Alex Rassekh, LPC
Hi, my name is Alex Rassekh, I am bilingual in Persian (Farsi) and welcome clients of all cultural backgrounds. I specialize in helping adults and adolescents reach their potential and improve the well-being of their lives. I utilize an integrative approach in my practice, in that different therapy models are weaved together to tailor services to your unique personality and needs. Central to my approach is the creation of a warm, safe and unconditionally accepting, non-judgmental environment. In this space we can more easily be ourselves and authentically participate in a therapeutic relationship, where we will work together as a team to help improve your life and reach your goals.
My formal educational background consists of a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling, as well as degrees in bio-chemical engineering. I am a licensed mental health clinician (LPC) in the state of Oregon, which means that I have met all of the requirements and standards of practicing mental health professionals as set forth by state boards.

Andrea Larsen, Registered Marriage and Family Therapist Associate
Supervisor: Heidi Schelling
I believe that therapy is a unique and sacred space where the client can speak freely and honestly about the things they care about and would like to see improve. I believe the client is the expert on their own life and experiences. As a therapist, I will strive to create a brave space where the client is able to feel heard, supported, and empowered to tackle life’s challenges.
I believe in a systems perspective, and see individuals not simply as an individual, but as part of a larger system. I like to involve the family system when appropriate. Attachment theory plays an important role in how I view others. I will engage clients in a strengths-based approach through the theory of Emotionally Focused Therapy and use Child Centered Play Therapy for younger children. I am also trained in Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). I see clients of all ages. I respect and affirm people of all sexualities, genders, and races.

Therapy is a place for people to grow, change, and unfurl within themselves and their families. I understand this process can be uncomfortable at times, as new or old emotions and experiences elbow their way to the front of our consciousness. I am committed to listening, helping, and working with any concerns and making adjustments as we process experiences together.
I believe in the power of play for all ages, and I use playful engagement with my clients to ensure everyone feels empowered and able to connect within themselves. I utilize a body-based approach centered on the need for the body and brain to integrate for healing and growth to take place. The central theories I rely on in my practice have common threads of trauma healing, attachment, family system influence, psychoeducation, and narrative structuring. I have provided services in a variety of settings, including group and communal living programs, addiction and substance related services, community outreach programs, and school-based intervention services. I affirm and honor all people across the gender and sexuality spectrums.

Jason Cheung, Registered Professional Counselor Associate
Supervisor: Heidi Schelling
Life is hard, and it is easy to get caught up in the busyness of trying to stay afloat. These challenges or past experiences characterize themselves in depression, anxiety, conflict, loneliness, and relationship concerns. Therapy is a place to grow, process, and develop new skills to reach your goals. Together, in partnership, we can break these cycles as we work together towards healing. I am committed to listen, engage, advocate, and create a space for you to work towards who you would like to be as an individual or family.
My therapeutic approach is strength based through a relational lens. The models I utilize that shape my clinical approach are Trauma-Focused CBT, Person-Centered Therapy, and Gestalt Therapy. I work with children, teens, adults, and families. I enjoy integrating play and expressive arts within my interventions. As a person of color, I aim to provide a space that is affirming and inclusive to all cultures, sexuality, and gender spectrums.

Rebeca Velazquez, Registered Marriage and Family Therapist Associate
Supervisor: Heidi Schelling
As a person of color, I aim to provide a space that is affirming, inclusive, and culturally sensitive. It is my goal to help clients feel validated and empowered with their life experiences. I take an integrative approach with the understanding that every human is unique and can grow, heal, and reach their goals in different ways. My therapeutic style is strengths-based with a relational lens. Some of the models that shape my clinical approach are Solution-Focused, Dialectical Behavior, Cognitive-Behavioral, and Person-Centered therapies. I work with children, adolescents, adults, and families and often incorporate play, art, and creative interventions in my work. I am bilingual (English/Spanish). I respect and affirm people of all sexualities.

Sally Gradin, LCSW
Making the decision to reach out for support can be difficult. I am honored to walk alongside individuals and families wanting to grow and enjoy life more fully. I seek to provide safe space to share challenges; recognize the influence of personal and family history and trauma; and celebrate growth and healing. I take a holistic approach to address individual and family trauma with children, youth, and adults, including abuse, foster and adoption, and attachment rupture.
I blend connection and psychoeducation to build self-compassion and approaches toward depression, grief, anxiety, bipolar disorder, past trauma, and ongoing challenges. In addition to building family attachment, I have experience teaching in elementary and special education classrooms and in forming educational and behavioral accommodation plans. Years of international living also built desire to serve those newer or marginalized in a way to convey welcome, safety, and cultural sensitivity.
Life comes with challenges that can leave us feeling wounded when we’re trying to do the best we can. I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
