Is your life in turmoil? Difficult relationships? Feeling depressed, anxious or overwhelmed? Allow me to walk beside you through your current struggles or past difficulties and provide you with tools and insight that can challenge areas blocking you from feeling satisfied with some or all areas of your life. Therapy is a relationship where you can express how you feel openly and honestly without fear. I want to hear your story so I can have a better understanding of your world through your eyes.

Being open and sharing ones experiences can be tremendously daunting and requires feeling supported and safe. I aim to provide a space of non-judgment, compassion, and trust in order to meet my clients where they are. In our sessions you will be able to share your experiences openly without criticism. I will listen, provide feedback, reflections and collaborate with you. My goal is to enable each client to leave therapy with the ability to address the issues that brought them in.

Starting therapy can feel daunting; the thought of talking about something uncomfortable, anxiety about what it will be like, or not knowing where to begin. Maybe you’re considering therapy because you feel burnt out from pressures to do it all and want to find more meaning. Or desire more self understanding and to explore how past experiences influence you. Maybe you want to develop communication skills to feel more content in relationships. Or don’t want to worry so much about being liked. Maybe it's a little bit of many things... These are just some of the life challenges I love to support as a therapist.

Life can be rewarding, fulfilling and exciting and it can also be challenging, lonely and hard. I am here to help you figure our your path to being your absolute best. I am guessing that you want to stop the worry, the overwhelm, and the noise so that you can get back to feeling better, more like yourself. Maybe the isolation and sadness have been hanging around too long? Let's work together to find another way.

From the outside it seems like you have it all together, so why aren't you content? Maybe it's work, your relationships, or something else you can't quite put your finger on. Maybe you're struggling with feelings of sadness, unfulfillment, or pain. Maybe you find it difficult to relax, be present, and are constantly looking forward to when you'll finally be happy. Whatever it is, it doesn't feel good, and it definitely doesn't have to be this way. In therapy, I will work to build a collaborative relationship where we can explore these feelings together, and help you to tap into a life that holds more meaning, ease, and fulfilment.

At some point in life, we all come to a fork in the road where we feel forced to make a choice between carrying on the same way or taking the risk of travelling down a different path that is full of new challenges but leads us to a much more beautiful destination. If you are at this point in your life, you may feel like something has to change because you can’t continue with the way things are. My hope is for you to realize change is possible and you no longer need to face life challenges alone.

What type of Tacoma 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Tacoma?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
