Change begins with finding a safe place to share your story.

I provide individual therapy for people who want lives that are more meaningful, joyful, and fulfilling and couples therapy for people who want relationships that work and last. 

Does this sound like you?

Sadness or worry holds you back from doing the things you love. 

You used to be focused, energetic, and confident. Now you feel empty and don't know why.

You're either drifting away from your partner or the two of you can't stop fighting. You have no idea how to fix any of it.

If so, there's hope! 


About Me


Hi, I'm Joe Butler a licensed mental health counselor in Bellevue, WA. 

Reaching out for help isn't easy. We're afraid people will judge us if they find out how messed up we really are. We judge ourselves for not being strong enough to fix our own problems in the first place. 

So we start pretending. We pretend to be happier than we are, more successful than we are, stronger than we are. We get pretty good at it too. So good in fact that the pretending parts begin to take over and the real parts start to fade away. That's where the trouble begins and where I can help.

You don't have to become someone you're not in order to be happy. In fact, it's the other way around. Living fully only comes from bringing all of who you are to the life you currently have. 

For more than 25 years I have been helping people learn more about who they are (with their heads) so they can risk more of who they are (with their hearts). When you know how your head works and how your heart works, you can make you life work! Find out more about me and how I can help.
