Zoe Davis is a licensed mental health professional in California, Washington state, and Nevada, and is a nationally board-certified nutritionist (CNS). She has worked in holistic mental health clinics and integrative psychiatric practices over the last decade and has been honored to support clients through ‘edges’ in their lives that can manifest in emotional, psychological, or physical dis-ease, all deserving of deeply compassionate care. Zoe works internally and externally to be an active ally to her clients from a variety of experiences and backgrounds. She is committed to ongoing anti-racism, feminist, and intrinsic bias work as a therapist, health care practitioner, and human.
Zoe emphasizes nourishment as a multi-layered portal to more optimal health and carries this perspective into her work with clients. This includes exploring biological nourishment, spiritual/creative nourishment, social/cultural nourishment, and emotional/psychological nourishment as each can offer an important piece to feeling more deeply “well”.
Zoe attended Antioch University Seattle where she earned a Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling, as well as the University of Western States in Portland where she earned a Master of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine. Additionally, she holds certifications in Nutritional Psychology and Integrative Medicine for Mental Health and has completed post-graduate training in trauma, somatic therapy, mindfulness, implicit bias, and disordered eating.
Given that a practitioner's life as a human influences their perspective with clients, there are personal aspects of Zoe's experience that inform her work with clients and may be important for clients to know. These include being a queer-identified, cis-female, a mother through adoption, and experience in multicultural relationships. Additionally, she has an extensive history in performing arts and physical movement, and deeply appreciates creative outlets as a means to self expression and self knowing.
Zoe's unique combination of experience and education includes:
Using a caring, positive, self-embracing approach, Zoe encourages clients to hold a lens of curiosity instead of judgment towards themselves to more fully understand how to move forward in an honest, self-loving way.
