I help clients strengthen and develop successful coping strategies to improve their life situations, behavioral and emotional regulation, thought patterns and relationship satisfaction. I seek to consult to clients to help them succeed in their own lives according to their own goals and stated needs. My hope is to ultimately and as quickly as feasible to empower clients to manage their own lives independently; so they no longer need a therapist. I seek to create a safe haven for clients so they might speak freely and openly about anything and everything they need to talk about to solve their life dilemmas.

My counseling interventions are based upon strategies that have been demonstrated by social science research to solve relational, psychological, behavioral and emotional troubles. I also draw from understandings derived from 23 years of professional counseling. I offer to include Christian spirituality to any who request it as it may apply to a client's concerns.

A sub-specialty of my clinic is counseling for Problem Gamblers and their family members and friends. This is funded by local Casinos and the State of Washington and is usually at no cost to the clients.
