My focus is with adults who are experiencing anxiety, depression, PTSD symptoms and issues related to trauma and abuse.
I work with people who have been deeply hurt and heartbroken. I work with those who have suffered loss and abandonment. I work with those who have learned to survive in the best ways they know how, but may be coming to a place where these survival skills just don't seem to be working anymore. I offer a safe space for you to begin where you are; even if you don't quite know exactly what it is that you need, we can explore that together.

9/12/22: Accepting new clients. I help survivors of trauma and difficult childhoods reclaim the peaceful, joyous life they deserve. Survivors can be stuck in states of anxiety, depression or shame, have unusual medical issues, and may not even remember what happened. Focus issues, low self-esteem and problems trusting are also common. If this is you, please know we can work towards freeing you from the invisible grip of the past. We'll first establish a safe, open relationship and help you reconnect to the peace and strength in your body. At your own pace, we'll heal trauma and relational wounds using body-focused talk therapy.

My areas of expertise include addiction and codependency recovery, relationship issues (for both individuals and couples), life transitions, and trauma resolution.
I believe that almost all change that occurs in therapy comes from forming a safe therapeutic relationship, and in the context of that relationship increasing your awareness of self, challenging your old beliefs, establishing appropriate boundaries in relationships with others, and experiencing and letting go of old pain. My task is to support you in that process. I tend to be active in therapy. I ask questions, offer observations, and look for patterns in the client's life. However, I believe the client is the final expert on themselves, and I trust in their unique healing process.

Feelings of despair, anxiety, rage, confusion, hopelessness, and depression are normal responses to a broken world. This brokenness manifests as oppression, inequality, trauma , destruction, and violence. Sometimes it can seem impossible to feel whole given the state of things. And yet, it is my deeply held belief that we can heal both individually and collectively, to find ourselves whole again, belonging.

Since 2004, I have been providing therapeutic support to those in the wake of trauma , loss and grief.
After a sudden, traumatic death such as through suicide, death due to drug use, homicide or COVID, those bereaving are often left with both the heavy burden of grief, and images that may feel haunting and overwhelming. Other feelings, such as guilt, anger, and profound sorrow accompany other distressing experiences, including, feeling alone, increased agitation, depression and anxiety. When put together, these feelings can feel unbearable to hold alone.

I believe that often, our deepest experiences of harm and trauma take place within relationships, and the ways that others relate to us has an enormous impact on the ways we learn to relate to ourselves. My work with clients often centers around exploring and integrating past experiences of harm, and through this, inviting clients to new ways of relating to themselves in the present. I am passionate about helping clients grow in self-awareness, courage, and self-compassion.

I work with adults who have experienced trauma , anxiety, mood disorders, life transitions, relationship stressors, grief and loss, among other challenges in a geek and LGBTQ+ friendly environment.
As a trauma therapist, I believe that personal growth and transformation is vital to the human experience, and that sometimes we need support through this process. Therapy is embarking on a journey, and you are the hero of your story. In meeting with you where you are at in your journey, I will help you to develop your own set of skills to help you through your daily experiences. I also encourage approaching challenges with vulnerability and self-compassion and will assist in practicing these areas in our sessions. Even though painful experiences are inevitable, I believe that suffering does not have to hold us back from living.

I am a licensed psychologist who provides telehealth services to California, Washington State, and PSYPACT state residents. While I've spent much of my specialist practice at the intersection of substance use, PTSD , and co-occurring disorders in adults (18+), my generalist training has also prepared me to support those experiencing anxiety, depression, perfectionism, boundary issues, deep wisdom experiences of grief and relational transitions, and overworking/burnout related to high-pressure or exploitative work environments. I regularly engage in culturally responsive training to support members of marginalized groups.

I particularly enjoy working with individuals in long-term treatment related to transdiagnostic issues: relationship difficulties (attachment, conflict, divorce), trauma , anti-oppression, identity development and intersection, and art and creativity.
You hope to ease your distress and experience healing, and ultimately, to enjoy satisfying, fulfilling relationships with others and with yourself. You seek the magic that comes from looking within and cultivating a relationship with your own rich inner world- a brave and vulnerable first step to finding wholeness, relief, and self-awareness. Depth psychotherapy is the process of turning inward and examining unconscious aspects of the self that have influenced you outside of your awareness, a practice that not only alleviates symptoms and suffering, but transforms unhealthy coping behaviors and problematic relationship patterns.

My method of working is guided by developmental and attachment theory, and I offer traditional CBT and solution-focused talk therapy as well as trauma -responsive and body-integrative approaches including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), mindfulness, and sex therapy.
It’s hard to be a person. Even when life is at its most joyful, our relationships, our pasts, and the constant presence of change can be overwhelming, confusing, or defeating. I’m here to help with that. Therapy is my second career. I chose this work because I believe everybody deserves nonjudgmental support, whether they are in crisis, preparing for change, or simply stuck. I have seen what can happen when pain has no witness. I have also experienced the transformations that can take place when hurt and struggle are seen, heard, and met with compassion, understanding, and perspective.

He has extensive experience treating anxiety and depression, trauma , impulse-control disorders, individuals in life transitions, with relationship or sexual issues, and sport performance issues.
Tyson is a tele-health therapist who is passionate about working with people who find themselves in a place where they have suffered enough and desire true change. Therapy is a process that reveals the bright light within every person that is so often obstructed by pain and egoic defenses. He believes in the healing power of relationships that enable us to feel seen, soothed, loved and safe and that the extent to which a person has not experienced this, or may have experienced just the opposite, can sometimes reveal the need to grieve loss. On the other side of this grief is joy, peace and ultimately, real freedom.

I work with individuals struggling with anxiety, stress, grief/loss, loneliness, relationships, trauma , body image, among others.
Sometimes life is about showing up and trying, even in the places where we struggle the most. Some of our work may be about your current life and the various problems or stressors that are troubling you. We will work together to explore why these troubles have presented themselves and find a way through them. Some of our work may also be about your formative years of childhood; love and how you have or have not been loved by the most influential people in your life (including yourself); how various thoughts/behaviors may be benefiting or hindering your life or finding your voice and having the ability to use it strongly but kindly.
