Our goal was to create a place for you to settle in and tell your story. Everybody has one, and we want to hear yours. Counseling is a process that encourages you to examine your choices, your thoughts, your dreams, your barriers and your pain in an effort to create the positive change you are seeking in your life. We believe that successful counseling is a collaborative experience between you and your therapist, and that finding the right fit is vital to that success. Refresh Therapy consists of several dynamic therapists who are ready to join you in your efforts to push past whatever is holding you back.

Bryanna Goodman, LMFT/Owner
I knew from a young age that I wanted to play an active role in people’s lives. I discovered that becoming a therapist was the perfect fit for me as it offered a special kind of relationship that allowed for deep, challenging conversations that resulted in personal change. I chose to study Marriage and Family Therapy as it fit perfectly with my belief that we are all affected by the different roles and relationships we have in our lives.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I received my masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Abilene Christian University and my Bachelors of Psychology from York College. I am a member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. I have primarily practiced in the Portland/Vancouver metro area for the past 8 years.
I specialize in helping couples of all types, from those who are trying to recover from an affair, those who are frequently fighting to those who are just needing some touch up in feeling connected again.
Here is what I offer:
- I will give you new skills to reconnect as friends
- I will give you new ways to repair your conflict
- I will help you re-spark your sex life
- I will help you embrace one another’s needs
Researched modalities I use: The Gottman Method for Healthy Relationships (Gottman Therapy) and EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy)
I specialize in working with individuals who are struggling relationally. This may include a marriage, boyfriend/girlfriend, family member, friend and/or yourself. I help you Identify who you want to be and who you want in your life by creating healthy boundaries and aligning your personal values with your choices. Common feelings may be depression, anxiety, loneliness, anger and resentment.
Researched modalities I use: CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Narrative and Solution-Focused Brian Green, LMHC
True change comes from within. I will be there with you to give you guidance and an empathic ear along the way to ease your journey. I treat my clients with respect and build a connection so that your goals can be worked toward with enthusiasm and attained through counseling.
I have been trained primarily in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing and my experience and focus has been on individuals coping with anxiety and depression, schizophrenia and bi-polar, and positive sleep habits. I have worked in a residential group home, supervised mental health and substance abuse case management programs, and worked in outpatient counseling on both the east and now west coast. I truly enjoy meeting and working with people of all backgrounds and with all types of concerns.
My research interests include males and counseling (including “man therapy“), and quality of life (QOL) for individuals living with terminal illness. I have been published twice for my work with the Hershey Medical Center for quality of life for individuals living with ALS. When I am not working, I love doing anything active outdoors, being an amateur “foodie”, and watching movies or reading.

I come to Refresh Therapy after working for over three years as a counselor in private practice. I got my Masters of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Portland State University. I have been married for 38 years learning much during the ups and downs of building a successful relationship. I have six grown daughters. My family experiences have increased my empathy and understanding of family and couple relations, which aids my therapy with the many couples I counsel.
I have been a group leader for addiction recovery groups, worked as a House Manager at Lifeline, LLC an addiction recovery agency and have counseled many suffering from substance and process addictions in private practice. I enjoy nature, sports, movies and my family. I have been volunteering and helping with youth groups for many years.

Jessica Lechlak, LMFT/Clinical Director
Ever since I was a child, I’ve always known I wanted to help others. I truly believe that people have the ability to make positive changes in their life, and I enjoy being able to be a part of that process. My job as your therapist is to help you gain insight and make positive changes in your life. I approach therapy in a non-judgmental way, with open communication, insight and humor. I believe that one of the most important parts of therapy is the therapeutic relationship, so I do my best to create a safe, welcoming space for you. I feel that therapy should be both helpful and enjoyable.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Washington. I received my Masters degree in Marriage, Couples and Family therapy from Lewis and Clark Graduate School, in 2012. I also have a Bachelors of Science from The University of Toledo.
When I’m not seeing clients I enjoy spending time in nature, playing games with my family, listening to music, being crafty, and exploring new places. I am engaged with two soon-to-be step-boys.

I understand that relationships are at the core of who we are as human beings and that we desire and pursue intimacy because we were created for relationship. Unfortunately, in life, we experience pain and suffering, death and destruction, and much trauma and loss. These experiences can leave us hurting and feeling empty and alone, and can spur us to seek help and relief.
Whether you are coming to therapy due to loss, an explosive child, a difficult marriage, a deep relational wound, or an overwhelming struggle with anxiety, depression, or sadness— whatever the reason—your decision to seek therapy is a courageous one. Participating in therapy is one way to enter the dark and painful parts of ourselves and our lives. This process allows us to come to know ourselves and others more fully so that we can experience life in a richer, more meaningful way.
I recognize that this kind of change happens when the therapist and client join together to pursue the truth of the client’s experience. This kind of joining or alliance puts in motion the natural process of growth that helps a client enter his or her pain and suffering, which ultimately strengthens the client’s sense of honesty, self-esteem, emotional tolerance, and their capacity for fulfilling relationships.
I believe strongly in this kind of therapeutic alliance and trust it to be a powerful force for change. I aim to provide an intimate and safe space in therapy where my clients can develop a new kind of relationship with me and transformation can occur.
My therapeutic approach is influenced by trainings in relational psychotherapy, attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology, and trauma recovery. I received my Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate and I am currently pursuing advanced training in trauma through The Allender Center.
In my free time, I enjoy time with my husband and I stay busy raising our two children. I am a lover of people, the Oregon Coast, Pilates, good books, gardening, dancing and a really good hike. I call Washington home but won’t forsake New Jersey, my birthplace.

Rebekah Crawford, LMHC
My passion as a therapist is coming alongside people in their most vulnerable moments. It takes great courage for someone to enter therapy and choose to allow another into their journey toward a more full, healthy, and hopeful life. I am dedicated to providing an environment of safety for clients from the moment they walk in the door. Clients have described me as caring, warm, accepting, and honest. I believe some of our greatest hurt in life happens in relationship with others, and I also believe some of our greatest healing also comes from being in relationship.
I’m convinced the relationship between the therapist and the client is one of the most crucial aspects of the therapy process. The therapy space allows the focused time and energy to uncover moments of life that often go unnoticed or disjointed.
My desire is to help people experience transformation in the ordinary moments of life by seeing the connections to the influences of their past and how that comes to bear on their present. I have worked with clients struggling with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, relationship conflicts, trauma, and past abuse.
It is the simple things that bring me joy, like going on walks with my husband and our two children, taking my scruffy dog to the park to play, or a good cup of coffee. I enjoy a great movie that makes me cry, laugh, or both. I also find energy from using my creative gifts for a fun DIY project.

In literary terms, the character that comes along side of the main character to offer help and support on the journey is known as the deuteragonist. Using a person-centered approach in counseling, I provide a safe place for clients to unload all that needs to be worked through, acting as a deuteragonist on the journey to healing and restoration.
My ideal clients are those who may be a little nervous but are ready to offer themselves the help of counseling. Come if you feel stuck in life or need to work through more serious issues of trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, etc. I have experience in a wide array of issues people face.
I specialize in grief and trauma counseling having interned at the in-patient trauma unit of Timberlawn Hospital and then spent years coordinating a family grief support program in Dallas. I also volunteered four years as the clinical director for Camp Erin Dallas/Ft. Worth, a national bereavement camp for kids 6-17.
I really enjoy counseling couples who are looking to enrich or overhaul their relationships. Using a lot of John Gottman’s material, I have seen couples make great strides in connecting and understanding each other, and moving forward in their relationships with hope and admiration for one another.
Counseling is a process that can be awkward at first, but I am very good at helping people settle in and feel comfortable.
Throughout my life I have lived all over the country and even spent some time in the Middle East. I married a man from Texas and we now have two boys who keep me on my toes. Being surrounded by boys is new as I grew up with four sisters and one brother. I love it! We spend a lot of time outdoors getting dirty and exploring. I enjoy running, hiking, dancing, conversing with friends face to face, food, dates with my husband, learning new things . . . the list goes on and on. I don’t like sleepless nights, spiders, grocery shopping with my children screaming, and being so cold my toes go numb.

Refresh Therapy was founded by Bryanna Goodman in 2010. A few years before that, she was working in community mental health services, dreaming about possibilities. Upon realizing her hopes and vision, she decided to take a chance and open her own business. It was thrilling and terrifying at the same time, but she knew there was a need for therapists, so we opened our doors in September of 2010 in East Vancouver. Since then, Bryanna’s had three littles. Bryanna’s husband left his job in the finance industry to come on board as a partner in 2015, making Refresh Therapy truly a family-owned business!
Our training and careers have led us to believe in certain standards for therapy.
