If you have issues related to depression , low self-esteem, anxiety, anger, relationships, separation or loneliness, we will forge a road for healing and happiness.
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.

Sometimes personal tragedy strikes and you need to talk. Often systemic oppression and microaggressions can cause depression , anxiety and PTSD. I believe that hope is an endurant quality that gets us through the hardest parts of our life. Counseling is about restoring hope and advocacy within the context of an apathetic society. I teach self advocacy skills and boundary setting. My overall approach is compassion focused. I believe that clients know what is in their best interest and I hope to assist you in reaching your goals.

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.

I have experience with many areas including trauma work, symptoms of anxiety and depression , relational conflict and more.
Are you struggling with daily tasks? Do you want more out of your relationships? Does it feel as though your heart is heavy? Struggles like this can require a helping hand and therapy can be the step you need. Therapy has the potential to empower and guide growth to overcome the challenges that life brings. It has the ability to bridge tough conversations, acknowledge the impact that the greater society has on us and unpack the emotions that feel unexplainable. Soon that checklist can feel smaller, relationships feel more fulfilling and that weight a bit lighter.

*****I am not accepting new patients at this time 3/15/2022**** It takes a special kind of courage to ask for help. Whether we have had a hardship sneak up on us, or been wrestling with it for a lifetime, expressing out loud a need for assistance is an act of bravery. I have been working as mental health counselor and psychotherapist since 2014, and in that time I’ve been honored to witness these acts of bravery from adolescents, adults of all ages, and families. I believe that our experiences matter and are worth talking about.

Whereas I believe that depression , sadness, and anxiety are a natural part of life, I do not think they should come saddled with shame and guilt.
Do you feel disconnected sometimes? Maybe anxiety, maybe sadness, maybe just a feeling of un-ease?

I have worked with adolescents and adults for almost 15 years and have had the privilege of witnessing individuals overcome trauma, anxiety, and depression , among other issues and embrace a future they weren't sure was possible.
Everyone has a unique story to tell. Sometimes the story is full of joy and laughter and sometimes it has challenges and heartbreak. For most of us, it falls somewhere in between. By taking the time to share and understand your story, you are given the opportunity to understand how your past shapes your current existence and how past relationships inevitably impact current ones. By understanding and owning your story, you give yourself the opportunity to choose how you want to go forward. One's past does not have to define one's future.

My practice areas include: individual, couple and relationship counseling, depression , anxiety, early life abuse and neglect, trauma/PTSD, self-esteem, family issues and spiritual exploration.
Sometimes in life, we can feel lost, stuck or even desperate. We do the same things over and over again without finding any solutions to our problems. Life often becomes painful when our past experiences have no words to describe them or clarity to bring them to understanding. Using a variety of approaches my clients and I explore their current pain and concerns, while considering the picture of their past experience. With support and compassion we map out a plan to discover ways to become unstuck and move in new directions.

If you're reading this, you're thinking about how a regular video session with a therapist could help make your life better during these difficult times. I love working with teens and adults living with anxiety, depression , OCD, and Hoarding Disorder to improve their lives. I'm passionate about coaching clients on how to break the negative cycles that are causing them pain. My clients tell me this helps them decrease stress and reconnect with the people in their lives. As a parent myself, I take joy in working with my teenage clients. Sometimes I involve parents or guardians, sometimes the work is one on one.

When our old methods of coping with life's difficulties no longer work, we can find ourselves stuck - in depression , with anxiety, feeling worthless, maybe afraid to even reach out for help. Talking with someone who can assist you in discovering what went wrong and how to heal from it could be invaluable. Each person is unique and has a story to tell. I'll want to hear your story. I strive to provide everyone with a non-judgmental, empathic atmosphere in which you can feel safe to express any experience however painful or shameful it may feel.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Tacoma. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
