More About Jessica

Human First

I believe through sharing parts of who we are with one another we find the confidence to grow and be more our selves. Knowing someone's story helps us connect, build empathy, inspires healing, and can nudge us toward a radically more honest and awesome world. I will always prioritize confidentiality in the therapy space while also being my full authentic self.

Water Ripple

I became a school counselor because of the sudden loss of my father, during my first week of high school, at the age of 14. As I grieved and tried to navigate the world without my Dad I leaned heavily on my school counselor for support, attending peer groups, one on one sessions, and still barley making it through the day.

 

I am thankful to have experienced grief, and to have found profound meaning in my fathers passing. My school counselor truly was there for me in one of the hardest moments of my life and inspired me to show up to support my students and clients today.
