Counseling/Therapy services are provided to children, adolescents, adults and families and are designed to address areas of concern that client(s) would like assistance with.  The counselor/therapist will collaboratively work with the client(s) to assess the presenting issue and develop a treatment plan and course of action.  Counselors may examine the client's past as it relates to current level of functioning in order to promote healing and growth.  Counseling sessions are growth oriented and may utilize a variety of psychological approaches in order to best meet the unique needs of the cient.  Life can present us with mental, emotional, relational, physical and spiritual challenges that can all be seen as opportunities for growth.  


Counseling services are performed in-person and are covered by many insurance plans. Check with your plan prior to your first session so that you know 1) if your plan requires a pre-authorization, 2) if you have a deductible that must be met before sessions are covered  and 3) what your co-pay responsibility will be. Payment is due at the time of service. All necessary paperwork will need to be signed in order for your insurance company to be billed. Many clients prefer to pay for services out-of-pocket for privacy reasons, or to avoid dealing with insurance hassels altogether.  Payments may be made via cash, check or major credit/debit card.  For rates see Make A Payment page.  Slide scale rates may be available for those in need.  Call 425-359-9801  or send an e-mail to to schedule an appointment.

Life Coaching services are available for adults and are designed to help clients improve their quality of life by educating them on strategies they can use to enhance their performance in a variety of areas of their lives. Coaching clients seek to improve their life satisfaction.  Life Coaching does not focus directly on relieving psychological pain or treating cognitive or emotional disorders.

With the support of a coach, clients can take action to move towards their desired goal(s). The successful client is not excessively limited in his/her ability to take action or overly hesitant to make progress.  Life coaching concentrates primarily on the present and future.  Information from the client's past may be used to clarify where the client is today as he/she moves toward the

desired goal(s).


Life Coaching sessions may be performed in person, via Skype, phone or e-mail. Life Coaching is generally not covered by insurance, but may be re-imbursed by your employer via participating wellness programs.
