A Modern Approach to Therapy

Head & Heart Therapy, located in NW Portland, Oregon, is focused on helping adolescents and adults improve their lives, through methods that are innovative and evidence based. Sessions are individualized to meet the needs of the client, rather than a "one size fits all" approach. 

Therapy modalities at Head & Heart Therapy include Eye Movement De-sensitization and Re-processing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Art Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing, among others.


Founder and therapist Sarah Dobey provides not only individual therapy, but also provides group art therapy, teletherapy (on a case-by-case basis), and clinical supervision. Please scroll down to see more information regarding current group offerings. All events are up to date.

Anonymous Client

When I began therapy with Sarah I was in an especially dark place. I had all but given up on therapy being able to help me. Since then she has helped me to not only handle life's challenges, but to actually experience joy again. Her generosity and kindness can't be overstated. I will forever be grateful for the help she's given me.
