About Jessica French

Welcome.

I specialize in trauma- and compassion-focused care, embedded in an attachment, somatic, and psychodynamic approach. I encourage clients to nurture their own sense of safety, self-compassion, self-acceptance, and problem-solving to find relief, more joy, and contentment in life. I am trained in S.A.F.E. EMDR, an evidence-based approach to trauma processing.

I deeply respect what goes into the decision to begin therapy and seek out support, and I recognize the vulnerability it takes to entrust someone else with your stories. I invite you to explore my website to find out more about my approach to therapeutic work with clients. Ultimately, what I believe is important for clients to understand is that any suffering we experience deserves to be seen, heard, and tended to. Sometimes we can do this alone but sometimes we need a helping hand - and that's ok.
