Hello, my name is Shonna, and I'm a master's level counselor in training at Oregon State University – Cascades. I aim to provide a warm, nurturing environment where individuals can explore their inner worlds and strengths and feel supported when facing challenges. I believe you are the expert in your own life, and together, we embark on a collaborative, non-directive, and integrated exploration of your mental health. I am working towards specializing in guiding individuals through the intricate terrain of grief and trauma and offering support to those facing the complexities of navigating substance abuse disorder. I view the role of counselor as very sacred and I am dedicated to walking alongside you on your unique path to healing and growth.
My name is Megan, and I am a 2nd-year master's level counseling intern here at the OSU-Cascades Community Clinic. A series of unfortunate events honed my desire to work in mental healthcare, and it is my deep honor and privilege to be here. My counseling orientation is Existential, which sounds headier than it is — I am fascinated by the problems of everyday existence and how we make sense of and have courage in this wild and precious life. Once upon a time I was a painter and in my free time you can find me drinking coffee, eating anything and everything sugary and diving into art theory or medical journals. My favorite quote is "It's complicated," and I get a lot of peace from watching things grow in my backyard garden.
