*****  My practice is full at this time, and I don't have a wait list. You are welcome to check back this Summer. 


...and hello there!

People come to counseling for many different reasons.

What brought you here at this moment is as individual as you are.

I believe that people need to feel a connection with their counselor to have the greatest impact. I want to provide an environment and relationship in which you can feel welcome, safe, heard and understood. Nobody wants to feel alone. My approach in the counseling relationship is to provide a comfortable place to facilitate connection. From that center, we can begin to explore the point in your life that brought you to this place. We then can use a variety of tools to help you reach your goals.

The challenges can seem overwhelming. Maybe a way of coping in your life doesn’t work anymore. You may be struggling with relationship issues, or maybe it’s difficult to be the kind of parent you want to be. You may be worried about your child or teen and what’s happening at school or with friends. Whether the difficulty seems large or small, or whether you or your family have experienced single or multiple stressors, there is hope.

I want you to feel safe on your journey toward a more peaceful, more empowered life full of greater happiness and satisfaction.

I would consider it my honor and privilege to meet you. Call or email me today, and we can set up a time for you to come to my office.  I really value the human "connection," and it's really important to me that you  feel comfortable. If you want to find out if this is a good match for you, you can come to the first session, see what it's like, and I can answer all of your questions. If  it seems like a good match, and I feel I can address what you are looking for,  you can pay for the first session at your next session (and I can bill your insurance company as needed). If it's not a good match,  I can offer referrals for other therapists in the area (if you like).

Together, we can explore ways you can begin to find increased joy, feelings of success, and deepen your connection with those you love.

If we agree to meet in-person, maybe you'd like to spend a little time close to the water. My office is only a block from the Edmonds Beach, ferry, train station and bus stop.  With your permission, we can walk at the beach, walk close to the office or sit in a quiet spot if would like that.  Certain factors may be considered (e.g. insurance policies for session location, etc.) Please send me a message through this portal and I will return your message as soon as possible.  You may also find it helpful to  contact your primary care physician or your insurance company for further referrals. Also be aware that if you indicate a day / time you want for an appt. this is not confirmation you have made an appt. ,  it's simply a request for your preferred time for appts.   

I look forward to hearing from you!
