Mr. Aaron K Potratz

Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC


Focus on the Family's Christian Counselors Network

I think the ideal client is someone who knows they need help and is willing to work hard toward facing their difficulties. We know that change is hard and takes time, and we love walking through that process with our clients. Whether you're struggling with anxiety or depression, an addiction, conflicts in a relationship with your spouse, family member, or coworker, or unable to heal some long-term issue that keeps coming up, we can help. We know that it also takes someone who is caring and patient with you through that process, while also actively working to guide you to your goals.

I am the owner and supervisor of Discover Counseling. It is a private practice setting that is comfortable yet professional, and I've worked hard at making it accessible to as many people as possible. The most important thing you should know is that my aim is to integrate effective clinical practices with sound Biblical principles and values. This means that we will seek to uphold Biblical truths about God, ourselves, and our relationships while counseling you through whatever issues you are working through.

I grew up in Seattle and attended Seattle Pacific University, then moved to Portland and earned a Master's in Marriage & Family Therapy. I knew God's plan for me back then to start a practice, which I did, and He has been blessing me with wonderful colleagues who sharpen me, amazing clients who have taught me so much about life, and many complex issues that I've learned to be able to treat. Now I'm looking to align with other like-minded counselors so we can serve more people than I can on my own.
