Kellie Supriano is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Oregon and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the State of Hawaii. She completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at San Francisco State University and her Masters Degree in Counseling at California State University East Bay. Shortly after obtaining her Masters Degree she moved to Hawaii, where she initially worked as a school based mental health therapist, and then with child and adult survivors of sexual abuse in a clinic setting. Upon relocating to Portland, she worked as a mental health therapist with survivors of domestic violence at the Gateway Center for Domestic Violence. She is also a certified yoga teacher and taught female identified prisoners with Living Yoga at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility for several years. She started her own private practice in 2015.
Her practice focuses on the use of Mindfulness, Hakomi, EMDR and the CIMBS method (see below). These methods focus heavily on somatic (mind/body) and relational experiences. Kellie specializes in working with people with depression, anxiety, PTSD and complex trauma.
Kellie has been studying the CIMBS (Complex Integration of Multiple Brain Systems) method of psychotherapy since 2016, and in 2020 Kellie received her certification in this method. The CIMBS method was developed in Seattle, Washington and draws from neurobiological research and attachment theory. It focuses on the transpiring present moment and the relationship between the therapist and the client.
