My Approach to Helping
Jessie is a Licensed Associate Counselor committed to treating individuals and families. Jessie has over ten years of experience providing support to individuals and families learning to regulate their emotions and improve communication skills in the school, clinic and home setting. Jessie's areas of focus include: societal pressures, self-esteem issues, anxiety, depression, stress, disability and relationship issues. She wants to help you see that past experiences may help you have a better understanding of your present but they do not define you. Jessie offers empathy, compassion and occasionally some laughter. She will work with you to pay attention to your needs and honor them.
Jessie uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help clients understand their thought patterns and discover where their behaviors and thoughts stem from. Discovering new ways of looking at things helps us learn how to respond differently and improve situations. Jessie also uses somatic experience therapy tools to help clients be more grounded and to regulate the nervous system. Jessie believes in focusing on daily habits that will support change and that each person requires a treatment plan that is unique to them.
Creating meaningful change in your life takes work, Jessie wants to help you or your family along the way.
