Offering Telehealth and in person-services
We are accepting new clients for telehealth in Oregon, California, and Washington and in-person therapy services in Portland.
At Portland Psychotherapy, rather than trying to be something for everyone, we seek to specialize in what we do best and offer services that relate to those areas of practice.
We are conveniently located in the rapidly growing Williams District of N Portland. We practice in a warm, friendly, peaceful, and newly renovated 1889 Victorian home that has been converted into offices.
Our team of therapists are specialized in a variety of different areas of practice. Many are also researchers, which helps stay on top of the newest science of what works in therapy. Rather than trying to be something for everyone, our aim is to provide the best services possible within our specialty areas. Take a look at our team and see if anyone is a good match for what you are looking for.
Conveniently located on N Williams Ave in Portland, our renovated 1889 Victorian provides a warm & inviting space.

LeJeune and Luoma, who started the clinic, are highly respected professionals in the community, known for their extensive knowledge and expertise as therapists, researchers, and trainers. I have referred several of my clients to Portland Psychotherapy and have been most impressed and reassured by the feedback I have received about their experience.

Portland Psychotherapy is a unique practice. It not only provides knowledgeable, compassionate and highly effective treatments for their clients, but it is also a place where the therapists are actively involved in cutting edge clinical research to find ever more effective ways to serve their clients to help improve the quality of their lives. I know all of the therapists in this practice through participation in an ongoing peer consultation group for over 2 years, and I can say without hesitation that these are the professionals I would send my family and friends to if they needed help.
