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.

I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor and I work with people every day on issues such as anxiety, depression, relationships, addiction, social skills, self esteem, personal identity issues, improved focus and attention, etc. I look at my clients as competent individuals who merely need to overcome the same obstacles all human beings are prone to at one time or another. Improving one's ability to handle the challenges inherent in life is the path to success in life. That means I typically take a non clinical approach to counseling. I diagnose very conservativel...

Mental Health Therapy comes at us and says we must do things we are not comfortable with. It makes us look at things we want to push aside and work on things that do not come naturally to us. I have been asked many times what my approach to a mental health is. Well that really depends on the diagnosis. Diagnosis is not just coming up with a fancy label, it is discovering why we feel, act and think the ways we do. People are very complex, and our emotional life is even more complex than our physical body. What is my approach? When seeking out a therapist y...
