My work draws upon methods from a number of therapeutic sources, including psychodynamic, relational, existential, cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, and the creative arts.
In the midst of life’s difficult questions and moments, I strive to create a safe and trust-filled therapeutic space where individuals can talk openly about their concerns and explore what is most important to them. I believe that every individual has the strength, expertise, and wisdom to live a life that is in sync with their values, and I’m passionate about supporting individuals as they work toward healing, growing, and learning more about themselves. My therapeutic framework is founded on an integrative and relationship-focused approach.

I have 3 decades of experience counseling individuals, couples, & families using Jungian, psychodynamic, & Family Systems models.
Feeling overwhelmed? Struggling with transition, trauma, or loss? Longing for a life that fits with who you truly are inside? Depression, grief, relationship issues, trauma, & anxiety can leave you exhausted, stuck in painful old patterns. But they can also be opportunities for growth. Therapy is a process of "tending the soul," as well as addressing life's problems. I especially like working with women in midlife. To learn more about finding balance in middle age, check out the "Recent Articles" section on my website: www.soulcarepsychotherapy.com/

Using the psychodynamic therapy model to gain insight, we will develop confidence in your abilities to coach yourself when things get challenging.
You need to feel like you can be fully yourself. To be able to set boundaries, thrive, and be healthy in your relationships. Therapy is for someone like you - a regular person, struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, bipolar disorder... who sometimes doesn’t like how you feel about yourself or your relationships. Given the social pressures and systemic influences in your life, these feelings become more complex and painful with time. You don’t need someone to solve everything, fix you, or expect you to be happy, but you long to be authentic and vulnerable with yourself and for others to feel they can be the same with you.

You're someone who is looking to find just the right fit in a counselor. Maybe you are experiencing grief, or having difficulty adjusting to life changes. Perhaps you have a general sense of dissatisfaction with life, or have specific things you want to work through. Or, maybe you're feeling trapped by anxiety, or past trauma, and you want to feel a sense of hope; to be seen, heard, and understood. There is no "one-size-fits-all" approach to therapy, and the things you may want to work on are important and unique.

A favorite quote of mine is "A person's a person, no matter how small" - Dr. Suess. What I take from this is to treat others with humanity and respect, despite age, life difficulties or choices made. I predominantly work with children, adolescents, families and young adults who present with a variety of presenting difficulties. I do enjoy working with adults and couples as well. I have vast experience in working with all populations and am a safe place for all. I approach therapy from a systems perspective, rooted in attachment theory. I believe we are developed out of our experiences and interactions with those in our lives.

Life is hard; no one said it would be easy. Nothing that has value comes easily. It seems the things that can bring us lasting joy are the things we have to work to achieve. We are all unique in history. Where we come from, which family, which culture, impacted who we are and who we will or have become. Yet, all of us are the same in that we need human interaction. We come into this world seeking others, touch, interaction.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Puyallup, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
