Therapy Services in the Gorge
Individuals & Couples
I provide a comfortable, non-judgemental, safe environment to build a relationship based on trust, non-violence, and unconditional friendliness. From this place, I help you change your way of being in the world through working with core material, such as feelings, beliefs, and memories. It is down here, deep in your subconscious, that I can help you discover the full expression of who you are and what is possible in your life. This process can be difficult at times, which is why I offer specialized training in the branch of psychology concerned with the alleviation of human suffering.
I am leading a 3-day mindfulness meditation retreat at the Trout Lake Abbey, Aug 4th-7th. Click the button below to find out more information. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Beginner and experienced meditators are welcome to attend.

August is one of those people that you immediately feel safe with. He is lighthearted, caring and has worked with his own mind long enough to be a worthy guide for others.
August has that unique quality in a counselor — you feel totally seen and accepted for who you are (including all the not-so-likable stuff) yet are immediately challenged to change your old ways of being. We highly recommend a session with him so you can see for yourself.
August’s wholeheartedness allows his clients to feel supported and safe. I highly recommend him for couples looking to grow through the difficulties of long-term relationship and children dealing with trauma.
August has counseled me on nearly every aspect of my life. His ability to see through my facade of coping mechanisms and suggest another way is a gift that will serve me for a lifetime. I encourage you to take the leap and go develop a relationship with August. You, and everyone else in your life, will be grateful you did.
As a graduate of Naropa University, I offer a compelling approach to therapy that draws on traditional western psychology, as well as the eastern practices and philosophy of Buddhism.
However, while therapy methods and skills are useful to have, nothing is more important than the counseling relationship. I don’t have any magic tricks or miracle cures — I just really care about helping people live more fully in their body and mind.
