I find meaning in helping others build supportive environments and relationships. I can help you build healthy habits with yourself and others, and guide your journey to finding your own life’s meaning. Making sustainable positive changes and getting to deeply know oneself can provide powerful impacts throughout one’s life. By using an integrated psychotherapy approach and applying appropriate theories, methods, and techniques, this can assist you with leading your life in awareness, accepting of self and others, and creating more fulfilling relationships. Helping others choose and discover a better way of living and awakening to inner peace and happiness brings me joy.
Audra Lee, LPC, LMHC, NCC
Individual Psychotherapist (Adults)
Licensed & Board Certified Counselor
I am here to listen to your story to gently help you sort through what might feel like a big overwhelming pile of mess, whether from self-criticism, unwanted emotions, too much stress, unresolved interpersonal traumas, a nagging sense of dissatisfaction with life circumstances or career path, or just feeling stuck. These issues may be manifesting in a variety of ways such as anxiety, depression, burnout, emotional intensity, physical health challenges, and/or relationship issues. Together we’ll uncover the truth of what your pain is trying to tell you about yourself, what’s really important to you, and what is and is not working in your life. This is such an important precursor to lasting change, and it’s not easy or necessary to do it alone.

Strengthening families, reducing conflicts and stress, and opening lines of communication. I work with individuals, teens and families struggling with the negative effects of depression, anxiety, mood swings, poor self-image, drug and alcohol problems, truancy and other behavior problems. I specialize in working with survivors of sexual abuse, helping them to heal, rebuild trust and improve their self-concept. I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in Oregon, having completed my Master’s in counseling from Portland State University. Passionate about my work, my approach is practical, honest, creative and hopeful.
Mental Health Therapist
I believe in an integrative, holistic approach to mental wellness. In therapy, I will take the time to hear your story and the unique experiences that have brought you to reaching out for support and come up with a plan that is right for you. My approach is empathic and strengths-based. It is my goal to empower each person I work with to rediscover their own inner wisdom and truth, and to help them make the necessary changes in their lifestyle and in their relationships that reflects that inner knowing. I work with individuals and couples who find that the experiences of anxiety, depression, chronic stress, self-doubt, or challenging relationships are what brings them to seek mental healthcare. Therapy provides a safe space to experience what it’s like to reconnect with your authentic self in the presence of another human being. As a therapist, I support this process through the use of mindfulness tools, cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, Gestalt techniques, and other methods as appropriate to your individualized treatment plan. I would be honored to share those moments of awakening with you and to support you toward learning how to express the fullest, most vibrant version of yourself in your significant relationships and other areas of your life.
Darlene Sochin MS, RMT
Energy Healer, Reiki Master, Access Bars Practitioner
My present career as an Energy Healer and Life Support Mentor started long ago. I’ve always known I wanted to create fun, loving, experiences for children. I was a classroom teacher for over 25 years and received a Master’s Degree in Parenting Education in 1999. Being with families as a kind and compassionate resource fed my soul. Yet, it was not until I was diagnosed with cancer in 2005 that I found holistic approaches to working with families in a deeper and more expansive way. So, I started my own energy healing practice for clients in 2008 right here in Portland, Oregon.
Teri Jaeger, LMT
Rosen Method Bodywork Practitioner and Movement Teacher
My interest in bodywork began after a car accident in 2004. The physical therapists I met used a variety of hands-on techniques. This type of manual work was very different from the physical therapy I received after a car accident in 1986. All of the physical therapy was helpful but when I was introduced to Rosen Method Bodywork in 2008 I found something that treated my whole self. After 3 Rosen Method Bodywork sessions I traveled to CA to meet Marion Rosen. Meeting Jane Malek and getting introduced to Rosen Method Movement was a bonus! I was immediately immersed in a life-changing process.

Heidi Swartzmiller, LMFT-Intern, Birth Doula
Nice to meet you, I’m Heidi.
I’m passionate about seeing people through a biopsychosocial-spiritual lens. I view my clients within the greater context of their lives, and strive to tease out the systems that may be hindering their path to wellness. I believe people were meant to live in relationship, and that it is in this sharing of your life with another that conflict and tension can arise. Emotional wounds can come in all forms, from the least likely of places, and do not need to be carried alone. I am here, if only to say, healing is for you.
Spencer Byl, MA
Marriage and Family Therapy Intern
I work with individuals (teens and adults) and couples while incorporating a body-centered, mindful approach to therapy. Together, we will cultivate a space of compassion, curiosity, and kindness, where you are allowed to experience and explore all of the parts of yourself as they arise. I hope to create a relationship with you that fosters safety, acceptance, and ultimately courage to change. Whether you are struggling in your relationships, battling depression or anxiety, or perhaps you simply feel stressed, therapy can help!
Instead of only talking about a problem, we will gently engage your struggle in the mindful, present moment. As we explore your experience in the here-and-now with a curious awareness, we can help identify parts of you that are hurting while learning more deeply about what they need to find peace. Our work together can help uncover your strengths, heal your internal wounds, and help you discover in yourself a deep self-acceptance.
Jacqueline Holden, MA
I believe that all human beings seek to know themselves and that they have the capacity to develop and change. I also believe that human beings are resilient and are able learn and grow from their life experiences. My skills and techniques used in counseling come from a cognitive-behavioral base, however I understand that no two clients are the same and I draw support from many different areas. I strive to be empathetic and socially deft, and provide a safe and encouraging therapeutic atmosphere. My goal is to build a positive therapeutic relationship, and in doing so prepare the client for the process of counseling. We will discuss the client’s expectations and goals for counseling, and will continue to evaluate them throughout the counseling process.
