I am an IFS -trained and Hakomi Certified therapist offering experiential psychotherapy.
I believe you are beautiful and worthy, and that your life can reflect great love and joy. I understand how far-fetched this can seem if you are suffering. If you hate parts of yourself, are grappling with depression, anxiety, or trauma symptoms, or if your relationships cause distress, it can seem as if the problem is *you*. You may feel like something is wrong with you, that you are unlovable, unworthy or broken. You might be here looking for someone to fix you, but I don't believe you need fixing. I believe you are enough. I also believe that if you're willing to do some hard work, you can come to believe it too.

In my work as a therapist, I rely on: compassion, creativity, curiosity, honesty, patience, kindness, and humor. I am fond of working with Internal Family Systems , Narrative Therapy, and with whatever it was Carl Whitaker was up to. I consider my practice to be an invitation to work with people of all: ages, backgrounds, identities and expressions, which in part means I work with kids and teens. My pronouns are typically he/him.

I have a strong background, Internal Family Systems Certified, EMDR and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.
I believe in empowering people to reach their full potential by providing services that are strengths-based, practical, holistic, and focused on promoting long lasting change. I work using a style of fostering trust and authenticity,starting where people want and ending when people feel their life and issues have changed and their happiness enhanced. I believe the relationship in counseling is the core issue in treatment. This is particularly important in working with children and adolescents where no work could be done without building a warm, honest, and caring connection. I believe healing comes through the mind, body, spirit connection.

I use an integrative approach stemming from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Attachment Theory, Family Systems Theory and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
I work with children, teens, and adults moving through transitionary periods in life. This may look many different ways ranging from struggling to get through the day to feeling like your emotions are too much. My work focuses on creating a safe space in which individuals feel comfortable processing difficult emotions and developing coping skills to help navigate this hectic world we are living in. I believe in taking a person-centered collaborative approach to help clients reach their goals.

Hi. I am a licensed mental health counselor who specializes in adults who experienced early childhood trauma. I believe most humans are fully capable of creating a life they desire if they can return to who they are in the core, wild, soul. I utilize evidence based practices such as EMDR, mindfulness, CBT, DBT, IFS , and ACT in a multiprong approach to address past and present issues, or stuck points, that are repeating unwanted patterns in your daily life. I believe that you are the expert on you and that my job is to provide you with tools and space to practice skills. We're all just humans walking each other walking home.

I utilize relational and feminist approaches, am EMDR trained, and use attachment theory, IFS , DBT skills, and MBCT.
Most of us carry around stories about who we are and who we should be without really knowing how we got them or if we want to keep them. Therapy is a place to gently explore and unpack these narratives. My clients want to like and understand themselves more, have better relationships, and feel more hope and possibility in their lives. They are determined and brave, but often have been trying things that aren't working or leave them more stuck. I believe every person has an innate capacity to heal, but sometimes trauma and life experiences can block those pathways and make life feel narrow and small.

One of the biggest challenges is finding the “right” therapist in a sea with many options and approaches. Building a treatment relationship of connection, trust and understanding between each client and myself is of the utmost importance. I am a seasoned psychologist who is committed to being a guide for my clients as they move through the struggles, fears, anxieties and pain that have held them back in their life and their relationships. Over the last two years I have started training in IFS (Internal Family Systems ) Therapy. This has been a game changer for me and my clients in overcoming long standing issues.

MOVE FROM SUFFERING TO SERENE.....Whether you are distressed about career or depressed/anxious about life, I am here to help. I am a career specialist and family counselor, with a friendly, calm, open style. I converse back and forth with clients, often offering them feedback. Also, I frequently mention near-universals, ways in which other people might react to situations similar to those the client is experiencing. Clients frequently give me feedback that they feel comfortable, reassured, and understood when we meet and that they can talk easily with me. I have several special interests in my practice. They are the following:

Resources I utilize include Somatics, Attachment Theory, Internal Family Systems , and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy.
Not currently accepting new clients. I serve individuals, couples, and families who are part of the LGBTQIA+ and poly/ethical non-monogamy communities. Living in a society that prioritizes profit over people and systematically privileges & oppresses based on identity takes a large toll. I believe therapy is a resource to help us navigate living in this world and be intentional about how we show up in it. My approach is to meet people where they are at and support them in exploring what tools, resources, and practices can best aid them in living into their authentic selves. I would be honored to be alongside you on your journey.

My clients seek a therapist who is anti-racist, body-positive, kink and identity-affirming. I specialize in working with survivors of childhood abuse, folks with complex trauma, and queer & trans folks. Often the work is around self-awareness, life patterns, identity development, stress responses, self-image, trauma release and around trans identity. I work primarily within the IFS model of therapy, incorporating attachment, psychodynamic and DBT therapies where approproate. I approach all of the work I do with an anti-pathologizing, harm-reduction and gate-opening lens. I offer Telehealth only, and I do not take insurance.

My therapeutic approach is applied through an anti-oppressive and culturally responsive lens, and my primary modalities include attachment-based therapy, depth psychotherapy, somatic-based therapies, internal family systems , and nature therapy.
If you're considering therapy, you're already taking a brave step toward growth and self-discovery. Some areas of focus in my practice include gender identity exploration, adults with ADHD, processing childhood trauma, healing attachment wounds, and improving relationships. My lived and professional experiences have equipped me to connect with those who share these identities.

My overall approach is collaborative and client-centered, with a commitment to anti-oppression in every facet of my work. I believe, with warm, respectful, authentic support, every person has the ability to identify inner resources and acquire skills that will empower them to find healing and fulfilling relationships to self and others. My style is compassionate and appropriately direct. While I find exploration of the past useful, I prefer to use the 'here-and-now' to realize and effect change.

I am currenty on maternity leave and not seeing clients until June 2023. Healing and caring for ourselves is hard work. Sometimes painful, often fulfilling, occasionally tedious, it is a necessary part of being open to the experiences that life has to offer us. Therapy is one way to find support in healing from trauma, managing our health, and discovering and practicing new ways of caring for ourselves. As Audre Lorde wrote, "Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare." This work is important, both individually and collectively, and I am here to help you with it.

What type of Olympia 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.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Olympia?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
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.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
