Ida Moadab, Ph.D.
Founder and Director
Ida has provided mental health services in Eugene for almost ten years. She earned her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at the University of Oregon, and completed her predoctoral internship at the VA Puget Sound Health Care System at American Lake and her postdoctoral residency at Stanford School of Medicine. Throughout her training and continuing education, she has emphasized evidence-based approaches, which include Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Exposure/Exposure and Response Prevention. Her goal as a therapist is to help people grow into their authentic selves through development of self-awareness and strategies that help them overcome difficulties to live a fuller, more meaningful lives.
After several years in private practice providing specialized treatment of Anxiety, OCD, and PTSD, she started ECAS with a goal of expanding the availability of time-limited, goal-oriented, culturally-sensitive services (which include treatment/therapy, assessment, training, and consultation). She is dedicated to helping people realize that they have the inner resources to feel more resilient and act in accordance with their deepest values.
Ron received his Ph.D. from Miami University in 1993. Since then, he has worked in university counseling centers and helped students address a wide range of issues, including anxiety, panic attacks, depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder. The primary models that inform his therapeutic approach are cognitive-behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and interpersonal therapy. His strong interest in cultural competence and identity development also guide his individual work and he offers workshops that help individuals and organizations become more intentionally inclusive and culturally aware. When not working, Ron’s self-care includes knitting, baking, and playing videogames.
