"He takes as much time as you need. He shares his
about spiritual approaches, or suggested reading materials to help with the issues I brought up. He has absolutely" found the right combination of medications for me. That is just very life affirming, and it allows me to embrace life. He is very insightful. He listens very carefully as opposed to nuisances of what I am saying. He asks questions to really pinpoint whatever is happening. He is highly in demand, so it is hard to get in to see him. Even though, you cannot get immediate appointment, he is so worth waiting for.

"I would take my children there if I had children. He also does addiction treatment and stuff like that. There is a pediatric office and there is another little office for his other" practice. He is an amazing doctor. He is really good. I will continue to see him.

"He has twenty years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults and couples. He listens very well and also incorporates visual elements such as graphs and charts into" the therapy. He draws on his white board a lot to explain things which really works for me. He mostly remembers what I spoke to him during my last visit. His office environment is nice but the building is a little
and is not big and professional. His office is however appropriate for him since he works alone.

Individuals having a hard time coping with various circumstances can often find the help they need working with a counseling or mental health professional. A variety of specialists are available to provide individualized care for specific needs.

Addiction Counseling

Addiction is a chronic disease that involves biochemical reward by using a substance or behavior to reach a pleasant or pleasurable state of mind or feeling. In many cases, addicts need professional help to stop.

Food addictions create overpowering cravings that may lead some to compulsively overeat certain foods well past the point of satisfying hunger, despite potentially dramatic long-term health consequences, like diabetes, heart attack and stroke. (Photo by Brandon Smith)

I had been there for substance abuse issues. He specializes in it and some other people looking for him will be looking for that. His knowledge of substance abuse stood out, he might have had personal experience or something like that. Regarding his availability it is hard to get in. He did a good job, he picked me and all that but I was not really fond, I guess it was hard to comprehend.

We talked once by phone about what I was looking for, and agreed to meet for one or two private evaluation sessions, prior to joining a group. I recall how he laughed when he looked at his book and realized that he had no openings for what I remember being about 5 weeks. He said he might call me quite soon with a cancellation, however, he never did this. He also said he'd ask his accountant if there was some way he could bill my health insurance which was ending March 31, for services in April.

My impression of him was that he has lots and lots of business (his rates are lower than the psychologists and psychiatrists, since he's a clinical social worker), and also that he was a little sleazy.

In the intervening weeks, I found someone who I thought seemed promising, and I belatedly cancelled my appt with
Olympia Substance Abuse Conselors Provider Name Locked
. I cancelled in the evening on Friday by email, and the appointment was to be on Monday morning. This is bad form and inconsiderate, and I didn't realize I was cancelling so close to the appointment. He sent me an email wishing me luck, and "reminding" me of his cancellation policy (which I don't remember him telling me - but I don't remember much!), and requesting I mail him a check for $75. I'm not sure where he came up with that amount, he says his hourly rate is usually $140.

Update: when I reminded him that he'd promised to call with an earlier appointment, and said I was planning a review on Angie's List, he waived the cancellation "fee". I'm glad we're not going any further than this.

I came to
Olympia Substance Abuse Conselors Provider Name Locked
for couples counseling. I was in a 13 year relationship that I was not happy in, but also could not see letting go of. Since then I have been able to end the dysfunctional relationship and realize what I want in life and relationships. I also feel that she has taught me how to effectively communicate my wants and needs while being able to distinguish those in others. The skills that you learn in her counseling sessions will make any relationship and interaction more successful, and you walk away feeling more self confident! Its a great place!

I am very happy with the therapy I have received from
Olympia Substance Abuse Conselors Provider Name Locked
. Her office is easy to get to, parking is easy, and it's very private.
Olympia Substance Abuse Conselors Provider Name Locked
is always able to fit me into her schedule, even when I've had to shift days/times. She is thoughtful, open, compassionate, and seeks to resolve and solve issues rather than create a dependent relationship where I would feel like I "needed" her indefinitely. She doesn't shy away from conflict either and doesn't just tell me what I want to hear. I'm SO grateful that I happened upon her online. I'm shocked that there isn't already a slew of reviews for her, since she is obviously a well-respected therapist. Please take my word for it. In group, several people have mentioned that they'd seen several other therapists that did not work out before they found
