Counseling and Therapy with a holistic approach
My counseling practice provides a holistic approach to therapy which considers you as a whole person (having body, emotions, mind, & spirit) who when supported with unconditional acceptance can not only achieve well-being, but also realize your human potential.
The types of changes which my clients typically bring to session typically include problems in functioning and in relating to themselves and others.
Also clients often work with me to help them find personal meaning in their lives. Others simply want to find themselves, to be authentic. I also guide clients to discover their own personal spirituality.
Whatever the reason clients seek me out as a therapist, in one way or another it relates to personal growth and the developing of their full human potential.
Counseling and Therapy Approaches
No single approach to mental health and personal growth can possibly address the many ways we seek to change. Therefore I am skilled in a variety of therapy methods which enable me to work with you effectively on many levels. Some of the methods in which I have been trained include:

Consider a free consultation
I believe it is important for you be able to explore your needs and the suitability of my working with you at no cost to you. Therefore I offer prospective clients the opportunity to meet with me for a free 50-minute consultation.
The easiest way to arrange a consultation or counseling session is to use this "Online Appointment Booking" link. There you can book your appointment at a day and time of your convenience. Of course this can be done by phone (503.226.2771) or email, but given my busy practice, I may not reply to you in a timely manner.
