Collaborating Wellness

Janice LaFountaine

I am a marriage and family therapist. I work with spiritually open-minded clients who are willing to use some form of meditation or mindfulness practice for self-care between sessions.  I specialize in working with PTSD, complex trauma, and relationship difficulties.  My goal is to create a space that will provide a gateway to hope and an invitation to believe in yourself and your worthiness to be happy, loved, and respected.

I have advanced training in EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) which is used to assist people with PTSD, complex trauma, and childhood trauma. I also specialize in working with couples and individuals with relationship problems, grief, loneliness, or a desire to have more fulfilling relationships

I have been meditating for over 20 years and would consider myself to be very spiritual.  I can assist with meditation questions and am well versed in this area. No matter your spiritual beliefs, they are welcome. I tend to be more progressive in this area. This includes more non-traditional or non-mainstream beliefs.  It is my goal that you feel accepted and safe. Bringing what is sacred into our therapy space can be a powerful catalyst for healing.

My hours are Mon -Thurs from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. I take several insurance plans, or if you do not have insurance, you can contact me at 509-590-5922 for any questions about my sliding scale fees and/or to schedule an appointment.
