Jaryn Warren, LMFT, C.E.A.P.
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Certified Expressive Arts Practitioner
Jaryn has a very warm and collaborative approach to therapy. She often incorporates creativity, Mindfulness, humor and skill building exercises and techniques into her sessions, to help clients achieve more growth and greater steps toward healing. She believes” You are not your problems. You are not your medical diagnosis. You are simply, YOU!”. Jaryn’s passion is working with those coping with chronic illness and assisting women and adolescent girls in enhancing their capacity for self love, self- compassion, self-acceptance and improving overall self- esteem, while walking along side her clients and guiding them on their journey of healing from past trauma. Jaryn often helps clients identify personal values and enhance their strengths, and her hope is that each client can walk away from their sessions with more tools and hope than what they arrived with.

Jaryn has over 9 years of experience providing counseling and/or mentor-ship to individuals, youth and families within the community and specializes in treating self-esteem issues, trauma, adjusting to chronic pain/illness, women’s issues, post- partum concerns and disordered eating. Jaryn is trained in EMDR (researched based approach for treating trauma) certified as an Expressive Arts Practitioner, and has completed training in Mindful Eating (e.g. Mindfulness Based- Eating Awareness training: MB-EAT and Eat for Life). Jaryn is currently in the process of completing training in the Trauma Conscious Yoga Method (TCYM) and training to receive a 200 hr certificate as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) / Yahweh Yoga Instructor, in hopes to provide more holistic treatment of trauma through Yoga/body based approaches and art.
