Photo of the therapist, Inness Pryor. She has short hair. She is smiling, with her hand on her cheek, and wears red lipstick (full disclosure, this photo was taken maybe the one day in a year that she wore red lipstick)


Waitlist available for Washington & Oregon residents!

I received a Master's of Education in Community Counseling from Seattle University in 2017, followed by additional coursework in a variety of therapeutic subjects. I am grateful for the education I received from clients at Seattle Counseling Service, Youth Eastside Services, and Pathlight Mood & Anxiety Center, prior to establishing my private practice in 2021. I am licensed in Oregon and Washington


I especially love working with adult clients who are motivated to explore the following:

dealing with feelings

connecting with personal values

communicating with others

general self-exploration

unpacking inherited beliefs and patterns

identifying and honoring healthy boundaries

increasing self-awareness and acceptance

tending intimate relationships, including those with multiple partners

reducing "over-controlled" behaviors related to anxiety or Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

or who hold any of these identities:

young adult


sex worker



people pleaser


First and foremost, I am a client-centered therapist, which means that I draw on various therapy styles and skills flexibly, in order to best serve your individual needs.  I will always endeavor to hold compassionate, non-judgmental space for you, while simultaneously challenging you in service of your goals. I have specific training in Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP), but I like to pepper in concepts and skills from a wide variety of clinical styles, such as mindfulness or Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO-DBT). I have a background in sex education and I am a sex-positive therapist who tries to practice body acceptance. As a former English major, I'm fond of all kinds of meaning making; some sessions may include creative interventions. Please let me know if you would like to bring cultural healing practices of your own into sessions, as I would be happy to discuss this.

I identify as a White, middle class, queer, cisgender woman, among other things. I recognize that many of my identities afford me certain privileges; I strive to stay aware of these, and to work with each client from a culturally humble perspective. I am committed to the work of decolonizing my practice, which I recognize as a lifelong pursuit, rather than a goal to be checked off. I regard myself as a perpetual student, always learning - and bound to make mistakes at times. When that happens, I invite you to engage in a process of repair with me; it is always your choice whether or not to do so.

I endeavor to maintain a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, by adhering as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0, Level AA), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines help make the web more user friendly to everyone. Due to the dynamic nature of the website, minor issues may occasionally occur as it is updated regularly. If you have any comments and or suggestions relating to improving the accessibility of the site, please don't hesitate to contact me - I appreciate your feedback!

In my free time, you'll find me creating playlists, taking long road trips and singing very loudly, browsing antique malls and movie rental stores, and preparing to nerd out in book club. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and I live here with my husband and sister, two dogs, and a cat. (I vacuum a lot.) I acknowledge that the land on which I am now settled "rests on traditional village sites of the Multnomah, Wasco, Cowlitz, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Bands of Chinook, Tualatin, Kalapuya, Molalla, and many other tribes who made their homes along the Columbia River creating communities and summer encampments to harvest and use the plentiful natural resources of the area" (Portland Indian Leaders Roundtable, 2018). The colonization of what is now known as Portland led to the attempted genocide of its indigenous peoples, as well as theft of their land. These historic traumas continue to impact present day generations; however, Native people are still here and are vital contributors to the community. I invite you to learn more from Leading with Tradition, a document created by the Portland Indian Leaders Roundtable.
