Workshops and Training for Professionals
We regularly offer training for therapists, counselors, psychologists and other professionals in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, self-compassion, mindfulness, and other evidence-based therapies.
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.

At Portland Psychotherapy, we are committed to helping our clients who are struggling with anxiety, depression, and other life problems so that they can live fuller and more meaningful lives. Our commitment is not just to help our clients feel better, we help them to live better.
Our Colleagues Say It Best
Portland Psychotherapy is a unique and valuable resource in our community as it is staffed by therapists trained in various specialty areas. Drs. 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. I have no hesitation about continuing to refer my clients to Portland Psychotherapy and appreciate the high quality of care that is provided by the professionals in this practice.
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.
Portland Psychotherapy is special. I have the utmost confidence in each of the clinicians here. They are compassionate, genuine, and have formed a model clinic in the scientist-practitioner tradition. They are committed to effectively implementing research-supported treatments and also work to advance the science in our field through psychotherapy research. The clinic enjoys an outstanding reputation among other mental health professionals as a top-notch evidence-based practice. This is a place I would refer a family member or close friend.
This clinic is run by leading experts in the field, using evidence based methods that have been shown to work. If you are facing complex or long-standing problems then this is definitely the place to go. You will receive treatment from experienced, compassionate, well trained therapists who will deliver a high level of care. I have known and worked with Jason Luoma for over 6 years and can tell you that he is very committed to helping people develop lives that are fulfilling and satisfying.
