My Approach

My focus is on helping people recognize and change patterns of thoughts, beliefs and behaviors which no longer serve them or those they love. I believe that stories, dreams and images reveal how each unique individual is aligned to universal patterns of what it means to be human.

As an archetypal pattern analyst, I look to see what is being expressed and what is a possible new orientation to the past. As a minister, I am drawn to the soul’s desire for wholeness and health. As an educator, I share the knowledge available in the wisdom traditions for personal growth.

Working with people of all ages as an educator, chaplain and minister has engendered a deep respect for the soul’s desire to live an authentic life. I have great respect for the challenges faced throughout the life span. I look to the wisdom available in the world’s religious and secular traditions for direction on how to navigate the vicissitudes of life.

In addition to my private practice in Olympia, Washington, counseling online via Stillpoint Spaces and teaching and developing programs, I continue to deepen my understanding of Psyche and soul through study, reflection, and creative pursuits. This allows me to authentically accompany others as they move through the process of self understanding and transformation.
