name is Johnnie Burt, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with the state
of Oregon. I am a Christian with a private counseling practice in
Woodburn, Oregon, conveniently located midway between Portland and
Salem along the I-5 corridor. I work with individuals from all faiths and with those who
have no specific faith background at all. I see people as having
intrinsic value because we are created in God's image. Yet, many of us
our way through the pain and challenges of life and need help in
getting back on track.
Everyone struggles with life at one time
or another, and I am no different. I want to be my best self but fail at
times. I care about other people and am very focused on relationships
and how I can successfully interact with those whom I encounter.
are the cornerstone of our humanity. Broken relationships can cause
isolation and pain for the individuals involved. Healthy relationships
can be extremely challenging to sustain. Many times, experiences from
one's past negatively influence the building or maintaining of important
relationships. Previous trauma, abuse, abandonment or never being loved
are just a few examples of issues that can disrupt one's path to a
I have struggled with some of these issues from my past and continue
to work through them. Through my experiences, I have developed into a
caring person who has great empathy and a sensitive heart. I possess a
keen sense of listening that allows clients to be heard. My goal is to
help people address their personal and relationship issues so they can
look beyond what is to what could be. That means at times I will ask the
tough questions to help people dig deeper to achieve a greater degree
of freedom in their lives.
We are not immune to the negative
influences of the world. Many times, people do not have a safe outlet
to discuss the hard issues in their lives. The church often reinforces
the misconception that, "If you are a Christian, then you should not be
experiencing that particular problem or struggling to overcome that
particular behavior." As humans, however, Christians can find themselves
in painful situations with no one and nowhere to turn. It can be
confusing and frustrating to grapple with a destructive pattern that you
have submitted to Jesus for healing or deliverance, only to fail and
give in to it once again.
It is my desire to help individuals who
are unable to overcome unhealthy or outright harmful practices. For
example, domestic violence and pornography plague society at large and
every church community, yet few church leaders are willing to openly
address these hot-button issues. My goal is to enable hurting
individuals to successfully resolve their past and present personal and
family conflicts by providing a comfortable, supportive environment
conducive to frankness and transparency. My role as a counselor is not
to impose cookie-cutter solutions on clients but to facilitate changes
that can produce the healing and growth that clients seek.
counseling services are $150 per 45 minute session. I am an in-network
provider with MODA, Providence, CIGNA, Pacific Source, OPTUM, and OHP

out-of-network insurances to mail in for reimbursement.
