My Approach to Helping

Are you looking for a therapist that understands what it is like to be queer? Or a therapist that can help you navigate the ups and downs of non-traditional relationships or family styles? You deserve therapy that is affirming and judgement-free while working through difficulties with communication, intimacy, mental health, sleep, eating, addiction, career stress, gender dysphoria, andor transitioning. You deserve therapy that is easily accessible through computer or phone by video or phone call.

I am JJ (Jessica Jarrard), a licensed mental health therapist and owner of Rainbow Counseling and Consultation, a practice that specializes in affirmative therapy for LGBTQ+ people, couples, families, and allies. We use evidence-based therapies like cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing while helping you grow your strengths and pride in your identity.

If you have arrived at my page, you are already doing the work at building awareness and readiness to make positive changes. If you would like help keeping that momentum going, please reach out to me to ask about scheduling a free 15 minute consultation.

More Info About My Practice

Rainbow Counseling & Consultation LLC is a small private practice of passionate, knowledgable and competent mental health therapists serving LGBTQ+ individuals, couples, families, and allies living in Massachusetts and abroad.. We also provide Diversity and Social Equity training, LGBTQ+ competency training, clinical supervision and consultation to other professionals. We aim to make the world more inclusive and advocate for those that need access to effective mental health services.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Many of our LGBTQ+ clients report having a negative experience with a mental health provider and seek Rainbow Counseling out as a positive, affirming therapy experience afterwards. We are a small team of mental health professionals dedicating to helping you. We strongly believe that for therapy to be effective, the therapist has to meet the client where they are at and want to go, not the other way around. We offer support, not judgement.
