Tawnya Davis,  Professional Counselor Associate

Arise Eugene Therapist

I am an Oregon native who enjoys the beauty of all of nature’s creation. I find joy in life’s simple pleasures. I enjoy traveling, music and singing, genealogy, cooking, photography, sitting in the sunshine with a good book and being in the company of my two kitties and husband. I have a strong interest in ancestral health and wellness. Raised Christian, I have adopted various beliefs and philosophies throughout adulthood and added those to my personal spiritual practice. I welcome all faiths and beliefs into the therapy space.

Can I help you ?

Psychotherapy and counseling can be helpful in a variety of issues.

 

My work is focused on adults who find themselves “stuck” in life and have trouble making changes. I would love to help you rewrite the story of your life. If you are ready to work with me and go on a healing journey I can assist you with:

• Disordered Eating

• Depression

• Anxiety & Stress

• Trauma

• Chronic pain and illness

• Grief 

• Spiritual issues

• Women’s health



Approach

I consider my approach to be based on the premise of neuro-psychotherapy. This is where neuroscience meets therapy. I provide psychoeducation around the brain, limbic system and neuroplasticity so that you can feel more in control of your body and emotions. I use somatic therapies in my work to help you release emotions and pain in your body that can get stuck. I have a particular interest in ancestral wellness, where you will learn from a physiological standpoint and how “modern saber-toothed tigers” affect you in your everyday life by creating stress in both the mind and body. 


Therapeutic Focus

I enjoy incorporating Narrative Therapy to help you view problems in your life with an external lens and to help you rewrite your story. Other theories I pull from include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (MCBT) and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. Somatic therapies are another modality I like to use to help release emotional and physical pain. 

Experience

Since 2011, my work has been diverse as I assisted adults struggling with a wide range of behavioral and emotional barriers. Work settings include crisis respite, county jail, outpatient therapy and residential therapy.

Formal Training and Education

I graduated summa cum laude from Bushnell University in 2011 with a Master’s degree in Community Counseling. I received my Bachelor of Science in a dual program combined of Health Studies and Gender Studies in 2007 from Eastern Oregon University. I am credentialed through the State of Oregon as a Qualified Mental Health Professional (QMHP). I am a Registered Associate for the State of Oregon as I work towards being a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). Continuing education trainings have included The Body Keeps the Score-Trauma Healing with Bessel van der Kolk, MD; The Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS) with Annie Hopper; Integrative Medicine for Mental Health Professionals with Leslie Korn, Ph.D.; and Pain and Neuroplasticity with Karen Pryor, Ph.D.
