Hello, my name is Bridget Bortnick (she/her), and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate in both states of Washington and Oregon. I received my Master’s degree from Capella University. I have worked with many different individuals and enjoy helping clients build their self-esteem, find freedom from food fears, and learn how to have healthy communication with themselves and others. I am also passionate about working with people entering into or navigating the dating world, including the hardships and fun often associated with it. Similarly, I love empowering couples to build on their strengths and work on their weaknesses. I focus on the importance of clients finding the confidence needed to know themselves and each other, set boundaries, and enjoy romance. My approach is rooted in evidence-based practices and in listening to the client. In other words, I want to hear whatever you wish to share and will be there during the times you may not wish to speak at all. I believe counseling should be a positive and uplifting experience filled with comfort and support. Obstacles can turn into opportunities!

Suzanne Dilitto, MA, LMFTA
Hi there! My name is Suzanne Dilitto (she/they), and I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist Associate in Washington State and in Oregon State. I am a queer, bisexual, white, neurodiverse, gender-expansive femme person with invisible disabilities. I am telling you different aspects of my identity because we do not exist in a vacuum and our lived experiences influence the ways that we interact with one another and the society that we exist within. I hold a Master of Arts Degree in Marriage, Couples, and Family Therapy with a specialization in sex therapy from Lewis and Clark College Graduate School of Education & Counseling in Portland, OR and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology and Social Sciences with an emphasis in Gender Studies and Sociology from Washington State University in Vancouver, WA.
I’m trained in systemic family therapy modalities with specialized training in trauma-informed care. My therapy practice utilizes an integration of Narrative Therapy, Attachment Theory, Satir Experiential Therapy, and Somatic Therapy. My work is grounded in relational, Queer, Feminist Family Therapy, and Ecosystemic frameworks, which means that I am thoughtful and acknowledge that every single person exists in relation and connection to one another. This also means that I include in my work the knowledge that our daily experience is impacted by larger systems of oppression and power such as white supremacy, capitalism, heterosexism, and the gender binary.
I provide individual and relational (relationship and family) therapy that is anti-white supremacy, anti-diet culture, kink/BDSM-aware, sex positive, trauma-informed, and strengths-based. My specialties include working with folx over the age of 13-years-old who are experiencing anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, relationship distress, trauma, grief and loss, life transitions, queer & LGBTQIA2S+ populations, sexuality, and relationship constellations (nonmonogamy/polyamory/monogamy). In my work with you, I offer a nonjudgmental and supportive space in which humor and authentic lived experience is welcomed. Tears and all emotional experiences are welcomed. I offer you validation, curiosity, compassion, and empathetic challenges for change to take place.
