Jenifer Piegaro

(LMFT)

About Me

I am a licensed family and marriage counselor in the state of Oregon. I have been working with families, couples, and individuals in a mental health capacity for over 15 years in various settings. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, parenting problems, family conflict and addiction. I also helped many people who have experienced chronic illness or emotional/physical/sexual abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive, with a light-hearted flare. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines person-centered, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and somatic counseling. I combine my modalities to be flexible and eclectic to meet with your unique and specific needs.

I am passionate about helping people much like yourself get in touch with your healthy self. I believe there is a healthier version of ourselves in each one of us. The problem arises when we lose track of it over the years and fall into unhealthy patterns. Together we explore this stuckness to help you move forward - out of these patterns into your healthy self. I will help you in our time together repair what once was broken as we discover your authentic self.

Please feel free to check out my website for more information about me and my experience. Choosing a counselor is a very important step and I want you to have all the information you need to make a well informed decision. I look forward to working with you. Website: www.lastingtransitions.com

Jenifer and I have been speaking regularly for almost a year. She has given me tools and insights to help me finally start enjoying life and being me. Thank you Jenifer!

I feel totally comfortable opening up to Jenifer (and I have never spoke on the phone or video messaged with anyone!), have been doing it for 7 months now. She's very very easy to talk to and super supportive.

Written by K.A. on Jul 01, 2017 after counseling with Jenifer for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, self esteem, and anger

Jenifer is incredible. In a few short sessions she was able to help me get to the root of some of my long time problems and shed light on issues I wasn't even aware of. She's intuitive and sensitive, but strong enough to make you face your demons head on. She really helped me out of an emotional crisis when nothing else was working. I'm so thankful for her help.

Jennifer is amazing. My husband and I have been working with her over the past couple of months and I feel that she is very understanding of both our needs and helps us work towards healing. She has incredible knowledge and insight with parenting, relationships, and childhood trauma. I've had various therapist over the past 25 years and I feel Jennifer is best that I have worked with.
