Lynne Nesbit

My name is Lynne Joy Nesbit. I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor (OR), and I am privileged to serve as director of Wise Counsel & Comfort. If I can assist in any way, helping to answer questions or provide a referral, please give me a call in Portland at 503-282-0182.

Severe Symptoms & Crisis

If you or a loved one here in the Portland metropolitan area is currently in crisis, suffering severe symptoms, I urge you to seek immediate help by going to the emergency room of the nearest hospital, or calling 911.

If the severity of your circumstances and symptoms require more than an hour of weekly counseling, I encourage you to consider an “intensive outpatient” treatment option. In the Portland metropolitan area, these are offered through a variety of health organizations. One of the finest is through Providence Health Services.  For more information about how to access these intensive outpatient services, please visit their website at: Providence Adult Outpatient Services
