Desiree Turner

Counselor , MEd , LMHC

(253) 237-4973
I focus on helping my clients understand and heal attachment issues, processing of trauma, resolving parenting difficulties, and work/life conflicts. My goal is to give my clients a place to feel safe to discuss the stresses and troubles they may be experiencing. Although I counsel people of all ages, I particularly enjoy seeing children under the age of 18. I also like to provide support for parents and help the family achieve regulation by improving understanding and communication between family members.
I use directive and non-directive play therapy with children and Alderian and filial therapy to help with parenting. Some adults and adolescents enjoy using the sand tray to express fear, unmet needs and hopes. My techniques are also informed by Solution Focused Therapy, Family Systems Theory, and Mindfulness approaches.
I enjoy seeing children, adults and families in my offices in Tacoma, Port Orchard and Bremerton.
