Counseling & Mental Health | Seattle, WA
I have been helping people and part of the behavioral health and counseling fields for the past 29 years. I am one of the few private practice clinicians with an expertise in- and a willingness- to work with folks, with the most intrusive and unwanted symptoms and experiences. I believe that fundamentally people are not sick or ill.. Instead I believe big symptoms equals big unmet needs.
I work with a large number of couples using a unique method of help. No more awkward sessions together or silent or angry rides home in the car after sessions.
I work with those affected by and suffer from depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and psychosis related to schizophrenia, or substances such as marijuana.
Most recently I was featured in the documentary “Crazywise”- www.crazywisefilm.com. I am an advocate for needed changes in the treatment of mental illnesses in the United States.
I have experience as a counselor, manager, and a trainer in the private sector and in community mental health programs in Oregon, Missouri and Washington.
I have an M.S. from Southern Oregon University, and am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Washington. I’ve developed and taught post-divorce parenting programs. Throughout my career, I’ve spoken to thousands of individuals, via workshops, seminars on parenting, relationships, crisis intervention, and working with the mentally ill. I’ve taught Mental Health First Aid courses in Washington and in Hawaii.
I value living by the Japanese proverb “Fall Seven Times. Stand Up Eight”.
If you have sought help in the past and did not experience the results you wanted or seem stuck in terms of intrusive, unwanted behaviors or symptoms such as depression, anxiety, negative self talk and other experiences, call me for a consultation. I love what I do and want to help.
