I am a licensed professional counselor in Oregon with over 15 years of experience working with adult, individuals, couples and families. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I have also helped many people who have experienced difficult life transitions, physical trauma (including athletic injury) and abuse.
My treatment approach is rooted in relationship and the genuine goodness of all human beings. I believe that we are all striving for psychological balance and flexibility. We regularly face seemingly insurmountable obstacles such as shame, doubt, fear, anxiety and depression. In response, we seek out very reasonable strategies of short-term relief in effort to move away from these undesired internal states. I am most interested in helping you understand what you most value. From there I am invested in helping you accept and claim those values, lean into the undesired internal states and frightening external obstacles, and understand what coping styles may help you forge a path towards your long-term valued goals. With the therapeutic relationship as a vehicle, I strive to create an environment that helps you continuously move towards what is most important in your life.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and free life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

LPC #4810 (Expires: 2021-07-31)
Tyson is first off, a very easy person to talk with and get to know. He's personable and relatable. He's highly skilled and research based but makes information accessible and easy to digest to his clients. In other words, he makes things digestible to your level. He's a real person with his own life and struggles which I appreciate. I have learned a great deal, been able to put things into action with his help and feel supported and celebrated with Tyson.
Tyson has an incredible ability to focus in on the sometimes vague and/or disparate adjectives I toss out to describe my feelings, intentions, goals, questions, etc., and then to provide a concise, clear, single sentence. His ability to provide me with language to understand my own internal dialogues is worth every penny. He listens well and makes it clear that he is alongside you for the long haul, which is what I have been searching for for a very long time.
Tyson is a skilled, caring therapist. I feel like I am growing every time we meet. Tyson gives me practical things to try in my daily life that help me be more aware of my self, my feelings, and my interactions with others. I'm learning so much with Tyson and I'm glad that he was selected to be my counselor.
Tyson was instrumental in getting me through a very difficult time and continues to support me as I work through my feelings as I come out the other side.
Tyson fosters a safe and encouraging environment in which I am able to continually learn and grow.
Tyson did a really good job and I can finally say that I don't need therapy right now, since I am in much better shape. He was my counselor for about 5 or 6 months for depression, best therapist I've had. He helped me accomplish many of my career and personal goals, and I am much happier than I was now. When you align with your values with career, family, or anything else in your life, your life becomes much better. He also left me with a few techniques I can work on so I can continue to work on observing and overcoming my negative thoughts and behaviors. I would highly recommend. Thank you Tyson!
Mr. Rittenmeyer is absolutely amazing... I loved the fact that I could rant and lessen my load without a problem. His is very skilled and asks the right questions... questions which you probably don't or won't ask yourself. I would like to thank him for taking time out of his busy life and helping me out
