Individual Counseling

We offer safe and supportive counseling for individual clients geared toward your specific needs and goals. Individual counseling is an opportunity to dive deep into the aspects of your life or self that you would like to change or otherwise improve. Our sessions are tailored to your requests and needs. Treatment plans are made in collaboration and we are transparent about the treatment methods that we employ so that you can provide feedback along the way. 

Couples Counseling

Having a safe space is important when working through life challenges together. Shanako specializes in working with queer couples, poly relationships, and individuals with non-traditional partnerships. Couples counseling can be an effective way to explore relationship agreements, build trust and foster open communication, understanding and safety. 


Shanako is accepting new clients for supervisory needs. Shanako is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Oregon and offer supervision for Clinical Social Work Associates (CSWAs) and Certified Alcohol Drug Counselors (CADCs) seeking licensure/certification. "I honor both harm reduction and abstinence-based models. We will work together to develop your plan for supervision and identify your professional goals. I approach my supervision from a trauma-informed lens. I strive to create a safe place for supervises to grow and develop professionally."
