I utilize acceptance and mindfulness-based approaches to help you change the way you respond to your emotions, your body, and your circumstances.
I specialize in therapy for people navigating health, disease, and their relationship with their bodies. I help people who have life-altering medical conditions and their caregivers. I also work with people with body insecurity/body image challenges who want a more positive, accepting, and compassionate relationship with their bodies. If you're tired of being at war with your body, I want to help you end the battle. It's time to take your power back.

Oftentimes we seek out therapy because components in our lives are causing us significant distress and disrupt our ability to function effectively and feel happiness. I ask clients who come into therapy to bring with them an open attitude, a willingness to explore their life perspectives and their relationships with others, that they may experience true change and healing. This journey towards emotional maturity often involves a certain amount of discomfort and pain before the healing and change can occur. I provide a warm, trusting, safe space to assist people so that they may continue that journey.

Sometimes the world feels like it’s seriously doomed. Every day there is a new threat to humanity. At least that’s what the 24/7 news cycle wants us to believe. You want to be informed but your mind is constantly playing out worst-case scenarios on repeat. The onslaught of information available has you worried about your health, the economy, greenhouse gases - on & on it goes. You are so overwhelmed you drown your anxieties in endless YouTube clips or scrolling through social media. But after a while, that feels like crap too. Because the truth is, social interactions terrify you & you’d rather just avoid people in general.

Have you been impacted by problematic relationships, infidelity, or sex addiction? You might feel lost, betrayed, and alone. Do you ask yourself, "How do I keep ending up in these relationships?". Are you afraid to be alone even when your partner is clearly unhealthy? Core beliefs are the foundation of our being but when they cause us pain, embarrassment, and shame we can become depressed, anxious, fake, and withdrawn. Do you compare yourself to others (I call this Comparanoia)? Do you tell yourself “I am stupid”, “I am worthless”, or “I am not good enough”? If so, then your core beliefs may be contributing to your pain today.

At times, we may find ourselves stuck in painful experiences that we've tried to push away or do our very best to ignore. That 'stuckness' can leave us feeling defeated as those painful thoughts, feelings, and behaviors stubbornly hang around or ricochet back, knocking the wind out of us. If this resonates with you, it’s okay to ask for help and support. Therapy can offer opportunities for new insights and healing. Movement towards and (re)discovery of the things you care about is possible and you don't have to do it alone.

It feels like others don't see or trust the challenges you face and the effort you actually put in to just get by.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Gig Harbor or for a Gig Harbor ACT therapist these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counselors.
