Jaxon Shaffer, M.A.

Marriage Family Therapist Intern

As a non-binary clinician, my work is primarily focused on affirmative care for clients of all ages who are gender expansive and/or LGBT+, their partners, and families. I strive to assist my clients in accessing their authentic selves and living to their fullest potential.

My Approach

It is my goal to empower my clients to work through unprocessed emotions and lingering painful events that create barriers to the inherent wisdom and strength each person holds inside of themselves. Messages from society about how we, or our lives, are supposed to look can cause us to experience a lot of guilt and shame when we feel that we don't measure up. Some of the work I do involves recognizing and restructuring harmful internalized messages or thought patterns, accessing language to better communicate needs, guiding clients in exploration of identity, considering relationship dynamics that are causing stress, pursuing options for body and/or gender affirmation, or getting general anxiety under control.

My Background

I am a recent graduate of Lewis and Clark College with a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have been seeing clients consistently for just over a year. My therapeutic style is collaborative, curious, and also direct. I am poly and kink friendly, anti-racist, and body positive. If you believe that I would be a good fit for you or someone you care about, please don't hesitate to reach out via email or by phone, I offer free 15 minute phone consultations. I look forward to hearing from you!
