About me

Jamy Rae Hanson, LMFT

Licensed Family Therapist

I feel incredibly grateful for my life. My job warms my heart and brings out the best me. I truly cherish the relationships I have with my clients and am continuously being reminded of the true beauty and strength of the human heart. I am a life long learner and feel that my clients bring incredible amounts of wisdom into the room. I don't have all the answers but I do my very best to really see and hear the people who are brave enough to step out of their comfort zones and walk into the uncomfortableness with me.  

I have been practicing as a therapist for over five years. Before receiving my masters degree I was using my bachelors degree in Child Psychology to work with children and their families in an early childhood setting.  My love for helping families become stronger and healthier led me to where I am today. 

I have an amazing family who keep me living and loving passionately.  Together we enjoy being in the woods, watching and playing sports, making each other laugh, and pushing one another to be our best selves.

 

I value and care about:

authentic human connection
Nature and all of its creatures
music and it’s power to heal and allow us to feel
humor and laughing (especially at myself)
vulnerability
learning and humility 

what i am grateful for:

my wife and children
my many privileges
my ability to hear others stories and help them heal
my dog’s soft and fuzzy ears
my health
my strength and courage to heal myself and my family

 

Although I use a variety of techniques in my practice, I find myself being strongly influenced and inspired by the following people/ideas:

Attachment theory 

Emotionally focused therapy

Brene Brown

Pema Chodron

Internal Family Systems

Mindfulness and somatic healing
