Jessica Seebeck, LCSW, RYT-200, TCYM
For more than a decade I've practiced meditation and mindfulness and received my own therapy work to support my own healing journey. I believe it is important to display honesty and transparency to demonstrate my own belief and passion for this work, personally and professionally.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW, with a Master's in Social Work and a Bachelors in Counseling. I am a 200-HR Registered Yoga Teacher with advanced certification in the Trauma-Conscious Yoga Method, where I currently volunteer as a Teaching Assistant.
My background and education allow me to help identify deeply-rooted beliefs and transform them through embodied approaches of EMDR, IFS, and body-oriented techniques. I am passionate about the effectiveness of "bottom-up" approaches to healing. “Bottom-up” is just a way of recognizing that often, traumatic moments, feelings, thoughts, and maladaptive beliefs get stored in the body AND the mind. To fully heal, we must restore safety in the body and can not always rely on 'talking' or ‘thinking’ our way to healing.
I have significant experience working with teenagers, young adults, and adults in a variety of settings including community mental health, therapeutic foster care, middle and high school systems, and an eating disorder residential and outpatient center.
I have experience teaching yoga in a traditional yoga studio setting, within a high school classroom, and in an afterschool program with elementary-aged students. My approach and style are focused on restoring safety in the body, regulating the nervous system, and teaching people techniques that they can take with them outside of the sessions.
