We’re licensed therapists with over 25 years of combined experience helping adults, children, couples and families.  We’re married and have a family ourselves. We understand first hand the challenges of raising kids while trying to stay connected to ourselves as individuals and as a couple as well. We don’t have a one size fits all approach. Instead, we’ll provide a customized plan that’s based on the unique personality and needs of you and/or your family.

Yshai Boussi, L.P.C.

I graduated with my Master’s Degree in Applied Behavioral Science from Bastyr University in Seattle in 2003. The focus of my education and training was in marriage and family therapy. I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor with a license through the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists. Prior to getting my Master’s degree, I worked extensively with individuals, teens and families in various non-profit community mental health facilities in Portland.

I was born in Israel, I have lived in Portland since the age of two. I went to Wilson High School and graduated in 1998 from the University of Oregon where I majored in Business Administration.

In addition to loving the work I to do, I enjoy time with my family, playing basketball, watching good t.v. (The Wire and Friday Night Lights are two of my favorites), playing board games and going on hikes. You can email me directly at yshai@portlandfamilycounseling.com





Mariah Lebwohl, L.C.S.W.

IMG_1270I graduated with my Master’s in Social Work for Portland State University in 2005. I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker through the Oregon Board of Licensed Clinical Social Workers. I specialize in working with children, adolescents and families. I’ve been working with this population since 2001. I hold a Post Graduate Certificate in Work With Adoptive Families. One of my passions and areas of expertise lies in working with adoptive families. In addition to having a permanent foster child ourselves, I have a sibling that was adopted. As a result, I hold a very special place in my heart for this incredibly important, complicated and challenging decision and process.

I was born and raised in Portland. I went to Lincoln High School and graduated from Whitman College with a degree in Psychology. I enjoy my time with my family and friends, cooking and trying new recipes, going for long walks and reading good books. You can email me directly at mariah@portlandfamilycounseling.com
