My name is Jacqueline Ilana Bradford (I prefer to be called Ilana) and I am a Marriage, Couples and Family Therapist.  I am a wife of 39 years, a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. (I know I don’t look old enough). I have over 29 years combined experience as a practical nurse, early childhood educator, outreach counselor, and couples therapist. My clients often tell me, “I like that you bring life experience into the therapy room.”  My passion is to learn everything I can about successful relationships and apply that knowledge to helping couples create resilient and fulfilling relationships.

I hold an MA in Marriage Couples and Family Counseling, and a Licensed Professional Counselor registered with the state of Oregon (OLBCT C5272).  I also am a Nationally Certified  Counselor, (NCC), registered with the National Board of Certified Counselors.

I specialize in couples therapy, treating trauma and affairs, parental education and maintain a private practice in Westlake Village, Lake Oswego, Oregon.
