About Me

Hi, My name is Melissa Gomsrud, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Oregon, and a National Certified Counselor. I have over 20 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.

Melissa knows me so well and has helped me to overcome SO much anxiety about motherhood, parenting, and related family stress. She's helped me look at my thought patterns from a different perspective and to be more mindful and present in general. My conversations with her have been invaluable!

I love working with Melissa. She is patient and understanding, offers good tips and suggestions, as well as an array of literature to consider (or not) as needed. I feel like I’m making a lot of progress working with her.

Written by S.A. on Aug 26, 2019 after therapy with Melissa for 7 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, sleeping disorders, and coping with life changes

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 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.

Written by S.U. on Feb 13, 2019 after therapy with Melissa for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and coping with life changes

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.

Written by S.A. on Feb 10, 2019 after therapy with Melissa for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

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.

Work with me!
