My background is in Psychodynamic and Attachment theory but I have recognized the value of many evidence based approaches in addressing trauma, anxiety and depression.
Everyone has a unique story to tell. Sometimes the story is full of joy and laughter and sometimes it has challenges and heartbreak. For most of us, it falls somewhere in between. By taking the time to share and understand your story, you are given the opportunity to understand how your past shapes your current existence and how past relationships inevitably impact current ones. By understanding and owning your story, you give yourself the opportunity to choose how you want to go forward. One's past does not have to define one's future.

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.

Maybe you've been here before, clicked out of the tab, only to search again later. It is daunting scrolling through the pictures and trying to find the right face. You know...the one with whom you can share your story. The story lurking back in the corner of your mind that you might not feel ready to face. We all have a story to tell. Getting to know our own stories can be scary, terrifying even. It can be painful. However, finding the right person to help you learn about yourself is a task totally worth hanging in there—for a few more clicks, some e-mails, maybe some phone calls.

Navigating unexpected situations or traumas, dealing with anxiety/depression can overwhelm our sense of being present in the moment and we may feel trapped inside our feelings. Sometimes difficulties have been present since childhood, left unattended or pushed down repeatedly over the years. Some clients come to counseling seeking ways to deal with a specific trauma, domestic violence, grief, loss, anger, or other distressing emotions, leaving someone feeling isolated, stuck, and without resources. Taking the next step, asking for help inside of counseling, brings you closer to the destination of recovery.

At the core of my treatment philosophy is the belief that families heal when movement occurs and people begin to step out of their comfort zones to unlock their potential and capacity for growth. Often there is underlying pain and/or trauma that needs to be addressed in order for the system to recover and break the cycle. Whether the results of the family dysfunction is abuse, addiction, estrangement, divorce, suicide, broken communication paths, or some other behavior, treatment can provide relief.

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.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Gig Harbor, 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.
