I use a collaborative and client-led approach, called Internal Family Systems , in which clients develop a deeper acceptance for who they are and gain freedom from painful experiences from their past.
My style of therapy is warm, accepting, and compassionate. After having trained extensively and been witness to countless stories of transformation, I can say with certainty that healing is absolutely possible. This is an invitation to break free from painful experiences, beliefs and thought patterns that keep you from living the life you want, and leave you feeling hopeless or weary. I am guided by the belief that what you need to heal is already within you. Together, we will discover your internal source of strength and wisdom.

My training is in Mindfulness, Somatic Experiencing, Internal Family Systems , Posttraumatic-Growth, Jungian Dream Analysis, Spiritual Wisdom & Integration, and Cognitive Behavioral Psychology.
Suffering is unavoidable. But how we process our experiences is the difference between integrated healing and prolonging our aches. Whether you are experiencing anxiety, depression, loss, or relationship disturbances, most of us are also experiencing an activation of our nervous system that keeps us hypervigilant and unable to truly integrate healing into our bodies. Therapy is a path to process and heal the challenges in our lives so that we can tap into our own intuitive wisdom, learn to resettle our nervous systems, and access meaningful lives that bring us joy.

I also use CBT and IFS to address past trauma with informed care.
I believe we are all worthy and deserving of love and understanding ourselves and those we love can be one of life's biggest challenges and one of life's biggest rewards. It is my honor, as a therapist to create a warm, nonjudgmental, and supportive space where clients can feel seen and heard within their own unique circumstances. We will explore unseen messages and hidden feelings to identify and gently challenge patterns and protective habits that are no longer effective or helpful. I treasure working with couples and individuals as they reclaim themselves, find clarity, and gain more meaning to their lives & their relationships.

We all encounter situations that feel overwhelming and test our coping abilities. I see therapy as a collaborative process that will help you navigate the challenges and transitions that life presents. I offer a safe, supportive environment to talk about issues that can be difficult to discuss elsewhere. Together we will explore how certain thoughts, behavior patterns, and past experiences might be contributing to your difficulties. We will identify your strengths and figure out effective coping strategies to create positive changes in your life. I work with adults, adolescents, children, and couples.

I believe the purpose of therapy is to support people in gaining personal insight, understanding of others perspectives, and integrating this information while planning new and improved responses and courses of action. As we are able to discover and express our hidden emotions and create new relational responses we then have the potential to change a distressed and rigid relationship into a more secure, safe and satisfying one. My commitment is to devote my full attention to you during our time together and to work with you as supportively, competently, responsibly, and professionally as I am able.

I am great at helping people work through stress, depression, conflict in relationships and in dealing with issues like addiction, identity, trauma, and anger management. I am an entrepreneur, craftsman, part time stay at home dad and outdoorsman. People feel comfortable working with me because I believe in the good in them and because my experience working outside of therapy helps me to understand a wide range of individuals and families.

Life is overwhelming and difficult to manage at times; whether it's the build up of day to day stressors or a crisis. We all have challenges we struggle to overcome and we can get stuck in unhelpful thoughts or behaviors. Even in the best of circumstances committing to change is difficult. Change can feel frightening even when it creates new opportunities to live a fuller, richer, more rewarding life. If you are struggling with life’s challenges and want to reduce negative thinking and emotions that lead to unhelpful coping responses; I am here to help.

I am currently offering both Telehealth and in-person sessions. I work specifically with clients who have a desire to learn more about themselves, and to increase their experience of vulnerability. While employing a holistic mind, body and spirit perspective, my approach validates each client as having the answers and abilities within themselves to become the best person they can be.

Feeling stuck, anxious, or overwhelmed? You work hard to be competent on the outside, maintaining control, holding your life together. Yet you know something is off on the inside. You want to be free. Free from the worry, anxiety and the patterns you keep finding yourself living over and over. You don't need to live your life this way any longer. Is this type of freedom even possible? Yes. Yes it is. You do not have to walk this path alone any longer. You have tried everything you can think of to help you sleep, help you cope, stop the flashbacks. Some of your strategies worked, but they are not enough.

What type of Gig Harbor mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
