The Depression Treatment Program at Portland Psychotherapy is dedicated to devusing methods of treating depression that are based on the best science that is available. This is known as evidence-based practice and means we use what science has to say to guide our practice in choosing what is most likely to help. Currently, we have several counselors providing Portland therapy services.
Shadee Hardy is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Oregon. She describes her approach to psychotherapy in the following manner: “My approach is holistic and demonstrates a deep appreciation for the uniqueness of each individual. I provide a warm, genuine, and validating environment in which we can safely explore that which is, and is not, working. I believe the foundation of individual mental health involves having a positive relationship with ourselves. Our relationship with our self impacts our relationships with others, the choices we make, the expectations we set for self and others, and how we view the world outside of us.” To learn more about Shadee Hardy, LCSW, you can visit her profile page.

Dr. Doehne is a Licensed Psychologist in Oregon (#2880). He has a Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology and describes his approach to psychotherapy in the following manner: “In order to be as effective as possible in helping clients achieve positive outcomes, I use evidence-based psychotherapies. Like many of the people I work with, I come to this having had a diverse range of life experiences that shape who I am and how I approach my work. I have spent much of my training and early career in organizations that support social justice, equality, and the delivery of culturally-competent services to marginalized populations. These experiences have fostered values of humility, openness, acceptance, and respect for the inherent worth of each individual I work with. I honor the dignity and choice of clients as they explore and evaluate difficult experiences on their path toward healing. I meet people in the process of change exactly where they are, but also act as a guide to get them to where they want to be.” To learn more about Dr. Doehne, you can visit his profile page.

Dr. Izmirian is a Licensed Psychologist in Oregon (#2876). She has a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and describes her approach to the psychotherapy in the following manner: “I see therapy as a collaborative process. I try to help clients find what isn’t working in their lives and help them “try on” different ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving. I believe that the client is the one who can ultimately tell me what does and does not work for them. Although I make it a point to use evidence-based practices, I also take into consideration each client’s diverse life circumstances when considering how I can be helpful. As a child of immigrant parents, I learned early on that upbringing, background, language, and traditions are diverse and affect people as they live their lives. Hence, I take into consideration the context of my client’s life, as well as the current world climate, when exploring issues and what would be most effective in their path for change.” To learn more about Dr. Izmirian, you can visit her profile page.

Kyong Yi is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Oregon. She describes her approach to psychotherapy in the following manner: “I approach therapy as a partnership. You are the expert on your life. My role is to facilitate a process to increase your strength and resilience, empower you in moving towards your goals, help heal from emotional pain, and break free from patterns that have acted as barriers to the life you want to live. I use therapeutic interventions that are grounded in scientific research, pulling from different evidence-based therapies to best serve you. I am committed to maintaining awareness of new research findings and incorporating research supported interventions into my practice. I believe (and scientific research supports) the most important component to success in therapy is your relationship to your therapist. This is where our work begins. In my office you will find acceptance and safety to promote your self-discovery and challenge you towards making positive change.” To learn more about Kyong Yi, LCSW, you can visit her profile page.

Jason Luoma, Ph.D.
Dr. Luoma is a Licensed Psychologist in Oregon (#1661). He has a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and describes his approach to the psychotherapy in the following manner: “I provide evidence-based psychotherapy for people who are struggling with the difficulties that life often presents, to help them let go of that struggle and create whole, vital lives that can be lived with integrity. I strive to help people live better, to be more fully alive in their lives, present to each moment, and accepting of themselves. I help people to clarify what matters most in their lives and act toward that end. I tend to be fairly active in therapy and provide structure in sessions to help people learn new and more effective ways of responding to troubling emotions and thoughts that can serve as barriers to fuller, richer lives. Many of the methods I use come from a type of cognitive behavioral therapy called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy(ACT). To learn more about Dr. Luoma, you can visit his personal webpage.

Jenna LeJeune, Ph.D.
Dr. LeJeune is a Licensed Psychologist in Oregon (#1600). She has a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and describes her approach to the psychotherapy in the following manner: “I use very pragmatic and client-directed approach. I do not subscribe to an ‘illness/disease’ based model of psychotherapy that I find to be stigmatizing and limiting. I work from a collaborative and respectful place to help clients explore what is and isn’t working in their lives and utilize empirically supported treatments, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, whenever possible. Most importantly, I strive to always treat clients with dignity, respect, and compassion as I work to help them create for themselves the kind of meaningful life they desire.” To learn more about Dr. LeJeune, you can visit her profile page.
