Hi, My name is Melissa Gomsrud, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Oregon, and a National Certified Counselor. I have over 19 years of experience in the field of mental health and currently operate a private counseling practice in Oregon. I primarily work with people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, grief and loss, parenting issues, career issues, and other life challenges.
I enjoy supporting people in their personal therapy journey. My style is warm and down to earth. I draw from a variety of therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Brief Solution Focused Therapy, to assist you in sharing your story, resolve conflicts and accomplishing peaceful change. It is my belief that problems are often developed and sustained through well-established habits of thinking and behavior. I provide a safe setting, and have a respectful approach, to addressing problems. I work in partnership with you, utilizing your strengths and resources to create positive change!

I've had anxiety for as long as I can remember, and I've seen a few different therapists, but Melissa is by far the best.
From day one I felt incredibly comfortable with her. Her insight and compassion have led me through some bad times, and her warm approach and guidance have helped me readdress my thinking and work on my bad mental habits. She's understanding, kind, and has an unmatched depth of experience.
I would recommend Melissa to anyone who is ready to change his/her thinking and put in the work to become a better and happy person. I don't have enough great things to say about my experience with Melissa!
Melissa has been extremely helpful. In the months that I have been working with her, I have seen a definite improvement in how I cope with my emotions and my reactions to situations.
She's awesome. Nuff said
Melissa Gomsrund is very accommodating to the type of communication I prefer. She took time to learn what I need in our sessions and has offered me tremendous support and direction. She is easy to talk with and I always feel like it's her goal to serve me and keep me focused on achieving my goals. It's nice knowing she is in my corner and available when I need.
Melissa has given me amazing advice on how to better navigate my anxiety and things that cause my anxiety. It feels great knowing that there's always someone there to listen and provide relevant feedback and support.
My counselor has already been a great help to me. We have set up goals and each week have milestones to reach to keep moving forward. I feel like my professional is tailored to my needs as well, she has similar life experiences and has insights that reach further than a typical clinical setting. I'm very pleased so far with my experience.
Melissa has helped me in so many ways. I'm dealing with more than I ever thought possible and I've never been so open and comfortable with talking about it. I'm overcoming problems I didn't even know existed. She's hands down the best therapist I've had in my whole life. She's constantly giving me ideas and the support I need.
