About Noah Roost, PhD



I grew up in Oregon, and received my professional training in Tennessee and in New York. I returned to Oregon to complete my postdoctoral fellowship in Portland, and to be closer to family. Since childhood, I have been drawn to learning about and understanding individuals and their stories. Along with this interest, another passion of mine is mindfulness practices and meditation, as I found they help me stay more fully connected to others and also bring vitality to my moment-to-moment experience. These interests guided me as I made my career choices, which led me from education to psychology. I have been practicing therapy for thirteen years. I spend my free time playing in the outdoors, gardening, and hanging out with my two sons.
