Karmen E. Galman

RN, MN, PMHNP Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner

“I encourage your full participation and feedback in the decision making and treatment process. The therapy framework that I utilize is slightly eclectic, with strong influences of both cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindful-based cognitive therapy (MBCT).

Collaborative and education focused.

I utilize a holistic approach for medication treatment plans, incorporating both traditional Western medicine and non-traditional approaches, tailoring treatments to your individual needs, as well as your philosophical beliefs when possible.”


As of November 1st, 2018, I transitioned from my sole private practice over to the group practice, Calico Mental Health Associates. The practice support specialists operate from one central location, while providers are in their individual office spaces in various locations around Portland. Administratively speaking, Calico providers and their clients, are fully supported remotely. I am thrilled to be joining this lovely, unique, and innovative group of people at Calico Mental Health Associates!
