Trevor’s psychotherapy practice helps people open to their experience so they can effectively create joy and meaning in their lives and let go of the life-patterns that limit them. Having spent four years within a Buddhist order, he uses his training in mindfulness to help others explore their embodied mind and develop calm confidence. After traveling widely, Trevor trained as a therapist, receiving his MA in Existential Phenomenological Therapeutic Psychology from Seattle University. He is a nationally certified counselor and is licensed in Washington as a mental health counselor. From 2007 to 2011, he worked as a psychotherapist in community mental health, treating the chronically mentally ill. He joined Ahimsa Counseling Services in 2008.
Trevor's psychotherapy practice is dedicated to helping people relieve suffering, improve their relationships, and reach their fullest potential. He practices Relational Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy from an Existential as well as Buddhist perspective. He enjoys working with individuals and couples on relationships issues. As an experienced mediator, with training in Non-Violent Communication, he uses Emotionally Focused Therapy in his work with couples to help deepen intimacy and navigate through conflict. Currently, Trevor provides psychotherapy for individuals, couples, and groups, in private practice at Ahimsa Counseling Services on Mondays through Fridays.
There is a lesson in Buddhism about the sixth patriarch of the Zen tradition, Hui Neng. While traveling, he came across two monks arguing as they observed a flag fluttering in the breeze. One monk said, “The flag is moving.” The other disagreed and said, “The wind is moving.”
Hui Neng corrected them both by saying, “Neither the wind nor the flag are moving. It is your mind that moves.”
