Welcome to The Hope Connection. Are you ready to become empowered and set a positive path toward growth and well-being? Our therapists provide confidential, professional and respectful services, each with a specialization to better meet your needs. Whether you are experiencing depression, anxiety, loss, relationship or family struggles, our group of qualified therapists will work with you on improving areas of your life that are not as satisfying as you would like. 

At The Hope Connection our goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying selected therapy approaches and techniques, we will take a look at long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. This journey of personal development and self worth will forever change the way you interact with your world.

In addition, as an approved internship site with CACREP accredited schools, our qualified graduate student interns are able to provide low fee services to those who need financial assistance and/or don't want to use insurance.

Who we are

The Hope Connection is a diverse group of therapists working with individuals, couples, families, children, and groups on creating stronger connections for a healthier well-being. Utilizing a number of therapeutic approaches such as CBT, Play Therapy, DBT, Emotion Focused Therapy, Sand Tray and more, we will collaboratively discover relational dynamics, behavioral patterns, or negative perceptions that may be holding clients back from experiencing a more meaningful life. Among our many goals is to reach out to the various communities and populations, including LGBTQ, in the Portland and Newberg areas and provide them with onsite educational and therapeutic services that are specific to their populations needs.

Our Mission

The Hope Connection encompasses evidence based treatment services in a compassionate setting where each person is treated with dignity and respect. We are dedicated to providing the community with the resources needed to make life long changes regarding their mental health care that results in a more joyful and purposeful life. 

Co-Founders & Managing Members

The Hope Connection's Portland location was established in 2013. In 2016 we expanded to Newberg.  The Hope Connection was created by passionate and experienced therapist's and wellness providers wanting to work as independent practitioners in a supportive group setting. We provide a collaborative space for like minded mental health professionals in private practice with the ability to offer services to diverse client populations in a cooperative environment.
