Professional statement

Jae Douglas is a social worker in Portland OR, where she works with adults of all ages. Dr. Douglas is particularly passionate about working with people experiencing or contemplating major life changes due to health, relationship or professional challenges. Many of her clients come to her feeling disoriented, overwhelmed by uncertainty, fear, and sorrow, and facing decisions in the context of the loss of the familiar. For people facing a life-threatening illness themselves or in a significant other, the focus will be on preparing for and navigating the process and meaning of death and dying. For all of her clients, her approach is to support personal agency regarding these changes and to identify, enhance and utilize their strengths as they plan and navigate change.

Dr. Douglas utilizes cognitive-behavioral and strengths-based therapies to explore the experience and meaning, as well as the challenges and opportunities, present in major the changes that they are experiencing. In session, Dr. Douglas focuses on grounding tools to develop and utilize strategies to calm and ground themselves in the present, and to imagine and realize a future when they will feel stable, healed and whole.

Her style is warm, thoughtful, active and engaging. She creates a welcoming and safe space for clients to explore their history and life story with openness and curiosity. She supports and guides her clients in exploring how their life experience, skills, strengths and insights can be brought to bear on their current situation so as to find and move authentically and positively forward.

She received both her M.S.W. and Ph.D. from Portland State University in Portland OR, where she has practiced for over 35 years. Both virtual and in-person appointments available; home visits available for clients who are unable to travel due to serious illness.

Message to clients

Finding your way through the most challenging times can be made easier with the help and support of a trusted other. You don't have to face these times alone. Your strengths are real but can sometimes be hard to recognize, or access.

My approach is to help you on your journey by learning what skills and strengths you already possess, and to support you in bringing them to bear on what you are facing now. I'll be there with you as you take each step, make each decision, and integrate each change along the way.

If you are in the process of coming to terms with a major change in your life, I am here to help you.
