Where compassion and science meet.
Intensive mental health care with highly skilled multi-disciplinary teams in a comfortable setting for children, adolescents, and adults.
Introducing our Director of Diversity and Inclusion for Collective Care Clinic and Portland Anxiety Clinic:
Annette Cantu, PhD
Dr. Annette Cantu holds a Doctoral degree in School Psychology from the University of Texas – Austin, a master’s degree in School Psychology from the University of Texas – Austin, and a Bachelor of Arts in Religion. She completed her doctoral psychology internship at Oregon Health and Science University in pediatric psychology and her postdoctoral residency at the OHSU Harold Schnitzer Diabetes Center.
With a strong background and particular interest in gender studies, diversity research, child and family therapy, and having a diverse ethnic and cultural background, Dr. Cantu is uniquely positioned to lead Collective Care Clinic and Portland Anxiety Clinic in her important role. Some of the initiatives that Dr. Cantu will undertake to promote ethnic and cultural awareness and equitable practices include engaging in needs assessments to identify areas of improvement or where gaps may exist in our practices of equity and inclusion. She will provide clinical consultation to staff using a lens of diversity to ensure all considerations are accounted for when approaching individuals and families of unique backgrounds. Dr. Cantu will also provide education to our staff, students and postdoctoral residents in the areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We welcome Dr. Cantu to our leadership team and look forward to continuing to make Collective Care Clinic and Portland Anxiety Clinic the most inclusive organizations serving our communities.
Everyone that walks through our doors will be provided with services that meet the specific needs of that person. We collaboratively develop a roadmap together to identify each step toward a better future. Collective Care has developed specific programming that adheres to scientifically driven approaches to helping the individuals and families we serve.
The Collective Care System
We are different than a hospital setting. No one stays overnight or is forced to find their way through a complicated medical center when joining us at Collective Care. We walk side-by-side with each person through their journey based on their expressed needs combined with staying true to our scientifically driven principles.
