Healing is possible.
Welcome. I'm Dacia.

I am a therapist based in Portland, Oregon

My specialties include Trauma Therapy, EMDR, Grief and Loss Therapy, and Therapy for Disordered Eating

I provide Individual and Group Therapy.

I work with those who are ready to heal past trauma and find more safety and happiness within themselves and in their romantic relationships.

"I have been to several therapists over the past 10 years and have made significantly more progress with Dacia than with anyone else."

"I finally feel stronger, healthier, and am actually very excited to enter into my next chapter with new knowledge about my past and patterns. You are a wonderful therapist!"

"When I first started working with Dacia, I was at one of the lowest points in my life. Dacia helped me connect to more self compassion and provided me with insight as to why my patterns kept occurring."

"I've been able to make so many positive changes in my life. Thanks for all that you do!"

"Dacia is nonjudgmental and will instantly make you feel welcomed and cared for...You couldn’t be in better hands than with her, so don’t wait any longer and take that next step today."

"Seeing Dacia was one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself. She helped me through a huge loss and life transition. She is also incredibly well-spoken and full of compassion."

"Literally can't say enough positive things about Dacia. She made me feel so completely valid and just respected as a human."

"I am currently seeing Dacia and have been making the investment in therapy for about 6 months now. I still have some work to do, but the changes in my life are undeniable. I would do this all over again in a heartbeat."

I help my clients connect to a greater sense of purpose and authenticity, unlayered from the stories and labels life has placed upon them.

Compassion, curiosity and humor are the heart of my practice. I will help you rediscover your inner strength and resilience as we work towards greater insight and meaning.

Together we will uncover and heal the underlying reasons driving behaviors and help you let go of the things that no longer serve you.

I utilize a directive, collaborative approach to processing past relational and attachment trauma.

Trauma Therapy

I provide a safe space to address and process past and present traumatic experiences, helping my clients to understand how trauma is driving their symptoms.

EMDR Therapy

EMDR therapy aims to resolve unprocessed, traumatic memories in the brain, replacing them with new, more adaptive understandings, and enabling you to move forward.

Grief and Loss

I help my clients be open and present to their grief rather than fight it. Living with unresolved loss and guilt can give rise to many other struggles. Healing is possible.

Eating Disorders

Clients come to me in all stages of treatment. No matter which stage you find yourself, it’s a sign of courage that you’re here, looking for help. Change is possible.

  I work to help heal problems related to:




Eating Disorders


Substance Use and Addiction

Anger Management


Life Transitions

Grief and Loss

Family of Origin


Personal Growth

Stress and Stress Management

Self Esteem

Break Ups and Divorce

Relationship Issues

Social Anxiety Disorders

Dissociative Identity Disorders (DID)


Online therapy services are available to clients throughout Oregon and California

Remote therapy treatment by video call or telephone has proven to be a safe and effective way of addressing mental health needs. This option is always available to my clients.
