James (JC) Hoye, MFT Intern

Kia ora and welcome! My name is JC Hoye. I’m a Māori-American therapist specializing in working with couples. As a Pacific-Islander, I draw on my cultural background to inform my therapeutic approach.

I received a Bachelor of Psychology in 2018 from Utah State University and am pursuing my Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy from Northcentral University. Before my work as a therapist, I conducted research on addictions and worked in psychosocial rehabilitation, which gives me a unique perspective when working with clients. My therapeutic framework is Narrative Family Therapy, which allows me to help clients explore the stories they tell themselves and re-author them in a way that empowers them.

In my sessions, I create a caring, warm, and non-judgmental environment where clients can feel comfortable sharing their struggles and exploring their emotions. I am a student of my clients, meaning that I listen carefully to their experiences and perspectives to create a customized treatment plan that meets their unique needs.

Outside work, I’m happily married to my best friend and have two wonderful kids. As a family, we love to travel, spend time with our family and friends, and play as hard as possible. I enjoy playing music and running with my kids in my free time.

My goal is to help clients feel seen, heard, and valued, while empowering them to make meaningful changes in their lives and relationships. I believe everyone has the capacity for healing and growth, and I’m honored to be a part of my client’s journeys. If you’re looking for a therapist who can help you navigate your challenges and achieve your goals, I invite you to get in touch.
