Willamette Anxiety Clinic
Twin sisters Allison and Jennifer Labrousse dreamed of opening their own clinic while studying for their Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at George Fox University. Shortly after graduating, Allison and Jennifer opened Willamette Anxiety Clinic to turn their dream into a reality. Utilizing evidence-based treatment, Allison and Jennifer focus on providing counseling services for individuals experiencing anxiety and depression, tailoring treatment to their client's specific circumstances, values, and needs.
“We have a passion for helping our clients experience healing and are dedicated to their mental wellness,” says Allison and Jennifer. “We’ve been in business for one year, and it’s truly been a privilege and joy to work with our clients and walk alongside them in their healing journey.”
As their work typically involves face-to-face interaction, Allison and Jennifer have been forced to pivot their business model due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Adapting to the times, Allison and Jennifer are now taking appointments via telehealth, providing an opportunity to engage in remote therapy with their clients.
While telehealth has allowed Allison and Jennifer to continue their therapy work, they nonetheless lost one third of their total revenue during March and April. To assist with operating expenses, Allison and Jennifer were awarded a $1,500 Tigard CARES grant.
“The grant has significantly reduced the overall stress of making ends meet during this time,” says Allison and Jennifer. “We are thankful to still be open, and we have the Tigard CARES grant award to thank for that! We look forward to serving individuals in the Tigard and surrounding area for many years to come.”
