My name is Jessica Hancock. I am a naturopathic physician practicing in Shoreline, Washington. I am deeply curious about how chronic stress affects our physical health. I utilize Focusing as a tool in my medical practice to help patients better understand their individual nervous system responses. Through focusing, patients can build trust in their inner wisdom, stay curious about changes that most support their health and wellbeing, and create life forward practices with an emphasis on thriving. I practice out of my office and also provide telehealth visits. More about Jessica at www.mapleleafnaturopathy.com

Prepare for a shift

Our world is changing! Old patterns don’t fit so well. It’s easy to rebel against what no longer fits, but that leads to the polarization we see each day in the news. At SFI we believe that Focusing offers a way to think and express oneself freshly by creating new patterns of experiencing and relating. As a community we support each other’s growing edge and professional development.
