Port Angeles Mental Health Therapist and Counseling Services

I am a mental health therapist and counselor residing in Port Angeles, Washington.  I have a waitlist for face-to-face sessions at my office in Port Angeles; video therapy is available when you can't get to the office.  (Note:  I rent space in the Olympic Peninsula Counseling building but I am not associated with the other counselors who rent space in this building.)

I am seeing clients in private practice on Thursdays and some Saturdays.  Currently I have a waitlist in private practice.  Also, I am on staff at North Olympic Healthcare Network, offering behavioral health services on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  If you are a NOHN patient, please call the office to ask for a session with me at NOHN.  

I am accepting the following insurance:  Regence, Premera, Aetna, TRICARE, TriWest, Medicare.

Are you stuck in your relationship, career, or personal growth?

Do you feel stuck? Something’s got to change in a relationship… in your job… in retirement? Do you feel alone? Are you struggling with low self-esteem?

Something’s got to change, but you don’t know what to do next.

Let’s unravel the knot together.

We can use CBT, DBT, and Self-Compassion skills to develop mindfulness and relationship tools. We can use movement or storytelling to help you develop ease with your body and explore the important mind/body connection that supports courage to make the change you want in your life. We can work together to take one step at a time so you don’t feel trapped or stuck.

Let’s get acquainted. See if you want me to join you on your journey.

Let’s work together for the change you want.
