I am a licensed mental health counselor, in the State of Washington for over 20 years. I am trained in multiple modalities: cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivation interviewing, client-centered therapy, rational-emotive therapy and hypnotherapy. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, couple's counseling, family therapy. I specialize in working with multicultural individuals and blended families. I am a minority mental health specialist for African Americans. I have experience working with military individuals.
My style of interaction emphasizes the importance of unconditional positive regard. I promote a couple's growth, healing and self-actualization. I treat all couples with dignity and respect, recognizing that therapy is a unique experience for each client. I tailor my approach to the couples strengths and their desire for specific behavioral change.
Counseling is a special journey for each person. It takes courage and motivation to seek help, working with someone you have never met before. I encourage the couple to openly discuss their concerns/reflection throughout the counseling process, so that his/her journey is a good experience. I recognize that it is an honor to help clients explore change in their live, at their pace.
I look forward to helping you help yourself.

It has been extremely helpful working with Edwin. He is respectful, always asks if we want feedback, and provides us with the guidance and support that we need. He checks in with us in between sessions and is very encouraging!
Edwin is supportive, always encourages me to say how I feel and validates my feelings.
