David Lechnyr, LCSW
My name is David Lechnyr. I am a counselor and psychotherapist who specializes in treating depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and marriage counseling. I come from a multi-generational family of therapists and psychologists. Both my sister and father are also therapists. I have grown up in this environment all my life and "breathed the air" of psychology, so to speak. This experience has taught me that the hardest part of change for anyone is in getting to know yourself and to face the true fears that keep you awake at night. If I can help during this process, I would be glad to assist you.

David Lechnyr's Care Philosophy

I enjoy helping people connect with what they have lost in both life and in themselves. I feel very strongly that we can let what happens in our lives make us angry, resentful and afraid, or we can embrace these events as a way to grow stronger, yet softer, and end up being more open to what scares us. This process of personal recovery is amazing to witness and I am always impressed by the motivation of my patients towards change.

Eugene, OR |
I like that working with David offers a supportive yet challenging atmosphere. In the past I have been to too many "talk therapists" who just nod and don't really help you with anything. While it has been difficult for me at times, it has made a lot of difference in my life working with David. Highly recommended!

I was pleasantly surprised by how approachable and kind David is. I've never been to counseling before so was unsure. It was very helpful.

David was personable and easy to talk to. I was hesitant to see a counselor at first, but he was supportive of my needs and concerns. I felt listened to.

David Lechnyr says...

Psychotherapy is a fancy way of describing how therapists help people suffering from a variety of mental and emotional issues. This can cover complicated situations like severe depression, panic attacks, anxiety, grief and loss. It can also cover more general issues such as marital struggles, low self-esteem and situational depression. In a nutshell, psychotherapy is a way of describing a technique that a therapist uses in treating problems that affect our mind and emotions. My hope is to help assist you in your personal growth and life goals.

David Lechnyr says...

Since receiving my clinical degree in 1992, my approach to therapy has been influenced by Carl Rogers, Albert Ellis, John Gottman and Pema Chödrön. Specifically, I use a blend of psychotherapy techniques including:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: Our thoughts and behaviors can directly affect our emotions
  • Gottman Method Couples Therapy: How we talk with our partner is more important than what we talk about
  • Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction: How we respond to a stressful situation generally dictates its impact on us
  • Acceptance & Commitment Therapy: Personal change and growth can be difficult when deciding to pursue dreams rather than goals
