  • Dr. Evelyn Buschur was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. Shortly after her birth, her father began a career in the US Coast Guard. Due to the frequency of relocations associated with the military, Evelyn has lived throughout the USA. The family spent 3 years in Hawaii, where Evelyn learned about Native Hawaiian treatments for various illnesses.

    As a child, Evelyn wanted to be a scientist or a doctor. While attending the University of Maine, Evelyn concentrated on becoming a scientist. She worked in various labs on soft grant money. The sporadic nature of grants led Evelyn to concentrate instead on medical school. However, watching her brother try to regain his health in a hospital setting helped Evelyn to realize that conventional medicine was not for her. During this time of reflection, she re-discovered Native treatments and found naturopathic medicine. Evelyn graduated from the University of Maine with a degree in biochemistry with distinction and moved to Portland, Oregon to attend Naturopathic Medical School.

    Upon graduation from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine, Dr. Buschur began her practice in Portland, Oregon. She started teaching at Portland Community College in 2006, and at Clark College in 2016. In 2015, Dr. Buschur moved her private practice to Camas, Washington. Dr. Buschur stopped teaching at Clark College to become the Advanced Medical Practitioner for Clark College's Health Center.

    Dr. Buschur’s goal at the Counseling and Health Center (CHC) is to provide high quality primary healthcare to students. This includes immunizations and testing as required by their specific programs, physical exams, naturopathic health care, management of acute and chronic health concerns, and prescriptions. The CHC services are no cost or low cost.

  • (Pronouns: she/her/hers) Hello! My name's Shayna and I've been working as a counselor at Clark College since 2012. I have a master's degree in Mental Health Counseling and I'm dual licensed in both Washington and Oregon (WA LMHC #LH60535139 / OR LPC #C5781).

    My therapeutic style is positive, nonjudgmental and holistic. I practice from a neurodiversity paradigm and I am affirming of diverse, intersectional identities (all the things that make you YOU). I believe in working collaboratively so that your counseling experience is helpful and delivers quick results.

    I've been influenced by a bunch of different counseling theories including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy and mindfulness-based practices. I've also received additional training in Somatic (body-centered) Psychology, Trauma Informed Care, Telemental Health, Clinical Hypnosis, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.

    When I'm not working, I love cooking with my family, exploring new places, and knitting sweaters for my dogs, Lebowski and Chewbacca.

    I work in the front office here at the Counseling and Health Center. When you email, call or come in to schedule an appointment, I am usually the person you'll see! I am always happy to answer any questions you might have about the services we provide in our clinic. I can also help track down resources that might be available to you on campus or in the community.

    When I am not at work you can find me hanging out with my tiny dog, Herb. He and I like to take road trips to explore different parts of the beautiful pacific northwest. I also love crafty projects, reading, and learning new things. I have worked at Clark since 2014.

  • Professor

  • (360) 992 - 2415

  • I am a Ukrainian therapist who is actively supporting those impacted by the Russian war in Ukraine. Though I speak Russian, I was born in Ukraine and have family and friends there who are currently being impacted. I understand the complexities of the situation. Despite my lack of ability to speak Ukrainian, I am here to support those impacted in any way that I can.

    **A special note for Slavic/Russian-speaking students: I am a Russian speaking counselor from the Ukraine. I am very aware of the intricacies of the Russian speaking/Slavic culture, the uncertainties that may come with seeking counseling and the concerns that arise around confidentiality. I want to reassure you that I am bound by law and ethics to keep what you say or even that I know of you in complete confidence. My office is a place that you can come and be your whole self without concerns that this information will get back to those in the community.**

    (Pronouns she/her) I hold a master's degree in marriage and family therapy from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I'm passionate about working with teens and adults and have done so since 2012. I believe that you are unique and deserve an approach that is tailored to your needs. During our sessions, I pay attention to the different identities that you and I both hold and how that may impact our work together. I aim to provide a comfortable, judgement-free space where you can feel heard and understood as we work towards your goals. I incorporate several approaches that include solution-focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based therapies, EMDR and others. Most importantly, I try to be myself and create a space where you feel like you can be yourself too.

    As an immigrant who grew up with a foot in each culture, I have a deep understanding of the intricacies involved in honoring your roots while navigating your current environment. I know that it can be difficult to meet the expectations that are asked of you and still stay true to yourself. I have a special interest in working with folks who are going through various acculturation and assimilation challenges and trying to make all of this work for them. I also have experience working with folks struggling with anxiety, depression, family conflict, trauma and other challenges. I am an LGBTQ+ ally and Health at Every Size informed.

    I am also an academic success coach and can help you with time management, study skills, test anxiety, procrastination, motivation and other skills you will need to be successful in college.

    In my free time, I can often be found on a soccer field somewhere watching my son play or wandering around enjoying the beautiful PNW.

    In addition to Washington and Oregon State Law, I follow the codes of ethics for the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy. More consumer information from my licensing boards can be found here: (WA state) and here (OR state)

    Our reasons for coming to counseling can be complex, but there’s one thing that all folx seem to be looking for: We want to live our best life.

    Each of us is at a different place on that journey and have an array of strengths and obstacles to get where we want to go in our lives. I’m honored to help you identify what you want to change and help you do it. I use a bunch of different techniques and theoretical models to help people move toward a life that they love (including Liberation Psychology, Psychodynamic, Humanistic, Cognitive Behavioral, and Acceptance and Commitment approaches).

    I am intersectionality aware, which means I am mindful of the ways in which our multiple identities impact stress levels, access to resources, and engagement with the complex systems in higher education and society at large (i.e. race, gender conforming & non-conforming identity, sexual orientation, disability, documentation status etc.). I also take into account my own multiple identities as I work to be of service to you. I use the APA Multicultural Guidelines as a minimum standard to guide this part of my work (Read more here:

    As a white, Queer, cisgender woman, I may or may not be the best fit for your therapeutic needs. I trust you to identify what *you* need from a therapist and am happy to talk with you about it. Here is a tool that may aid you in "interviewing" potential therapists (including me!) to join you in your healing path:

    I have completed the requirements (70 hours of specialized training, experience and feedback) to earn the NARM Informed Professional Certificate. Together, you and I may determine this approach could be helpful to you in the event that complex trauma is part of your presenting concern. Read about the NeuroAffective Relational Model here:

    I am also a graduate of the Embodied Social Justice Certificate program, led by Dr. Sera King, and am constantly working on understanding and applying principles of liberation justice in education, mental health, and activism settings.
