About My Clients
You’re so tired. The anxiety, the insecurity, the constant stress in your relationships, the perfectionism—it’s all just wearing you down. You give and give, but it never feels like “enough,” and just leaves you depleted and anxious. You are emotionally overwhelmed and half the time you don’t know what you feel. Some days you’re holding back tears, other days you're numbed out and lacking motivation, and other days you’re running on anxiety and on the verge of a panic attack.
My Background and Approach
My name is Kate Hagborg, LMHC, and I provide counseling for women in Tacoma, WA to help you feel more confident, alive, and fulfilled in your relationships—with people, in your spirituality, and most importantly with yourself. In counseling, we will delve into the process of how you can learn to first love yourself in a way that is deep and fulfilling. Together we will equip you with tools to understand what you are feeling, calm the overwhelm, and get your needs more effectively. I use a trauma-informed therapy method called Lifespan Integration that is effective at helping women get to the root of what is driving the insecurity, depression, and anxiety by bringing healing to those wounds at the source. Often once these wounds and traumas are addressed, clients feel a greater sense of peace, self-compassion, and hope. For those clients who want to integrate their spirituality into counseling, I also offer optional faith-based counseling. Call for a free 15-min phone consult.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
My biggest goal is that the counseling relationship would be a compassionate, accepting, and warm relationship where you can safely explore sources of shame that need to be healed. In this therapeutic context, you can practice cultivating self-compassion and learn to love yourself in a new way. For clients who wish to, we can weave your spirituality into sessions, allowing you to tap into all of your resources and help you heal in a holistic way that is most true to you. A major focus in my work is helping you to see and celebrate your strengths as part of your process. We will not always focus on “what’s wrong” since many of my clients are aware they are their own biggest critics. But I will help you to see with fresh eyes all the things that are right about you! And I will help you bring these strengths to the table to address the areas of life that need adjustments. Call today for a free phone consultation to see if we're a good fit.
