My Approach

You are coming to therapy with stories. Your stories are unique and significant, and have helped contribute to your development as a person. You have stories that you love to tell; and you have those you would prefer to forget. Tim’s style of therapy offers a warm and safe setting where you will be supported and understood, while being gently challenged and encouraged to explore those stories. Tim approaches therapy from a systemic perspective, which means that he views you within the context of your relationships. Those relationships may be with those you call family, or friend; they may be healthy relationships or strained ones. Those relationships with the world in which you live impact you in many ways, some of which you may never have realized. Tim will provide gentle and insightful guidance as you explore those impacts. Tim earned a Master of Science degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the School of Psychology, Family, & Community at Seattle Pacific University.
