Suzanne Dilitto
MA, Licensed Marriage and
Family Therapist | OR, WA

Hi there, welcome! I’m Suzanne (they/them). I’m a LMFT (Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist) who serves Oregon and Washington clients. I earned my Master’s degree from Lewis & Clark College Graduate School with a specialization in sex therapy.

I primarily serve couples and different relationship structures. I’m passionate about exploring and strengthening romantic/sexual relationships. Typical topics that I work with in couples therapy include communication issues, escalated/unresolved conflict, sex & intimacy, navigating different neurotypes, infidelity, and differing values/cultures.

What you can expect from working with me for couples therapy: I am an emotion-and-process-focused attachment therapist, which means that cultivating awareness around your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors in relation to one another. Throughout sessions, you may notice moments in which I will gently interrupt - this is to gain a deeper understanding of your emotional experience and to dive deeper into the interaction within the relationship. While it might feel jarring, these interruptions are intentional to highlight experiential experiences within the here-and-now moment. You might also notice moments of silence - this is also intentional for two reasons: the first being as an ADHD clinician, it helps me organize my thoughts and nervous system response to the experience at hand, and the second being that silence can deepen the emotions felt within that given moment. As a couples therapist, I utilize Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT) and the Gottman Method, which I am Level 1 & 2 trained.

Aside from my role as a therapist, I share a life with my three cats (Miss Kitty, Scorpia, and Stardust - two of whom you’ll most likely see in sessions) and my two long-term partners. On a typical day off, you’ll find me either reading or playing board games or getting out in nature with my closest people.

Affirming and authentic relationships are crucial to survival and wholeness; I’m passionate about supporting parents who struggle with anxiety or frustration in their role, and I work with couples who are seeking deeper connection and restoration.

My approach is based on experience & training in the following: Attachment Theory, Systems Theory, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Expressive Arts Therapy, Existential Therapy, Intuitive Eating, Incredible Years Parent Program, and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy. 


I address the following concerns in my work with individuals, couples, and families: body-image & identity, burnout, spiritual & religious trauma or questioning, relational and communication difficulties, parenting, life transitions & grief, childhood emotional neglect, perfectionism, anxiety & existential questions. With curiosity and compassion, we’ll examine patterns that hinder self-acceptance, nourishing relationships, and whole-body living. We’ll uncover and hold some big questions to get to the heart of what kind of life is most meaningful to you.

Kelsey Carrier
MA, Marriage and Family Therapist
Associate | OR, WA

Hey! I’m Kelsey. I’m an MFTA (Marriage and Family Therapy Associate) but my clinical focus has evolved to primarily serve individuals. I embrace a fully integrative and holistic approach to therapy with EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) being the cornerstone of my work and continuing education.

My personal journey has been shaped by incredible challenges, including an ongoing battle with chronic illness that led me to losing my colon. Through my own experiences, and being neurodivergent, I’ve found my purpose as a therapist who hopes to understand the complex intersections of physical and mental health. Other areas of my practice include: cannabis use and education, female reproductive and physical health, and child-free living.

In my practice, we utilize a wide variety of therapeutic techniques to support your goals, including but not limited to: somatic, interpersonal, trauma-informed, and attachment and narrative-based. I believe in empowering my clients through psychoeducation, current and ongoing research, and science-based information. Humor and neuro-affirmative practices play a vital role in co-creating a safe and supportive space with my clients as well.

Outside of my professional role as a therapist, I share my life with my three incredible dogs (Scout, Chili, and Penny) and my long-term partner. We enjoy hiking, camping, and backpacking as not only fun and exciting but also as an integral part of self-care and overall well-being. Currently, we are camp-hosting in Eastern Washington for the summer!

Anthony LiGregni
MA, Clinical Social Worker
Associate | WA

Hey there! My name is Anthony LiGregni (he/him), and I am thrilled to be a new member of the Vancouver Counseling Solutions team! I received my Master’s degree in Social Work (MSW) from Louisiana State University and have had the pleasure of working with people from all different backgrounds and stories.


I have experience working with families, adolescents, individuals with substance use disorders, co-occurring diagnoses, domestic violence victims, etc. Working hands-on with clients throughout my studies and professional experiences has been extremely valuable and enjoyable. 


I am passionate about helping clients overcome the struggles associated with anxiety and OCD, and advocate for the use of exposure therapies in my practices whenever possible.


Counseling should be a journey, and I will always work to best guide my clients— however, it is them that will be doing the heavy (and most beneficial) lifting. I believe that everyone deserves to understand what they are going through, and that everyone has the ability to feel better. I look forward to being a part of your journey!

Brianna Hughes
MA, Licensed Professional Counselor | OR

Hello, my name is Brianna Hughes (she/her). I am a Professional Counselor Associate in Oregon. My passion for working with clients is based on the foundation that everyone deserves to live well. My therapeutic approach is multicultural, trauma-informed and feminist, while incorporating cognitive-behavioral and narrative therapy. While using narrative therapy, my practice recognizes the traumatic impact of systems of oppression and how this affects the wellbeing of individuals, families and marginalized communities.


I earned a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from George Fox University and a Bachelor's degree in Psychological Sciences from Northern Arizona University. In my graduate work, I also became certified in Trauma Response Services from the Trauma Response Institute. This specialized training allows me to offer focused services to help with post-traumatic stress prevention, body mindfulness and intervention.


The client populations I enjoy focusing on experience anxiety, depression, disordered eating, post-traumatic stress disorder from systems of oppression (racism, sexism, transphobia, homophobia, capitalism, fatphobia, etc), grief, abusive family/romantic relationships, suicidal ideation and self-harm. By using narrative therapy, I encourage my clients to empower themselves and amplify their voice for all concerns regarding their health and identity.

Gita Sterling
MA, Marriage and Family Therapist
Associate | OR, WA

Hello! My name is Gita (they/she). I'm a Marriage and Family Therapist Associate. I received my Masters of Arts in Marriage, Couples, and Family Therapy from Lewis & Clark College and a Bachelors of Arts in Sociology and Psychology from Portland State University. My previous work experience has been in public health education and advocacy with a focus on sexual and reproductive health.

My clients are typically couples/partnerships, individuals ages 15+, and families who come from a range of backgrounds and experiences. My work often focuses on exploring LGBTQ+ identity with a focus on transgender and gender noncomforming clients, anxiety, depression, relational conflict and communication, and sexual issues. I use a variety of therapeutic modalities rooted in Systems Theory and Intersectional/Feminist perspectives, such as Emotion Focused Therapy and Satir Experiential, as well as Narrative and Collaborative theories.


I am queer, South Asian, and white and grew up in rural Alaska. These identities only begin to touch on who I am. As a person with many intersecting identities and complexities, some that are valued more than others, I know what it is like to feel like I have to hide my whole self. I also know how good it can feel to have a space to exist with contentment and authenticity. Because of that, my goal is to help you find the value in existing as your whole self and provide a place where you can begin to explore who you truly are. While my work is with individuals, couples/partnerships, and families, I have a special love of working with couples/partnerships who are taking the first steps to reconnect, grow, and exist authentically in their relationship(s).

MA, Licensed Professional Counselor | WA
Professional Counselor Associate | OR

Hello! My name is Katheryne Lewis (she/her). I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Washington and a Professional Counselor Associate in Washington and Oregon. I earned my Masters degree in Professional Mental Health Counseling as well as a certificate in Ecopsychology from Lewis and Clark College. 


My practice is oriented to Narrative Theory and Ecopsychology. Celebrating each individual’s uniqueness, I aim to help clients understand their stories within a larger sociocultural context while encouraging them to make room for meaningful narratives. Narrative theory emphasizes that our stories are not only our own, but are comprised of the narratives that society may have of us. It is important to embolden the voice of the client as they work to rewrite the storylines of their identity. I work to help clients create meaning while also acknowledging and holding the larger systems of oppression accountable for the barriers they continuously uphold.

I hold true that in order for our ecosystems to thrive, it embraces all that is queer, diverse, strange, unique, beautiful, and mystifying. The fact is, there is nothing queerer than nature. Imagine the thriving community we could cultivate if we choose to use nature as a mirror and model for success. As a queer Black woman and a clinician, my goal is to help my clients understand their unique existence in this greater ecosystem, ready to be embraced for all that they are. 

Honoring my role as an advocate for youth, I hope to normalize the presence of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors as key components to create a meaningful and successful life. However, no matter how old you are, I hope to empower you in deepening your awareness of self and safely hold space for you to explore the unknown. I offer you compassionate validation, guidance, curiosity and challenge. While this process won’t be easy, I hope you will allow me to sing praises of your unique story until your voice finds the strength to do the same.

Kaylee Torres
MA, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist | WA, HI | Associate in OR

Hi! My name is Kaylee (she/they) and I’m a Marriage and Family Therapy Associate in Oregon (R7048) and Washington (MG61202357). I received my Master’s in Marriage, Couple, and Family Therapy at Lewis and Clark College in 2021. I completed training in EMDR therapy in 2022 and am in the process of becoming trained in the Gottman Method. I am a queer, monogamish, Asian and Pacific Islander, neurodiverse, femme person who is temporarily able-bodied and currently exists in a mid-size body. I name these aspects of my identity because my lived experience influences who I am as a therapist and I also know how important it can be as someone with marginalized identities to find a provider who is part of your community.

I provide individual, family, and relational therapy to teens and adults who identify as LGBTQIA+, Gender Diverse, all ethnicities, all body sizes, types and abilities. I work with all relationship styles, including monogamy, non-monogamy, polyamory, and relationship anarchy. I am sex-positive, BDSM/kink-aware, and trauma-informed. I draw from Systems Theory, Intersectional and Feminist perspectives, Emotionally Focused Therapy and Attachment Theory, Internal Family Systems and an Intergenerational framework. I incorporate techniques from a range of modalities in order to provide you the best care possible.

I approach therapy from a relational and ecosystemic lens, meaning I acknowledge that we exist in relation to other people and beings, as well as the land we occupy, and our daily life is impacted by larger systems such as capitalism and white supremacy. Human beings are built for connection and that connection to others and to ourselves is often disrupted by systems of oppression. I work with clients to gain insight on their unique struggles and then make change based on their goals. Therapy can be uncomfortable and it can bring up a lot in us because it requires such vulnerability, but that is exactly where change happens.

Mariah Sullivan
MA, Professional Counselor
Associate | OR, WA

Hi there - I’m Mariah, I am a Professional Counselor Associate in the states of Oregon and Washington. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Western New England University and my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from American International College. I work with individuals 18+ and focuses of mine include eating disorders, boundary setting, struggles within career, issues in young adulthood, anxiety, trauma, interpersonal challenges in relationships, big life transitions and existential questions. 


I take a feminist approach to therapy and believe in the importance of looking at personal issues within a societal and cultural perspective. I believe in finding the balance between personal accountability and also acknowledging that there are external factors that have created barriers, shaped our world views and shaped beliefs about ourselves. 


I take an integrated approach to therapy, not relying on one theory or type of intervention, but frequently draw from Acceptance and Commitment therapy, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, and Mindfulness-based Cognitive therapy with an overall focus on building self-compassion, values-driven decision making, and challenging limiting beliefs. I have a background in fitness and nutrition and have received training in these areas. I enjoy being able to bring these into therapy when appropriate to create a more holistic approach to mental health.

Morgan Vann
MA, Clinical Social Worker
Associate | OR

Hi there! My name is Morgan Vann (they/she pronouns), and I identify as a queer, pansexual, white, neurodiverse woman. I received my Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from Portland State University, and my Bachelor’s degree in sociology with an emphasis in gender and sexuality from the University of Oregon. I am passionate about working with individuals age 15+ from all walks of life! I’m particularly interested in working with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, exploring gender and sexual identities, self-compassion, interpersonal and relationship conflicts, spiritual identity, substance use, personality disorders, sense of self, chronic illness, and trauma. 


My therapeutic approach always focuses on trauma informed care, and creating a safe space that feels centered around you and your goals. I use a variety of traditional modalities including Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Dialectical Behavioral therapy, Acceptance and Commitment therapy, Mindfulness, Narrative therapy, and more. I also enjoy incorporating more holistic approaches including ecotherapy, somatic methods, spiritual exploration, dream analysis, and other alternative practices. You’re wonderfully unique, and your therapeutic experience should be as well! Additionally, I come to this work from an intersectional feminist standpoint, and aim to carry awareness of how our well being is impacted by larger systems of power and oppression. I strive to address this through a therapy framework that is sex positive, gender affirming, anti-white supremacy, body-neutral, and oriented towards social justice.


As a counselor, it’s a gift to be able to hold space and honor folx throughout their mental health journey, and it’s my goal in our work together to provide a space that feels welcoming and embracing of your authentic self. My approach focuses on compassion, validation, and fostering self kindness through non-judgemental curiosity. I would be honored to be a part of your healing process, and look forward to knowing you! 

Tania S
Tania Santoso
MA, Mental Health Counselor Associate | WA

Hello, hello! I’m Tania Santoso (she/her) and I’m a Mental Health Counselor Associate in Washington. I received my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Oregon State University and my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Portland State University.

A big part of my identity is being Indonesian as I was born and raised there. My upbringing in Indonesia has deeply influenced my perspective on counseling, as a result, I bring a culturally sensitive approach to my practice, ensuring that every client receives personalized and effective support. Embracing the spectrum of human experience, I collaborate with individuals of diverse ages, including children, adolescents, young adults, adults, and the elderly. I bring a wealth of experience and a passion for facilitating growth and healing, in navigating anxiety, depression, generational trauma, interpersonal conflict, and the multifaceted journey of self-discovery which includes guiding individuals through life's transitions, whether they be in relationships, careers, or personal identity.

I draw from several therapeutic modalities, including Client-centered therapy, Narrative therapy, Art therapy, Cognitive-behavior therapy Mindfulness-based approaches, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and even Dungeon and Dragon’s therapy (fun fact: I’m a huge nerd!). As a counselor, I see our work as a collaboration between you, the client, and myself. Through a combination of these approaches, we will work together to help you grow and develop toward the best version of yourself (another fun fact: that definition can and will change over time, and that’s okay!).

Embarking on a journey of growth and change can be challenging but also one of the most fulfilling experiences. I firmly believe that having someone who believes in you can make a world of difference. That's why I am here to support you and help you realize your potential. As humans, we are made up of a multitude of facets that shape who we were, who we are, and who we aspire to become. I believe it's important to acknowledge and accept all aspects of ourselves. I'm committed to exploring with you what makes you unique, what you value, and what motivates you to achieve your goals. Together, we can discover the path toward a more fulfilling and authentic life.

Misti Patrella
Misti 61017_edited_edited.jpg

Hello, my name is Misti Patrella (she/her). I am a Clinical Mental Health Counseling Intern from Capella University. For the past ten years, I have worked as a certified life coach, supporting people in achieving their life and work goals, regardless of what they believe holds them back.


I believe that the life you desire wants you just as much. Whether you are struggling with losing your way (existential crisis), dealing with relationships issues, loss, other big life changes, or something that feels outside of your control, I can help. I particularly enjoy assisting individuals in managing their relationships with greater empowerment. Additionally, I can provide support in moving forward from divorce, overcoming people-pleasing habits, managing anxiety and stress, finding solutions to feeling stuck and overwhelmed, and navigating relationships with partners or family members who have mental health issues.


In my view, therapy begins with establishing a strong relationship between client and therapist. Trust, compassion, and empathy form the foundation upon which everything else is built. It is my role to create a safe environment for you to explore your thoughts and emotions. I strive to cultivate an atmosphere of non-judgment, allowing you to discover the answers that work best for you. I am here to support you in gaining a deep awareness, healing, and achieving the most positive outcomes for both you and your life.


Personally, I love being in my veggie garden, cooking, reading, and writing. I feel lucky that I live between the mountains and the beaches - the best of both worlds. My partner and I have 4 dogs and a whole gaggle of chickens.

Taylor Ramsey
MA, Mental Health Counselor Associate | WA

Hello! My name is Taylor. I am a Professional Counseling Associate registered in the state of Oregon. I hold a Master's degree from Pacific University in Applied Psychological Science. 


I have a background in outpatient pediatric occupational therapy where I enjoyed working to support children and families with sensory, motor, and cognitive challenges. I believe in supporting the family system and providing parents as well as children with tools to increase connection and well-being. My preferred populations to work with are neurodivergent individuals, and I have specific training with ADHD and autism. I do not believe in a one size fits all approach to therapy, and I value the client's perspective and collaboration when working towards goals. 


My therapeutic training includes: Parent coaching, support for feeding, sensory integration, play based therapy, and trauma informed cognitive behavioral therapy.

Audrey Olzak
Screen Shot 2023-05-09 at 4.01_edited.jpg

Hello! I’m Audrey Olzak (they/them), and I am a Marriage and Family Therapist Intern from Lewis and Clark College. I hold two bachelor’s degrees, one in Psychology and the other Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies from the University of California, Davis. My previous work has been in outreach to people affected by sexual assault, domestic violence, human trafficking, and homelessness. I identify as nonbinary, White, neurodivergent, and chronically ill.


I practice from a body-neutral, sex-positive, gender-affirming, trauma-informed, and anti-racist standpoint, because I believe each and every person is entitled to a good and meaningful life, free of subjugation. I enjoy working with the many different ways people show up in relationships, including polyamory, ethical non-monogamy, and monogamy; BDSM, kinky, and vanilla; LGBTQIA+ and straight; disabled, abled, you name it. I am especially passionate about the relationships people have to each other, but work with families, relationships, and individuals 16+ alike. I employ attachment-based and emotionally focused therapy, based in systems theory, interpersonal neurobiology, intersectionality, queer theory, and feminist theory. This means that I work with you in the context of your life, paying attention to how the systems you are embedded in (such as your body, your family, your community, your job, your identities) are affecting your mental well-being.

My therapeutic practice is rooted in compassion and empathy. In a world fractured by hardship and violent conflict, authenticity, kindness, and understanding are vital to maintaining connections to our friends, family, and loved ones. When suffering occurs in our lives, whether physical or mental, it is partially through these connections that we can heal. Suffering comes in many forms, and the emotions that accompany it can be taken as messages from our bodies and minds that can lead us to the source. What I aim to do in our time together, is work with you to identify and interpret those emotional messages, and then to follow you to the source of suffering and process what we find there. My role in our work together is like a tour guide – I have a general map of the human experience and know multiple different pathways that lead to these different places. But ultimately, I work with you to determine where to go and how to get there. What is the “terrain” like? What sort of obstacles might be encountered, and what do we do when we get there? I come in with this information, but you have the power to choose amongst all these options. I look forward to doing this work with you!

Collin Chute

In addition to relationships, I am passionate about helping individuals of all sexual orientations and identities embrace and celebrate their authentic selves. I understand the unique struggles that can arise when exploring one's sexuality, and I am committed to providing a space where you can openly discuss your desires, concerns, and questions. I also have a special interest in helping neurodiverse individuals navigate and understand their unique needs.

My therapeutic approach is compassionate, collaborative, and tailored to your specific needs. I draw from a variety of evidence-based modalities, including Collaborative and Satir. Together, we will work towards identifying your goals, developing coping strategies, and fostering healthier patterns of communication and intimacy.
