Respect and Care-Oriented Counseling and Couple Therapy
My name is Roy Huggins. I’m a professional counselor and couple therapist in Downtown Portland, OR.
I know that a safe and healing environment is one of the greatest places to be, and I love to provide that. Based on my academic knowledge, professional experience, and personal work in psychotherapy, sports, language learning and other realms, I’ve come to understand how confidence in your ability to grow is life-changing. With the right helper, we can do amazing things.
My first job in a psychotherapy session is to create that environment where you, or you and your partner, can do something that helps you grow. It isn’t always easy to be there. If you’re new to therapy, you might feel butterflies or be nervous that I’m going to tell you something is wrong. You might even feel like you haven’t had a lot of success with past attempts at change. That’s okay, it’s all part of the process. My job is to make it work for you.
My counseling sessions are tailored to each person’s needs and personality, and I’m always mindful towards discovering cultural and personal values. However our sessions go, they start with building a relationship. That way, we can do work that may otherwise be too difficult to approach. Both individuals and couples are often hurting when they come in. Being able to feel comfortable with me is key to working with that hurt. So I always am sure to respect people as they are, learn about their beliefs and values, and be attentive to their needs at the moment.
