Who We Are

Jessica, LMHC
Owner & Lead Therapist

I love to facilitate reflective yet practical therapy that has the potential to bring about long-term benefits. I come to this work with ten+ years of experience in the trauma and education fields after having lived and worked in Southeast Europe and Western Asia as part of refugee, terrorism, trafficking, domestic violence, and trauma response teams.

I have an M.A. in Clinical Psychology, an M.A. in International Development, and post-graduate training in relevant areas such as complex trauma, grief, attachment, affective neuroscience, and early childhood mental health. I'm EMDR-trained through EMDRIA, a NARM®-Informed Professional, and a Circle of Security® Parenting™ Facilitator.

I believe it's a privilege that I get to be a therapist every day and I truly respect what goes into the process of entrusting your story to someone else - even if it's just for one hour each week. My hope for those I work with is that they will leave therapy with more self-kindness, self-knowledge, helpful tools, and a sense of resilience and recovery that will continue to serve them as they move forward in life.


Get to Know Me

I'm not originally from the U.S. but the PNW is now considered home. 

I'm a mom to one human and one fluffy dog - sometimes the latter appears in sessions!

I love getting lost in fiction, repeat-playing Last of Us, salty early mornings on the ferry, and finding undiscovered pockets in local towns.

Support Staff
Scheduling, Billing, Records

Our support staff provides front- and back-office coordination including new client communication and onboarding, scheduling and cancelations, billing, and other week-to-week tasks that help us to continue supporting you. They are passionate about providing access to mental health care and helping clients understand how to navigate the systems that often stand in the way of receiving support.

We're looking for therapists!

We're seeking to expand our clinician base with an LMHC or LMHCA in WA State (or equivalent; assoc. must provide proof of supervision). Our ideal colleague works with a compassion-focused lens and is informed by the latest knowledge and practices in trauma work, the psychobiology of grief, and cognitive-somatic models.
