Angie Barnhurst, Professional Counselor Associate

Eugene Therapist

My name is Angie Barnhurst. I am a Professional Counselor Associate in the state of Oregon. I have lived in Eugene for most of my life and in southern California for five years.

I welcome all individuals looking for a space to share and devote time to their mental health. When working with me, clients will find an environment where they are respected for their culture, gender identity, disability status, and belief systems. I am a believer in God and my spirituality has greatly influenced my path in life and made me want to connect with others on a deep level.

Can I help you ?

Counseling is a powerful way to learn more about yourself and strive for wellness. I work with children, adolescents and adults.

 I may be a good fit for you if you are struggling with:

● Depression

● Anxiety

● Trauma history

● PTSD/PTSD-like symptoms

● Relationship difficulties

● Identity formation

● Grief

I am also trained and passionate about working with those with:

● ADHD

● Autism and other neurodiversity

● Cognitive disabilities 



Approach

I provide a person-centered approach to help individuals learn about themselves in different cultural contexts including how past experiences or traumas are impacting their life. Individuals deserve to sit with a counselor who is not merely accepting, but more importantly, non-judgmental. I use a holistic approach to therapy and believe that a person’s well-being involves their brain, body, and mind. Therapy should support all three of those areas in order to help clients find balance and increased understanding of the self. When working with individuals, my first goal is to create a safe therapeutic relationship, in which clients feel respected and supported.


Therapeutic Focus

I am trained in Somatic and Attachment Focused EMDR Therapy and utilize an integrative approach and use therapies that fit each client individually. I rely heavily on the framework of Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) Theory, but also utilize Client-centered Therapy, Behavioral and Cognitive Behavioral Therapies, Feminist Theory, and Constructivist Theory. In certain therapeutic relationships, I rely on the framework of Theory of Mind integrated with the EMDR approach. 

Experience

I have been working in the field of mental health since 2019. I have worked at the University of Oregon as a Disability Access Advisor and most recently as a Child and Adult EMDR Therapist at Oregon EMDR LLC. 

I have experience in leading Group Therapy and providing education to families of loved ones with disabilities. I worked as a Special Education Teacher and Autism Specialist for five years 

before becoming a therapist. 

Formal Training and Education

I hold a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Bushnell University. I hold a second Master’s Degree in Special Education from the University of Oregon and have additional training in counseling individuals with disabilities.
