Hope Can Be Found


I launched Parkside Counseling to help bring hope and healing to a broken and hurting world. For a number of years I served as a faculty member, counselor, and substance abuse specialist at a community college in Seattle, but I increasingly felt that I could make the deepest impact by delivering direct care to clients.

Upon finally arriving home to Montana after years away, I took the opportunity to work with people in the Flathead Valley who managed severe debilitating mental illness including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. However, when a local pastor voiced the need for help with counseling people who struggled with clinical issues, I knew the time had come to open a practice that could reach further into the community, without agency restrictions. And so I opened Parkside Counseling.
