Welcome!

Do any of these sound like you?

  • You keep getting in the way of your own success- you can’t seem to follow through on meeting your personal and professional goals
  • Your own stuff keeps coming up in sessions with clients and you know you need to process it
  • You want to understand who you are and how you work, but your internal world feels too overwhelming, dark, or difficult
  • You want your life to be different, but you’re not sure what you need or even what that might look like
  • You are starting to feel burned out, overwhelmed, and stressed to the point where the smallest things feel huge
  • Your strong emotions and intense reactions are connected to the things that have happened to you, but you just don’t know how to move past them

If so, you’re not alone

You need a supportive therapist who knows how to work with other therapists. It’s hard to step into the therapeutic frame from the client side when you spend most of your week being the professional in the room. Therapists are great at defending their vulnerabilities and keeping neutral through really tough stuff. You need a place to just be a client and feel heard, understood, and helped.

In sessions with me, you’ll have space to explore your thoughts, emotions, and body sensations. Through this healing relationship, you’ll learn to pay attention to what’s going on inside and create gentle changes.

As we get to know each other, our sessions will be a secure place for you to explore challenging concepts, heal areas of shame, and develop trust in yourself and your capacity for healthy relationships. This process can be uncomfortable, but I’m with you every step of the way. We’ll go at your pace to make sure we’re challenging your old habits while creating new ones.

Let me introduce myself

My name is Jessica Brohmer and I’m a licensed psychotherapist living in the Monterey Bay Area. I became a therapist to help people explore their inner worlds, understand their experience, manage their mental health, and have healthy relationships with others.

When you learn to check in with yourself and understand yourself, you can fully show up with your authentic thoughts and emotions without feeling overwhelmed or controlled by them.

The process of self discovery and healing can be long, but I am here to support you. I’ve helped hundreds of people just like you to get comfortable with their thoughts and feelings, develop comfort and trust in their relationships, notice patterns and insights, and make meaningful changes that create peace and calm.

What are EMDR and ACT?

Online EMDR Therapy

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. I am trained in the SAFE method of EMDR which incorporates a somatic and attachment focus to the standard EMDR methods. This kind of therapy focuses on healing memories that are affecting your life today. Many people like EMDR because it can help even when you don’t exactly know why you’re having these issues. Learn more about EMDR and how it works here.

Online ACT Therapy

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy helps you develop the psychological flexibility to navigate what comes up in life. The process is collaborative, and we’ll work together to decide how we’ll move forward to your goals. We’ll explore your inner world together in a safe, non-judgmental space. As we connect with your pain in a safe environment, you’ll learn to approach your thoughts and emotions with compassion and kindness. Learn more about ACT therapy here.

Courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life.
