I am taking new clients through telehealth (online video sessions) during day and evening hours on weekdays in Washington state and Maryland
Licensed Professional Counselor in Tacoma, WA
I am trained in Art Therapy and I am a Board-Certified, Registered Art Therapist (ATR-BC). I love to integrate art into therapy sessions if a client is interested, although it is not always necessary to use art. Art can be a strong communication tool to help you understand yourself in a way that verbal language might fail.
I use Person-Centered therapy as my foundation as I believe you are the expert of your life and I am here to be your support. I'll help you iron out the wrinkles so that you can better able to understand yourself and meet your goals of therapy.
I am Level 1 trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and integrate this into my Person-Centered, Strengths-Based approach to all my treatment. I believe there is a strong connection between the mind and body and that sometimes mental health issues can store themselves in the physical body.
Many of my clients are a part of the LGBTQ community, giving me a specialty in working with them. I'd love to help support you with any issues that arise in your life regarding being a part of the LGBTQ community.
I have both personal and professional experience with the kink community and I really love working with people within the kink and BDSM world. My particular specialties within this community are focused on D/s relationship dynamics.
My personal and professional experiences with polyamorous relationships have led me to specialize in working with others within the community. I'd love to support you on your journey and help you navigate concerns about your poly relationships.
