Jonnali Mayberry earned a Master of Arts in counseling psychology in 2011, from The Seattle School and she is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Washington (license number LH 60547886).
She also earned a Master of Science in family, youth, and community science in 2006. Before training to be a therapist, she taught relationship skills to parents, couples, and youth.
Jonnali completed her graduate internship with Atlantic Street Center, an agency providing community mental health services to primarily youth of color in South Seattle schools. After earning her counseling degree, she completed over 3,000 supervised hours of community mental health providing individual and group therapy in the city of Philadelphia for primarily Black African American children and their families in schools, homes, and in an outpatient clinic. In Seattle, she has worked as a therapist in capacities ranging from therapeutic day treatment for 0 to 5 year olds to transitional housing for families reunifying after incarceration.
Jonnali's work in community mental health has informed her decision to create her private practice for the community of Seattle, a city in flux. As a woman of color of mixed heritage, she is personally and professionally passionate about equity and justice, especially in regards to healthcare and education. Her 10 years of experience providing education and therapy for children and young adults, primarily from families with low-income, has provided her with the social justice lens she has today. Jonnali is committed to growing in understanding of the intersections between race, culture, therapeutic treatment and outcomes to maintain relevance to those she serves, no matter their background.
In 2013, Jonnali completed the Doulas of North America (DONA) Doula training with Debra Pascali-Bonaro and The University of Pennsylvania's Women's Health Center. Offering doula services to mothers- and families-to-be is another joy of hers in connecting her attachment-focus and emotional support practice with the beautiful process of birth.
In 2015, Jonnali completed The Post-Graduate Attachment Focused-Therapy Certificate program through Deborah Gray's Nurturing Attachments with a focus on adoption and she has also trained in the modality of Lifespan Integration. She is a member of Multicultural Counselors of Seattle as well as the Northwest Psychoanalytic Society. She continues to pursue clinical training in a number of mental health areas, particularly around identity, attachment, and trauma treatment.
Jonnali enjoys learning more about mind-body connection and regularly practices yoga. She also enjoys seeing live comedy, walking in nature, playing the djembe, and traveling near and far with her family.
