I get by with a little help from my friends. -- Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Beatles)


More about Evan Kimble

I am a Psychotherapist and a Mental Health Counselor. My favorite activity is to talk with other human beings about what really matters to them. I believe in kindness, confidence, humor and creativity.

I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, but I have studied on the East coast and lived in England and in China. I thrive on bringing together different elements: science and spirituality, passion and grace, East and West, laid-back and intense.

I have worked with people from all walks of life. As a therapist, I can meet you where you are, and I can go where you want to go. When I counsel people, I bring all my tools, but you choose which ones we use: scientific, spiritual, analytical or down-to-earth.

When I'm not working, I keep busy being a husband and a parent, playing music, playing games, enjoying nature, and sharing time with friends.

Influences/Schools of Thought

My theory of counseling is strongly influenced by the holistic, egalitarian, community-minded approach of Alfred Adler ("Individual Psychology"). In addition, I incorporate ideas and techniques from Carl Jung, as well as Humanistic, Gestalt, Existential, and Systems psychologies. In addition, I am trained in EMDR, cognitive-behavioral methods, and more. My academic background is in East Asian Studies, with a focus on Buddhism and Taoism. I also studied for several years with a Cherokee/Osage medicine teacher.
