Alexis Tanaka

I believe all people have a natural ability to be creative, grow, and heal. My passion is to empower individuals on their journey to become their most whole and connected selves, regardless of age or stage of development. By exploring your unique needs, past or present experiences, and goals, we will work together to facilitate the growth that is most important to you.

In my practice, I integrate the use of trauma-informed, body-based, and strengths-based approaches, expressive arts, play therapy, and mindfulness tailored to your individual needs. As your therapist, you can expect me to be a warm, empathic, and supportive presence on your healing journey.
