Jessica Lee, LMFT, CSLC
Small talk has never been my thing.
The weather? Sure, we can chat about it for a second. But that's not what interests me. I want to hear about your thoughts about life and death. I want to know what your very first memory is. I'm curious about your heartbreaks, the pain you've endured, and the most blissful moment of your entire life that still makes you smile when you think about it.
That's why I got into this field -- to connect with people on a soul deep level. To accompany them on their journeys of healing and transformation. There is no greater honor to me than to walk side by side with someone on this path.
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), as well as a certified spiritual life coach (CSLC). For nearly a decade, I have specialized in working with people who have experienced recent or childhood trauma, such as sexual or physical abuse, neglect, domestic violence or witness to it, loss, etc.
Although I have a long history of working with children, I am currently only accepting adults 18 years and older of all genders and orientations. I am an LGBTQ affirming and trans competent therapist, so you don't have to worry about spending our sessions together educating me about terminology. ;)
My therapy approach is emotion focused, feminist in nature, with the utilization of mindfulness techniques. I am trained in EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) through Trauma Recovery/HAP. I'm also a nationally certified trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapist.
What about that spiritual stuff?
I know what you're thinking. "A spiritual life coach? What is that?"
I got my CSLC certification after my master's degree in counseling because my spirituality is a huge part of my life, and I know it's an important part of many of your lives as well. I wanted to learn all the best ways to incorporate your own personal spiritual practices/rituals in our sessions together to help us create a safe space that promotes healing, where we can delve even deeper into the depths of your psyche.
Do we have to follow the same spiritual traditions to work together? Of course not! Here are some of the elements I have incorporated into sessions in the past:
guided meditation and mindfulness, crystals, essential oils, tarot/oracle cards for reflection, yoga poses, and prayer to your specific god(s)/guides/ancestors. This is probably a good place to mention I am Reiki level 2 certified and am working toward level 3!
That’s enough about me. Please contact me and tell me about YOU!
