Professional statement

Jasper Wurster is a licensed counselor remotely practicing in Michigan and Illinois. They specialize in LGBTQIA2+ issues, life transitions, gender identity and transgender issues, relationship issues, anxiety, trauma, and grief. They are also equipped to work with folks experiencing suicidal ideation, self-harm without suicidal intent, perfectionistic tendencies, religious trauma, OCD tendencies, and Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) concerns. He is well-versed in clinical work with folks who have lived identities such as LGBTQIA2+, genderqueer, gender non-conforming, transgender non-binary, neurodivergent, autistic, ADHD, AuDHDer, non-monogamous, polyamorous, BIPOC, and bi-racial/multi-racial.

Jasper often provides therapeutic support to folks who are mental health professionals, parents, artists, performers, entrepreneurs, college students, and those who are discovering who they wish to become in the world. Mental health professionals seeking therapy have opportunities to gain psychoeducational material to enhance their coping skills outside of therapy while receiving exceptional therapeutic care.

Jasper has more than 10 years of clinical work, using relational, humanistic, harm-reductive, existential, and Adlerian approaches with specialized training in Internal Family Systems and Art Therapy/Art as Therapy. Honesty, authenticity, and curiosity shape the context of all approaches.

Jasper is available to see clients via telehealth Mondays through Thursdays in the afternoon to late evening. Fridays and weekends are available when usual office hours are unavailable or for new client requests.


Message to clients

Finding a therapist that doesn't require you to explain your identity can enhance your therapy from the start. As someone who embodies many unique lived identities, I provide opportunities for folks to be genuine and open in session at the beginning and explore concerns with curiosity and sensitivity.

A new client can expect sessions to be warm and inviting, with flexibility in navigating sessions at the pace that best fit your needs. For those seeking structure and accountability, expect to take work into your hands with regular check ins with progress and support while refining your goals and dreams. Talking about your day and your past can reveal patterns in your daily actions and thoughts to give you the insight to create new ways to enhance your life today.
