Healing in the heart of Hillsboro

Person-centered counseling and therapy services
in western Washington County, Oregon

Depression is a dark, lonely place. Counseling and support is here for you, for whatever recovery looks like in your life. We at Ancora wish you well in the fullest sense of the word.  

Anxiety, if left unchecked, can influence our world with constant worry and uncertainty. It doesn’t have to be that way. Learn to manage anxious thoughts and feelings with us.

Bad things happen in life that leave us in a state of horror and helplessness. Work with Ancora Therapy and Counseling to regain your strength and your power. Contact us today.

Addiction can hijack the brain and alter our perceptions, life priorities, and ability to invest in life. Cutting back or quitting can be possible. Our team can help you regain your freedom.

Grief, loss, or sudden changes in life can alter what we understand to be good and true. Our therapists can help you navigate back to the life you trust and understand.

Ancora Therapy and Counseling understands the challenges of dealing with gender identity. We offer assessments and support for gender-affirming medical procedures.

It is only by grounding our awareness in the living sensation of our bodies that the 'I Am,' our real presence, can awaken.

JoAnn Dohn, MSW, CSWA
Billy is a great therapist and I truly appreciate the level of care and empathy he provides throughout our sessions and beyond.
Name Withheld for Confidentiality
I have been supervised by Lydia towards LPC licensure for almost two years. She has a wealth of knowledge both of county services and community mental health, and helps me navigate these systems effectively, ethically, and in a healthy way. I cannot recommend Lydia highly enough, I am a far better counselor having worked with her!

Building on your strengths towards lasting wellness.
