Marsha Z. Kohen, LCSW

I believe personal challenges provide an opportunity for change and growth.  To enhance and support this process, I provide a warm, nonjudgmental, safe, direct and interactive therapy environment.  I use a combination of psychodynamic, developmental and family systems theory to empower clients, and help them become aware of options and facilitate growth.

I have a background in mental health and education.  I taught elementary school for several years, then earned a Masters in Social Work and combined these two fields to work as a school social worker.  In 1981, I opened my private practice, specializing in adolescents.  Since then, my areas of expertise have grown to include:  couples therapy, women's issues, parent coaching, relationship issues, life transitions, and mindfulness.  I work with couples and individuals of all ages.

Mark H. Kohen, PsyD

I am a Clinical Psychologist licensed to practice in Oregon. I have experience in both general medical and psychiatric hospital settings as well as out-patient mental health clinics.  I have been in full-time private practice since 1985.

Areas of expertise and interest include: depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, chronic pain, child behavior problems, adult ADHD, and issues related to aging. I have experience in designing, implementing and operating Employee Assistance Programs as well as consulting for businesses.

I work with people across the lifespan--from children to seniors.  I see individuals, couples and families. 

I have had training in psychodynamic, family systems, cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness and play therapies.  My approach is a blend of these tailored to meet the needs of the particular people with whom  I'm working.  My style is warm and gentle, but direct and active.  I often give homework and encourage people to pursue information or try new behaviors/approaches between sessions.
