Counseling can help you or your child have a more peaceful and fulfilling life…

quote-brownI have had the pleasure of knowing Paula for 12 years.  She has an exceptional ability to understand and connect with her clients. She stands out in her ability to eloquently work with those who are highly anxious.

In fact, after my patients meet with Paula sometimes I don’t even need to prescribe medication; or I have been able to reduce the amount of medication they have been taking. I can state confidently that I have no hesitation recommending Paula to my patients.”

-Jennifer Spence, M.D., Chief of Staff of Swedish Medical Center Issaquah
