My 30 years of service to others draws from an eclectic and wide range of knowledge and skills spanning client centered, Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioral, Acceptance/Commitment and Schema Therapies aimed at building insight and turning it into action.
Where is the real you? Where is the formerly highly motivated, energetic and adventurous version of you that you recognize as your best self? Well, amidst global health scares, social unrest, isolation and insecurities at seemingly every turn, it can seem your needs for power, freedom, fun, love and belonging have been all but eradicated? For you, the committed adult who is being plagued by the gnawing feeling that you are not living the life you should be, I am passionately committed to helping with issues of loss, anxiety, depression, addiction and relationship problems. These problems need not keep you from greater fulfillment.

As a clinician, I believe therapy looks different for everyone and there is no 'one-size fits most' approach. Therapy should be client-centered, strengths-based, trauma-informed, and focused on what you hope to get out each session. I believe in meeting my clients where they are and develop an individualized treatment plan with each client. In sessions, I utilize a variety of interventions, including evidence based approaches, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy ( DBT ).

Now accepting new clients! My theoretical approach is one of self-awareness. Having a healthy relationship with you in order to have healthy relationships with others. The modalities I use the most are CBT, DBT , and ACT. In these we learn how to communicate more effectively, detach from negativity, embrace positivity and live an intentional life. We address trauma, boundaries, emotional self-management, and how to have relationships that work. LGBTQA+ friendly. As a certified domestic violence, and substance abuse clinician, I am well versed in trauma informed care and systems needs.

I take a creative, client-centered approach to therapy, utilizing narrative therapy, EMDR, IFS, CBT, and DBT to help clients with symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, and relationship issues.
ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS Do you have a sense that you have no control over your life, thoughts, or feelings, causing you NOT to be an active participant in your own life? Do these feelings cause you to feel that you are drifting through life, becoming depressed and anxious? My goal is to offer a safe, supportive space, to walk with you on your journey, explore aspects of the 'self' that you would like to build, and discover strengths that can be used in your present and future, in order to construct the life you desire. Remember, the steps you take don’t have to be big, they just have to be heading you in the right direction.

My modality influences include: Relational, Narrative, Psychodynamic, ACT, DBT , CBT, Multicultural, Person-Centered.
Have you diligently worked to create a life that thrives, but still feel stuck by childhood or continuing harm? Is your past contributing to anxiety or depression in your current life? Often the coping strategies we form in childhood survive past their "effectiveness date," creating an invisible force that holds us back from thriving. In session, we will create a space for you to explore past, present, and hopes for the future. We will hold both harm and healing, as we create a framework for developing skills and a making adjustments that bring a freedom to thrive. Together we will forge a path that accounts for the beauty and harm.

Most often I am using cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavior, and acceptance and commitment therapy, as well as strengths based.
To decide and take the step toward seeking a counselor is an extremely difficult and courageous one, and here you are. Counseling to me is a collaborative and holistic process. I walk with you and help you to identify your challenges, and pain, as well as finding peace, relief, joy, pieces of you that may be lost and self acceptance. Life is difficult, as we all experience, and having a counselor on your side can assist you in finding your authentic self and reach your goals. Through life's many transitions, barriers, and successes, as as well as past trauma, I hope to help you in this.

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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Tacoma?
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.
