alliance. She enjoys working with young children, tweens, and adolescents, particularly with: grief, trauma, depression, anxiety, and issues relating to body image, self-esteem, behavior management, gender identity, and coming out. Additionally, she enjoys working with families, young adults, and couples to promote problem-solving skills, build empathy, and practice healthy and effective coping mechanisms.

She’s a trauma-informed clinician with a client-centered approach that is grounded in psychodynamic principles, and mindfulness and rooted in the awareness of systemic obstacles. She recognizes that many of our struggles and coping mechanisms are healthy adaptations to the challenges in our world. As an integrative therapist, she views each client as a unique individual and addresses the needs of her clients by drawing from a combination of evidence-based practices, such as: Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), Play Therapy, and Systemic Therapy for a more personalized approach. Nadine will be also providing Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

Ultimately, her goal is to normalize human experiences and encourage self-reflection, while upholding unconditional positive regard and meeting all her clients at whatever stage they are at in their healing journey.
