I’m Petra Ramirez, LPC. I enjoy spending time with my husband, children, and grandchildren. I consider myself blessed to be part of our clan and we spend lots of time laughing, teasing each other, and enjoying each other’s company. I also enjoy reading, hiking, and going for walks.

I hope to help bridge those gaps and help explore what beliefs, thoughts, emotions, or behaviors may be having a negative impact.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Eastern Oregon University with a Minor in Anthropology & Sociology. I have a Master of Science from Northwest Nazarene University with an emphasis on grief, trauma, and addiction.
