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 37 years, a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. (I know I don’t look old enough). I have over 27 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 am a National Certified Counselor  (NCC) with an MA in Marriage Couples and Family Therapy (MCFT) and a registered post-graduate intern with the state of Oregon (OLBCT R3341). As a Post-graduate intern I work under the supervision of Chelsea Bliss Ward LPC and Domonique Sotello PhD.

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