About Portland Psychotherapy:
Portland psychotherapy is based on a social enterprise model that delivers three services:
1. Specialty therapy services for the public
2. Training in evidence-based therapy for professionals
3. Scientific research to benefit all of humanity
From 2013-2015, about 16% of total revenue went to fund the research our center is conducting. This includes dedicated research time for four staff psychologists and a full time research coordinator. Our funding structure protects Portland Psychotherapy from the vicissitudes of grant funding and allows us to focus on furthering science rather than chasing grants. In addition, this also allows our clinicians to operate in a true scientist-practitioner model through opportunities to contribute to and benefit from research conducted in the center. More information about our unique business model can be found here. We are a collaborative group of skilled clinicians and researchers who work together to provide the highest quality of care to those we serve and to use our work to contribute to the broader scientific community. A listing of our publications can be found here and our lab homepage can be found here.
