In the therapy room, Jessi isn’t one to tiptoe around the challenging topics. She’s experienced in navigating the turbulent waters of crisis, domestic violence, and suicidal thoughts. With a background working in intensive settings, she’s mastered the art of staying grounded when the stakes are high, making her an invaluable support for teens, athletes, and first responders who often grapple with high-intensity challenges.
Jessi combines evidence-based approaches with a dose of humor, advocating that therapy isn’t just about feeling better, but being better at feeling. She believes in the power of the present – the “here and now” – and emphasizes that our daily actions craft the narrative of our lives.
At her core, Jessi is about pursuing wholeness over perfection. She’s quick to remind clients that growth is a journey, and sometimes that journey involves taking a hard look in the mirror. With a certificate in trauma-informed care, her approach ensures she recognizes and addresses deep-seated pain with sensitivity and expertise.
Jessi enjoys working with kids, using experiential elements and hands-on activities. She taps into their natural energy and curiosity, making therapy a space where they can explore, learn, and be themselves.
Jessi is a firm believer that life should be filled with meaning and significance. Her mantra? Pain might be unavoidable, but suffering is optional. If you’re looking for someone to challenge you, yet stand steadfastly by your side, Jessi’s your therapist. She’ll help you navigate the rough patches and find the significance in each step.
