Serving the communities of Bainbridge Island, Silverdale, Poulsbo, Kingston and Gig Harbor.
Thanks for visiting my website. I hope that it is helpful in answering any questions you may have about my practice.
Whether it’s painful feelings, distressing behaviors, confusing relationships, or other factors that bring you to seek therapy, together we can explore these areas and begin to make sense of them. Often the painful symptoms or feelings we experience can lead us to find out important things about ourselves that we don’t yet know.
I’m happy to dialogue with you about any questions or concerns you may have about beginning therapy. Your material is always treated with care and respect.
Feeling real is more than existing; it is finding a way to
exist as oneself, and to relate to [others] as oneself,
and to have a self into which to retreat for relaxation.
