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 come from a diverse background in business and music but have always had an interest in listening to people’s experiences and a passion for helping others to thrive. Life doesn’t always feel easy, and there’re times where it feels like you’re alone on your path to figure it all out… I like to think of my role as a therapist as being someone who can walk with you on that path for a while; someone who will provide encouragement, sometimes challenge you, and always be present with you as someone you can trust.
