David Lechnyr, LCSW, ACSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Eugene
I specialize in providing therapy for depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and couples counseling. I enjoy helping people connect with what they have lost in both life and in themselves. I feel very strongly that we can let what happens in our lives make us angry, resentful and afraid, or we can embrace these events as a way to grow stronger, yet softer, and end up being more open to what scares us. I am always impressed by this process and the motivation of my patients towards change. I have appointment scheduling available online, available at www.lechnyr.com for convenience.
I feel that our problems can benefit from four important life concepts: Our thoughts and behaviors affect our emotions; How we respond to a situation dictates its outcome; Learning skills to regulate our emotions is crucial; How we talk with our partner is more important than what we talk about.
I am currently accepting new patients, ages 18-64, and can bill most insurance plans as well as affordable private-pay. My office is located at 1598 Pearl Street in Eugene. Online appointment scheduling is available at www.lechnyr.com as well.

David Lechnyr's Groups

Skills for Everyday Mindfulness

Many people practice mindfulness but still feel anxious. Mindfulness is a lot like walking across the room with the lights off. You end up bumping into the furniture and stubbing your toe if you walk too fast. Mindfulness is when you're able to walk through life with skill and grace. It is effective when you know how to use the skills during times of stress and unexpected life events.
