Jessica Broderick, MA

Marriage and Family Therapist

Do you feel held back by hard experiences in your past?
Do you feel tired and frustrated by negative thoughts?
Do you feel stuck having the same arguments with your partner(s) again and again?
I believe that all of us need help from time to time, and that people do well if they can.

My Approach

My work is trauma-informed and client-centered. I search for and capitalize on the internal resources and collective strengths of relationships, families, and individuals to bolster their efforts throughout the change process. I see therapeutic change as a necessarily collaborative process, honoring the expertise of each individual in their own experience. I truly believe that each individual, relationship, and family has the ability to heal, grow, and feel deep satisfaction in their lives.

I primarily use Internal Family Systems and Emotion Focused Therapy theories and methods to inform my therapy. I seek to guide clients in uncovering core emotional and attachment needs influencing the patterns of thought and behavior that keep them feeling stuck. My practice centers around self-reflection and exploration and I find that clients truly take out of the experience what they put into it.

My Background

I earned a Master’s degree in marriage, couple, and family therapy from Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling. I have experience in individual, relationship, and family therapy. I also have specific experience working with domestic violence survivors, people going through gender/sexual transition, and “explosive” children and their families.

I offer poly, kink, and LGBTQIA affirming therapy and am knowledgeable about the unique challenges of members of these communities. I also offer non-judgmental and affirming counseling to adults engaging in sex-work and similar fields.
