Gudmund Lee

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I believe we all struggle and need a little help from time to time. Whether you feel stuck on an old problem or are trying to overcome some new challenge, it is my job to help you unlock your potential and come up with real-life practical solutions that you can implement in the here and now.

My Approach

My approach to therapy is compassionate and direct. I will be respectful, but honest. I routinely give homework assignments as part of therapy, with the belief that if you accomplish the task you will start to experience the change you seek. I will try to understand both the nature and context of your problem and the potential impact of change before I offer helpful solutions. I will ask you about where you are trying to go, and we will work together to develop a practical plan to help you get there. I also believe we do not exist in a vacuum. We live in relationship with others and have just as big an impact on the world as it has on us. A small change in one part of your life may lead to even greater changes somewhere else. This is why I try to work systemically as much as possible. Involving a friend or loved on in session could help reduce barriers to change, and help solidify and maintain change once therapy is over. This is particularly true when working with kids.

My Background

I received a bachelor's degree in psychology from St. Olaf College in Minnesota, and a master's degree in social work from the University of Denver. I received specialized training in couples and family therapy from the Denver Family Institute, one of the premier family therapy training institutes in the west. I am trained in various models of strategic, solution focused, and behavioral therapy. I have completed the Tier II Collaborative Problem Solving training through OHSU, and have completed a post-graduate certificate in foster and adoptive therapy through PSU. As as licensed clinical social worker I am required to participate in continuing education, so I am constantly looking for ways to improve my practice through additional training.
