Deja Hankins, LMHCA
Hello, my name is Deja Hankins. I am a clinical mental health counselor associate. I work with children, teens, and adults who want to explore what they feel and why. I provide services to those who are seeking help with depression, anxiety, trauma, attachment, relationship struggles, life transitions, stressors, etc. My desire to begin a career as a clinical mental health counselor was based upon wanting to help people help themselves. Helping clients by building a therapeutic relationship that promotes healing through making connections in a safe, understanding, and supportive environment. I hope to provide individuals with the space to share their stories and make meaning. I use various perspectives in practice which include psychodynamic, person-centered, and DBT techniques that best fit each client's individual needs. Please reach out if you would like to begin your healing journey.
Nadia Henderson, Certified Counselor
My name is Nadia Henderson, I completed my Masters in Psychology in September 2022, and I have a BA in Human Service. I have worked in the Native America community as a teacher and in various other roles for 15 years. I have also worked with the developmentally disabled population since 2006. I worked both jobs while completing my education and building my family. I have always had a passion for helping people, thus, I felt that counseling would offer me that satisfaction. I then started working my way to the counseling field by volunteering at the Rescue mission and at my church helping individuals however I could. In June of 2022, I took a leap of faith, ended my time at the school, and began pursuing work in the counseling field and was lead to Puyallup Psychotherapeutic Alliance where I am currently working with a wide array of individuals.
Christall Murphy, LMHCA
Are you ready to embark on a transformative path toward healing and personal growth? If so, you've come to the right place! I'm Christall, MS, LMHC-A, NCC, and I’m looking forward to partnering with you and being your guide through life's twists and turns, and this incredible adventure we call therapy.
If you've been through the battles of life and emerged with scars, I'm here to help you heal. My specialization in trauma work means that I'm equipped with the tools and techniques to guide you toward recovery and resilience. I’m also passionate about working with young people on gender identity and sexuality issues.
I am trained in EMDR therapy, a proven method for processing past traumas and facilitating emotional healing. Additionally, I've honed my skills in the DeTur method, a powerful approach that confronts addiction and compulsive behaviors head-on, offering you the opportunity to regain the freedom you truly deserve. Moreover, I've undertaken extensive training in both the Recent Incident Protocol and the dynamic FLASH technique. These invaluable tools empower us to effectively address recent traumatic experiences, supporting your journey toward resilience and overall well-being."
Staying at the cutting edge of therapeutic techniques is important to me and I am currently honing my skills in Brain Spotting and Internal Family Systems (IFS). Don’t settle for the ordinary when we can explore the extraordinary together! Brain-Spotting is a cutting-edge therapy that explores the mind-body connection to address a wide range of emotional and psychological issues. IFS, on the other hand, focuses on understanding and harmonizing the various parts of our inner selves, promoting inner healing and self-compassion.
I am also trained in the Gottman Method (Levels 1 and 2) for couples, helping you build strong, connected relationships, or navigate the bumps in the road with grace.
In my counseling space, you're not just a client; you're a unique individual with your own story. I'm here to listen, understand, and support you every step of the way. This means that your needs, goals, and pace are at the center of our work together. I will provide guidance, support, and a non-judgmental space where you can explore your emotions, build resilience, and develop the skills to lead a more fulfilling life.
Let's be real, life is a rollercoaster, and we'll experience the ups and downs together. We'll tackle the serious stuff with compassion and grace, but we'll also find joy, humor, and genuine connection along the way.
So, if you are ready to take the first step towards healing, growth, and transformation, where we'll laugh, learn, and lean on each other as we navigate life's challenges and celebrate its triumphs. Let’s get started!
Natalie Sovde, LMFTA
I am an LMFTA and I have worked in the behavioral health field since 2006 as SUDP. I graduated with my MA degree in marriage and family therapy in 2021. I am a firm believer that every person has strengths and my therapeutic approach is rooted in empathy with the belief that each person has abilities to flourish in life, recognizing that trauma and other factors can hide those abilities and strengths deep within us. Therapy is a way to gently explore our inner selves, bringing to light those strengths and hopes to overcome life's challenges in order to live a meaningful life.
I profoundly respect that you’re searching for help. It takes boldness and courage to make the decision
to reach out for support, and I do not take that lightly.
I’m a Master’s in Clinical Psychology student at City University of Seattle and will be graduating in June
2023. I have experience working with clients facing challenges with depression, anxiety, family issues,
romantic relationship issues, abuse, meaning, spiritual issues, career change, and many other of life’s
stressors. The therapeutic environment I create is a compassionate, empathetic, calm, safe, trustworthy
space where you can be your genuine self. You will be heard. You will be respected. And we’ll
collaborate together toward your goals, and help you find life satisfaction and peace.
