Hi, My name is Makoto Tanaka. I am a Licensed Social Worker with over 15 years of experience helping people struggling with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma, and addiction. My passion is helping people to walk through the everyday challenges we face. I provide new ways of thinking, coping, and navigating life's challenges while building a rapport and relationship with you.
I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Person-Centered and Trauma-informed care. Through these interventions, I can help you identify your thoughts and emotions causing distress and develop new coping strategies to manage challenging emotions and behaviors.
I also offer services in Japanese. For my clients' convenience, I offer Sunday and weekday evening hours. Please contact us to schedule your initial appointment.
I am looking forward to working with you.
Makoto works out of the Stevenson location.
