Keith Swanson, Psy.D. PC ~ Download Forms
I have been in practice since 1994. Populations primarily served in my practice are children ages 4-12, adult individual psychotherapy and marital issues. Areas of specialization include children’s disorders, panic disorder and addressing psychological issues based upon a Christian world view. It is my commitment to conduct my relationship with the client according to the highest ethical and professional guidelines. I see myself as a provider of services that you are acquiring. My objective is to see the goals which brought you to counseling significantly improved, if not resolved. While these results cannot be guaranteed, it is anticipated that our working together as a team will result in such an end. Above all, I care about my clients as people. I pray for my clients every day and am personally concerned with their success and well being.

My approach to therapy is collaborative and direct. When it is appropriate and relevant, I seek to integrate the religious and spiritual beliefs of the individual into therapy.

My goal is to help you create a whole, healthy, meaningful life in a nonjudgmental, safe atmosphere of respect and discovery.

I work with children, youth and families in a private group practice and I also teach at George Fox University. I have experience working in hospitals and other residential facilities. I have been licensed in the State of Oregon since 1996.

The intent is to facilitate healing and health by utilizing a full range of psychotherapeutic and medical interventions.
Therapy is collaborative, direct, and tends to be short-term. Interventions include developmental, cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, and existential.

Susan Hall, Psy.D. ~ Download Forms
I earned my doctorate degree at George Fox University and worked in a variety of settings before beginning private practice in 2008. I currently see adolescents (ages 14 up) and adults. I work to help my client's face issues including depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, family of origin issues, trauma and surviving past abuse. Additionally, I work with people who have difficulty forming safe and healthy relationships due to unresolved hurt and trauma from the past. I also have specialized training in treating people struggling with substance abuse/dependency, or those affected by someone with these struggles. I see a variety of therapy techniques that best fit each client's individual needs and their desired treatment outcomes. I respect and value my clients' views of their needs, and work collaboratively with them to form treatment goals. I focus on developing a therapeutic relationship with my clients that fosters a safe, nurturing environment allowing each person to heal and reach desired treatment outcomes. Therapy can be short-term, but is often long-term depending upon the needs of the each client.

Adam Fenske, Psy.D. ~ Download Forms
I earned my doctorate at George Fox University and am a Licensed Psychologist in the State of Oregon. Seeking therapy is an incredibly important and courageous decision. Therefore, I strive to provide a confidential and supportive environment where my clients have a sense of safety to express their thoughts and feelings. Each treatment plan is tailored toward the needs of the client in regard to their life circumstances. I have found both short term and longer term therapy to be beneficial. I work with adults, couples and adolescents with concerns related to addiction, relational discord, trauma and men’s issues. I am married and have two children.
Carlos Taloyo, PhD. ~ Download Forms
I completed my training at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, CA with a PhD in Clinical Psychology and an MA in Theology. I enjoy working with adolescents, adults, couples, and groups. I am adjunct faculty at George Fox University's Graduate Program in Clinical Psychology where I provide supplemental supervision of students pursuing careers as psychologists. I also teach group psychotherapy. More information about me is available at my website: drtaloyo.com.
The relationship between the therapist and client is key to satisfying outcomes in therapy, so I work at making sure the relationship is secure and stable. In the context of a good working relationship, I use strategies that can help you make changes in your life. We will examine how your thoughts impact feelings and behaviors, understand your childhood history and how it impacts your current life, apply spiritual/faith-oriented strategies for managing life's challenges, or examine your relational style so they can be more satisfying. We may need to see each other only once or twice, but sometimes get the best results by meeting more often. Regardless, the relationship is collaborative and you will be involved in the decisions concerning therapy.
