Patton Therapy, LLC
Anya Patton, LMHC
now at 104 5th St.

 Hood River, OR 97031


As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, my approach to therapy is grounded in mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy and person-centered therapy.

I provide individual, family and group counseling. I am dedicated to helping each client find solutions for his or her issues and concerns. I believe this can happen in a safe environment where self-awareness can be explored. My goal in therapy is to be empathic, honest and non-judgmental, providing clients with support and expertise to increase their quality of life and to walk confidently as a self-healer.

I have been a therapist for over a decade and have worked in community mental health agencies with all ages, including crisis assessment and safe school evaluations.

My office is located in Hood River with office hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I also spend Mondays and Wednesdays working on-site at the Hood River Valley High School. I am passionate about young people receiving the skills and tools needed to be successful and compassionate adults.

Hood River Counseling

Hood River, OR 97031

I am passionate about serving the community and working as a therapist. My years as an emergency room counselor have taught me how to address a variety of mental health and substance issues. I have experience working with some of the most difficult issues, which helps me to better understand and serve you. My ten years counseling a variety of people has helped me learn how to identify solutions from a systems approach, meaning that we work together during treatment on whole person healing.  I consider myself a solution-focused therapist, meaning that I help my clients find solutions that work for them, rather than vacillating on the problem.

 Hello! Please let me take a few minutes to introduce myself. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is a generalist practitioner with over 30 years of experience working with individuals, couples, families, and groups of all ages and life experiences. My work settings have varied to include inpatient psychiatric and medical facilities, outpatient mental health (both for profit and non-profit and governmental), as well as a college and juvenile justice. My broad experience has been intentional to allow me the flexibility to work with varied populations and issues. Anxiety and Neurobiology are of particular interest to me as a clinician. I take an educational approach to my work hoping to “work myself out of a job” by teaching my client new tools they can then use independently the rest of their lives to address the challenges they face ongoing. I have guided many other professionals toward their licensure and independent practice over the years as a clinical and administrative supervisor.

 Part time clinical practice with varied appointment times available. Please call prior, No walk-ins as there are no office staff available to greet you. I am actively working to re-engage with most Insurance company and Employee Assistance Program provider panels and will investigate/join panels to provide in network services when possible. Please feel free to contact me at the above contacts should you have any additional questions or require more specific information.

 Thank You! I look forward to meeting you!

Counseling and Therapy -
Serving the Gorge

Julie Mellow is a Licensed Professional Counselor (Clinical Mental Health Counselor) specializing in individual, couples and family therapy.

Karen Myers LCSW
704 Columbia, Hood River
Hours: Thursday evenings 4-7
Insurance Reimbursement

Therapy is a fluid, dynamic partnership between client and therapist. I believe in starting where the person is, and working towards the place that individual wants to be.

I prefer EMDR, a psychotherapy that can relieve the negative effects of intense life experiences. Seemingly mundane moments such as unexpected mishaps in sporting competitions, recreational injuries, as well as more intense experiences such as divorce, car accidents, sexual abuse, loss of a loved one or estranged family member or exposure to the unusual, often stressful experiences of first responders can become etched in our memory. This creates very uncomfortable symptoms which may distress other areas of our lives. Relationships, sports, work and school performance and mood can all be negatively impacted. EMDR may help remove the high emotional burden of these events allowing us to heal, naturally.

Ages: middle school to adult

Kay Endres, LCSW

I have a Masters in Clinical Social Work from the University of Illinois and 25 years of counseling experience with adults, teens, parents and supervising professionals. My counseling style and real-life experiences help people gain insights and skills that help them encourage forward movement in life. I have developed unique methods and use an approach that challenges thinking and behavioral patterns, which has a proven success rate with my clients.

In addition to helping others, I like to spend my time hiking, sailing and connecting with my family. With a strong passion for sailing, I have ventured across both oceans, sailed to Ireland and recently became a Coast Guard Captain.

I understand entering counseling is an important and personal decision. You may have an overall feeling that your life is not headed in the direction you want it to be. You may be experiencing depression, anxiety or stress. At times, you may feel a lack of direction in your life, job or relationships. Becoming aware and changing your thinking patterns can get you back on track and steer you in the desired direction. Getting help with an experienced counselor can help put your issues into perspective. You’ll feel less stressed, less anxious and happier.

Lucy Mason CPC COACH

 As a Whole Person Life Coach, Lucy works with clients who are in the midst of the uncertainty and ambiguity of a transition. They are trying to regain balance and sustained well-being. They come to explore their yearning to connect with their true meaning and purpose, bringing all of who they are into how they live their lives. Through coaching they cultivate the courage needed to untangle the knots of unhelpful behaviors, beliefs or expectations. They learn to honor the wisdom that comes from within by embracing their own truth; this leads to greater insight in navigating life’s challenges. We are all searching to see ourselves and to be seen in the world in all of our wholeness. Whole Person Life Coaching acknowledges and embraces the fullness of that experience and gently facilitates the journey to greater clarity and inner peace.

Lucy earned her BA at the Friends World Program of Long Island University, an international school dedicated to experiential learning and global citizenship.  She received her training and certification as a Whole Person Life Coach through Baraka Institute/Coach Training World.  She lives in Hood River, Oregon, with her husband and two children.

I am a clinical psychologist with 30 years experience working with most of the ongoing problems people encounter in life. I specialize in a newer form of cognitive-behavioral therapy called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), that research has shown to be effective in the treatment of many different problems, from chronic medical problems to anxiety, depression and many others. I consider the philosophy and theory behind ACT to represent not just a highly effective, cutting edge therapy, but also a way of life. Since I have incorporated this worldview into my professional and personal life, I have found greater meaning and reward in all areas of my life. I feel honored by my clients who allow me into their lives in such a deeply personal way, and I am greatly enriched by the experience.

Specialties (adults, adolescents, children, couples): Chronic Pain, Chronic Illness (diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Obesity, COPD, Asthma), Anxiety, Depression, Relationship Problems, Behavioral problems in children, ADHD

Scott Rower, PhD 
Licensed Psychologist 
Expert Help for Anxiety, Depression, Self-Esteem & Relationship Problems

I can probably help if you notice patterns of…
  • being often ‘on edge’, expecting the worst or worrying excessively
  • feeling a sense of helplessness, worthlessness or sadness that won’t go away
  • finding it hard to concentrate on work or follow through on everyday activities
  • things aren't getting better despite talking with family and friends
  • your life becoming small and narrow because your need to avoid things that stress you out 
I especially enjoy working with people that...
  • find it hard to truly trust other people
  • avoid conflict but then are resentful later
  • find emotions overwhelming & often stay in their head
  • have interest in mindfulness
Two Things to Expect
Caring Support.  I have a kind, easy and friendly way of being with people that helps to support feeling safe to open up.  It's very important to me that you feel understood and cared for.
Challenge to Grow.  A psychologist is not a “paid friend”. I'm highly trained in a modern type of cognitive behavioral therapy (called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy).  It is an active therapy that involves learning new skills.

My belief is our work together may help you navigate the process of change, gain new perspectives, experience emotional opening, and overall personal growth. I look forward to working with you and would be honored to hear your story.

I work with adults and adolescents on concerns of PTSD, anxiety/depression, relational intimacy, men’s issues, gender/sexual identity, and chronic illness/pain. Much of my experience has been dedicated to working with Native Americans as well as Pacific Rim and Latin American immigrants.

Above and beyond, our therapeutic relationship and personality fit are extremely important parts of your counseling experience. I am guided by the methods you find meaningful and helpful, believing you possess strengths, coping skills, and potential to be fulfilled in moving beyond your current concerns. I bring a flexible, strengths-based approach that honors the context of your life (Relational, Ecotherapy, and Multicultural approaches) as well as the richness of how you experience your world (Mindfulness-based, DBT, and Gestalt approaches). I also believe an integrative approach to mental health is essential in that my clients’ struggles often relate to underlying nutritional imbalances, untreated illness, or are expressed as body experiences. I have trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Level I, a body-based approach to treating trauma and PTSD that often can help when talking is not quite enough.

I hold a Master’s Degree in Community Counseling from Portland State University, maintain a National Certified Counselor credential (NCC), and am an Oregon Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).

I am originally from Austin, Texas and have lived in New York, San Francisco, and Kathmandu, Nepal. I have worked in wilderness education and believe strongly in the healing power of Nature. Lastly, having worked at Sesame Street in the 90’s, I had the privilege of once being on a first name basis with Elmo and Big Bird.
