Welcome!

If you’re looking for a psychotherapist or counselor in Edmonds, you’re probably in considerable pain and your own efforts to move forward haven’t gained much traction. Psychotherapy can help, but it takes some courage to call a complete stranger and set up an appointment to discuss your troubles. It feels vulnerable.  Reading through this website should help put you at greater ease if you do decide to meet with me.

The unique “chemistry” between a therapist and client is at the heart of the therapeutic relationship. Your intuitive feelings are probably the most legitimate basis for deciding which therapist to see. To help you get a sense of me and how I work, in addition to reading through this website, I welcome you to interview me over the phone (no charge) and/or set up an initial consultation (for a fee).

The photos on this website were taken at Magnuson Park’s Wetlands Redevelopment. Concrete that for decades had covered much of the land was removed a few years ago to create a new wetland where life is beginning to thrive. To my mind, this is similar to the way psychotherapy can remove barriers and create the mental conditions for an individual to grow and thrive.
