About Me

Hi, I'm Jacqueline Bush


My journey into wellness and spirituality began fourteen years ago when I decided to seek therapy for myself.

The process helped me discover my path and recognize any negative behavioral patterns that were a hindrance to my personal growth.

I gained deep insight into how much support and behavioral/thought reconditioning I actually needed, but it wasn't until years later when I discovered the essential missing piece that changed everything: creating secure attachment. I believe the root of our issues lie in our attachment imprinting, and through this lens one's world can truly change.

My background experience

  • Graduated with a Master’s of Clinical psychology from Antioch University

  • Somatic Attachment Certification from the Embody Lab, with Dan Siegel and Peter Levine

  • Grief training and certification through Claire Bidwell Smith

  • Experience in addiction recovery with surf therapy through Seaside Recovery

  • DBT basics through Dr. Wendy Barlin

  • Pain Reprocessing Certification (evidence-based chronic pain healing) through the PRT group

  • Experience with children through Coeur d’Alene Elementary School

  • Experience with couples, teens, and individuals through the AUCC

Who/what do I specialize in working with?

I strongly believe in a fully comprehensive approach to healing for lasting change. There are certain parts of the brain that traditional talk therapy does not quite heal, yet newer modalities such as somatic therapy, and EMDR can be very effective for integrating and healing traumatic events that have happened to you.

I am very passionate about the mind-body approach and more progessive techniques. I have received specialized training in EMDR, somatics, and grief. While newer to my skill set, I am also training in the highly effective DBT under my supervisor, Cheryl Tarnofsky.

I am so passionate about working with client's on attachment repair and grief. If you are frustrated with your relationships, whether single or in partnership, or dealing with the loss of a loved one, I am your person. I love to work with couples, families, and of course, individuals.

What do I do when I’m not doing therapy?

I enjoy spending time at the beach.
