Professional statement

Vivian Rowe is licensed Marriage and Family Therapist offering holistic psychotherapy to adults of all ages with an accepting, calm, and compassionate approach to their unique challenges and life situation. Many of her clients are busy people with multifaceted lives struggling to navigate and cope with anxiety, trauma, life transitions, depression, grief and loss, and relationship concerns. Other clients reach out for support with work or career worries, creative blocks, spiritual matters, or for personal growth.

Therapy sessions with Vivian might include integrating talk therapy like cognitive behavioral and solution focused techniques with alternative healing methods such as mind-body skills (therapeutic breathing, meditation) energy psychology tools (tapping), brain science and spiritual /soul exploration (dream work, synchronicity). Using this whole-person approach, Vivian’s clients gain deeper insight into the root cause of their current challenge motivating them to use what they learn to transform their lives. Clients report relief from symptoms, sometimes after a few sessions.

Committed to empowering clients, Vivian encourages practicing tools and skills learned in session between appointments so clients feel ownership in their progress and healing. She helps clients identify and reinforce what is right about them to balance the judgmental thinking that can lead to discouragement. She strives to motivate her clients by reviewing their progress toward goals and keeping the broad perspective of their journey in view. Vivian’s clients describe their time in session with her as a safe space to explore, heal, process and grow.

Providing a caring, nonjudgmental experience is Vivian’s highest priority as she supports her clients in the hard work of becoming the best humans they can be. A seasoned telehealth provider licensed in Oregon and California, she offers remote sessions ensuring her clients have convenient, comfortable access to psychotherapy care.


Message to clients

Whatever struggle has brought you here, I welcome you with a calm presence, nonjudgmental listening and will extend a positive space for you to grow through your struggle. A caterpillar struggles through it’s chrysalis to become what nature intended, the flying, winged, next version of itself. By the same token, I invite you to follow the natural flow of your life, and sometimes that is pretty tough.

It’s courageous to reach out for help and can feel scary to be vulnerable. My goal is to help you feel at ease and comfortable with the process. I’ll use humor and analogy, and point out your humanness to counter the self judgment you might be experiencing. I’ll offer tools so you feel equipped to work through your struggle, and check in with you often to make sure our work is resonating with you. The therapist-client relationship is like no other in your life, because it is not reciprocal. So, you and I are both focused on caring for you, and supporting you to achieve your therapy goals.

Please reach out for an initial consultation to see if we’re a good fit to work together, I hope to hear from you soon!
