Licensed Mental Health Counselor

"The purpose of psychotherapy is to reduce that part of human suffering, which is caused by errors of thinking."
Paul Watzlawick

Therapy is About Change and Growth

Promoting Growth

Learning from our experiences, growth, personal development and personal evolution have been studied for thousands of years and in recent decades we have learned how to apply those principles scientifically to expedite your therapy experience and become the person you are to become!

Our primary relationships are our greatest sources of happiness and, when they are damaged, our greatest source of pain and suffering.  Taking the risks and making the investment of time and energy need to repair those relationships can dramatically improve the quality of your life.  And modern techniques are much faster and more effective at reaching that goal!


My goal is to change your life for the better.

About Doug Bartholomew M.S.

I am a licensed mental health counselor with more than 40 years of experience, and everything I do uses state-of-the-art techniques. I started down this career path due to a desire to facilitate change in other peoples' lives. I was inspired by the quote by Paul Watzlawick stating: "The purpose of psychotherapy is to reduce that part of human suffering, which is caused by errors of thinking."

My focus is results-oriented therapy directed toward creating lasting change. I use techniques derived from the Transtheoretical Model and Motivational Interviewing. My goal is to provide results that have lasting effects on people. I work with each client to find out their unique needs, assets, and goals before setting a treatment plan. Then I work in a collaborative manner with each person or couple to meet their goals.

I have been in private practice in Belleuve, Washington, since 1990, treating individuals, couples and families. My book Un-Stuck: Freedom from the Prison of Identity is available on Amazon™.
