Whom I Serve

I offer ongoing one-on-one depth-oriented psychotherapy and EMDR (a special protocol for accelerating relief from trauma) to adults of all genders who are outwardly functional but struggling to create their own inspired, authentic life. At this time I do not see children, families, or couples. For more information on the kind of humans I work best with, click here.

Time and Place

Psychotherapy sessions for individual adults are typically 50 minutes long, once or twice a week. Currently I see patients weekday evenings and Saturday mornings.

My office is located in Fircrest — between central Tacoma and University Place:

  • 10 minutes from downtown Tacoma
  • 15 minutes from Gig Harbor
  • 15 minutes from Lakewood
  • 20 minutes from Federal Way
  • 25 minutes from Puyallup

It is convenient to Highway 16 and to Pierce Transit route #52. There is plenty of free street parking.

If we surrendered to Earth’s intelligence
we could rise up rooted, like trees.

The first step toward starting therapy with me is to schedule a phone screening to make sure we're a good fit. If we are, then on the phone we'll schedule our first face-to-face meeting to take place at my office in Tacoma, Washington; thereafter all meetings will be in person. If we're not a good fit, I'll provide you referrals and resources so you can connect with the right therapist for you.

I look forward to connecting with you!
