Camille Coleman, MSW
Social Work Therapist
I practice at the intersection of evidence-based therapies and a warm relational approach. I provide care using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Functional Analytic Psychotherapy, Motivational Interviewing, Attachment Theory, and Developmental Theory-- all with a client-focused and trauma-Informed lens. I'm passionate about using evidence-based modalities because when people are experiencing pain and distress, they are looking for solutions that work.
I work with individuals navigating emotion dysregulation and chronic distress, helping them move toward lives of hope, fulfillment, and connection. I also work with clients presenting with disordered eating, chronic illness, trauma, panic, addictive behaviors, and interpersonal difficulties.
The work we do in sessions is based on the therapeutic relationship and establishing a confidential space. It's my goal that you feel welcome and safe to share as we collaborate toward achieving your treatment goals.
"I am passionate about client-centered care. I want everyone I work with to know that they are
valuable and worthy of the life they long for. I work with individuals of all ages, as well as couples and family units.
I look forward to working with you!"
Prior to joining the team at Anchor Within, I worked in Chicago, Illinois at a group practice specializing contextual behavior therapy. While there, I utilized mindfulness, culturally attuned interventions, and evidence-based clinical approaches (like ACT, and DBT) to find movement in areas where individuals felt stuck and hopeless.
I have worked at the University of Chicago Medicine, facilitating workshops around empowerment and advocacy for Black and Brown communities within the medical space and providing information on pressing health issues, like anxiety and depression, amidst the COVID pandemic. During my years in Portland, Oregon I have worked with families within the foster care system and people experiencing transitional stressors and crisis, such as houselessness.
