• About Counseling & Therapeutic Wellness

    Counseling & Therapeutic Wellness, LLC is a private practice in Portland, Oregon established with the hope to increase access to whole person, culturally responsive and evidence based counseling experiences.

    Individual and group counseling services are offered with hopes to help clients sense their aliveness and reconnect with their own “center” and resourcefulness to remain present for what/who they care about.

    Any clinical or logistical steps are aligned with the firm belief that all humans and identities have the right to live with health and dignity. 

    Counseling and therapy experiences are co-crafted with each client to match unique needs and aspirations and to act as potentially powerful vehicles for overall optimal health.


    Increase access to whole-person, culturally responsive and quality mental health care for psychological resilience and prevention of severe impacts of chronic stress on overall health of individuals, families and communities.



    Information, psychoeducation and invitations to ask questions and offer feedback are constantly offered to help clients feel aware of the purpose, relevance and aspired outcome of any therapeutic or logistical step. 


    Efforts are put to reduce barriers to mental healthcare access and meeting each person's specific needs.


     Counseling and therapy here are considered as growth oriented experiences where clients' own resources, cultural backgrounds, perspectives and aspirations are deeply valued. You have an opportunity here to work with a therapist on your psychological wellbeing without necessarily receiving a diagnosis.

    Outcome Based

    Clients are not expected to start their first session with well articulated "goals".  By collaboratively communicating with your counselor, you can open doors to healing possibilities, then co-craft a plan to move forward. Clients may simply have hopes and commitment to feel better, then gradually therapeutic goals can be clarified and refined.

    Feedback Informed

     Clients are viewed as experts on themselves and their regular feedback informs the process of carefully selecting and modifying therapeutic modalities to match their unique needs and offer culturally affirming experiences.
