Life Is Hard

 Psychotherapy Can Help


About Me

Have you ever noticed how difficult life can feel?  The reality is that life is hard (it's also a lot of other things, but it's undeniably hard at times).  Everyone's hard looks different, but one thing is certain -- getting support really helps.  You don't have to do the hard alone.  Psychotherapy can help -- A LOT!


Hi, I'm Taneille.  I've worked with children, couples and individuals in a number of different settings.  I bring both years of professional experience and  personal experience to my work.  In other words, I know what it’s like to be a vulnerable human in an unpredictable, magnificent and sometimes scary world.  I help people navigate their lives and relationships with greater ease.  I strive to genuinely connect with people, so I bring an approachable and down-to-earth style to my work.  Working in this way is enriching and inspiring to me.  No matter the setting, I want to talk about what’s really going on instead of the more socially acceptable “nice talk.”  As corny and cliché as it may sound, life has been my greatest teacher.  Your life is teaching you as well – let’s access your wisdom from your unique life experiences. 

I received my Master of Science degree in Counseling from San Francisco State University.  I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT 44676) in California and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC 60949155) in Washington.  I have been licensed since 2007, and consider myself a lifelong student. 

I look forward to hearing from you!
