Emily Wainscoat

emilyEmily Wainscoat has made a home in Central Oregon for the past 18 years, trading the beautiful beaches of Santa Cruz for her love of Central Oregon’s mountains and lakes. Emily holds a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from The University of Oregon and a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Oregon State University.

Grace is new to Bend after pursuing her Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at George Fox University in Portland. Grace ran a private practice in Portland for 3 years before moving to Bend.

Grace specialized in the treatment of trauma in graduate school and has since continued her trauma education with EMDR training. She believes that people can recover from the destructive patterns they learned during abuse or other terrible life events. Sometimes these destructive patterns are found in relationships, work or emotions, but all can be healed over time. Grace approaches counseling as a guide through these dark places back into the light of a full life again.

Before moving to Portland to study, Grace lived in a small mountain town in Northern Arizona where she fell in love with climbing. She continues to pursue that passion here, and is excited to be part of a growing mental health team in Bend.
