Welcome

Vision Point Associates was created in 1995 by Renie Hope, MA, LMHC, and Carol Summers, MS, LMFT. They are experienced psychotherapists and educators who began working with the Enneagram in the early 1980’s. The Enneagram is a powerful tool for understanding yourself and others. It describes nine distinct points of view and their interrelationships, which are taught in our introductory courses: The Enneagram for Love, Work and Family Life and Using the Enneagram in Clinical Practice.

Studying the Enneagram will help you develop awareness of your own point of view and help you understand how it differs from the others. Recognizing this will help you create more satisfying love, work and personal relationships. The Enneagram also supports in-depth clinical understanding of our clients so we can quickly craft interventions that are most likely to be effective for them.

Carol Ruth retired from Vision Point in 2013.  She maintains a private practice with couples and teaches occasional advanced Enneagram workshops.  Carol Ruth can be reached at seasummers@gmail.com or visit her website at www.summerscounseling.com.

Debra Janison joined Vision Point in the fall of 2013.  Debra is the founder of Enneagram Olympia.  She is a certified teacher of the Enneagram in the Narrative Tradition and a spiritual director in private practice.  In addition to her work with Vision Point, she leads introductory and advanced workshops on the Enneagram in Olympia and throughout Puget Sound.

Renie Hope leads three ongoing consultation groups that help clinicians draw on the power of the Enneagram in their work with individuals, couples and families. 

 Clinicians who complete Using the Enneagram in Clinical Practice earn 23 CEUs, and earn 25 CEU’s per consultation cycle.  Renie is also a certified teacher of the Diamond Approach and teaches advanced Enneagram workshops that emphasize the spiritual dimensions.
