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.

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in Washington State and Massachusetts, and I place a high value on therapeutic "fit": when a client finds the right therapist and that relationship is carefully cultivated over time in a collaborative environment built on trust, healing and transformation can follow. I use warmth, humor, and authenticity to create a safe space for my clients to explore deep existential questions and engineer systems of lifestyle and relationship change. Therapy itself is a relationship. If we are a good fit, we will cocr...
