Chanel Ruby | Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner

I provide psychiatric evaluation, medication management and supportive therapy.  I take a non-pathologizing approach, meaning I view your experience as an expression of the complexity of your life, rather than an intrinsic flaw.  I value the unique experience you bring, and the perspective and wisdom that comes from that experience.  My work is rooted in mindfulness and embodiment, as I find that turning towards the body in the present moment to be a valuable vehicle of self-understanding.   I value slowness, and taking the time we need for you to fully share your story.  I also practice from a trauma-informed and intersectional lens, meaning I acknowledge and work with the many ways in which we are impacted by external forces of our families, communities, institutions, and governments.

Jess "Jay" Jarris | Somatic Psychotherapist, Yoga Therapist

she/they | white, femme/genderqueer, pansexual, and

living with chronic illness/pain.

My approach is holistic, earthy, and rooted in mindfulness and embodiment practices. I believe that our bodies can be a powerful ally on our healing journeys and that learning to listen to our body’s cues, messages and wisdom is a skill that we all can develop. In my sessions, I blend Counseling, Somatic Experiencing, Mindfulness and Yoga Therapy.  I draw from person-centered and existential therapy, polyvagal theory, attachment theory, intersectional feminism and neuroscience. I am a LGBQIA and Trans affirming therapist and work from the lens of social justice, anti-racism and Health at Every Size (HAES).
