Jaci Diggs, Clinical Intern
I believe that therapy creates a space in which we can deepen connection to ourselves and within our relationships. My goal is to create a space where clients can explore and share their most authentic selves without feeling alone or misunderstood. I value your personal views and understandings and work from a place of believing you to be the expert of your identity and lived experience.
My work is rooted in collaboration, consent, and trauma-informed care. When working together, I encourage your participation in making a plan for our work together to meet your unique needs. I often incorporate check-ins and encourage feedback throughout the therapy process to create a safe environment where you can feel confident to make lasting change.
My approach to therapy is integrated and unique to each person and relationship system. I draw from a variety of approaches, including narrative therapy, art therapy, sex therapy, strength-based, solution-focused, dialectal behavioral therapy (DBT), emotional focused therapy (EFT), and attachment theory. I recognize everyone faces their own unique set of challenges, and as your therapist, it is my role to customize the space to better serve your growth and needs. I practice a non-judgmental, trauma-informed, and culturally aware therapy and commit to incorporating your intersectional identities into the therapeutic process.
As a couples and family therapist, I am trained in thinking systemically and have a strong interest in seeing how people relate to one another. I believe how we show up as individuals and in our relationships is a product of our unique systemic patterns, personal experiences, and innate identity. My role is to help you uncover how these pieces influence and interact with one another to create your personal strengths and resiliency.
As an art therapist, I sometimes invite clients to engage in art-making during our sessions. You do not need to be an artist to do art therapy! I encourage the use of art as an abstract tool to bring a new sense of understanding.
