We help individuals overcome depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, negative self-image, OCD, addiction, identity issues, trauma, grief, fear, PTSD, and more.

We specialize in Marriage and Couples counseling and want to help you have the relationship you’ve longed for, but only dream about. We are optimistic that you can see your goals become reality. We have seen it happen for others and know it can happen for you too! Let us show you how.

We also offer individual therapy for adults and children. We utilize a warm, friendly, and encouraging approach to therapy and have successfully supported hundreds of people with a wide variety of backgrounds and issues overcome their struggles and become happier and healthier.

Did you know that in Oregon anyone with a Masters Degree in Counseling and a license can offer marriage counseling services even if they have never had training or taken a class in Marriage Therapy? At Forte Counseling Group all of our therapists have advanced training and areas of specialization. For example, Dave Lowe has advanced training in the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy and will soon be one of only a few therapist certified in the Portland Metro area.  Katelan Hostetler has a high level of experience, training, and certification in counseling children utilizing play therapy, sand tray therapy, and art therapy techniques. Roxie Sprick has training in Emotionally Focused Therapy and in EMDR, which has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma.
