Mike is a great counselor, unfortunately it was too much of a commute for us but I would strongly recommend him for couples counseling.
Scott is pragmatic, supportive, empathic and knowledgeable about the numerous issues we've brought to him. He draws from a multitude of paradigms to offer his best assessment and understanding of what he is observing and hearing. He has also helped us to come up with simple, practical and doable self-interventions to "try at home." Whether you are seeking a deep dive or tune-up, I would definitely recommend Scott for couples counseling.
In November 2013, I suffered severe sudden hearing loss in my left ear. I had no pain, only loud ringing in the ear. Following a specialist's treatment plan--a steroid that may or may not have any effect, I was told--I felt the need to seek out a qualified Reiki healer as well. A first-time user of Thumbtack, I quickly found some professionals that I thought could help. I sent messages and received prompt responses. After careful consideration and a phone conversation, I chose Jeanette Chardon. The words "16 years experience in working with people who have serious or chronic illness--conditions often considered unsolvable" stood out because that's exactly what I was dealing with: a medical mystery. At our first session, Jeanette asked questions and listened to me, then got right to work. I relaxed body and mind. She started with a sage smudge and conducted a series of what I'd describe as universal prayers. I received heartfelt, skilled, intuitively focused Reiki. She played various noise-making instruments and an iPod recording. She made vocal intonations. She even sang at times (Jeanette has an amazing voice). All of Jeanette's creative methods of treatment were felt deeply on mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. From the get-go, Jeanette gave me to understand the importance and vitality of positive thinking. She communicated this in ways that had me smiling and laughing out loud at times. No more researching on the Internet about the disease! I was to focus on taking care of myself and making whatever little "shifts" I could in my ways of thinking. The homework she gave promoted meditative awareness, deep-breathing relaxation, positive affirmations and daily exercise, whatever I could manage. The first session was two hours; subsequent sessions were one hour in length. I soon experienced a breakthrough and my hearing began improving. I continued doing whatever I could to take care of myself. Both the audiologist and the Ear Nose Throat doctor were astounded by my recovery after two months, citing that most who suffer what I did only recover partial hearing, if any at all. The ENT used the word "miracle." Without a doubt, I know that Jeanette helped me heal during this very difficult time. I will continue working on myself as a client of Jeanette Chardon. She is Outstanding!
Terry is a phenomenally gifted therapist who guided me through the darkest point in my life. Intuitive, caring, authentic and wise beyond words, she held a strong, safe container for me to fall apart during and after my divorce and put myself and my family back together. Her deep presence allowed me to trust her as my guide, and I consider her an angelic arrival in my life. My ability to co-parent smoothly with my ex-husband and raise two healthy well adjusted kids is due to the work we did together during our break up and directly after. If you are ready to release your grief and sorrow and step into a full, juicy, amazing life, Terry will be there with helping hands and open heart.
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.
Sarah is just down right amazing. Her ability to empathize with my difficulties, understand them, and then from what seems like a bird's eye view offers up new possible realities that offer up more joy in my life is impressive. She is an impressive problem solver! Her approach to counseling and coaching is helpful from everything from money and career difficulties to relationship difficulties. Works with the mind, body, and spirit in a integrated way and it is extremely effective! I recommend her anyone I meet that is seeking help in their life.
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 spoken with a number of different counselors and therapists over the years and have struggled to find someone I connect with. From the very beginning, Sarah helped me outline my mental health goals so that we were working toward the same thing. She even took the time to research the semi-obscure religion in which I was raised so she could understand my upbringing and give me advice based on my values and not hers. She made custom meditation recordings and breathing exercises for me. She worked with me on payment options. When I moved away she accomodated me with phone sessions which are just as good if not better because I can say things which I would be embarrased to in person. She has had a profound impact on my life and holds a special place in my heart. I would, and do, highly recommend her to my friends.
Linda Sheppard, of Adoption, Attachment & Family Counseling, is an amazing woman with an amazing family. Truly, she is a gift from God. Linda's compassion, love and experience with adoption and all the "good and bad" that come with this miracle, make her one of a kind. I am a survivor because of Linda. She personally made my family's journey of adoption and subsequent disruption one that we can accept, grow, and learn from. We have been able to move on to be a healthy and whole family. Without Linda's constant care and counseling, I honestly don't know how I would have dealt with the hurt, guilt, pain and grief that I have been through. I love Linda beyond words and will forever be grateful for her. I praise God for putting her in my life!
Victoria Howard’s counseling weaves together wisdom, comfort and encouragement to nurture personal growth. She seamlessly taps into her experience and expertise to routinely offer perfect words for the circumstances at hand. She does not give up or waver in her support. She is fiercely loyal and has responded with skill and grace to every request for change. She is a treasure.
Mia has a calming spirit about her. She is a great listener. I feel she connects with me on a deeper level with a unique understanding of what I'm feeling. I would recommend her highly to anyone.

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.
