Therapy Services in the Gorge

My name is August Jensen, and I draw upon the wisdom of Naropa University, the healing principles of Hakomi, and Stan Tatkin’s innovative Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy (PACT) to revolutionize the way you experience and nurture your relationships.

Specializing in Couple Therapy

I help partners navigate the complexities of their relationship dynamics and cultivate a secure and thriving bond. Through compassionate and interactive sessions, I help couples to explore their attachment styles, reactions, and communication patterns, empowering them to co-create a safe and attuned emotional environment.

Arousal Regulation: The Key to Lasting Connection

Ever wonder why communication can sometimes make things worse? As a species, we are uniquely designed for interactive regulation, which means we are much better at tracking each other than we are at tracking ourselves. But without training, we end up in a cycle of mutual dysregulation through perceived threat. I can help you learn to co-regulate each other and create a lasting sense of safety and security.

Attachment theory: a love that lasts

Attachment theory is not just about theory – it’s about practical application. I provide you with tools and exercises rooted in attachment principles. These tools become the building blocks for effective communication, emotional responsiveness, and a more intimate connection in your relationship.

Your love story: a secure functioning relationship

I can help you co-create a relationship with a shared understanding of why being together is better than separating. Within that understanding is a clear picture of what to expect from each other—to be fully collaborative, negotiate win-win solutions, and repair any damage to your relational bond, immediately. 

Start Here

I offer a no-charge, 30-minute, in-person consultation to see if we are a good fit. This will provide us time to answer and questions you might have, and have a rough idea of what to expect from me and the therapeutic process. Once we begin our full sessions, I have an online scheduler where you can manage your own appointment times.

About Me

August Jensen Therapist in Hood River

In my practice, I approach therapy with a unique blend of traditional western psychology and the ancient wisdom of Buddhism. This combination allows me to offer a genuine and authentic approach to healing and growth.

One of the greatest pains we carry is the fact that we were alone in dealing with difficulty and challenges, particularly in childhood. The counseling relationship we build together is itself a corrective experience.

No magic fixes or quick solutions will be offered because, well, there aren’t any, but also because I believe in the strength of our shared journey. My true passion lies in helping you uncover your own resilience and potential, guiding you towards a more meaningful and balanced life.

Remember, this is a collaborative process, and your unique story matters. I genuinely care about helping you live a more fulfilling life, finding harmony within yourself, and embracing the fullness of your being.
