About Talia

I am a licensed clinical psychologist, a certified life and parent coach working with individuals, adults and adolescents, couples, parents, families, and groups, providing assistance in designing, implementing, and living a life filled with satisfaction and love: A life of optimal contentment and happiness!


I am a Master Addiction Counselor, Certified Cognitive Behavioral Therapist, and a Certified Advanced Imago Relationship Therapist.  I am also a Certified Life Coach, awarded by the College of Executive Coaching, and a Certified Parent Coach, awarded by the Parent Coach Institute, (PCI) in conjunction with Seattle Pacific University.   I hold the distinguished status of Psychologist Diplomate and Psychologist Fellow, as well as a Certified Relationship Specialist, awarded by The American Psychotherapy Association.


My expertise is in Relational and Recovery-Life Coaching; assisting people, couples, families, parents in enhancing their recovery process and helping them develop the skills necessary for establishing a satisfying relational life, while maintaining long term abstinence and developing a resilient recovery life.  I am dedicated to coaching people to live intentionally, and in so doing, enhance their life-satisfaction and boost the overall quality of life. My coaching approach is grounded in humanistic and existential philosophies, greatly inspired and influenced by the theories and practices of Positive Psychology and Appreciative Inquiry. I strongly believe that through the process of Relational Life Satisfaction and Quality of Life Coaching, tapping into personal values, needs, aspirations, focusing on strengths, and resources, clients can develop resilience and flourish in ways never before experienced.


Relational Life Satisfaction & Quality of Life Coaching ultimately helps people become happier and more resilient individuals, better able to function and cope with the ever changing demands of personal, relational, and professional life. Through Relational Life and Parent Coaching, individuals, parents, couples and families become more emotionally and relationally competent, and resilient in the face of challenging and stressful life circumstances.
