Eugene Therapists

Hunter Turner

Professional Counselor Associate

My name is Hunter Turner and I am a professional counselor associate working towards licensure. I grew up here in Eugene and have grown to love and become deeply involved in the community over the years. I am an extrovert who enjoys a good sense of humor, errs on the side of being a realist, and finds joy in relational depth. In my free time, I love playing games with friends, going for a run in the afternoon sunshine, eating tacos, traveling, and relaxing with my family.

I enjoy working with people of all different backgrounds. An important aspect of my own background is that I am a Christian. While my beliefs have uniquely shaped my worldview and understanding of wellness, I place a high value on respecting each client as a whole person – beliefs, lifestyle, and background – similar or different from my own.

Hunter's Approach

I believe there is immense beauty in the interdependent design of humans. Each person has intrinsic value, comes with a set of strengths, struggles with distinct weaknesses, and is uniquely shaped by their life experiences. As an individual seeks to pursue healing, change and wellness in their own life, it calls for a certain level of involvement from others who can come alongside them with their own strengths, weaknesses, and experiences. In other words, I believe healing happens in the context of relationships with others; a therapist is simply one person with a specific role in the context of a relational individual who longs for change.

I believe my role as a therapist is to explore the relationships between a person’s mental, emotional, spiritual, physical and relational health, and then collaborate on possible helpful adjustments. I strive to meet each person where they are at, foster a safe space for them to share honestly, help them utilize their strengths and existing supports, and equip them with tools to deal with the difficulties they experience. While I pull from a variety of therapeutic models to fit the needs of each person, I tend to use concepts and tools from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, attachment theory, strengths-based and person-centered therapy.
