WHAT THERAPISTS IN TACOMA HAVE TO SAY

As a mental health professional, what types of services do you offer?

I offer counseling services to individuals and couples, as well as youths. I accept payments by credit card and also offer a sliding scale.

When should one seek treatment?

I believe one should seek treatment when they notice that the journey they have been taking isn't getting them where they want to go. There is no time limit on therapy. Sometimes you're ready to do work on yourself and sometimes you're not. Sometimes you will start and hit a wall and decide that you can't go further. Self-discovery is a life-long journey and you have the power to set the pace. I'm here to support you, encourage you, and challenge you. 

Why should someone choose to come to your practice?

In our work together, I will provide a safe, confidential space where you can share your story and experience with me. We will work to set goals for our time together and I will provide resources to help you meet your goals. My approach is grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, but I will use a variety of therapeutic methodologies tailored to meet your needs.

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering from either and/or both?

In my experience, people will sometimes use substances as a way of coping with other issues in their life. I am not a chemical dependency counselor, but I have worked with individuals whose use of substances has been impeding their progress towards their life goals.

What types of services do you offer?

I offer individual, couples, and group counseling.

What issues do you specify treatment for?

I work with a variety of issues. I think therapy can work like a gym for your mind.  If someone needs education, guidance, or support then a counselor could be agood option for them.  Finding the right therapist can do wonders for not just your mental health but ones overall health. My clients range from supportive life coaching to bipolar issues, adults with childhood abuse, and personality disorders.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.  I pull from many theories in my use of these modes but primarily a humanistic approach.  When I am working with a client, they get the genuine me in our sessions.

When should one seek treatment?

I think the answer depends on the individual.  Some noticable difficulties in certain areas of their lives, for some it is people they know suggesting they seek assistance. I personally think therapy is good preventative maintenance and if can help creating protective factors so you are able to cope better when life throws you a curve, because trust me, sooner or later it will.

Why should someone choose to come to your practice?

I think someone should come to my practice because I genuinely invest in my clients success. Unlike traditional therapy I offer my clients the ability to email and call during sessions for crisis interventions and coaching.  I also offer support without judgment.  I want feedback from my clients.  I understand that I can't be effective for everyone. So I offer free consultations so clients can see if they feel we would be a good fit before making a financial commitment. 

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering from either and/or both?

For clients who suffer with substance abuse issues you can look underneath the surface of that addiction and find mental health issues. Treatment can begin immediately but until you remove the substance it is difficult to have an accurate assessment.

As a behavioral therapist, I would treat the issues from that framework. I think tracking and assessments can be helpful,  but I think a client with substance abuse would be better served with an addiction and recover specialist. If they were currently using, I would refer them to someone better suited to work with those needs.

Tacoma, WA 98402

What types of services do you offer?

I offer counseling services to those who are struggling to lose/maintain weight, build a better self image, understand nourishing food and relationships, find happiness, and achieve overall wellness in all aspects of their lives including food, career, spirituality, relationships, finances, etc. I am a strong believer that all these areas are interconnected. In addition to counseling services I also offer individual grocery shopping trips, cleaning out pantry cupboards, group programs, workshops, lectures, and support groups.

What issues do you specify treatment for?

Most of my counseling is around food/nutrition, building a positive body image, setting and attaining positive goals, and making positive lifestyle changes. However, like I stated above, we also address other areas of the person's life that can be affecting their health either negatively or positively. It is about understanding the client's goals, identifying the barriers that are keeping them from reaching those goals, and the steps needed to get them there. 

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

I take a positive holistic coaching approach; I do not diagnose or treat. I help guide the client in the positive direction that they desire and let them lead the way. I think everyone has a level of innate self-knowledge, and helping people find what works best for them in their unique life is one of the most important steps to achieving overall wellness. I require that anyone dealing with an addiction be sober for at least 6 months before working together, simply because I think it is incredibly important to their success to focus solely on sobriety. If there is a mental health diagnosis in addition to addiction, I require the individual to get additional treatment from a licensed therapist or doctor and in compliance with any medication presciption. 

When should one seek treatment?

I think this would vary for many people, and unfortunately making the steps toward recovery can sometimes feel overwhelming, scary, and sometimes even "pointless." Someone may feel like they have an addiction and immediately want to do something about it. For others, it can be a longer and more painful process. But as far as when I personally think someone should seek treatment, ideally I think when the person recognizes that the addiction is negatively affecting their life, relationships, health, finances, etc., and they are not living productively, lively, or happily. Someone may also feel like they cannot get their problem under control by themselves, may feel dependent on the substance or need it to get through the day, which can also all be signs they need additional support. It's incredibly beneficial to have the support and encouragement from family or loved ones. 

Why should someone choose to come to your practice?

Someone should choose to come to my practice because I am realistic, relatable, and take a very positive approach to my counseling. I am not big on tooting my own horn, but much of the feedback I get from clients emphasizes how much they appreciate the "whole-person" approach I take to wellness, as well as the unconditional support, encouragement and nonjudgmental they receive. I have also been told it is very apparent I love what I do, and that shows through in my counseling! Anybody who finds those aspects of counseling important to them would really thrive working with me.  

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering from either and/or both?

Like I had stated above, I do not treat or diagnose mental health disorders, however I am able to work with individuals (within my specialty) with a diagnosis if they are working in concurrence with another licensed health provider. I think there is a definite connection between mental health and addiction that often times goes unnoticed, or is not treated properly. It is detrimental to the individual with a mental health diagnosis and addiction to be treated for both individually, and that the providers have a clear plan set in place for the goal of sobriety and mental wellness.

What types of services do you offer?

I offer individual, family and couples counseling.

What issues do you specify treatment for?

My speciality is working with trauma and complicated grief, ranging from domestic violence survivors to affairs to crime victims and traumatic loss.

What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?

Eclectic. I use cognitive behavioral therapy, emotion focused therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and a psychodynamic approach.

When should one seek treatment?

People seek counseling for a variety of reasons including feeling unhappy, unfulfilled, worried, sad, or angry. People also seek out counseling to help change behaviors that are troubling them including addictive or disordered behaviors or behaviors that affect their relationships at home or at work. Some people seek counseling because they have a life goal that has been eluding them and they are ready to explore their barriers. Other people seek out counseling because they know they are going through a difficult time or facing a difficult decision and they desire a place to sort through their feelings and move forward in their life with intention and clear thinking.

Why should someone choose to come to your practice?

My practice is built on a foundation of strong clinical training, close attention to the therapeutic process, and a creative and practical approach to complex issues. Confidential counseling to individuals, couples and families is provided in a comfortable and supportive atmosphere. With sensitivity and compassion, I help clients find solutions to a wide range of life challenges and emotional issues. Since we tend to look inward only when confronted by personal difficulties, it is then that we are given an opportunity to see ourselves most clearly and make meaningful changes in our lives.

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering from either and/or both?

Co-occurring disorders require someone who is a chemical dependency professional who specializes in working with both substance abuse issues and mental illness. Often times when someone has an undiagnosed mental illness they will self-medicate with drugs or if they have experienced psychological suffering will seek to numb or detach at times with drugs/alcohol. Substance use can sometimes generate induced symptoms of a mental illness that is resolved with treatment and sobriety.
