About Heather Lokteff
I believe in the transformative power of a safe, supportive, collaborative and confidential relationship that therapy provides. People who have been hurt in relationships can also heal through relationships. I value identifying people’s strengths, sharing insights and feedback, providing practical educational resources and tools, and creating a compassionate, non-judgmental space to be heard and listened to. My clients inspire me, I enjoy partnering with them to work through problems and make lasting changes, and I love coming to work everyday.
I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Oregon. I finished my Masters in Counseling Psychology in 2006 and I have 13+ years experience providing therapy to a variety of clients. Prior to starting my own practice in 2011 I worked at various non-profit agencies providing in-home and intensive community-based treatment for children and families in crisis and/or DHS involvement. My therapeutic approach pulls from the principles of cognitive behavioral therapy, attachment theory, emotion focused therapy, and family systems theory.
I have experience and training working with the following:
- Anxiety and depression, Stress management
- Abuse and trauma recovery
- Teen counseling
- Life transitions and personal growth
- Relationship, marriage, couples counseling
- Post-divorce, blended families, stepparenting
