Understanding what an experience means to a client isn't always a given, but when it happens, clients tend to experience a greater freedom with being themselves. I've had the privilege of witnessing people become more aware of who they are, in that environment of extended freedom. The inescapable impression these experiences have left me with, is a positive view of people. It's a view I'm grateful for the opportunity to have.
I moved into private practise in 2021. Prior to that I worked with traumatized populations for 16 years, providing clinical work and clinical supervision.
Outside of being a therapist I'm a husband, father to two children, youth sports coach, and the Pacific Northwest has been home for life.
I graduated with a Bachelors degree from Evergreen State College in 2004, and a Masters in Counseling Psychology from Saint Martins University in 2007.
I'm a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate in Washington State.
