BRIDGET REDMON, LCSW
MY EDUCATION, EXPERIENCE, AND TRAINING:
I graduated from Western Oregon University with an undergraduate degree in Interpreting for the Deaf in 2011. During my years as an interpreter I repeatedly saw the impact of oppression on the Deaf community and other marginalized communities. Always having a social justice heart, I decided to pursue my Masters of Social Work. I graduated in 2017 from Portland State University with my MSW. During my schooling, I focused on working with children, youth, and families. I have experience working with clients who struggle with depression, anxiety, life transition stressors, complex trauma, and addiction. Several theories inform my practice including Polyvagal Theory, Attachment Theory, Interpersonal Neurobiology, and Somatic Psychotherapy. Since graduating with my MSW, I have engaged in advocacy work, community-based interventions, individual and family therapy, home visits, school based therapeutic services, crisis intervention, and I have extensive experience collaborating with other providers to best serve clients. As a therapist I value honesty, transparency, and integrity in my work. I approach clients with a passion for authenticity and connection. I believe it is important to always be learning and I am constantly seeking out new trainings and research.
