Healing is a balance between the past and the present. It incorporates life experiences, family of origin, culture, ethnicity, personal goals, and identified resources. Areas of concentration include a combination of mind, body, and soul. An exploration of what has happened in the past to where you are today provides a framework to create new spaces, outlooks, and a better way of life. My personal mantra is that Life is about Thriving, not just Surviving.

In my practice, I use a combination of many different healing techniques. It is a melding of ancient Eastern Mindfulness Practices with modern day Western Evidence Based Therapy Practices. In cognitive behavioral therapy, one of the most effective tools in today’s psychotherapy practices, you and I examine how your thoughts and actions dictate today, and how to alter them to create a new tomorrow. From a person/client centered approach, I see all people as capable of healing themselves, and truly believe in their ability to make positive change. Taking aspects from Dialectical Behavior Therapy, I teach emotional regulation (controlling the highs and lows) distress tolerance (skillfully handling a crisis), and interpersonal effectiveness (how to communicate successfully with others). These are essential components to lifelong skills. Motivational Interviewing, from an addiction recovery standpoint, allows clients to assess and make their own decisions and challenge themselves to move towards sobriety. In couples counseling, I combine Compassionate Communication with Nonviolent Communication and weave in Gottman Method concepts, in order to create effective communication along with an increased sense of intimacy, respect, and trust.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the State of Oregon for mental health counseling, a National Certified Addictions Therapist (MAC), and a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) with over 20 years of experience working with a wide variety of populations in many different environments, including inpatient, outpatient, therapeutic wilderness settings, jails, schools, and homes. My scope of counseling extends from individuals to couples, families, and groups. I enjoy working with a broad range of ages, from adolescents to the geriatric population. My mental health counseling experience, to name a few, covers depression, anxiety, PTSD, borderline, eating disorders, bipolar disorder, ADHD, anger management, grief and loss, and schizophrenia. I also have over 15 years experience working with clients who have drug, alcohol and gambling addictions, as well as those who are chronic criminal offenders. For clinicians, I offer clinical supervision towards state licensure for both LPC and LMFT.

My personal counseling philosophy does not simply look at mental health or addiction issues. It includes looking at all aspects of a person’s life: family, friends, job, living environment, recreation, diet, exercise, nutrition, spiritual practices, budget/finances, and past, present, and future experiences and goals. Long-term healing and change comes from within, and extends outward. I see therapy as a lifestyle that continues outside of the counseling room and into each integral aspect of your life.

As a Tai Chi, Qi Gong, and Kung Fu teacher, I also offer an alternative to traditional talk therapy. For some a combination of the two are helpful, for others they choose one or the other. Movement/ mindful therapy has shown benefits for anger management, depression, anxiety, trauma work, couples’ communication, addictions, prevention and cure for chronic physical illness, and mental fortitude. Particularly for teenagers, doing “martial arts” training is less intimidating and far more “cool” than having to see a “therapist.”

I offer a generous sliding scale fee, which can be discussed at our first session. I look forward to meeting you and helping you transform your life into a place where you choose to sit, laugh, play, and most importantly, THRIVE!

Each of us has a deep desire to be connected to others, which directly impacts our mental, emotional, and physical health when connections are toxic. If you have experienced rejection, disappointment, abandonment, trauma or neglect especially early in life you may have learned to survive, but not thrive. This may leave you experiencing depression, anxiety, PTSD, panic attacks, or problems with intimacy. Many people attempt to cope with these feelings by using drugs, alcohol, prescription pills, food, anger, self-harm or other addictive behaviors. My hope is to help individuals identify how theses coping strategies develop early in early life and become barriers to living well.

I also have been trained as a Vocational Counselor to assist clients and people with disabilities who are in career transitions to identify skills and become prepared for the work world. I utilize a variety of models to facilitate the counseling process including mindfulness, Attachment models, IPNB, CBT, DBT skills, NVC, ACT, SAMHSA Recovery model, and humor. I have a deep respect for each person's pursuit of spirituality and practice a walk of faith of my own.

Areas of experience:

~ Depression / Anxiety / Bipolar Disorder / Hearing voices / Dual-Diagnosis
~ Learning disabilities & Aspergers Syndrome
~ Grief & Loss
~ Individuals or couples adjusting to illness or disability of a family member
~ Self-Esteem / persistent negative thinking
~ Workplace Concerns / Career transition / Job development

I do not charge for an initial consultation. If an ongoing relationship is established I charge $80 for a 50 minute session. I do not bill insurance and we can discuss sliding scale options. Because I am connected to a network of counselors if a referral is needed I would be more than willing to help you find the right fit as you move forward in your healing process.

Welcome to my "window" where you can get a view into my profile.

Choosing a therapist can be daunting yet important because you will be sharing a piece of yourself and undoubtedly want a safe environment and a counselor with whom you can connect.

The majority of my formative years were spent in Japan as a missionary kid, being raised in an orphanage setting with many "cousins". This gave me great compassion for others, an understanding of the challenges of major life transitions as well as fluency in Japanese and knowledge of the culture of Japan. I am a mother who lost an adult son. I also have understanding of the "long goodbye", having a parent with Alzheimer's disease. I experience a deep spiritual faith, but you can be assured that spirituality will only be a part of counseling if it is your desire.

After raising three sons and several international students, I completed my education at Eastern Washington University with a masters degree in Social Work. I have been in group and private practice, working with couples, adults and adolescents. I use cognitive behavioral therapy, Gottman therapy, solution focused therapy and strengths based therapy, joining with my clients to clarify obstacles, discover alternative perspectives and strengths and learn coping skills.

I work with couples who may just need a tweak or those who are struggling with infidelity and conflict. Other areas in which I specialize are anxiety, depression and domestic violence. You may expect a 50 minute office visit at a standard fee of of $40. You're invited to call me at 503-780-7346, visit my website at www.mcleancounseling.org or email me at cmcleancounseling@gmail.com for further information or to set up an appointment.

I look forward to hearing from you.

I am also a member of the American Counseling Association and the Oregon Mental Health Counseling Association.

I am currently working toward my LPC license.

I am passionate about providing care and acceptance to individuals with adversity. I am LGBTQI friendly.

I view counseling as a collaborative relationship between two individuals that promotes healing, behavioral change, personal and relational growth.

I hold a Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Capella University (a CACREP accredited program), and a Bachelor's degree in Anthropology from Portland State University. I am also a member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. I specialize in adolescents, relationship therapy, and self esteem issues. My focus is on alerting the client to the problem so that they may solve it, rather than solving it for them.

I work with individuals, couples, children and families. I conduct my practice in a way that is collaborative and respectful of clients, working together to reach your goals. I offer a complimentary phone consultation to allow us both to determine if we would be a good therapeutic fit. I truly look forward to beginning this journey with you.

I offer a sliding scale fee ranging from $20-70, depending on availability and what the client can afford. I do not accept insurance at this time. Please call me to schedule your first appointment; I look forward to meeting you.

The ever increasing challenges and stressors of our modern world can take a tremendous toll on our minds, bodies and spirits. I have spent many challenging and rewarding years helping individuals and families who are experiencing emotional, physical and social challenges. I enjoy the process of helping people find the strength and resources to better navigate life's obstacles. I utilize a variety of methodologies to tailor an individualized approach working with each person's strengths and preferences.

I work with adults and youth/adolescents, and specialize in these areas:

Depression ~ Life Changes ~ Problems with Relationships ~ Grief & Loss
Occupational, School & Social Problems ~ Stress ~ Sexual Problems ~ Abuse

The process of healing involves integration of the mind, body and spirit. I believe that everyone has a unique set of skills which can be accessed through the therapeutic process. I have found that much can be understood through a person's dreams, beliefs, creative expression and personal narrative. I am open and supportive of all individual lifestyles and choices.

We live in very challenging times which can be overwhelming and we all deserve the chance to be able to talk to someone who can help. In order to keep therapy affordable for all, I offer my sessions at just $40. Sliding scale fees can be arranged based on need. In order to keep costs down I currently do not accept insurance. Payment of cash or check is collected at the end of each 50 minute session. Afternoon and evening hours are available. Call or email to schedule an appointment. If after the initial 25 minute consultation either party decides that it is not a good fit, no fee will be charged.

"It is the client who knows what hurts, what directions to go, what problems are crucial, what experiences have been deeply buried." ~ Carl Rogers

I firmly believe that every person has the potential to be the best version of him-or-herself that he or she can possibly be, and that people are the experts of their own lives. I employ a down to earth person-centered approach to counseling, interspersed with doses of humor when appropriate. I take on the role of facilitator to help you become empowered to make the changes you want for your life.

I use techniques from several different kinds of psychotherapy - Schema Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Theory (CBT), Gestalt, Solution- Focused Brief Therapy - to help you explore and work on your problems, depending on your current needs and goals. I am comfortable working with a variety of people, including those whose culture is different than my own, and people who may be experiencing significant mental health issues.

I hold a Master of Science (MS) degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Walden University (a CACREP-accredited institution). I also hold a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Anthropology, with a minor in Psychology, from Oregon State University. I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC), and a Certified Grief Counselor (GC-C).

Areas of focus:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Grief/Loss/Bereavement
  • LGBQTI issues/support
  • PTSD
  • Trauma
  • Adolescent/Young adult issues
  • Emotional regulation
  • Self-esteem
  • Life transitions


  • My fee is $60 for a 50-minute session, but I do have a sliding fee scale for those who may be experiencing significant financial hardship. I do not accept insurance, but will provide you with a receipt for services. Payment is due at the beginning of session so we can make the best use of the rest of our time together.

    Having a comfortable therapeutic relationship is important, so I offer a free 30-minute consultation to make sure I’m the right 'fit' for you. If we decide I am not the right therapist for you, I am happy to provide a referral to one of my very capable colleagues at Wise Counsel and Comfort.

    Do you feel held back by hard experiences in your past? Do you feel tired and frustrated by negative thoughts? Do you feel stuck having the same arguments with your partner again and again? I believe that all people need help from time to time, and that people do well if they can.

    I use the philosophies of trauma-informed and client-centered care in my work. I search for and capitalize on the internal resources and collective strengths of couples, families and individuals to bolster their efforts throughout the change process. I see the therapeutic change as a necessarily collaborative process, honoring the expertise of each individual in their own experience. I truly believe that each individual, couple, and family has the ability to heal, grow, and feel deep satisfaction in their lives.

    I earned a Master's degree in marriage, couple, and family therapy from Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling. I have experience in individual, couple, and family therapy. I also have specific experience working with domestic violence survivors, people going through gender/sexual transition, and "explosive" children and their families. I offer poly, kink, and LGBTQIA affirming therapy and am knowledgeable about the unique challenges of members of these communities.

    My fee is $40 for a 50-minute session with a sliding scale option available. I offer a 30-minute consultation meeting at no charge. Please contact me by phone or email to schedule an appointment.
