Lee Giroux



Lee, or Leroy as many of his clients refer to him, has worked in the mental health field since 2007 when he first started working for a wilderness therapy program here in Central Oregon. Since then Lee has worked in a variety of settings with a variety of clients. He has experience working with adolescents and young adults, as well as adults. Lee spent time working as a mentor and Outdoor Adventure Director for a young adult transition program in Oregon before returning to wilderness therapy as a Field Instructor. Lee earned his Master’s in Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. While attending graduate school, Lee worked with adults at a low income, community based counseling center. After finishing his studies, Lee returned to Central Oregon to work as a wilderness therapist with adolescents and young adults for 3 years before accepting a position as a Primary Therapist with a young adult transition program.

Lee’s approach to working with his clients finds it roots in working with them from a place of non-judgment and the here and now, to help them to see how an experience from one’s past can inform one’s present day experiences. He holds the belief that we all have the answers to the questions we ask, we often times can simply just be lost in the dark; thus he will help you explore the hardships and struggles that you may have been through in your life until you are ready to turn the light on for yourself. He will hold a compassionate and caring space for you while you navigate through the struggles; offering support and an extended hand should you stumble. Lee will also help to support you as you build motivation to empower yourself to lead a healthier and happier life.

Lee draws upon a variety of therapeutic modalities in his work to help him meet his clients where they are: Gestalt, Transpersonal, CBT and DBT techniques, Relational, and Family Systems, and has extensive training in working with trauma and adoption. He is certified in the neuro-therapy practice of Brianspotting for working with trauma, addiction, depression, anxiety, co-occurring disorders, messages of shame, dysfunctional family systems and dynamics, and a variety of other mental health struggles.

Some of Lee’s other passions include woodworking, reading, mediation, motorcycle rides, camping and fishing with his family and dogs, and enjoying as much as Central Oregon has to offer.
