If you're searching for a therapist who just sits, nods his head, and asks: "how do you feel about that?" then we would not be a good match. While that question is important, I focus more on listening closely to your stories, engaging in active dialogue with you. Together we form a common relationship to face and overcome your fears and anxieties. I am firmly committed to a collaborative, participatory, and holistic patient/therapist relationship. As partners, we form a trusting bond to explore the problems that interfere with your ability to live a happy and healthy life.

Feeling overwhelmed? Struggling with transition, trauma, or loss? Longing for a life that fits with who you truly are inside? Depression, grief, relationship issues, trauma, & anxiety can leave you exhausted, stuck in painful old patterns. But they can also be opportunities for growth. Therapy is a process of "tending the soul," as well as addressing life's problems. I especially like working with women in midlife.

Is worry ruining your life? Are you and your partner wondering if you should stay together? Often people seek answers through therapy and eventually feel more in control of their lives and experience less stress. If you resist counseling because you are uncomfortable talking about personal problems to someone you don't know, I can make it easier by asking questions and listening carefully to what you say. I want you to feel satisfied with the counseling experience, so I'll work with you to establish your goals. My studio setting is homey and relaxed.

My specialties include neurodivergence (ADHD, learning differences etc.), climate and social-political distress/anxiety or grief, those who work in the education field, mild/moderate anxiety and depression, stress, and those navigating new landscapes and transitions in life.

Whether you’re processing major life events or looking for help coping with day-to-day issues, I’d be honored to join you on your journey. As a trauma survivor myself, I know first-hand the importance of having compassionate, attuned support for engaging in deep work. I offer a somatic approach to trauma healing, incorporating safety, attachment, and nervous system regulation. The current research shows that we can’t “talk our way out” trauma, pain, or discomfort. So I specialize in offering an experiential and relational modality, using the body and nervous system as resources for building resiliency and feeling more at ease.

There are universal experiences that can cause us to question everything we have learned about who we are within ourselves and in connection to others. It’s in these times it can be difficult to meet life on life’s terms; when looking on the bright side, persistence and grit no longer get us through the day. This has been especially true this past couple of years. The most profound change being our ability to be connected to each other and having shared experiences to look forward to. Connection is a foundational requirement for wellbeing and the events in these last few years have impacted every part of our lives.

Hypnosis is not what you think it is. People get the idea from pop culture that hypnosis is something I will put on you or do to you. This isn't true. You’ve already been in a hypnotic state thousands of times throughout your life. Hypnotherapy is simply using this perfectly natural state to create positive change. This typically requires 3 to 5 sessions. As a certified hypnotherapist, I use hypnosis to help clients overcome limiting and negative behaviors, feelings, & chronic pain. The issues you struggle with originate below the conscious level. If they didn’t, you would easily be able to overcome them using your conscious mind.

Are you feeling like you or your loved one should be getting more out of life than you have been? Sometimes we need a compassionate, objective person to help us sort out problems, regain perspective and enjoy life and our relationships again. It is important for you to feel a connection with your therapist and to sense that the therapist has your best interests at heart. I work from a solution-focused, experiential perspective, building on the power of the therapeutic relationship and clients' personal strengths to support lasting change while working with couples, families, individuals, and children.

**I am unable to take new clients at this time** I believe in the inner capacity of all humans to grow and heal in mind, body, and spirit from trauma or challenges faced in life. Due to our interconnected nature, this healing capacity is deepened and broadened through the assistance and support of others. I seek to hold a safe space through the therapeutic relationship to allow for the development of greater understanding and appreciation of self. Through this process, people begin to make meaningful changes and courageously act in ways that reflect their values and wholeness.

Sometimes just talking about sex is an intimidating experience! Especially when it's with a partner, your kid, or a friend. It can be frustrating when sex doesn't go as expected or when we fumble teaching sex ed to our kids. Transitions in relationships like having babies, sexual interest & exploration, or kids going through puberty can prompt the sex conversation even faster. It's never too late to have the conversation & get the education you deserve. If you want to have support in building sexual wellness by improving your sex life and talking about sex confidently- then I might be your fit.

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.
