Tiffany Somera, MA, LMFTA, MHP


Description of Counselor/Practice

Life can be challenging and change is inevitable, and with transitions there are many aspects to growth and loss. I work with individuals, couples, and family systems; often dealing with unprocessed grief, trauma, parenting, identity issues, and midlife decisions. It takes courage to communicate the strong emotions felt within these difficult topics, especially to those you love the most. I work alongside my clients, both adolescents to elderly; helping to explore and articulate their thoughts and feelings in a kind and effective manner. My approach to therapy is attachment-based and grounded within a social justice framework. I utilize a number of collaborative approaches that are evidence-based and incorporate humor in the room - because let's be real, therapy is hard! We will work together to process difficult behavioral patterns, building skills to navigate through life circumstances. As an Asian-Pacific Islander, I understand how culture can have a huge impact on reaching out for mental health support. The therapeutic relationship we will build is aimed at recognizing your strengths based on cultural and individual values. Every person has a unique and authentic story that deserves to be celebrated, to be heard, and to be honored.
