Professor of Psychology, Washington State University Spokane

Lice # PY0001596, Washington State

I am in clinical practice to help people lead more fulfilled lives no matter what their age, health condition or unique circumstances. My goal is to help people become more aware of their strengths and potential. I also think it is important for people to be aware of their unique challenges and to develop the ability to deal with them effectively and make good life decisions. Important life choices are never easy, particularly as they often involve other people we care about.  I believe we are designed to live relationally. This is why I often work with couples and families.  As a therapist I work to help my clients move toward a more full and productive life.  I believe this is most likely to happen when body, mind and spirit are integrated.  My goal is for me to help my clients become more integrated and aware human beings. I use a variety of strategies to help people but foundational is the provision of a safe and supportive atmosphere for guided self-exploration and change.
