Danette A Buchanan, MS, LPC, Pastoral Counselor in Beaverton
As a pastoral counselor, I anticipate every client session as an opportunity to be a caring, healing presence for each person who has the courage to call. You will feel valued and respected in my office. Together we will explore the stresses in your life and seek solutions, coping strategies, and most importantly, ways to reduce your anxiety and "stuckness". You will learn to take your power back and not let life's difficulties keep you down! I have experience working with chronic mental illness, children and adolescents, couples counseling, family counseling, addictions and people with anxiety and depressive disorders.
I believe that people long for deep meaning in their lives... that 'something' that they find beyond themselves. Power for living is both driven by internal strength and external resources. Many people believe in a higher power that guides their lives and is interwoven with who they are. I specialize in this kind of client.
I am a Facilitator for Couples Therapy through the program, "Prepare Enrich". You can learn more about the method here: https://www.prepare-enrich.com
