Miranda Bayard-Clark, LPC
Making the decision to see a counselor can be an intimidating, and overwhelming process. I will work with you on a level that meets your needs and comforts. Finding the right therapist is 90% of it, so it is vital that you feel comfortable working with me, and I you, in order to get the full benefit of therapy. I will support you in finding balance in your life while helping you meet and get to know your authentic self.
During our first session, I will briefly talk with you about who I am as a therapist, some of my background and experience, and how I work with clients. Then, we will talk more about what brought you in, and what your hopes and expectations are during our time together. Finally, I will share with you some ideas of how we can work together to reach your goals.
I also see a number of individual clients who are working through life transitions, anxiety, relationship patterns and grief/loss. Many of them have come to work through a life event or just come to have a space to process. Clients have stated they enjoy my humorous yet direct approach.
Marriage Therapy & Couples Counseling
Often times, we find ourselves in the same argument over and over, which creates a pattern in our relationship that can be hard to break.
Whether you are starting a new relationship, or have been in one for years, there can be several challenges along the way. From everyday challenges of communication to life changes of adding a baby to the family, I have supported couples uncover emotions, learn tools to understand each other, better communicate, and create a more sustainable friendship and intimate relationship.
I received my Masters in Counseling Psychology from Lewis & Clark College. My focus in my studies was working with both Adults and Children, and also trained to work with Couples. I have completed Level 2 training in the Gottman Method couples therapy. I also incorporate and have training in Emotion-Focused Couples therapy techniques.
I currently hold a license through the state of Oregon: Licensed Professional Counselor: #C4122 and abide by its Code of Ethics. I am also a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC #292167). I am under the direct supervision of Karen Hixson, LPC.
I understand how social injustices affect each of us in a number of different ways.
