Hello and welcome! It's a pleasure to have you here. My name is Jerry, and I am thrilled to introduce myself as your counselor.
As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) based in Washington state, I bring a wealth of experience and a genuine passion for helping individuals navigate life's challenges.
With a background of serving in the Military for 26 years, I understand firsthand the unique struggles and experiences that those who serve under oath deal with. This has given me a deep appreciation for the sacrifices you have made and the resilience you possess. I consider it a true gift to be able to work with individuals from these backgrounds.
My approach to therapy is solution-focused, meaning that we will work collaboratively to identify your goals and develop practical strategies to help you achieve them. I believe in the power of positivity and believe that each individual has the strength within themselves to enact positive change in their lives.
Regardless of your background, I am here to support you throughout your therapeutic journey. Whether you're seeking assistance with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or any other concerns, I am committed to providing a safe and nonjudgmental space for you to explore and grow.
As a Christian, I am open to incorporating spirituality into our sessions if that aligns with your beliefs and values. However, please know that I respect and honor all faiths, and my focus will always be on supporting your unique needs and preferences.
I am truly excited to embark on this therapeutic journey with you, and I look forward to helping you discover the tools and insights that will empower you to live a more fulfilling and balanced life. Remember, you're not alone in this journey, and together we can find the solutions that work best for you.
I am licensed in Washington with 6 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, anger management, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, & career difficulties. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

I had 3 sessions with Jerry and each one has been very helpful. I'm 64 yrs old and have multiple issues with family, etc. He has a broad knowledge in how to navigate through my issues. He is able to keep things on track even with all the different family members we've been discussing.

Have tried four therapists/counselors before and so far this is the most help I've gotten in the shortest time.
