GET TO KNOW US

Find the right provider for you

Each person on our team specializes in different areas of mental health care. Some see adolescents, some see adults and some see both. Providers practice using various styles, have different clinical interests as well as diverse personalities. While each person has specialties, everyone will be qualified to treat more general mental health problems and concerns. All providers follow the mission for our practice: to treat our clients and each other well and to basically be good humans to each other. Please ask any questions along the way as you search for that goodness of fit between you and a clinician.


We are in the process of adding more clinicians. It's been a rough few years and we are excited to be adding more members to our group soon. Stay tuned!

STEPHANIE SNOW, MS, LPC

Owner and Psychotherapist

I am an optimist, always looking for another way to solve the problem and move forward in life despite the &^%*#!!. I'm a licensed psychotherapist; I have been a therapist for 15+ years and am the owner of this group practice. Born in Europe, I grew up in Asia and the South and moved to Oregon years ago to attend the doctoral program at Pacific University in Clinical Psychology. I found a fulfilling profession and now call this rainy city my hometown. You may have known me under my previous last name: Brown.

I have been told I am compassionate, direct, honest, challenging and persistent. All of this is true: I don't believe in wasting your time or mine. I want to get to the heart of the matter with you.​ While life can get difficult, sometimes a little help from a professional can make things better. I have always loved psychology and feel grateful to be able to work with inspiring people every day. I value honesty, trust, compassion and personal strength and I hope to use these characteristics and values to provide you with the tools you need in order to seize back your life.

I practice psychodynamic therapy. 'I will want to get to know you and help you gain insight into who you are and how you relate to others. 

Specialties & Interests: Older adolescents and adults, individuals and groups. I do not see couples. Complex trauma, emotional manipulation and personality disorders are my specialties however I have a lot of experience treating many mental health problems and crises. I have worked in my own office, a group practice, in an agency setting, in a hospital setting and in the community. Ask questions; feel free to contact me. I look forward to meeting you. 

I am the owner of our group practice so my wait list is longer than most as I am unable to take on clients quickly, however, I plan to run our group on how to deal with emotional manipulation in 2022.

AMANDA SAWYER

Professional Counselor Associate


I am an Oregon native! Born and raised here, yet I know there is still so much of this state to explore! I am passionate about nature and the healing it brings. In my free time, I enjoy music, socializing, various nature-based hobbies, learning new recipes and tending to my growing collection of plants. I have a cute cat that brings me joy along with a few scratches. 

I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from Portland State University with a major in Psychology. I hold a Master of Arts in Counseling from Lewis and Clark Graduate School. I completed many ecopsychology along with my counseling courses. I am a professional counselor associate.

I am dedicated to helping you experience more self-awareness and an increased sense of peace as you journey through some of life’s most disruptive moments. I practice from a trauma-informed and person-centered approach. I recognize you are the expert on you and what you have experienced. I will work to help you in your process of deciding what meaning you want to make of your experiences as well as how to bring a mindful self-compassionate approach to your life. I use mindfulness and draw on nature and invite it into our work together if this is something you are comfortable with. I collaborate with you to cultivate a space for you to feel safe, seen and valued. 

Most of us arrive in therapy to get some help overcoming old stories. Connection has a way of providing us with the opportunity to stretch and grow beyond what we thought possible. This process is not without challenges, and you don’t have to suffer through it alone. This is the gift of therapy. 


Specialties & Interests: I work with individuals, both adults and adolescents, adult couples and groups. My experience lends itself to addressing the following concerns:  grief and loss, trauma, self-esteem, relationship obstacles, addiction concerns, family issues, attachment issues, depression, anxiety, life transitions and more. I am here to answer any questions you may have about my training and experience. I am accepting a limited number of clients at this time. I prefer in person sessions with client.

RYAN MARSHALL

Professional Counselor Associate

I enjoy the culture and places of the Pacific Northwest. I spend my free time kayak-fishing, hiking to a river or lake to fish, camping near good fishing spots... really having any excuse to go fishing. I also garden at home, and enjoy the consistent effort of landscape maintenance. I am a fan of several sports teams and thoroughly enjoy my own recreational (competitive) athletics. 


I value authenticity, openness, trust, and adaptability. I strive to bring these values to therapy and to guide my work with you.


I believe the working relationship between therapist and client is the most important foundation for effective counseling. In my work with clients, I employ an evidence-based approach that draws on an integration of multiple psychological theories. I believe that everyone has the capacity to develop and grow regardless of background or life experiences, and with support and guidance they can not only reach a healthy and improved level of functioning, but excel in life and in their personal and professional pursuits. 


I have worked as a consultant in the field of psychology since 2015. I hold a Master’s degree in Sport and Performance Psychology from the University of Denver and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Oregon State University. Additionally, I maintain a Certified Mental Performance Consultant (CMPC) credential which means I have acquired the training and skillset to work with athletes and other performers to develop the skills necessary for high performance and to more thoroughly enjoy their pursuits of excellence.


Specialties and Interests: I work with adults, individuals, couples, and groups. I am particularly passionate about men's mental health, helping military members and their families, and supporting individuals in their professional pursuits. My experience lends itself to work with the following concerns: fear and anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, addiction, loss, self-image and confidence, school or career transitions, and generally feeling unable to move closer to what is important in one's life. I would be happy to talk with you. Please reach out with any questions!  I have a wait list currently.

LIZ ASH

Professional Counselor Associate and Art Therapist Associate

Liz is the newest additions to our team. 

The first time I drove through Oregon four years ago, I felt like I arrived home. Years later, I have finally transplanted myself from Kansas and I’m so gratified to enjoy all of the unique attributes that Oregon has to offer. I am excited to be here!


I believe that the path to transformation and healing comes from a personal decision to pursue change through a growth mindset. This growth mindset is facilitated through a working alliance between you and me. We will work together to better understand how your thoughts and emotions are cultivated in order to reach your goals. 

I have a Masters of Science Degree in Clinical Counseling with a concentration in Addictions and a Masters of Science Degree in Art Therapy from Emporia State University. My guiding theory is a person centered approach with a social justice framework which can be supplemented with art therapy interventions.”
