Professional statement

Jesse works with teens and adults experiencing stress and burnout, using a scientific approach to whole-body self-care.

Jesse is a collaborative and active therapist who works with the person who on the surface appears to “have it together,” but is feeling the effects of burnout on a physical and emotional level. She helps her clients develop self-care habits that actually work by blending a holistic approach with her background in psychological research. Jesse often works with young adults managing chronic illnesses. She also supports LGBTQ+ questioning teens safely explore their identities. In her work with couples, Jesse helps those navigating non-traditional relationship styles. Jesse’s work is grounded in the belief that well-being encompasses the spiritual, emotional, and biological aspects of the human experience.

Jesse’s warm, open and interactive nature helps her clients feel supported and empowered to reach their goals. She utilizes Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), somatic, and Positive Psychology techniques. She specializes in trauma and LGBTQ+-specific concerns, and her work is trauma literate, sex/body positive, spiritually open, LGBTQ+ affirming, and kink/sex-worker allied.

Message to clients

If you find yourself saying things like, “laundry shouldn’t be this hard” or “I can’t believe I’ve been doom scrolling for 4 hours,” you’re definitely not alone. Maybe your house is a mess but you’re so stressed about it you can’t start cleaning. Maybe you and your partner are looking to open up the relationship but are struggling to communicate boundaries. Or, maybe you're questioning your sexual identity and are simply tired of living inauthentically. When you’re feeling hopeless, helpless, or just plain stuck, therapy can provide understanding and meaningful change for your life.

I love working with couples and adults exploring non-traditional relationships, as well as teens and adults dealing with stress and anxiety. My approach to therapy is about giving you space to be unapologetically you, no filter needed. My work strives to be trauma literate, sex/body positive, spiritually open, LGBTQ affirming, and kink/sex-worker allied.

Whether you feel like parts of you are on different pages, or your past unhealthy relationships are leaking into your present ones, you're in the right place. Please reach out via text, email, or phone call for a free consultation.
