Meet Tanya Gore, MA LMFT intern

H

ello, my name is Tanya Gore and I am a marriage and family therapist registered intern with the State of Oregon.  I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Northwest University in Kirkland, WA and a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from George Fox University in Portland, OR.  I enjoy helping individuals and couples find healthier ways to connect both physically and emotionally, and working with families from a systems and attachment perspective. Other areas I am passionate about include couples who are remarried, blended families, those with an invisible or chronic illness, disabilities, anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem and identity issues as well as grief and loss.

I am currently a registered Intern working toward licensure as both a Marriage & Family Therapist and Professional Counselor and am under the supervision of Shelley Hanson, LMFT, LPC.  I adhere to the Code of Ethics established by the American Association of Marriage & Family Therapists, American Counseling Association, and the Oregon Board of Counselors and Therapists.

y theoretical approach is informed by John Bowlby’s Attachment Theory which helps us understand why we may react in certain ways to emotionally connected relationships.  I am additionally informed by Sue Johnson’s Emotionally Focused Therapy which was created to help “reduce distress in adult love relationships and create more secure attachment bonds.”  I have completed the Level 1 Externship training for treating couples as well as being trained in Prepare-Enrich, an inventory tool for pre-married and married couples wanting to deepen their relationship.  Additionally, I continue to receive further training in trauma-informed care and interpersonal neurobiology.
