Counseling Practice of Anne Allanketner LPC
respect compassion insight creativity

I have been in full time practice since 1981. I am licensed as an LPC in Oregon and an MFT in California. My areas of specialization are listed below.

I welcome new clients and I am grateful for a wide diversity of cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations, philosophical outlooks, ages and life challenges in my private practice.

I view my counseling work as an opportunity to learn from and with my clients, as well as to counsel and teach.
