About Me

My name is Jane Addis Docken. I'm a native Oregonian, born and raised, living all of my life in Oregon until recently when I transplanted to Washington to live closer to my adult daughters and granddaughters. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Oregon since 2001 and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Washington State since I moved to Washington in 2017 and have been practicing since 1995. I have experience working with clients with a wide range of issues including depression and anxiety, childhood and adult trauma, stress (and wow, don't we all experience that), relationship and communication problems with couples/families, anger management, self esteem and body concerns as well as coaching and guiding clients on how to live and thrive in this very weird point-in-time we are all experiencing.

I love hearing the stories people want to share & helping them find solutions to their problems. I look forward to hearing your stories and concerns. I believe in focusing on building skills & reframing negative thoughts with a positive spin. I practice using a variety of therapeutic strategies, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Trauma Informed Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Mindfulness and Person Centered and Humanistic Therapies. I believe in meeting someone where they currently are in their growth and helping them achieve those things that have previously seemed out of reach and I firmly believe there is no such thing as a silly reason for reaching out for counseling.

I congratulate you for seeking assistance with your concerns; it's a courageous step to take and sometimes a little scary. I understand how fear can keep us stuck. As an example, I once jumped out of an airplane on a noteworthy birthday, primarily because I have a fear of heights. It was crazy scary and exhilarating at the same time and gave me such a sense of accomplishment by facing that fear. While I will be straight with you and gently confront where it's needed, I'm also a total softy and I'm moved to tears by the abused animal commercials.

Take that leap of faith to see what kinds of things we can accomplish together. In the meantime, stay safe and always remember to take deep breaths.

I am lucky to have hit the ball right out of the park with this therapist. She’s a home run match for the therapist that I need to help me over some of the many things that are and have been bothering me. She’s a pleasure to share my story with, I feel lucky to have found someone that has her well rounded approach to therapy.

Only have had 3 sessions, but feel she is very attentive and quick to grasp the issues and very good at discussing/offering solutions. I am comfortable with her and am relieved to have her help during this difficult time where I don't feel like I have anyone else who can help me.

Very straight forward and that’s the type of counselor I was looking for.

I have only met with Jane once, officially, but she is amazing. She is so supportive, listens well, and gives really great ideas on how to overcome your issues. I am so thankful for this opportunity to meet Jane, I will always remember her techniques and advice.

Jane has helped me more in a few sessions than others ever have. She has understood my challenges and provided me the tools to immediately improve my responses in multiple areas of my life. I appreciate her directness, the clarity of her vision and of her assistance. I highly recommend her!!

Jane has been such a helpful and open listener. I have enjoyed working through some tough conversations with her. She has helped remind me of my humanness and imperfections by recognizing them as 100% normal. Would recommend!

She has been great listening and offering options as I tried to navigate how to handle my cousin and his wife separating. Proactively checked in and offered great assistance during our session.
