Susan Jepson, LCSW - Mindful Practice Counseling and Consulting
25 years of diverse experience enables me to provide effective, empathic, evidence-based therapy. I offer therapy and consultation for many issues and challenges including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, life transitions, trauma, abuse, and adoption to name a few. I provide a nurturing, supportive environment for adults, teens, children and families to explore growth and healing. 

My focus is to help individuals and families realize their potential, heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths, bringing more joy, connection and peace. I use a variety of evidenced-based modalities and practices in my work including:

  • Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Collaborative Problem Solving (Tier II Certified)
  • Neuro-Sequential Model of Therapeutics
  • Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
  • Self Psychology
  • Sand Tray Therapy
  • Gestalt Therapy

I graduated with a Master's degree in Clinical Social Work from Wilfred Laurier University (Canada) in 1995 and have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Oregon since 1998. I complete a minimum of 40 hours of continuing education bi-annually and have participated in numerous trainings with Dr. Bruce Perry M.D. (Child Trauma Academy) and Dr. Stuart Ablon Ph.D (Think:Kids/Collaborative Problem Solving). I have extensive experience teaching Mindfulness-Based Stress and Symptom Reduction. In addition, I am a certified YogaCalm instructor. If you feel I would be a good fit for you, I offer a free 30 minute consultation to help you decide if we would work well together. I look forward to hearing from you. I do not accept insurance, but will provide you with the necessary Superbill to submit to your insurance for reimbursement.
