Nice to meet you, I’m Kate.

I have earned two Masters degrees in the fields of counseling and psychology and am currently a registered Licensed Professional Counselor Associate (LPC-A) in the State of Oregon. I am also registered as a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC-R).


Since 2014, I have worked with clients of all ages, from grade school children to adults, and specialize in working with individuals with co-occurring disorders. I love being able to work with clients as they learn new skills to improve their lives. 


Watching clients shift from feeling disheartened to empowered when they realize that they have the ability to feel better and live the life they choose is an honor to observe; we often don’t realize that we have the power to change our thinking. My ideal client is anyone who comes to treatment with an open mind, along with a willingness and desire to learn and grow. 

Kate Cruzen (she/her), MA, MS, LPC Associate, CADC
