Cultivating Hope & Strength to Improve Lives

About Us

     Family Foundations Counseling (FFC) is a vibrant group of behavioral health professionals in Tacoma, Washington who function as a team to help others experience enriched lives. The Christian counselors are open to all individuals, couples, and families regardless of religious preference, race or culture. The focus of FFC is personal and relational growth as well as healing for the wounded spirit, soul, and body through the healthy integration of relational, psychological, and spiritual principles with clinical excellence. We offer services to "restore, support, strengthen, and build a firm foundation" (I Peter 5:10 NLT). FFC practitioners are available for seminars, consultation, and training.

     In 1982, while attending Bible school, Brian Tingley became aware of the reciprocal interaction between the spiritual and the psychological and the importance of nurturing both. That discovery was so inspiring to him that he eventually redirected his vocational plans from ministry and media to becoming a professional counselor. Brian established a private practice in 2002 after a colleague offered to share her University Place office space with him and Family Foundations Counseling was born.

     Brian and his wife, Elaina, also a counselor, opened their own office space in Fircrest during the summer of 2011. It was shortly thereafter that additional counselors joined FFC. As the need for services increased, additional counselors became part of the team. With more people came the need for more space. In 2014, FFC moved to its current location at 2002 65th Avenue West.

     As FFC continues to grow, our mission remains the same - Cultivating Hope and Strength to Improve Lives.
