Tanya Flanagin, LMHC

About Me

I have 12 years providing services to the community and specializing in the recovery from trauma. I will partner with you in your healing through a framework that is holistic, feminist, trauma-focused and informed by my long experience working with domestic violence. Systems of oppression are often the root cause of anxiety, trauma, and suffering that survivors experience in our culture. I work with a focus on the recovery and reclamation of your unique authenticity and identity, which often gets lost through the experience of trauma and oppression. We will work together to transform and resolve painful symptoms, alleviate your suffering and increase your emotional well-being. My approach to healing is to increase optimal well-being through our therapeutic relationship, trauma-informed therapies such as EMDR, and mindfulness-based coping strategies.

Education & Experience

I specialize in the recovery from trauma, abuse and systems of oppression. I studied health psychology at Bastyr university and earned my Masters degree in Counseling Psychology at Saybrook University in 2013. I am a certified trauma clinician, have been trained using Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and I am currently working towards certification in this modality. Other modalities that influence my work are narrative therapy, family systems theory, attachment-focused theories and a variety of mindfulness disciplines.
