Professional statement

Jeremy Mays is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist based in Walla Walla, WA, who works with adolescents and adults addressing anxiety, depression, grief, relationship issues and difficult life transitions. He is intentional about establishing safe space for clients to explore their values, goals and agency for realizing personal growth. His work stems from a rooted optimism in our human capacity for empathy and change—for the betterment of ourselves and others.

Jeremy’s work draws primarily from Narrative Therapy practices—an approach that helps clients identify and nurture overlooked personal strengths, highlight their community of allies and work to broaden personal agency and resourcefulness. Jeremy is sensitive to the oppression and dominance that problems can hold over our lives. He assists clients through conversations that help them subvert problems, create space for hope and craft and empower life preferences.

Jeremy’s work is collaborative, embracing his clients’ expertise about lived experiences and relationships. He prioritizes transparency in session documentation and incorporates the practice of therapeutic letter writing to better track and enrich progress towards client identified goals.

In addition to his training and experience as a therapist Jeremy also has a background in visual design and digital project management. He understands the stressors of work within the technical services industry and is sensitive to the importance of providing safe and comfortable space for students and professionals to prioritize life over work.

Message to clients

Therapy should not be yet another place where you feel the weight of judgement, or evaluation—but instead a safe space where you feel greater freedom to explore and identify the details of life that may feel entangling and option narrowing. The work you and I do together will be collaborative and sensitive to your needs and concerns. My intention is to create a comfortable and optimal space for you to name and work towards the goals that inspired your search for a therapist. Your life is important and I look forward to working with you.

My best,

Jeremy Mays, LMFT
