Chesley Strowd, MS, NCC, LPCi

Chesley holds a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health from OSU Cascades and is a National Certified Counselor working towards licensure. She is trained in the Systemic Family Intervention model and various other modalities. Chesley is often described as having a warm and compassionate nature with authentic curiosity that helps build the therapeutic relationship. She has a genuine desire to assist in clients’ empowerment.  Her approach to counseling is based on the belief that suffering is inevitable and manifests differently for everyone. She believes we are more than our thoughts, feelings and struggles, and that it is possible to make meaning of our lives in order to move forward and awaken to our full potential. Her mission is to collaborate with and assist clients in discovering their authentic self for a more fulfilled life through practical tools for building internal resources for resilience. She creates a safe space that honors clients’ free will to allow new discoveries to be made and new skills to be practiced so clients can function at their optimal state of well-being.

Her underlying approach is to help facilitate growth, awareness and meaning in clients’ lives through application of concepts derived from the field of Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) including mindfulness, biofeedback, trauma informed care and Mindful Self-Compassion skills development. She is undergoing training in HeartMath, Brainspotting and neurofeedback with plans to become trained in Clinical EFT (tapping).
