Counseling in Tacoma​

Since 1996

Feel like you don’t know who you are?

Do you experience invasive thoughts that you can't stop?

Is your partner relationship not what it used to be?

Are you struggling to connect with your kids?


Seeing a professional counselor helps create a safe space to explore goals, ways to connect in your relationships, and improve emotional availability to yourself and others. 

Don’t just survive – thrive in life.

Call 253.651.3752 to get started.

People come in for a variety of issues: struggling through a transition, coping with the aftermath of an affair, tired of having the same arguments with loved ones, and even therapists who are seeking their own growth. Your rational brain may know what to do, but unless your emotional brain is on board, change is not sustainable and you just end up feeling more frustrated, alone, or like a failure. My job is to use effective methods for authentic wellness.

Love can stir up old hurts that you didn’t even know were there. Old beliefs like "I'm not good enough" or "I'm not important" can get in the way of your happiness. Change happens when you update these negative beliefs. As your  therapist, I can confront sabotaging behaviors and help you focus on solutions. Stop blaming, power tripping, and disrespecting yourself and your partner. 

Since 1996, I’ve been an individual, couples, and family counselor in Tacoma. I have developed many effective approaches to working with a variety of people using traditional psychotherapy and EMDR.

Call me, and we can talk about which option works best for you.


  • Weekly individual appointments

  • Individual Intensive - private 10 hour intensive over two days​ to shift the root of the issue and start making changes now

  • Weekly couples sessions

  • Couples Jump Start - 5 hour session on how to remove the dirty dozen


It is important to find a counselor that is a good fit for you. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)  I can support you in gaining clarity about where you would like to be in your life.


For therapists seeking certification or licensure supervision, I am a Washington State Clinical Supervisor for LMHCAs and Certified Counselors.

I encourage you to read over my website and schedule an initial 60-75 minute meeting. If you decide within the first 15 minutes we are not a good match, you owe nothing. Otherwise, we’ll take time to carefully assess how to turn your concerns into goals and your pain into wisdom.

Please contact me if there is
anything I can do to help you.
