fawn mccool, lcsw

Fawn takes a genuine and collaborative approach to every counseling session. With an easy-going communication style she is a compassionate listener yet supports growth with evidence-based interventions. Fawn draws heavily from attachment theory and interpersonal neurobiology which she blends with narrative, cognitive behavioral, feminist, and mindfulness modalities for a holistic approach to healing. She has specialized training in working with women who have experienced challenges in motherhood such as adjustment issues, loss, infertility, postpartum mood/anxiety disorders, birth trauma, or NICU/PICU stays. In addition to private practice, Fawn has worked in a variety of settings providing skilled trauma-informed services to families, women and children. She also teaches at Portland State University and Portland Community College, and volunteers with Baby Blues Connection and NICU Families Northwest. Fawn is a LGBTQ+ affirming provider. When she is not working Fawn loves cooking or spending as much time outdoors as possible-from farmers markets to hiking. When she gets a moment away from the family you can find her behind a sewing machine or reading.
