JESSICA VAN DER MERWECounselor, LPC Intern, LMHCA
I value authenticity, warmth, humor, and creative problem solving. My goal is to establish an emotionally safe and a non-judgemental place for you to feel unburdened by expectations and get in touch with your most authentic self. Our work together will focus holistically on the body, mind, spirit, and cultural responses to stress to map a way toward healing. I use Brainspotting therapy, a brain and body based approach to healing using points of vision, which is shown to be effective in the processing of trauma and various issues, as well as improving performance in athletes and in career goals. I am also trained in Gottman couples therapy and use a trauma-informed and social justice lens to best understand your needs and goals for counseling. This process will build confidence in your innate wisdom, strengths, and trust in your abilities.
