Sharon Sielschott, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Sharon Sielschott is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Oregon who has 6 years experience partnering with adults seeking help with trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, life transitions, and women’s issues. She completed her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Western Oregon University and received her Master of Science in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling from Western Oregon University.

Sharon believes that everyone can benefit from exploring choices to choose a hopeful path forward. Sharon practices from an existential philosophy which involves exploring what provides meaning to one’s choices in order to develop a healthy sense of well-being. Sharon’s approach to counseling is from a Positive Psychology approach with an emphasis on self compassion, values and strengths, and a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approach, which focuses on the thought processes and beliefs about what one may want to adjust in their life. 

Sharon seeks to establish a genuine, fun and caring relationship with you in order to collaborate with you towards meeting your goals. Sharon relies heavily on a collaborative, non-judgmental approach to develop rapport and believes open communication is essential for the counseling relationship.

Alexa Fouche, LMFT

Philosophy of Care

I’m happy to be part of the team at Thriveworks. I bring to the practice many years of assisting clients in reaching their respective goals. I utilize Cognitive Therapies and have a well developed view about how individuals come to realize their full potential. I believe the therapeutic relationship is most effective when individuals feel heard and are valued.

I work with individuals, families and couples on: Increasing insight, developing a sense of belongingness, having greater fulfillment and  building confidence around lifestyle choices.

I have great compassion for those searching for meaning in their lives and for the accompanying journey required for self actualization.

I'm a burn survivor that was able to achieve goals in spite of the challenges presented and know how hard it is to not let a disability, negative beliefs, self doubt and shame define us.

I work with clients to build on their strengths, overcome barriers to having a meaningful life and developing coping skills to meet life’s challenges.

I have licenses to practice therapy in both Oregon and California and have over 30 years experience in working with individuals.

I look forward to working with you and want to acknowledge the trust and the courage it takes to engage in therapy.
