Under Clinical Supervision

Jackie Turner, Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, R8044 is practicing under the supervision of Jessica Thomas (Oregon, LMFT, T0935) at Private Practice.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

In my work with individuals, couples, and families, I am an integrative therapist who most frequently draws on attachment theory, Parts work/IFS, existential and transpersonal theories, and eco-psychology. I support you in cultivating greater self-compassion, self-understanding, and connecting with the buried parts of yourself that may be longing to tell their stories. While I offer insights, observations, and gentle challenges, my priority is to guide you toward building the skills you need to uncover and connect to your internal sources of strength, insight, intuition, and integrity.

In what ways do your life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap?

In life and in therapy, I believe true healing begins with radical self-compassion and self-understanding. Even the parts of ourselves that seem to cause us the most torment, suffering, and confusion often have their roots in a deep, unmet desire to be safe, held, seen, and loved. Darkness can be as much of a teacher as the lighter aspects of our psyches and our lives - and often, when we bring the darkness to the surface and meet it with curiosity and compassion, we will find that it holds the potential for tremendous beauty, transcendence, and healing for us. It can be difficult, but ultimately it is a beautiful journey. I offer a secure, compassionate container for you as you move through darkness, grief, and suffering, and find your own way up toward the light once more.

What does a first session with you look like?

In our first sessions, I will work to get to know *you* - and yes, that of course includes what is bringing you to therapy, but it also includes learning who you are, what motivates and fulfills you, and what your strengths are. I will ask about your life, your family of origin, your close relationships, and your day-to-day experiences. Different people have different levels of experience and comfort with the therapy process, and I believe in allowing you to move at your own pace. It takes courage to open up to a new person, so we can go at the speed that feels most comfortable to you - and you are invited and encouraged to ask as many questions as you have.
