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.

Hello, my name is Janet Buntrock and I want to congratulate you on taking this step to growth and healing, I remember my first experience as a client. I was so anxious that, when the counselor answered the phone, I hung up! I know what it feels like to be the one seeking help and I have over twenty years experience offering that assistance. My initial background was in Early Childhood Education, but I realised how much I enjoyed helping the parents in their roles as parents, spouses and as single parents. I then went back to school acquiring two Masters degre...

Therapy is the gift we give ourselves when we humbly accept not needing to know it all. When we give permission to someone else to hold a safe and sacred space so that we may learn more about ourselves. It can be sticky and uncomfortable, but the reward is a better more intimate relationship with ourselves. My name is Amber Williams and I'm a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I have over ten years working in the field, with the bulk of work being in Forensic Psychology. For about 8 years I've worked with seriously mentally ill individuals involved in the crimi...

Welcome! As your potential therapist, I would like you to know that I really value the relationship that we create together in therapy.
