Her primary goal is to create a safe space that will allow her clients to feel accepted and heard, while simultaneously feeling challenged to develop healthier coping skills. Her approach to therapy is inclusive, LGBTQIA positive, and culturally affirming. Jess has worked with individuals from various backgrounds with concerns ranging from chronic mental health issues, substance use, macro and micro aggressions, sexuality/gender identity issues to those coping with stress.
