Pulse Wellness is a unique cooperative dedicated to radical well-being.
We are a highly compassionate, queer-informed therapy practice in Portland, Oregon. We’re also the only employee-owned mental health worker cooperative in the state, and one of the few in the country! We are dedicated to the radical well-being of practitioners and clients alike.
We provide trauma-informed therapy to both adults andyoung people (children and teens aged 10-18).
We also provide supervision and peer support to other therapists and social workers in our multiple communities.
Some of our other offerings include:
- caregiver and caretaker coaching
- family counseling
- supervision: both to CSWA’s and to partnering organizations
- radical wellness and self-discovery trainings
- trainings for groups and teams
We work with openness, honesty and compassion with all genders, identities, and ages to find a place of wholeness that everyone deserves. We are dedicated to constant learning in order to better serve our clients.
We strive to repair the world by healing our clients, families and communities. Also known as Tikkun Olam, this reparative work brings us balance and heals us in return.
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.
Simply put: our goal is to connect people to their core values, intuition and best selves. Getting there is usually a radical and transformative journey. We’re ready to be your compassionate and no-nonsense guides. This is our life’s work and also an ongoing learning process for us as practitioners!

Meet our team:
Rosanne Marmor, MSW, LCSW
I teach as Adjunct Faculty at 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.
Lola Ryan, MSW, LCSW
Therapy is a uniquely creative and collaborative process. You may feel stuck, but you’d be surprised at your inner resources. I’m here to help you find them!
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 due to identity. I offer an inclusive and affirming environment for change work.
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.
Rebekah Lubeck, MSW, LCSW
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!
Anika Amin, Intern
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.
Cari Strickland, Intern
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.
Are you ready to
take a transformative journey with us?
Virtual therapy throughout Oregon
We currently provide therapy by telehealth and phone appointments to all areas of Oregon. We look forward to providing in-person sessions in Portland once it is safe to open back up.
