Lisa Solterbeck LCSW, CHT, Intuitive Empath

I’m a non-traditional therapist who works with the mind-body-spirit connection.

Currently offeringPhone Sessions and Video Sessions

Treatment Approach

I help individuals move through blocked energy using the modality of Essence Illumination. Essence Illumination is a process that explores and illuminates the essence of who you are. It takes the perspective all people are whole and complete, yet may have barriers or blocks around the expression of their higher selves.

This modality is expressed in love and the full understanding that we do not "heal" anyone, we just hold a sacred space where the blocked energy can be released. I am honored to help you realign to your true self. Even if you struggle knowing who you are, I can see your essence and will help illuminate it so that you can see just what changes need to be made.

Session Cost

$185.00 for a 50-minute session


I see clients for mental health counseling and spiritual support and readings. My areas of specialty are grief and loss, trauma, purpose work, and self-fulfillment.

I am also available for outside group events, trainings, and speaking engagements.

Additional Services

Lisa Solterbeck’s passion extends beyond her private practice. In addition to counseling individuals and families, she is available for group events, trainings, and speaking engagements.

Private Healing Circles

120 minutes | $370 | up to 10 people

Healing circles can help groups heal, learn, and communicate more effectively. The small, intimate nature of a private healing circle is ideal for groups of friends, family, or co-workers.

Drawing on her twenty years of experience as a counselor, Lisa Solterbeck will create a beautiful welcoming space for the circle, facilitate deep and personal learning, and ensure a safe experience for all circle members.

House Blessings

120 minutes | $370

House blessings are often done for homeowners who move into a new home, for people experiencing paranormal happenings, or for those who want to know the story of the house and the land.

To perform a house blessing, Lisa Solterbeck will walk through the house with you and listen intuitively to what is there or has been there while partner Torrii Rogers follows with sage smudging. The process usually takes a few hours.

Public Speaking Engagements

$500 per hour for small groups (fewer than 10 people) | $750 per hour for large groups (10+ people)

Lisa has been an invited speaker at various universities, small businesses, hospitals, and non-profit groups, including Amerititle, Willamette Valley Multiple Listing Service, Rainbow Youth, Marion County Community Action Agency, Oregon Weatherization Assistance Program, Western Oregon University, Portland State University, Chemeketa Small Business Office, Willamette Valley Hospice, Salem Hospital, and Marion County Juvenile Department.

Common speaking topics for Lisa include grief and loss, diversity, workplace conflict, bridging leadership and employees, equality, and healing.
