Counseling &  Psychotherapy


COUNSELING & PSYCHOTHERAPY​ for Children, Teenagers, Adults and Couples

John Santin,  Professional Counselor Associate

Arise Eugene

My wife and I moved to Eugene 20 years ago, and we still live here–three kids and two dogs later. My biggest desire in life is to help people lead more intentional, self-directed lives. Sometimes that requires slowing down and getting out of our own way. Sometimes we need to contend with more severe mental health challenges. Either way, I believe that positive change and healing are possible.
