Marcy Irene Jenks, MS, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor Intern

I believe that everyone can benefit from counseling, and that discovery of one’s true nature ultimately connects them with the source of healing, peace and happiness. Partnering with a therapist who will support this journey with unconditional positive regard and empathy is essential to the process.

My Approach

I offer compassionate and heart-centered counseling to individuals, couples and groups, using mindful, experiential, relational and somatic based techniques. In sessions I invite you to discover your authentic self by curiously exploring all aspects of your personhood, helping you to pay attention to yourself from a place of non-judgmental observation, and from this place to study your experience of the world. Providing a supportive and safe container, I will hold space for your deepest wisdoms to unfold; an insightful process that allows for increased awareness, presence and inspiration that is life-changing! I also draw from existential, humanistic and psychodynamic theories based on your unique needs regarding mind, body, spirit and soul. I believe that the counselor-client relationship is at the foundation of a successful self-exploration endeavor and with gentle curiosity, grace and wonder, we will partner on a journey to a place of self-integration and fullness of being.

My Background

I feel fortunate to have spent ten years as a stay at home mom raising my three children, then earning a BS in Nursing from the UW in Seattle and becoming Certified as an Ayurvedic Consultant through Kerala Ayurveda Academy. Graduating from Walden University with a MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, I finished a year-long internship with the M.E.T.A Counseling Clinic in Portland, completed the Hakomi Mindful Somatic Professional Skills Module, the Re-Creation of the Self Module, and the Primary Attachment Psychotherapy Module. I have explored various aspects of mental health and its relation to physical health through my work as a hospital nurse, and have studied psychology through an eastern perspective, providing assessment, diagnosis and treatment consultations to clients using Ayurvedic medicine. These experiences have seasoned my understanding and reverence of human diversity with a deep respect for the unique healing path that each person discovers for themselves.
