Patrick D Harvey

Licensed Professional Counselor

My goal and passion is helping people gain insight into the choices they make so they can decide if there are different and more functional choices to be made in the present. I find that people benefit significantly from the counseling process and making more conscious choices in their lives.

My Approach

I utilize the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, more specifically the ACT Model, in most cases. Additionally I provide information about how the brain works in our decision making and/or actions so people can understand why they are making some of the choices they've been making. I help people recognize what has meaning for them in their lives, what doesn't have meaning, and help them steer their thoughts and actions towards what matters to them. I believe in each person's ability to decide what they need and want in their life and how they can work towards achieving it. Self/cash/card payment welcome if not using insurance.

My Background

I earned my Masters Degree in 1996 and have been working in the field of counseling ever since. I earned my licensure (Licensed Professional Counselor) in 2015 and have been working in private practice since then. Additionally, I have a certification as an Alcohol and Drug Counselor-Level II (CADCII) from the state of Oregon. Much of my experience has been helping people address substance use/abuse issues though most often times substance use is connected with other challenges that need be addressed as well. Helping people make positive changes in their lives is my passion, and I recognize that progress is a process, not a linear path towards perfection. My goal is to help people change as they see fit, and help them determine how they can be successful in doing so. Challenges with motivation, mood disorders, anxiety, substance use, relationship issues, feeling stuck in life, etc... are all things that people face and benefit from having support in the process of improving.
