My Approach to Helping
My conviction is that you can afford to trust yourself and make friends with yourself. My job isn't to fix you but to help you understand, trust and honor the person you already are.
If you are struggling with bipolar disorder, anxiety or depression I can help. If you're struggling with chronic and relational ptsd; going through a difficult transition, or looking to find new meaning and inspiration in your life, please give me a call to set up a free consultation.
Here's some reviews I've received from former clients on Yelp:
"Before seeing Lee, I had tried a number of different approaches to therapy--none of which were particularly helpful. Looking for a different direction, I found Lee by accident on the internet. His website was insightful and made me curious about this therapeutic approach. I sent an inquiry about the trauma I had recently experienced and within a day received a very thorough and thoughtful reply. I scheduled an appointment shortly thereafter.
I walked away from every appointment with some new awakening or self-revelation. I kept a journal in my car so I could write down as much as I could after every session. Having never meditated prior to this, I found it to be a very insightful way to feel things that were otherwise locked away. Lee has a unique talent to offer the therapy world. I walked in apprehensive that a meditative approach could actually work. Now I actively tell others about my experiences.
I pick up my journal a lot and read back on the things I learned and I feel forever grateful for the experiences Lee introduced me to, the encouragement he offered, and compassion he had towards all my experiences. Non-judgmental, patient, understanding, and open-minded. A truly great human-being and even better therapist."

"Lee saw me through a failing marraige and helped me to find sound footing post-divorce. Lee's therapeutic approach is different than I have experience in the past. He provided a safe environment to navigate my own path while offering supportive re-direction and tools to create the present and future that I desired. I am most grateful for his gentle yet effective approach through non-violent communication practices which encourage self love and personal growth. I would highly recommend Lee to anyone looking for support and the opportunity for growth in a wide variety of life's challenges." -Former client, Happy Valley, OR
Other appreciations from clients:
"Thank you so much for all your guidance... You have helped me listen to the most important voice of all, my Self."
"...it was your kindness that has made an infinite difference in my life and has allowed me not only to return to my industry... in a position of leadership, but to also begin to like myself and see the possibility of things I didn't see as possible before. Lee, thank you."
"I've come a long way from where I was when I began meeting with you. I'm a lot more comfortable with who I am now...less willing to put up with bad treatment from anyone..."
"I appreciate that you're willing to offer homework and things to try, instead of just listening all the time and not having much of a response... "
"You truly were a blessing during my time of need."
