I'm Naomi Mayo. I'm a therapist and I work with people who are stuck or struggling in their lives with relationships, themselves, their work, or as parents.
I am highly attuned to my clients and practice with integrity because good therapy can change the landscape of the mind and help people to change and grow. I’m not the therapist for everyone. I am for those who are ready to take risks and know that change takes effort.
Working with me.
I received a Master of Social Work in 2002 and a PhD in developmental psychology in 2012. This is a research degree focused on development throughout life and issues in developmental neuroscience. It isn't a clinical degree, but the training greatly informs my clinical practice.
I practice as a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW).
I've been doing this for 20 years and have worked with over a thousand clients, either directly or through providing clinical supervision.

Who I see.
I work with individuals, couples, and parents.
Most individuals I see want one or more of the following:
to feel better
help with a life situation
insight into themselves
I help couples to communicate and connect so that they can better understand each other and change how they show up in their relationship.
When treating children, I primarily meet with their parents because parents are the key shaping force in a child's life. I help parents to better understand and support their child's emotional and psychological development. Counseling with adolescents can, but doesn't have to, include the parents.
My clients are ready to do more than just talk. They are ready for change and will challenge themselves by being honest and taking action.
I am trained in many evidence-based therapies, including ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and the Gottman technique. My clinical lens always focuses on:
how your past and your family have shaped you
how you manage your emotional states
how you view yourself and your world
I offer in-person visits at my office in Hood River and telehealth visits for people in Oregon and Washington.
