My name is Oksana and I am a licensed Master Social Worker, and one of my main passions is bringing healing to those who have endured traumatic or stressful life events.

I work with children (10 years and older), adults, and families. I help them develop positive self-perceptions and solidify their interpersonal relationships so they may feel secure, at peace, and whole. Since no single strategy works for everyone, I have been expanding my knowledge in several modalities, such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness, Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Strength-Based Therapy, and others. I received my bachelor's degree in psychology and criminal justice and my master’s degree in social work from Boise State University. I have been a counselor at the Family Justice Center for nearly a year.

We commonly feel our lives fall apart when we go through trauma or significant life challenges. Allow me to come with you on your healing journey.

Tylene Channer, LCSW
Clinical Director/Owner


STRIVE Counseling Inc. 


Masters level counseling or social work intern at a reduced cost of $40 a session, paid at time of service. All interns are supervised by the Strive Counseling director, Tylene Channer, who has been supervising for 16 years. 

Currently we have a bi-lingual intern and are able to offer children through adults counseling at a reduced cost.

Counseling is about striving for progress and sustainable changes, not perfection. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 22 years of experience as a professional in both social work and counseling settings.  I currently provide counseling services for individuals (teens through adults), couples, and groups. I believe in making sure there is a good fit between the client and counselor and empowering people through focusing on their own inner strengths and abilities. I recognize that each person is unique in their own way and through the therapeutic process we will find what best helps you as an individual. I use a variety of therapy techniques to address problems. I have been providing EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) therapy for an often times quicker approach to trauma, anxiety, and stress for 14 years with high success rates. I am a trained ART  (Accelerated resolution Therapy) therapist and I am also certified in hypnotherapy. I have extensive training in trauma focused-CBT, and a variety of other techniques. I am able to supervise professionals as a registered clinical supervisor.

Master's Level Graduate Program

"Strive to fight your way forward and not be held down by the past." 

Let us help you on your journey by working along side you, to encourage and assist you with the tools to succeed.

I began my journey of helping others over 15 years ago after earning my undergraduate degree in Social Work. Since that time, I have worked with individuals and families impacted by the effect of abuse and neglect, including issues related to substance abuse and trauma. I recently returned to school and earned my master’s degree in counseling from Northwest Nazarene University in 2018, with a specialization in marriage, couple, and family counseling.

As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I have training and experience working with adults and children impacted by domestic violence and sexual assault. I have also worked with couples and families experiencing interpersonal stressors related to communication problems, infidelity, and parent/child conflict. I take a trauma-informed and systemic approach to therapy by integrating models such as Internal Family Systems, Gottman Method, and Trauma-Informed CBT. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy, an evidence-based technique used for trauma, anxiety, and phobias.
