My approach to counseling is friendly, open and gentle. Together we will explore and discover beliefs and emotions that are keeping you stuck, anxious, sad, angry or fearful. Awareness arising from this journey begins a natural internal re-modeling process that results in a sense of connection with your true Self and your own inner wisdom. Space emerges for automatic reactions to become choiceful responses. Overwhelming emotions become manageable and even sources of wisdom. Previously unknown options become apparent, allowing for more focus, clarity and effectiveness in all realms of your life: (physical, emotional mental and spiritual).

I enjoy working with people who are wanting to address barriers to their sexual health and are seeking to have fantastic sex lives. The relationships that I work best with have already done work to improve their skills, have a strong commitment to each other, and are willing show-up and do the difficult work of addressing outdated and harmful views of sexuality. I am happy to work with individuals, couples, and different and varying relationship designs and configurations.

This being human thing is tricky, isn’t it? At times we all feel a bit lost and alone, overwhelmed, regretful of the past, or fearful of the future. Perhaps you see yourself trying to do everything “right” in order to get to where you want to be or think you’re supposed to be, only to find yourself not making much progress or getting stuck in the same place? Or maybe at this point you’re not even sure anymore what the “right” thing is or where to go from here? I too have experienced this place of frustration. Change is possible and can bring more clarity, healing, connection, strength, calm, and joy!

I believe relationships play a critical role in the way we operate throughout our daily lives. We look to our partner(s) for support, validation, encouragement, and empathy. The security in knowing our needs can and will be met foster a bond and attachment that is nurtured and secure. When couples can concede to such emotional engagements, secure bonding can evolve thus, establishing a bond that contributes to overall well-being and quality of life.

Are you an intelligent, driven, passionate person who is living a double life? You appear unflappable and levelheaded, but inside, you feel anxious, exhausted, and unsatisfied. These feelings are confusing because you have many of the things you wanted. You’ve had success in your personal life, your career, or as a parent, but everything feels SO HARD. You might also be wondering if there’s something wrong with you. Or maybe it makes total sense that you’d feel this way. Some events from your past are emerging. You suspect trauma and emotional wounds are at the root. But you don’t know how to deal with it.

I believe that the relationship to our self is the most important relationship that we will ever have. A bond with a therapist who witnesses and understands us in a nonjudgmental way can be a wonderful ally in improving that relationship and making positive changes in our lives. Trauma, attachment issues, toxic families of origin, oppression, grief, and ancestral/family patterns are just some just some examples that can cause suffering that motivates someone to start therapy. I have experience working with clients with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD, and other mood disorders that make it difficult to function in life.

Together we will explore the ways that therapy can assist you towards achieving your personal goals for wellbeing. Healing and transformation is a lifestyle and we all require assistance in cultivating a life that will help us navigate unavoidable difficulties. Isolation works against these efforts which is why seeking therapy is truly one of the best things you can offer yourself.

Congratulations! You have taken the first step toward healing by seeking help. It is important that the relationship between you and your therapist is a good fit, based on mutual respect and trust. I use a strength-based and practical approach. I have a sense of humor which seems to help clients feel more comfortable. Therapy's primary focus is on the present with an understanding of the effects of past events on current behaviors and the need to process unresolved issues. "The turmoil of the past is never wholly forgotten, unresolved it seeps through even the strongest foundation."

Are you traveling full speed on a path that no longer has a meaningful destination? Is it hard to identify needs or set boundaries because you've learned it's safer not to take up space? Or maybe you've built a wall around your true self because you didn't fit the mold you were given? Firstly, know that these are all indicators that you're resilient and adaptable. You may have faced significant challenges or traumas and found a way to move forward even with unmet needs.This is a skill of survival; however, it's not adequate when navigating the full complexity of life. For that, you will also need compassion, connection, and purpose.

I see the fact that you are here looking for a therapist as immensely brave. I honor your courage. I genuinely love people. My personal experiences with childhood trauma, family relationships, religion, and the sciences have granted me opportunities to empathize with and understand a diverse range of emotional, mental, and relational issues and to apply effective treatment methods for my clients. I am aware that my privilege and life opportunities require me to be intentional about providing a safe space for my clients, especially those who have experienced marginalization and societal oppression and I consistently strive to do so.

What type of Steilacoom 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 Steilacoom?
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.
