Looking for a doctor / nurse practitioner in Portland, Oregon. I want someone who will work with me, as opposed to running the show. More info inside.

I have seen a whole mess of doctors and specialists over the years. I loved my combination of practitioners, but then I moved to Portland.
I am a mid-20s female. My general issues include migraines and anxiety / depression / attention issues.
I'm pretty well-read on my various maladies and want to work with my doctor, as opposed to being talked down to (sadly this has happened to me more than once).
Someone sex-positive who doesn't have a problem with nulliparous women having IUDs would be a huge bonus. Of course, I can always keep going to Planned Parenthood for this stuff.
I would love to find a general practitioner. I also have seen a psych nurse for my "crazy meds" (loved her), a neurologist (we didn't work well together, he was convinced I was drug-seeking and refused to even discuss pain meds), a massage therapist for chronic pain management, an acupuncturist / naturopath...
I certainly wouldn't mind going to an integrated wellness center that has a doctor as well as in-house massage, etc.
And yes, I have insurance—at least I do through the end of the year.
Anon for obvious reasons—I don't go around announcing my anxiety / depression issues to just anyone.
