Mercer Island office: in the business district close to I-90 and designed in the style of a Native American Indian Long House.
I've included several ways to contact me, including a map to my office. Please give me a call, an email, or simply fill out the form on this page. I'm looking forward to speaking with you.
Please note regarding the Mercer Island office: Although the address is on Island Crest Way, you cannot access the parking lot from Island Crest Way. All you need to do is park below the building on the hill - the parking lot is adjacent to the building on the west side. Then walk up the steps to the entrance. A GPS map may not be able to get you to the unnamed ally where the parking lot is located. It is 1/2 a block west of Island Crest Way.
There is always plenty of free parking. Please print out this page and bring it with you your first time to my office.

4. Immediately get into the left turn lane and take your immediate LEFT (120 ft) into an alley (Note: if you come to a 4-way stop on SE 30th St & 80th Ave SE, you have gone too far) On the corner where you will turn into the alley you will see a two-story tan medical building called Mercer Park Professional Building.
