If you have ever dealt with anxiety, panic attacks, or fears of letting others down you have been fighting a battle that you don't need to continue to fight. We help individuals control their anxiety by teaching them techniques and tools that will allow them to regain control over their emotions. These are the same skills that professional athletes use to deal with the anxiety and the enormous amounts of pressure they deal with on a daily basis.

I approach therapy from a trauma-focused, multicultural perspective. I strive to promote healing from traumatic experiences. I do this by collaborating with clients because I believe they are the true experts in themselves. My treatment approach is eclectic in nature as I utilize methods from multiple treatment modalities including CBT, DBT, person-centered and brief, solutions-focused therapy. Please send all appointment requests via email. Find me at: helloalma.com/providers/taryn-hodison

It's hard to find a therapist. Especially when you're not feeling your best. I applaud you for getting this far. Now it's time to invest in your relationship with yourself. I know what it’s like to feel alone with your problems. Maybe you have no one to talk to. Or maybe you feel bad making your friends, your family, or your partner listen to your problems again. I know what that feels like, and I’m here. I’m ready to listen. It’s time to let go of anxiety, sadness, frustration, anger, and shame. I want to process these things with you. You don’t have to go through this alone anymore.

Coming to therapy can be scary! Do you worry that your therapist won’t “get it” or will tell you how to live your life? I understand that it can be hard to ask for help, and that it takes a brave person to decide to make changes in their life. I believe therapy should be a time where you feel comfortable and safe to be your true self! I am a strengths-focused therapist who won’t judge you, tell you what to do, or give you advice you didn’t ask for. You are the expert in your life, and your problems aren't too much- my job is to help you understand yourself better, help you function in your daily life, and help you find healing.

Stuck. Trapped. Controlling. Anxious. Over it. Apathetic. Do you find yourself resonating with these words? Maybe you feel yourself enraged at little things your partner or kids do, and then hating yourself after you snap. Perhaps you used to get excited about a weekend brunch, meeting a friend for a coffee, or strolling Target alone - but now you only feel apathetic and empty. What if you could find your spark again? Does that sound possible? Maybe going back to where you used to be isn’t even your goal: maybe your goal is the ability to be present, without nagging anxieties and crippling depression. Either way, therapy can help.

I am not the type of therapist who will just nod along and tell you to go to the gym. Sure, exercise is good, but I want to go deeper than that. Does life always feel chaotic and overwhelming? Do you have questions and uncertainties about your relationships? Maybe you deal with thoughts that you’d rather just not wake up tomorrow. You shouldn’t have to feel that way. You can create a life and relationships that make you feel happy and healthy. Let’s get to work.

We are all just walking each other home. While I bring a deep love for/nerd out about how we become us, you know you best. You've got the map and say where to go — I empower you to navigate, process, unpack and heal. We will work to make connections, identify patterns/themes and reframe old stories that no longer serve you. I am also trained in EMDR & approach therapy through a trauma-informed, systemic, anti-oppression lens, practicing cultural humility. I am a visionary curator of transformative experiences. If you have tried therapy before and are still struggling and/or are ready to change your trajectory, call me.

There may be parts of you that are nervous to start therapy. That is so normal. My goal is to help you connect with your authentic self, identify your triggers, understand your boundaries, learn ways to regulate, and how to adequately care for yourself so you can live life with self-compassion and acceptance. I see individuals struggling with substance use, relationships, life transitions, anxiety, and depression. Working together means that we celebrate the small wins, take one moment at a time, and gain empowerment to do hard things. I'm committed to meeting you in this moment and finding the best course of action for therapy.

It’s okay to say, "I'm not okay." If trying to return to “normal life” post pandemic is harder than you thought & you’re sad or anxious and not sure why- you are not alone. Life is messy but good therapy ends. Maybe your life looks nothing like it did two years ago & you’re reeling and only now catching your breath and struggling to breathe. Maybe your life looks the same and you feel different but you’re stuck, overwhelmed and don’t know what to do next. What we allow will continue & lasting change requires work. Often starting the work & reaching out is a daunting task but when we avoid our stories, that's when they define us.

The four pillars of my practice are self-care wellness, building self-love, self-confidence, and self-esteem. Your happiness and mental wellness are the cornerstones of healthy relationships with yourself and others. We all have the insight to resolve any barriers in life. Identifying and developing self-empowerment and having the ability to implement and reinforce personal boundaries provide the vehicle to support one to become aware of what is needed to overcome these obstacles.

On the outside it seems like you have it all together, but inside it feels like you are falling apart. You’re tired of lacking confidence in yourself and feeling alone in your struggles. You feel guilty about the frustration and overwhelm you feel each day. It’s like you’re the one carrying all the weight. You’ve worked hard for success, but you aren't living the authentic life you hoped for, and you’ve basically resigned yourself to the idea that you may never find the fulfillment in relationships that you’ve found in your career.
