With a Master’s degree in Counseling from Oregon State University and an undergraduate degree in Adventure Recreation, Corey has spent the last 20+ years working with families and individuals from children to adults in a very dynamic manner. Corey has worked in wilderness therapy, therapeutic boarding schools, transitional living, as well as in his own private practice and finds joy in helping young adults navigate the complexity of large transitions in their lives.
As a son, a husband, and a father Corey understands how complex life can be and aims to help those he works with to find tools and techniques to slow things down and create a system of communication and support that is effective and understood. As a therapist Corey is dedicated to utilizing a trauma informed care approach with his clients. He uses skills and techniques from EMDR, DBT, CBT, and talk therapy in treating his clients. Corey believes that community is one of the most critical aspects of the healing process and that all members of this community must embrace the journey for the most growth to take place.
Corey draws from both his life experiences and his clinical knowledge in helping clients navigate how complex, crazy, and at times debilitating life can be and aims to provide calm waters where discussions and healing can happen. Helping his clients connect to passions, self-forgiveness, areas of strength and confidence are also a very present part of his work.
When Corey is not at work, he can be found racing bikes at the local bmx tracks and cheering on his two children who are much must faster than him. He also loves skiing, camping, spending quality time in nature, and listening to music.
