Annie Calhoun Randall, BArch

Student Intern Vancouver and Portland

Annie is a counseling student intern who is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in clinical mental health counseling from Western Seminary. Annie graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor of Architecture in 2016, shortly after which she decided to make a change in her career. As someone who is recovered herself, Annie wanted to help others heal and experience the freedom of an improved relationship with food and body. Thus, Annie then returned to The Nutrition Therapy Institute in Denver, where she received an occupational degree in nutritional therapy. Annie has nearly six years of experience in coaching clients with disordered eating patterns, which then led her to returning to school (once again) for a master in counseling. Annie is currently completing her practicum experience at A New Day Counseling Center, where she is working with a wide range of clients. Annie has experience working with anxiety, depression, body image, disordered eating, and trauma.

With that said, Annie is still exploring her counseling approach. Though, she is currently drawn to Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Somatic Experiencing (SE), and Internal Family Systems (IFS). Annie’s approach is attachment-based, trauma-informed, and person-centered. In addition, Annie’s approach is rooted in the principles of Health at Every Size (HAES) and social justice. Annie understands that humans do not live in a vacuum. Consequently, our social environments shape our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. As such, Annie takes a holistic approach, and she seeks to come alongside her clients with empathy and compassion. Moreover, Annie has a special interest in working with athletes. As a lifelong athlete herself, Annie understands the additional challenges that athletes face and the ways in which these challenges can impact one’s relationship with food and body.

Annie grew up in Colorado, but she considers Portland home. In her free time, Annie enjoys running, weightlifting, reading, writing, and drawing. In addition, Annie enjoys spending time with her partner and her adorable puppy.
