Through my formative years, I witnessed the injustice and pain that are the tribulation of many. I witnessed the hopelessness felt by homeless families, the trauma domestic violence can inflict on those forever impacted by it; and the silent complicity afforded abusers.

I understand that life presents us at times with seemingly insurmountable challenges however, regardless how formidable the challenge, when presented with skilled support, and unconditional positive regard the human spirit can rise.
My life experiences & formal education have uniquely instilled in me the characteristics needed to attract, relate, then respond to clients reluctant to participate in counseling services.

Contact me, I'm here to listen." -Miles (253)777-9782 ext 700 firstname.lastname@example.org
