Dr. Jessica Kaffer, PsyD

Clinical Psychologist & CEO

Dr. Kaffer is a licensed Clinical Psychologist and a mother of three little girls. She earned her doctorate degree in Clinical psychology (PsyD) from Midwestern University and completed an internship working in community mental health in Flagstaff, Arizona. During her postdoctoral residency, she created and lead an intensive outpatient treatment program for military members at a local psychiatric hospital. She has taught multiple graduate level courses and serves as a certified supervisor for the Arizona Board of Behavioral health.

Although initially Dr. Kaffer's heart and focus was pursuing specialty trainings specific to trauma treatment for first responders and members of the armed forces, her interests shifted when she became a mother. After experiencing her own struggles in pregnancy and postpartum and noticing a general lack of resources and education, Dr. Kaffer redirected her love and attention to providing support and treatment to moms in every stage of motherhood. Now Dr. Kaffer provides virtual psychotherapy sessions to moms in need nationwide as a certified Perinatal Mental Health Specialist (PMH-C) and a PsyPACT credentialed provider. Dr. Kaffer believes women do not have to sacrifice themselves to have a happy and functional family because it is not about saying "Me first" it is about saying "Me too." 

For fun, Dr. Kaffer loves traveling and spending time with her husband and three little girls. Watching her girls learn new skills and explore is one of her greatest joys! She also likes cooking new (and easy) recipes, crafting, dancing, and spending (very rare) moments with good friends!

Diane Wagner, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Diane is a wife, mother of 3, and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Arizona and Florida. She approaches therapy from a trauma informed and cognitive behavioral perspective. She has extensive experience with a wide variety of mental health concerns among individuals and families in the inpatient, outpatient, and private practice setting. She brings a warm and empathic understanding to all of her interactions and she places great value on the input of her clients throughout their healing and growth process.

Diane is not afraid of changing the course of treatment or shifting gears - wellness is an ever-changing journey that looks different for each person. She sees you as the specialist in your life, using a collaborative process and holistic tools to support you toward the peace and healing you seek. She believes that your mental and emotional well-being is the foundation that serves you in life. Although life may seem uneasy right now, addressing your needs should not be seen as a selfish act, but rather a path to self-preservation. Reaching out for support is not always easy and getting the help you desire is her highest priority.

Having fun is an essential part of living! Diane loves exploring the outdoors, a long beach day, reading, meditation, homeschooling and free play with her kids, and spending quality time with her husband.
