Counseling for Individuals, Couples, and Families


As I slowly retire I am accepting fewer new clients. But there are times when a slot opens as a client reaches their goals and moves on.

So, if you are looking for a counselor, welcome! This website was created to help you determine if I might be the counselor for you. While I hope to answer your questions here, you are welcome to call me at 360.584.8929. I will be happy to talk with you about your specific interests and how my therapeutic methods might help.

My Vision

I believe it is my responsibility to treat my clients with care, to understand their issues at depth, to support them unconditionally, to fully accept them in all their brokenness and pain, and to guide them faithfully to wholeness and well being.  My honest presence with my clients, my positive regard for them, and my undivided attention and empathy toward them are the essential minimum requirements for therapy to work and be meaningful.

Positive regard, congruence, and empathy are the necessary and sufficient conditions for therapeutic change.
~ Carl Rogers

My Promise

Each of my clients will receive these requirements, and more.  They will experience the nurturing atmosphere they need to move toward more healthy living and they will gain tools to improve and maintain their choices to create happiness.

I may not be right for you, but there is a good way to find out.  Call or email me to schedule a session.  My contact info is listed at the bottom of each page on this website.  You can also see the Contact page for more information.
