These four documents are available to download and return before your first appointment. Please read the Disclosure form and ask any questions so we can discuss them before you sign.

For spiritual guidance:

Please fill out and return the Spiritual Guidance Information form.

Special note:

I am still meeting with clients primarily via zoom and telephone – support for healing and growth are possible even via phone and screen. Under special circumstances, we may meet in person for Sand Play or Brainspotting.

I can accept credit card payments with a small surcharge: manual entry of credit card payments is possible when we are not meeting in person. We can discuss other methods of payment, including mailed checks. As a Certified Counselor in the state of Washington, I am not permitted to “diagnose and treat mental disorders,” so am not eligible to be covered by insurance. While I do not have a sliding scale for counseling, I am sometimes able to accept clients at a lower fee.


with the night falling we are saying thank you
we are stopping on the bridges to bow from the railings
we are running out of the glass rooms
with our mouths full of food to look at the sky
and say thank you
we are standing by the water thanking it
standing by the windows looking out
in our directions

back from a series of hospitals back from a mugging
after funerals we are saying thank you
after the news of the dead
whether or not we knew them we are saying thank you

over telephones we are saying thank you
in doorways and in the backs of cars and in elevators
remembering wars and the police at the door
and the beatings on stairs we are saying thank you
in the banks we are saying thank you
in the faces of the officials and the rich
and of all who will never change
we go on saying thank you thank you

with the animals dying around us
taking our feelings we are saying thank you
with the forests falling faster than the minutes
of our lives we are saying thank you
with the words going out like cells of a brain
with the cities growing over us
we are saying thank you faster and faster
with nobody listening we are saying thank you
thank you we are saying and waving
dark though it is
