Welcome and thank you for viewing my profile. My name is Porshea' Pendleton, LMFT. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Oregon with 24 years of professional work experience in aiding clients with depression, PTSD, anxiety, relationship challenges, and substance abuse concerns. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 28 years of experience in mental health care. I have dedicated myself to empowering clients to heal the pain within their lives. I support my clients with the above challenges. I work from a Christian faith-based perspective for clients seeking to expand their relationship with God. I aid clients with a focus on CBT, solution-focused, and Gestalt therapeutic interventions. In addition, I work with couples with the treatment objectives of John Gottman. The client's treatment objectives tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet one's unique and specific needs. Ready in making this year one of the many amazing years to come? Congratulation on taking the first step to sign up for therapy. Making this step takes courage and can be scary.

Porshea is very easy going and a great listener even though I can ramble a bit. She helps see things with another perspective.

I really like how compassionate she is and the fact that she helps addresses your current issues with understanding. She is relatable and makes you feel comfortable and confident in addressing the needs you currently have. She is open, honest, and relatable and makes you feel like you have a friend who genuinely cares almost equivalent to family. If I could claim her as a family I would, she is amazing. Highly recommend her! :>
