Real Counseling for Real People
Everyone’s journey is unique, so we offer a tailored approach for each and every one of our clients.
Tell us what you need, and we match you with a counselor who will be the right guide for you on your personal road to overcoming pain, finding hope, and discovering solutions.
We believe that you matter, no matter what.
We Believe in Hope for All
We seek to serve our entire community, so our practice is not built around a single specialty.
Ours is a space where everyone can find the right counselor for them and receive the care they deserve.
Our Counseling Services
We help people of all races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender identities, abilities, religions/spiritualities, nationalities, and socioeconomic statuses.
We focus on depression, anxiety, trauma, and grief & loss - and we offer specific counseling for all members of the LGBTQIA+ community and their families.
We empower our clients and equip them with tools to help them approach their real lives with courage and hope.
We create a community of support for our team and providers, so they have everything they need to serve every client well.
Joseph Klemz, a practicing counselor, founded Real Life Counseling in 2010 in Camas, Washington.
Before starting his own practice, he worked for five years in community mental health, serving adolescents and families with severe mental health issues.
From this background, he developed a desire to positively impact the community and create change through mental health services.
The practice has moved six times since its inception until we found our current home.
From closet-sized offices with ant invasions daily to office neighbors in rock bands – we’ve seen it all and then some.
But no matter the situation, we have always managed to serve our clients and our community with the best in mental health services.
