24/7 Crisis Line: 503.988.4888

Young people

We offer therapy to children, teens and young adults aged 10-18, providing support in the midst of intense change. We work with youth who: have experienced trauma, are queer or trans-questioning, or who just need support. We also offer family counseling, sibling therapy and child-parent therapy.


We ourselves are queer therapists, so please feel at home! We provide individual and couples’ therapy to lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, nonbinary, queer, questioning, intersex, allies, asexual and pansexual persons of all ages. We provide excellent resources for gender transitioning.


Do you have caregiver burnout? We work with many social workers, housing activists, nurses, teachers, foster and adoptive parents, and people caring for loved ones with disabilities. We can help give you the tools and support you need to manage stress and feel heard and supported in your life.

About Pulse Wellness

We have seen first-hand that oppressive systems cause great harm and we believe in the reparative need for both social justice and personal healing. We also believe that some of this repair from trauma begins at home, and that caregivers need extra support to do this important work. Our work is in helping our clients not only to survive, but to thrive.

Rosanne Marmor, MSW, LCSW

I teach in the School of Social Work at PSU and work with individuals, couples and organizations. I’m what’s called “client-centered” in my approach. Your story, culture and values are at the heart of the time we spend together.

Together, we can map a way forward. You deserve to feel joy. You deserve a balanced life.

Matthew Lucas, MSW, CSWA

As a Black, gay clinician with intersectional identities, I have firsthand knowledge of the roles race, culture and gender play in who has access to therapy and how it’s provided. My commitment is to create a safe space and normalize therapy for everyone who has encountered marginalization.

Erin Mahone, MS, CTP, LPC

I work with both teens (and their parents!) and adults, from ages 13 to 65+. 

I can help you challenge those internalized narratives of shame, despair, co-dependency, and people-pleasing that leave you stuck, exhausted, and feeling alone.

Are you a chronic fast-goer, over-doer, over-thinker? I’ve spent my career in fast-going jobs and had to learn to slow down so I could have the family, friendships, dog, and hobbies I wanted. I want to help you do the same (though the dog part is optional).

Krista Ryan, MA, QMHP-R

I primarily work with youth—children (ages 8+), preteens, teens and young adults—who are LGBTQ-questioning and straight alike, struggling with life’s challenges and willing and ready for change.

I work with LGBTQ+ adults and allies, too!

Brooke White, LCSW

There comes a time when the tools and skills we once relied on to keep us safe no longer work for us. We need to find new ways to move through the world as we build the life we want to live. I am excited to co-create a trusting space with you so that we may do this work at your pace, with your needs in mind.

Growing up in a conservative, South Asian culture, I understand the heavy stigmatization of seeking therapy and mental health services and feeling overwhelmed with conflicting cultural expectations. I am bilingual and can provide therapy in Bengali and English.

I hold space for and create radical healing for queer folx as they strive to find their most authentic self. I am also interested in working with people who want support with Health at Every Size (HAES), autoimmune conditions and ADHD. People are not their conditions or diagnoses.

Latest Thoughts



Individually, it can feel insignificant; but when each of us stands-up, joins hands, and contributes what we are able (no matter the amount), we are admitting that we still feel hopeful, and hope is the most valuable human resource.
