Andrew Stuck, MS, LPC

Andrew has been providing therapy services since 2012 with a graduate degree in Clinical
Mental Health Counseling from Southern Oregon University. He has worked in varied
professional environments throughout his career including community health clinics, county
mental health agencies, substance use treatment centers, elementary, middle, and high
schools, and private practice. He works with people throughout the lifespan as well as couples,
families, and groups. A focus of his practice is providing support for the various “helpers” in the
community including healthcare professionals, teachers, law enforcement/first responders, and
parents. In addition to private practice, he is currently co-facilitating a free monthly healthcare
worker support group for the Rogue Valley.

Andrew’s second passion in life is teaching, and as such, he has been fortunate enough to be an
adjunct faculty member for Southern Oregon University’s Department of Psychology and
Human Services Program since 2015. He has engaged in, presented and published research
regarding wellness assessments in higher education settings, bullying in schools and the efficacy
of primary prevention programs, and impacts of mentoring relationships for mentors. He feels
that staying connected with the academic community allows him to continue adjusting his
approach in the helping profession as we continue to gather updated information.

Andrew firmly believes that “everyone is doing the best they can with what they have, and that
the world always has something for us that we haven’t prepared for. It is during these times
when we can rely on our unmatched ability to adapt and learn, which allows us to handle
whatever the world has to throw at us.” He understands that his role for others in this position
is not to have answers, but instead, provide a safe, nonjudgmental space as well as reflection
and skills training for people to reconnect to that innate ability to persevere. His foundations
for doing so are rooted in evidence based practices in the fields of neurology, biology, and
psychology including Neurosequential Model of Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mind
Body Bridging, Emotion Focused Therapy, Collaborative Problem Solving, Parent Child Interact
Training, Attachment Theory, Positive Psychology, Internal Family Systems Therapy, Nonviolent
Communication and Motivational Interviewing. Andrew also welcomes any spiritual practices
into the space because “regardless of how we define our own spirituality, this is the most
intimate way we relate to the world. Not making space for this, means we are not utilizing a big
piece of who we are as humans.”
