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.
Scott wastes no time getting to the core and causes of our issues. After 2 sessions with Scott my husband and I, who recently moved to Portland, learned more about ourselves and each other than we had in a year with our previous counselor. Scott not only can relate to us, he offers professional research-based advice and strategies as well as recommending several quality books that have inspired both of us to become better people. Because of this we are working on ourselves everyday, not just when we meet with Scott, and our relationship has strengthened immensely. I highly recommend Scott- counseling is his obvious passion and he is commited to helping his clients.
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.
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.
Many things have changed during my time spent working with Dana. The biggest being greater self love and acceptance. I always thought I had a fair amount of self respect, but when working with Dana I was really able to see all the negative/limiting beliefs I kept placing on myself. Dana's approach has been much different then when I've worked with counselors in the past. She asked me what was and wasn't effective in past counseling sessions. This allowed me to feel comfortable in expressing my needs. I was hoping to work with someone who was engaging, and gave honest feedback during our talks. Dana did just that, and it made SUCH a difference in our time together. She's mastered how to be both personable and professional with her clients. After a few months of working with Dana, I started to experience some major shifts. Subconsciously I think I walked in her doors just hoping for a slim body and a less chaotic life. But after a few months of sessions with her I got something even better: self love and acceptance. She helped me listen to my inner needs that have been screaming to get my attention for a while now and helped me to process them. Instead of simply losing weight, I learned how to honor and listen to my needs.. And it's been wonderful. I can't recommend Dana enough.
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.
My husband and I did marriage counseling with Jay and really enjoyed it. We were long distance so our situation was unique but he did a great job and we used Skype so it felt like we were still there. We really liked all the quizzes and resources he gave us. Things came up that we didn't even think about before and he focused on our differences to make sure we could work through things together. We learned a lot about each other which was great. It really helped prepare us for marriage.
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.
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.
My partner and I are very excited to begin counseling sessions with Angela. We had a free consultation with her and we both loved her! She is very calming, compassionate and understanding. Everything she had to say was very supportive and made us very happy we found her.
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
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.
I help people solve problems with relationships so they can lead happier lives. I specialize in addiction, divorce, depression and anxiety.
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.
