Are you struggling with issues related to parenting, trauma, grief, addiction, anxiety, or major life changes? Do you have a court requirement to fulfill? There comes a time when we need some help from a certified professional to help cope with many of life’s challenges. I’m a Mental Health Service Provider here in Pierce County, and I’d love to help you on your journey toward healing and self-discovery.
Since 2013, I have helped foster families, single parents, step parents, grandparents caring for their grand children, blended families, parents working with state services, justice involved families and so many others throughout Pierce, King, Thurston and Kitsap Counties. Life can be overwhelming and sometimes even exhausting, but I’m here to guide you through any obstacles you may face. My goal is to help you understand yourself more deeply and better cope with change and do your work.

MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID USA
Become a Mental Health First Aid Responder!
March 2020 has really affected all of us-some in small and major ways. Anxiety has gone up, depression has increased, and most of us are questioning when will things get back to "normal". Some of us are hiding behind a smile but struggling to adjust to this new normal. Some are openly struggling but have little support to fall back on because we are busy supporting others. Others are managing but do not know how to effectively help those closest to us or in our community.
Mental Health First Aid USA is an 8-hour training to teach participants how to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The evidence behind the program demonstrates that it helps trainees identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders.
A Happier, Healthier Family
Parenting can be challenging, especially with the pandemic- school closures, social activities being limited, and people worried about contacting this deadly disease. Life has changed as we know it! Family dynamics have changed- parents are working from home with school age children and children are not able to see friends as they used to. Buttons are being pushed in ways that were unimaginable, emotional and psychological needs are not being met and it feels like there is no end to the stress of parenting. But remember, there is no "bad child", just challenging behavior. If you, or a loved one, are struggling with establishing parenting routines, have challenges redirecting attention seeking behaviors, or need to refresh parenting skills, this service is for you! This service can also be used when co-parenting in different homes.
