Creative Solutions For Daily Problems...

You know how people get repeatedly stuck and hurt in relationships and don't know what to do? I help with that. I listen to you and help you get unstuck. I help you figure out how to heal from your hurt and create new positive ways to do relationships.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a PhD In Psychology. I see clients in the Vancouver, WA. Portland Metro and Olympia-Tacoma areas of western Washington.
