My name is Jennifer Szolnoki and I am a Counselor and Life Coach. I offer heart centered support to help you create change in your life:

  • Individual Counseling (adolescents and adults). I help people with depression, anxiety, life changes and transitions, grief and loss, trauma, stress, low self-esteem, relationship issues, health challenges, emotional stress or distress, insomnia, adoption, and adult adoptee issues.
  • Couples Counseling. I help couples in distress deepen their connection to each other and to themselves. Together, we address unhealthy patterns and blocks to trust and intimacy that can lead to isolation, upset, and potential separation.
  • Life Coaching. I provide wellness coaching, resume and interview coaching, and personal change coaching. In our work together, I help people form clear goals, identify what’s holding them back, and take supported action to move past their blocks, reach their goals, and create a life with deeper meaning and fulfillment.
Counseling and Life Coaching are different processes with different goals - though they can use some of the same skills and tools.My approach is highly individualized, based on what's most important to you and your goals. The counseling/coaching relationship starts with you. I offer a free consultation
to help you decide which is best for you if you are unsure.

Experience: I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and earned my Master’s of Social Work (MSW) from the University of Washington. I have over 14 years of clinical experience including: General Counselor/Youth and Family Counselor; Psychiatric Assessment Team Evaluator; Child Protective Services Social Worker; Coordinator of an at-risk youth mentor program; Permanency Planning Social Worker; Life/Career Coach; and Adjunct Faculty teaching life skill workshops for adults. In addition to my social work clinical training, I have received coach training through the ICF certified school Mentor Coach, which has a focus on positive psychology (the scientific study of what helps people thrive).

My name is Paul Grim and I am the counselor at White Salmon Counseling.

Counseling (also known as psychotherapy) is one of the most productive methods for achieving change and personal growth available to us. Counseling takes place in a strictly confidential setting where you are safe to disclose personal information without being judged.


Please browse around to find out more about my background and style. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call or e-mail.


Therapeutic philosophy

My approach is called “transpersonal psychology” which I implement using a mind/body approach in my counseling sessions.

Transpersonal psychology combines a variety of approaches in psychology, including behaviorism, cognitive psychology, neurology, and humanistic psychology, along with other disciplines, including Eastern and Western philosophy, and mindfulness.


Traditional psychology is interested in a continuum of human experience and behavior ranging from severe dysfunction, mental and emotional illness at one end, to what is generally considered “normal”, healthy behavior at the other end and various degrees of normal and maladjustment in between. Transpersonal Psychology is a full spectrum psychology that encompasses all of this and then goes beyond it by adding a serious scholarly interest in the immanent and transcendent dimensions of human experience.


Therapeutic techniques

I focus on the client’s entire lifestyle including physical activity, diet, sleep, work, purpose, meaning, and relationships. I’m a big fan of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.

Professional Background

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington State. License number LH60195290.
I graduated with a masters degree in counseling psychology from Southwestern College (CACREP equivalent) in 2005.

In addition to mainstream counseling and psychology, I have an extensive background in transpersonal psychology, eco-psychology, neurology, meditation, yoga, physical fitness, nutrition and wellness.


I have experience working in a clinical setting in community mental health as well as my own private practice since 2006. I have cared for people with a broad range of conditions including family problems, legal troubles, complex trauma disorders, attachment disorders, chronic pain, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, asperger syndrome, personality disorders, addiction (unwanted habits), narcissism, eating disorders, sexual dysfunction, pornography, relationship difficulty, bereavement, sports psychology, career counseling, life transitions, stress management, men’s issues, and spirituality.


I am a native of Washington State and have lived in Klickitat County since 1991 where I take full advantage of our incredible natural wonders to stay mentally and physically healthy!

My experience is with children, adolescents,and adults with issues of depression, anxiety, abuse, parenting issues, chronic pain, illness, and PTSD/trauma. I use play and art therapy techniques for children who have difficulty verbalizing their emotions. I use outdoor counseling techniques for more active clients such as teens and children. Additionally, I practice therapeutic bodywork. Overall, I offer a safe refuge of a collaborative therapeutic relationship for the traumatized, depressed, or anxious client where they will hopefully gain new coping skills, boundaries, and relationships to replace the traumatic pain they have left behind.





LICENSED MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELOR
Compassionate Counseling
Sarah Oaks, MS, LPC, LMHC
Licensed Mental Health Counselor

We’re a left-brain, thinking society. We value Science, problem-solving, lists, strategies, formulas, controlling our emotions. And these are all great tools for understanding—rational thinking is the scaffolding of a happy life.

When we leave out right-brain ways of knowing, though, we stifle the parts of ourselves that bring juice to our daily lives; that bring a sense of personal direction; deep connection with our spirituality and with our friends and family; creativity; joy. This disconnection leaves us feeling anxious, confused, and depressed. To cope with these painful states, we drink too much; eat too much; work too many hours at unsatisfying jobs; get into relationships that we know aren’t healthy for us. We may have debilitating panic attacks; become over-controlling of ourselves or of others; feel angry and irritable, or unbearably sad. We’re confused by our repeating patterns. We do everything that we were taught brings success, but we still don’t feel happy.

Therapy helps connect the two parts of the brain. A warm, non-judgmental listening environment helps us to experience our genuine emotions and release depression, anxiety, and shame. As we listen to our bodies and learn to experience emotions and allow our emotions to work in tandem with our rational mind, we begin to re-connect with our creative, erotic, and spiritual energy; create loving and mutually sustaining relationships; think of novel ways to solve problems; and feel our sense of purpose return.

It is my great joy to be with my clients as we work together to create that deeply satisfying life. I’ve been working in the mental health field for the past 15 years, 12 of them as a Master’s-level therapist. In my work with clients, my first priority is to create an environment of deep acceptance. With that safe and warm relationship as the base, clients learn to reconnect with their right brain, tapping into the juicy sap of their highest self and purpose in the world. It’s an exciting, lifelong, ever-unfolding journey! I’m delighted to walk alongside you whether you’re taking the first steps, or are far down the healing path.

My practice is cash-only, with sliding-fee negotiable.

Looking forward to meeting with you soon!
