ABOUT

Journeys Toward Healing is Otoniel or "Toni" Calderon (he/they), a Professional Counselor Associate, located in Portland, Oregon.  I identify as Latino/e, gay, mostly CIS/non-binary, and as a first generation American of Mexican descent.  I am bilingual and can provide services in both English & Spanish. 

Philosophy and Approach:  I believe that every person has within them the potential for healing and growth, while sometimes needing the support of a caring and knowledgeable trusted professional in overcoming any barriers towards those goals.  I provide a person-centered approach tailoring therapeutic techniques to meet each individual’s unique needs.

 

Formal Education & Training: I received my master’s degree in counseling from the University of Texas at San Antonio.   I received training through two internships at Alpha Home, an addiction treatment center along with my practicum at the UTSA Sarabia Family Counseling Center, both located in San Antonio, TX.  I have also been trained by MAPS in MDMA-Assisted Psychotherapy & by InnerTrek in Psilocybin Facilitation.  I am happy to provide evidence of my degree/certifications upon request.
