As the owner and lead therapist of Clarity Counseling Seattle for the past 20 years Justin has worked with couples, polycules, and individuals of all gender expressions and sexual orientations. Though he is a straight cis-gender male, he is also a strong LGBTQ+ ally and advocate, and thus has intentionally created a team at Clarity that is diverse in sexual identity and expression. As an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist (CST) and a Certified Gottman Therapist (CGT)  he has been hired by The Gottman Institute to consult on sex and sexuality. He currently sits on the Board of The Northwest Institute on Intimacy as a Certified Integrated Intimacy Practitioner, and is a past Board member of the Seattle Counselors Association.

In 1996 he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Sociology from Western Washington University, and in 2003 his Master of Arts in Counseling came from Seattle University.
