Mariel Pastor


Mariel Pastor made the more-obvious-than-it-seems progression from music industry executive to mental health therapist in the mid-1990s and comes to Cerimon House with great interest in honoring both of these influences. Mariel produces workshops and is Lead Trainer for Internal Family Systems Therapy, and maintains a thriving psychotherapy and consultation practice in downtown Portland. She most recently produced the Cerimon House offering Right Use of Power: The Heart of Ethics with Cedar Barstow, and launched her innovative curriculum Character Mapping in 2015. A native of Chicago, Mariel has lived in Portland since her Hollywood exodus, and is delighted to welcome Cerimon House as her neighbor in the thriving Alberta Arts District.
