News and Information: New office space – More office hours – New groups – More resources

NEW OFFICE SPACE: In November 2010, I moved  into an office at the new ARRO Community Center, 2360 SW 170th Avenue, Beaverton OR. 97006.  The Center adjoins the Tualatin Nature Reserve, and has a lovely outdoor area. (Look for the Project Pace sign.)The new location provides expanded opportunities for groups, and more available hours to schedule appointments.My practice still includes general counseling as well as individuals and families who are coping with “invisible disabilities.”Appointments may be scheduled in the Lake Oswego office by special arrangement. More office hours.New groups.More resources.
