This is the introductory paragraph I've had on my public materials almost since the beginning of my career in 1995:
"It is my privilege to work as a counselor and therapist, to be trusted with the most personal of your concerns as you explore and examine whatever it is that stands in the way of having the life you desire."
I've served more than a thousand clients and couples in my private practice, and it has been a great joy in my life. Sadly, because of a lawsuit and Board complaint (I allowed a warm friendship to develop with a client between 2009 and 2012), I am no longer permitted to provide services as a "Licensed Professional Counselor." This prevents me from diagnosing or treating any kind of mental health disorder. I remain hopeful that I will be able to return to my profession as an LPC, but that decision is in the hands of the Oregon Court of Appeals and the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors & Therapists.
  • If you would like further information about the allegations against me, feel completely free to be in touch. I made ethical errors, but none that I am at all ashamed of or embarrassed about.
Launching Wise Counsel & Comfort many years ago was the beginning of the fulfillment of a dream I'd had for many years -- to do something big to help the professional mental health community practice in a way that would offer more affordable services to low and middle-income uninsured clients.

From one counselor with three colleagues in 2000, we have grown to a thriving community of licensed professionals, (counselors, social workers, psychologists, etc.) as well as interns working under supervision toward their license. We have been able to support other wellness and alternative care practitioners who offer affordable services as well -- life coaches, hypnotherapists, nutrition counselors, etc.

We are all so grateful to have the privilege to serve our community and our professions in this way.

At this time, I am able to accept new counseling clients, but only those who are not in need of the services of a licensed clinician. If you'd like my help in making a decision about who might best meet your needs, please give me a call in Portland at 503-282-0182, or e-mail me at: lynnejoy@gmail.com. I'm glad to offer guidance at no cost.

All the best,

Lynne Joy
