I absolutely love this work! To me, there is nothing more powerful than the growth and healing we bring to our lives. This healing has a positive impact on everyone we come into contact with and quite literally makes the world a better place. So as painful as it may feel, and as challenging, if you are able to meet your shadows and dig up the roots of your problems, you are improving the quality of your life and those around you. Your relationships, your work, your creativity, your sense of purpose and meaning all benefit. It all starts with you and your willingness to heal.

Approach Description: My practice is diverse and we experiment to uncover what is best for you. Everyone is unique and I like to explore and be flexible in our sessions. The foundation, though, is mindfulness in your body and with your emotions. We start every session with a brief guided meditation and body scan to ground you in your experience and see what's feeling most present for you in that moment. Our bodies are very wise and hold so much for us--including pain and trauma. So we explore not just what your mind needs, but what your body and heart need too. Leading trauma experts agree that we need to connect with the right brain (the emotional, creative mind) in order to heal and release trauma. So in addition to processing and reflecting through stories and shares, we also might try: visualization, breath work, role play, parts work & inner child healing, art therapy, dance or movement, writing exercises, or other creative outlets. I'm really welcome to feedback too, so let me know what feels good for you or what you're wanting. I offer a free 20-minute consultation, so let's talk!

Jessica Thompson Practice Description
My therapy practice is rooted in Gestalt therapy theory, which is very present-oriented and explorative. There is no "goal" in Gestalt therapy, there is no pressure or forcing. Instead, we believe that increased insight and awareness bring forth transformation. The more you understand yourself and the more you accept what you find, the more change naturally occurs. This is beyond a therapy model-- it is a way of life based in self-acceptance and self-love and I have found it to be profoundly healing.
