Dr. Aart Lovenstein, PsyD, LPC


with Aart:

Education/ Experience

received my master’s degree in psychology from the Hebrew University in
Jerusalem and my doctorate in clinical psychology (Psy.D) from the University
of Denver in 1989 (Specialty area: Family Therapies and Systems) . I am
licensed as a LPC in Oregon and have 30 hours of formal training in
supervision through Lewis & Clark College. I am approved by the Oregon Board to provide LPC & LMFT licensure supervision (see: 
http://www.oregon.gov/oblpct/ActionDocs/Supervisor%20Registry%2007-25-17.pdf )


was born to Dutch Holocaust survivors, grew up in Holland and emigrated to
Israel as a teenager.  I served as a psychologist in the Israeli Army for
five years treating combat and stress reactions in soldiers, most notably in
the Lebanon War. Upon receiving my doctorate I treated first and
second-generation Holocaust survivors in Israel, and victims of terror and
abuse for many years. I returned to the USA in 1994 and worked in community
mental health at Mental Health Services West (now Cascadia Behavioral
Healthcare) until November 2002.  At that time I started a private
practice in SE Portland, treating individuals, couples and families.  From
2003 to 2007 I worked as a mental health consultant and clinical supervisor for
Washington County Community Corrections, providing individual and small group
clinical supervision to over 40 graduate counseling psychology, clinical psychology,
marriage and family therapy, and social work interns.

From 2004 and until 
2010 I was an Adjunct Professor at PSU and taught a course entitled
The Psychology of
 sponsored by both the Judaic Studies and the
Psychology Department.  I am an advanced level EMDR practitioner and have
given workshops and taught on the treatment of trauma in Portland and
Tel-Aviv.  From 2008 until 2015 I worked as a full-time senior counselor
and clinical supervisor at Western Psychological & Counseling Services in
Portland.  Since March 2015 I have
started my own full-time private practice in NE Portland. 



I have
over 30 years experience in psychotherapy providing individual, couple, family
and group therapy with diverse ethnic/ minority populations;  I have expertise in treating clients with
personality disorders; trauma (EMDR, EFT, Dual Brain Tx) and abuse, depression,
anxiety and stress, loss and grief.


Theoretical Orientation

approach to therapy is systemic. This is a philosophy of psychotherapy which
looks at an individual within the context of self, significant others, gender,
health, education, employment, life experiences, culture, society at large,
etc. and how all these parts are interrelated and interconnected to each other.



I see the supervision process as a
collaborative partnership / group effort. Supervisor and supervisee are both
working together to enhance the assessment and treatment of the client(s) seen
by the supervisee.  Nobody has all the
answers.  Two pair of eyes, ears and
meeting of the minds together and the interaction (which can be a parallel
process in itself) between us allow for a fruitful super (extra, greater) –
vision (understanding, insight, ability) to occur.
