Acuity Counseling Therapist Bio
Portia Bajwa, MSW, LICSWA, MHP
Portia accompanies individuals through their journey of self-discovery, placing emphasis on their expertise to guide them along a path that aligns with their unique values. Portia creates a safe space for individuals to feel heard in their pain, and works to guide them toward living a life of intention and meaning.
Working with Individual Adults
Living with depression, anxiety, and past trauma can impede on our ability to engage in the present and set goals for the future. Struggling with feelings like sadness, guilt, and ambivalence can become overwhelming, and too much to bear alone. Whether it be past experiences, relationship problems, or
lack of motivation, it is often difficult to pause, evaluate, and make changes necessary for our mental health and wellbeing. Portia’s goal is to help ground you in your goals, values, and self-identity so that you navigate life in a way that is meaningful to you.
Working with Teens & Young Adults
As we move out of adolescence and into adulthood, there are unique challenges to be met. Portia enjoys supporting individuals in this transition as they navigate high school, college and making their way into the world. Whether it’s academic stress, relationship challenges or discovering who you are, Portia wants to walk with you on the journey of change.
How I can Help
Portia’s philosophy is rooted in person-in-environment, acknowledging how each person has been shaped by their culture, upbringing, and social surroundings. Portia uses a blended approach of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and third wave behavioral therapeutic frameworks. This helps you to
identify thought patterns, create space from thoughts, and ultimately widen perspective. Portia places the individual as the central focus of therapy, honoring their unique ability to inform on their struggles, reflect, and incite change toward a meaningful life.
