“I am passionate about helping empower women to find their inner voice and unique identity, and to build self-compassion, acceptance, and belief in their own worth.”
I support women on their journey of self-discovery and healing
In providing a safe, nonjudgmental and gentle environment within which you can feel comfortable exploring your thoughts and feelings, we work together to help you to identify and better understand the blocks and challenges affecting you, and assist you in making changes to help you improve your daily life and cope better with your situation. I support you in understanding, healing, and growing from challenges you may have with anxiety, depression, identity, family of origin trauma, loss and grief, domestic violence, creativity, life transitions, and health and wellness.
I am passionate about helping to empower women in finding and/or reclaiming their inner voice and unique identity while learning to cultivate a greater sense of self-compassion, acceptance, and belief in one’s worth.
My counseling approach integrates perspectives from Client Centered, Developmental, Cognitive, Strengths-based, Relational, Trauma, Attachment, Recovery and Feminist views of psychology and therapy. The techniques I use draw from mindfulness-based practices, self-reparenting/ego-state therapies, expressive arts, and relational therapies. Each client’s unique life experiences, coping strategies, strengths, needs and challenges will inform and guide how we work together.
Compassion, empathy and empowerment are core values in my counseling practice.
My professional background includes receiving a Masters Degree (MA) in Counseling Psychology from Antioch University Seattle in 2009 and becoming a Washington Licensed Mental Health Counselor in 2013. I have worked exclusively with women’s mental health in both individual therapy and psychoeducational groups since 2008.
As a lifelong learner, I truly enjoy participating in continuing education to broaden my knowledge in the field, strengthen my clinical skills, and nurture my love of learning. Some of the clinical trainings I have taken include Mindful Self-Compassion, Developmental Needs Meeting Strategy, Facilitation for Women’s Groups, Trauma-Informed Care, Breathwork, Expressive Arts, Focusing and Domestic Violence Advocacy.
I offer a safe, nonjudgmental and gentle place where you are encouraged to fully explore your thoughts and feelings. I will help you to identify and better understand the blocks and challenges affecting you, as well as assist you in making changes to help you to improve your daily life and cope better with your situation. I believe we all have our own answers. With compassion and encouragement, I will support you to tap into your innate healing abilities so you can creatively explore, heal, and grow.
The techniques I offer include talking and reflection, expressive arts such as drama, journaling and movement, mind/body practices, guided imagery, and other gentle and supportive practices to use in your life. I see our relationship as collaborative and will always ask you what works and what does not work for you so we can find the best ways to help you address your needs and goals.

Jacqueline accepts most major insurance plans for Out Of Network benefits and she is working hard to get in network for your plan. Did you know that sometimes out of network benefits can be even better than in-network? Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Be sure to contact your insurance company and find out the details of what is covered. Ultimately, you are responsible for the session fee if your insurance company does not cover the cost of therapy. When you schedule via the website, you will enter your insurance details and information and be guided on what exactly to ask your insurance company before your first appointment.

Cash, check and major credit cards (except American Express and Discover) are accepted for payment. You may also use your Health Savings card. We do not accept payments from 3rd parties for sessions, due to confidentiality. If your parent, friend or family member is paying for your session, you will need to have them reimburse you while you pay us directly.
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance by email (your clinician or email@example.com) phone call or text to 360-329-2055, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session. The exception to this is if there is an emergency or illness. (A work schedule or childcare change does not constitute an emergency.) If you no show, insurance will not be billed for your session, and you will be responsible for the full fee. Please note that our office will not receive your email or text if you respond to the no reply autoreminder.
