 Listing, Who's Who in the West, in Education and Counseling 


 Simply, each of us is expert on our selves. Counseling, therapy or coaching basically provides a skilled, objective,   outside person to catalyze our energy, sharpen our awareness and help build the confidence we need for dealing with
 concerns we face. I use a well-researched, evidence-based method, also adopted by Group Health & WA Family Services.  

  Issues commonly addressed
   Problem Focus:  
Couples or family issues                    Enrichment:   Work satisfaction
  Anxiety*                                                                     Family communication
                                 Loss, grief & change                                                  Life purpose
   Exhaustion/Depression*                                             Deeper life connections*

 *The Gestalt "here & now" --where we are able to be attentive, listen well, and be real--is an important aspect of   successful therapeutic work, increasing expressiveness and genuineness. These benefits drawn from a candid therapy 
 or coaching process, lead to 
richer connection with ourselves, and others; and during sessions, they can jumpstart 
 good thinking for 
successful solutions to complex concerns.                                                            return
