Jacob Curtis CADCI NCC LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor
Each person seeking counseling deserves to be seen and respected as an individual, and the counseling process must reflect this individuality. It is my job as a counselor to help my clients plan and use their personal strengths, resources, and supports to find new ways to live.

I am now offering teletherapy. Every person comes to counseling with a unique background and need. In some situations ways of dealing with things that were effective in the past may no longer work. Others may be seeking enhanced wellness or balance in their lives. Counseling begins with a safe and supportive relationship. Often the counseling process involves identifying one’s values, as well as one’s beliefs about oneself and the world. I use research-informed approaches to help my clients identify problem areas, create goals, and try new ways of doing things that work for them in their unique situation. My theoretical approach to counseling is integrative, but draws from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (a type of CBT), and Existential Theory.
I hold a Master’s Degree (MA) in Counseling Psychology from Lewis & Clark College, Graduate School of Education and Counseling and hold professional membership in the American Counseling Association. I am also a Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor I (CADC I), a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC), and a Professional Counselor (LPC) licensed by the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists. My training includes: working with individuals and families; lifespan development; treating people experiencing anxiety and depression; cultural diversity; treating people who have experienced trauma and abuse; treating individuals with personality disorders; interpersonal effectiveness and communication strategies; diagnosis and assessment; Cognitive Processing Therapy for trauma; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; Dialectical Behavior Therapy; Motivational Interviewing; treating people with addictions; and other treatments, modalities and interventions.
