Washington is known for the Space Needle, a beautiful observation tower that lets you see the city. Life can be like an observation tower. Sometimes, you may see all of what life has to offer in front of you. Other times, the line to the tower may be crowded and you never get to see it. 

A counselor can be your VIP ticket to getting in front of the line so you can see all of what life has to give you.

Counseling is a side by side journey of exploration and imagination. As a counselor licensed in both the state of Washington and Oregon, I am trained, experienced, and ready to accompany you on your journey. Many people seek counseling at a time when life is troubled.

Hi, I’m Felicia and one thing I know for sure is that “confusion is the first step towards clarity” (in the words of Syd Field). It is so easy to get caught up in our heads-there is so much to pay attention to that we may have missed other clues that might help us navigate through the murkiness of our thoughts and feelings. I use a combination of different therapeutic techniques and work from strengths-based, mindfulness-based and attachment theory perspectives to help you explore issues impacting you during times of change or personal growth.
