Nichole Schumacher, 

Marriage and Family Therapist Associate

Arise Eugene

My name is Nichole Schumacher. I hold a Bachelor in Psychology and a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Simpson University. I am originally from Eugene and have recently moved back after living in Wyoming for many years.

One of my greatest pleasures in life is being married to my amazing husband for 26 years. I have been blessed with three adult children and one son-in-law. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, camping, reading, and taking walks on the beach. I am a Christian, and my faith is the foundation of my life. I have worked with clients from a variety of backgrounds and faiths. So, you can trust I respect your beliefs, lifestyle, and practices. Genuine, unconditional love and acceptance of others is my core value.

Can I help you ?

I offer Psychotherapy and Counseling for individuals, teenagers 13 years and up, and couples.

Psychotherapy and counseling can be helpful in a variety of issues. You can ask for my help if you have challenges in the following areas: 

Depression and Sadness

Anxiety, Panic, Worry or Stress

Trauma and PTSD, single event trauma’s or complex trauma (abusive childhood or relationships).

Marriage and Relationship Challenges

Self-Esteem Issues or Personal Growth


My approach to counseling is based on the belief that resiliency is human nature. Freedom, wholeness, and hope are possibilities for everyone. With the right support, clients can pull on their resilient strengths to make responsible choices to function in a healthier life-sustaining way. Counseling and psychotherapy can assist in the understanding and healing process. It is a privilege to help restore to individuals what the events of life, relationships, or our own choices have stolen from us. I look forward to coming alongside you on your journey to freedom and wholeness.

Therapeutic Focus

Every individual has different needs. Therefore, I employ a variety of modalities to fit your needs. Some of the modalities I draw from include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, EMDR, Strength-Based Approach, and Attachment-Based Approach. I create a welcoming, respectful, and compassionate environment. I take a non-judgmental, client-led approach in order to create a safe, therapeutic relationship where you feel respected, heard, and supported.


Before moving to Eugene, and since 2019, I provided counseling to community members, students, and teachers at Bridges to School Success in Redding, California. Before becoming a counselor, I worked in marriage ministry as an administrative assistant and teaching marriage classes (2½ years), and I mentored teens in a horsemanship ministry (2 years) in Redding, California. Before moving to Redding, I mentored teens as a Young Life leader (3 years) and worked as a substitute teacher for Kindergarten through 12th grade students (15 years) in a small Wyoming town.
