Mike is a great counselor, unfortunately it was too much of a commute for us but I would strongly recommend him for couples counseling.
Jen is a warm and compassionate person, and a skilled counselor for couples/families and individuals alike. Her Emotion-Focused Therapy background really helps couples understand each other's feelings and find new ways of communicating.
I have been a client of Jessi Huffman's for about a year and I absolutely love our meetings! She is so encouraging, helpful, positive, and just a good person all around. The office has a warm, safe feeling to it, and the location right on the river is perfect. Couldn't ask for a better counseling center to go to!
Working with Clear Heart Counseling was a rewarding experience for me. I felt respected and genuinely cared for during my time there. A high level of comfort and safety paved the way for trust are relationship building. I grew a lot from my time at Clear Heart because I felt accepted and not judged. It is amazing what the right amount of support and gentle challenge can do.
We found Kate while my wife and I were looking for a marriage counselor. We were a little skeptical at first since we could not find many reviews for her. We took a chance and decided to get in contact with her and we were extremely happy with the results. We felt comfortable with her from the moment we sat down at our first session. She has been doing this for many years and it shows in her professionalism. She does not take sides and helps us to communicate open with one another so we can see each other’s views and concerns that arise between us, making it easier to calmly discuss and resolve conflicts. If you are curious about marriage counseling I would strongly recommend Kate.
Aaron is a very compassionate person and counselor. I have worked with him during our training in school and now regularly consult with him on clinical, career counseling, and practice matters. He bring to his work a high level of professionalism and a warm presence that helps me and others feel accepted and grounded. He also brings a playful sense of humor that can help anyone feel a little more light-hearted. I feel very confident in his work, and I regularly refer people to him that want help with career counseling and for other mental health services.
We enjoyed our initial consultation and are moving forward with couples counseling. We have confidence that Angela has the style and tools that will work for our relationship.
I have always been a hopeful person, but a little over a year ago I wasn't certain that I would be able to rise above what felt like this unsurmountable pit of post traumatic hell. I felt that I would be swallowed alive and was slowly being absorbed by it. The pain of my past was chasing me into a corner everyday and even though I was now surrounded by those who deeply love and care about me, I felt alone by my experiences, and stark differences in my day to day survival. I knew I needed help, and I knew that even though I was terrified I couldn't do it alone. After scheduling, and rescheduling out of fear, I finally made it to Krystal's office. I didn't know what to expect, but I felt like i was on the verge of breaking and with tears in my eyes I shared why I was there. I never could have anticipated a warmer reception than the welcome I received from Krystal that day, and each day there after. The routine I would come to know and cherish with the work that I would do in and out of our sessions was subtle, and I remember feeling a little better, and a little more at peace in my heart after each time shared. The immense shift and turn around has been an amazing blessing to my life, and I know that I would not have been able to do it with out Krystal. Her authentic and natural ability to create a sacred space for healing to evolve in, is genuine in every sense of the word. And unlike many other Therapists I'd seen in the past, I know with out a shadow of a doubt that this, is Krystal's calling. I enjoy Be Kind Counseling because with out it I would never have come to deeply understand that I really am the author of my life, and that I have the ability to write and rewrite my story as beautifully and as safely as I see suitable. Krystal's therapy have allowed me to delve into all areas I am passionate about with confidence, and my sessions have given me the focus to work towards my goals. I have re found my voice, and am using it. And to me that is priceless. As my healing journey continues with Krystal and through the help of her sessions; I am grateful to look back and see such significant growth within myself. I look forward to that which I know is lighting the path ahead of me guiding me deeper into my strengths. A kindness I now recognize as necessary to not only allocate towards every one around me ( that I had a pretty great handle on), but kindness that I can allocate towards myself. To sum up my experience. always supportive, always compassionate, always kind That is, Be Kind Counseling

How can I help you get where you want to go? I specialize in couple and marital issues, particularly in communication, trust, relationship satisfaction and intimacy.
With twenty years of experience, I pay a lot of attention to non-verbal as well as verbal communication. This is especially useful in relationship counseling. Non-verbal communication can show sides of ourselves which we may not be aware of but others notice. The good news is that noticing a new side to oneself can lead to welcome change. New sides to oneself can lead the way into change that comes naturally. I notice the difference between change that comes naturally and change that comes with strain. The strain usually isn't sustainable, change that fits ones nature is. I've taught conflict facilitation in Portland State University's graduate facilitation program. I've spent many years developing attitudes and skills which allow us to work through inner and outer conflict.
I see individuals with anxiety and depression as well as those going through relationship transitions, including divorce. I love working with parents and millennials as well.
Providing quality counseling services to help people move forward in life and achieve their goals.
I'm committed to the best possible care for my clients. To me this means that I'm focused not only on outcomes but also process - ensuring that clients feel as though they are progressing towards their goals, that they are learning about themselves and their relationships, and that they are gaining and implementing effective tools for life. I want to make sure that what we do together is sustainable, realistic, and achievable. When obstacles appear, I'm not afraid of identifying and tackling them in order to reduce the chances of falling back into old, destructive patterns. Finally, I have a high standard for the work that I do because I recognize that others' lives and relationships are being affected by the counseling process.
I offer couples counseling and individual psychotherapy services. I use family systems therapy, somatics, and follow the principles of emotionally focused couples work. I work with movement and the body using a somatic and process-oriented approach. In addition, I work with symbolic methods (dreamwork, expressive arts therapy, psychodrama, Gestalt, and movement therapy). I have a background in John Bradshaw's nationally acclaimed teachings on the inner child, codependency, and healing toxic shame with a humanistic, transpersonal, and family systems perspective to heal trauma and addiction.
I offer guidance in God's word. If you want to learn about what God says in his letters to us about food laws, marriage, the coming of the Antichrist, or how-to, you tell me what you want to know and learn. I offer one-on-one or group guidance.
