I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in the state of Washington. I have a master’s degree in Social Work from University of Maryland Baltimore. I am driven by the core social work principles of integrity, social justice and service. I begin all therapeutic relationships by recognizing the strengths, wisdom and resilience each client brings. I believe in the value of listening and honoring the client’s direction in treatment. I see therapy as a partnership and seek to assist each client in developing their own tool set. I often draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I have recently begun a yearlong training in Expressive Arts Therapy which incorporate the use of art, music, movement, drama, and writing into treatment. Creative expression is naturally healing and I look forward to facilitating that experience with you.

I love Talle and her work!! Being a creative, she always does an immaculate job bringing that side out of me as our opening activity to get me comfortable and thinking. Amazing!!
Talle is very thoughtful and supportive. She's adept at highlighting my more positive attributes, and helping me to identify my limiting beliefs and habits (without judgement). I've noticed a lot of personal growth since I've begun working with her. She encourages me to prioritize self-care and points out my strengths when I'm feeling low. She helps me to understand my emotions, and together we work to explore my past experiences to find the sources of my troubles. I'm very grateful for her!
Talle has been an essential piece in me understanding my trauma and how to heal from it. They offer a variety of tools to help cope with anxiety, while also addressing my personal needs throughout the session. I wouldn't have made the same progress in the last year if not for Talle's help!
Talle is fantastic, listens well and is very helpful! Strongly recommend.
Talle has been wonderful. She helps me work through my issues and concerns with compassion and empathy. She is thoughtful and considerate when approaching difficult topics but can also joke around and insert her own humanness into the session when appropriate. I feel like she really understands and supports me. I am lucky to have been matched with her!
I worked with Talle for about 3 months and had a wonderful time. It was my first time meeting with a therapist. She was super receptive and helpful. I always got something valuable out of all of our meetings!
Absolutely wonderful person to work with! 10/10 helped me a lot with all problems brought up and really showed me she cared! Thank you for helping me so much!!
Talle has been so invaluable To my mental health these past couple months that I can scarcely imagine getting through it with out them. Talle is attentive, caring , thoughtful and absolutely one of a kind.
Talle is amazingly kind and knowledgeable. She is wonderfully patient. I am really enjoying doing guided mediations and expressive art therapy. It allows me to dip my feet into dealing with my issues without confronting them head on while still getting used to the idea of therapy and the process.
Very patient and listens to what I'm saying without always trying to immediately fix the problem but gives me opportunities to work towards a long term fix
