Wise Counsel Comfort
In a caring, respectful atmosphere, I can help you to release distress safely. I use therapies that focus on physical sensations, because distressing emotions and memories are held in the body as well. I specialize in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).

Veterans and their families have sacrificed so much for our country, and I'm happy to be able to give back in this small way. The focus of my practice is trauma resolution. I also have a specialty in management of physical disability and pain. I've been an EMDR psychotherapist for over ten years. EMDR (Eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing) has been helping veterans and others for twenty years successfully deal with trauma and related issues. Feel free to give me a call with any initial questions.
Acupuncture at Riverside
I have a special free weekly clinic dedicated to the treatment of PTSD. The clinic is open to all veterans and their families. I use an ear acupuncture protocol developed specifically for trauma and used in clinics across the country for the after affects of trauma of all kinds. Patients are treated fully clothed while sitting. Acupuncturists without Borders has also sponsored clinics across the country specifically for returning vets with PTSD, and my clinic is one of those. It's a safe, comfortable environment dedicated to vets alone, and has been very successful in treating the anxiety, nightmares, and flashbacks many of them have been experiencing. I welcome and encourage vets to take advantage of this weekly service.
I am a U.S. Navy veteran (1966-1970) and in general provide treatment to those dealing with depression, PTSD and relationship issues.
Scott Bandoroff, Ph.D.
I have been working with couples and families in distress for nearly 25 years. Recently, I have felt a "calling" to work with veterans and their families to help them deal with the trauma of war. I believe we have a responsibility as a community to support our veterans and their families and am honored to be involved with the Returning Veterans Project.
I practice acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. The beauty of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is that it not only treats symptoms, it addresses the root causes and imbalances that are associated with your symptoms. Put another way, I treat individuals, not just their health issues. I am available on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. I look forward to being a partner with you in resolving any health issue on which you choose to focus.
I have extensive experience in working with veterans with anxiety, depression, PTSD, and stress-related disorders. I started an 8-week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Clinic in Bend 13 years ago and use mindfulness and meditation extensively in my work with clients. I also worked for the Navy on a Naval Air station in the capacity of a family services counselor, working extensively with active military as well as their dependents.

Acupuncture is a powerful modality that works to balance the body, calm the mind and bring the individual back to a place of original health. It is not known fully and precisely how it works, but many studies have shown, blood hormone balance, pain relief and relaxation after treatments. Acupuncture can be of benefit for musculoskeletal issues, endocrine and hormone imbalances, anxiety, PTSD, allergies and immune problems, headaches and many more issues. Treatments are private one hour sessions that will focus on whatever is requested.
I am excited to offer my services to the families of veterans. I look forward to working with veterans individually as well in the future, but I wish to have more training about working with veterans who have experienced combat. I have special training to work with children and families. I completed a 2 year training through the Harris Institute of Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health. I have completed the basic training for EMDR both levels ! and 2 and have received further training using EMDR with children. EMDR is a process that helps reprocess information that has been stored in a rigid manner during traumatic experiences. My website can inform you more about this process that can help digest traumatic material. I am a warm, compassionate, skilled therapist and look forward to working with you.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
I believe that counseling works best using a team approach between the counselor and client who has come to receive assistance in exploring and gaining understanding in areas of personal life. My goal is to help a client gain the confidence and skill to take responsibility for thoughts and behaviors, and to learn to make desired changes in life patterns. I have worked with couples planning marriage (about to be deployed or just returned) and those working on relational issues after marriage. I have facilitated domestic violence groups so I also have experience with this issue. I incorporate cognitive and behavioral therapy with a Rogerian emphasis on empathic listening. My values are part of me and will influence my therapy, but I believe that there are many paths and do not seek to have a client walk mine.
I've been a social worker since 1969 and an LCSW since 1980. I worked for the State of Oregon Services to Children and Families for 31 years, mainly as a supervisor of all the various programs. This work included court appearances, direct supervision of staff, direct work with clients, complaint resolution, personnel work, resource development and all the various aspects of social work in a public child welfare agency.
I've also had direct client contact and a part time private practice since retiring from SCF in 1998. My work focuses on mental health issues with adults largely and has included couples and families on occasion. I am currently adding EMDR training to my skill set and am using that to deal with the effects of trauma. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) has been proven as an effective treatement for PTSD.
I'm also the Emergency Management Volunteer Coordinator for the City of Gladstone, a Red Cross volunteer in mental health emergency response and a representative to the Clackamas County Organizations Assisitng in Disasters. In this work I've been involved in disaster response and preparation.
I'd be happy to answer any questions about my extensive experience and practice and look forward to continuing to help people deal with their issues. Working with the Returning Veterans Project is a great opportunity to do that.

Licensed Massage Therapist
Acupuncture is an amazing healing modality and I love to share the health benefits of the medicine with as many as possible.
I use Smart Brain Good Heart Tools to help get through trauma. They are simple somatic gestures and visualizations that help balance the brain and lessen the anxiety. I have been in private practice since 1980 and for most of that time I have had a focus on trauma recovery. The hour is typically an integration of talking, mindfulness, and Tools.
When you walk into my office I focus on your unique strengths and struggles. I work with stressful family and relationship dynamics,grief,loneliness and life transitions.I have specialized training in Addictions,Codependency and Love and Sex Addictions as well as LGBT issues. I am a trained EMDR therapist. Although we tend to prefer dealing with life's difficulties on our own it sometimes helps to work with a caring professional. I have 20 plus years experience and have worked with a variety of individuals in both rural and urban locations. I am especially interested in working with Gay and Lesbian military spouses.
Most people come to counseling with some sort of distress that they want to relieve as soon as possible. I use as many resources as possible to help my clients accomplish the changes they chose and relieve their distress. I try to build on each client's strengths and insights adding my skills, knowledge, professional training and any appropriate community health care, social and educational networks. Sometimes people will come to counseling for personal growth and exploration. In that situation the focus is more on active interaction with deeper parts of the client's personality than it is on reducing distress. I work with my clients to discern the exact nature of the problem or changes they want to make and create a plan with them for their counseling experience. I use various techniques depending on the client's level of development, learning style, presenting issue and belief system. It is important to me that we work as a team to achieve success in making the changes the client has chosen.
My available hours are from 9 am to 6 pm, and I am available on some Saturdays. I specialize in individual counseling for men and women as well as couples counseling. I am also and alcohol and drug counselor with over 20 years of experience. My counseling approaches include Solution Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, Guided Imagery, Hypnosis and Positive Psychology.
I understand that trauma effects each individual differently. I work with individuals and their families from that level. I provide a calm, safe, non-judgmental space where each person can work on what's pressing in the moment. I work from a solutions focused, mindfulness based model which, means that I am curious about what is actually working and how do we build on that; while also incorporating ways that individuals can learn coping strategies for some of the more complex issues that arise from being in and around combat situations.
