Inertia Dewitt, AMFT 106572
I am an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist working under the supervision of Malaika Hill-Jones, LMFT. I am a firm believer of the innate healing power within the body and I help clients tap into this process through use of somatic and expressive-art therapies. I have experience working with clients recovering from trauma, depression, anxiety and life-transitions, as well as and populations living with severe and persistent mental health diagnoses. I am skilled in facilitating group therapy processes for anger management, women’s empowerment, and social-emotional skills for youth.
My credentials include a BA in Theater Arts with a concentration in Dance, an MFA in Dance with a focus in somatic practices, and most recently an MA in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Depth Psychology. I am also a Registered Yoga Teacher with over 200 hours of training and 8 years teaching experience. As a performance artist, I have had the opportunity to bridge my experience as a mental health practitioner with my creative work by teaching workshops and residencies on the transformational power of embodying courage to women ages 12 to 65.
Malaika Hill-Jones, LMFT
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist who currently has offices in Sacramento, Elk Grove, and Roseville. I have spent the last five years working for a non-profit mental health clinic that served the Placer County area. While working there I gained experience working with a variety of treatment modalities, including individual, couples, families, and groups.
I've had the opportunity to work with people dealing with various types of trauma, depression, anxiety, life transitions, and other mental health issues. I am skilled in facilitating therapy groups and have facilitated parenting education, anger management, and domestic violence groups.
I enjoy collaborating with others in an effort to reach their stated goals and an improved quality of life. I would describe my style as eclectic, as I like to pull from various orientations depending on the presenting issues and client's stated goals. I’m working toward my brainspotting certification and am excited by the results I am seeing using brainspotting to help clients heal from their trauma.
$80 - $120 Per 50-Minute Individual Session
$150 Per Brainspotting Session (typically session 90 mins)
$140 Per 60-90 Minute Family and Couple Session
$30-$50 for Group Sessions

I cannot guarantee reimbursement for my services, but your plan may cover a portion or all of the cost of treatment, depending on your type of coverage. Please contact your insurance company for detailed information about compensation for my services. *Interns are not able to bill insurance companies so all payments would be out-of-pocket for those sessions.
