About me

I love working with persons going through life transitions and the LGBTQ+ community. I have a passion for working with couples of all backgrounds including poly couples looking for connection and peace. I also work closely with women in and out of relationships.

Are you seeking a therapist who can provide an atmosphere where you feel comfortable enough to vent, find relief, and explore your story– however unconventional it may be? Do you crave a space where you can find yourself or be encouraged to be the expert on your life while being held accountable for your goals? If you want to live a life that aligns with your values or true identity while communicating and reinforcing your boundaries, I can help you get there. Together, using strength-based and person-centered therapy with a psychodynamic touch (and a healthy dose of humor), we can build a bond and begin your journey to building the confidence to be who you want to be. Finally feel self-assured in your value and speak up for what you want in your life, relationships, and career.

I also come from a military family that has been located throughout the United States, allowing me the opportunity to meet people from varying backgrounds. This has contributed to my ability to become more culturally competent when working with clients.

If you’re ready to build a happy, thriving life while being true to yourself, let’s chat today.

When I’m not in therapist mode, I’m...

Jasmine is amazing I’m glad she is my therapist

Jasmine gets the issues I’m going through. She gives me the space to talk and asks great follow up questions. I feel like I can be completely honest with them.

Jasmine is phenomenal. They are kind, approachable, intuitive, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. I feel better about myself, my life, my grief, and my ability to tackle life's challenges after 4 months in their care. My recommendation couldn't be higher.

Jasmine is great! Jasmine is extremely personable, easy to talk to, and a good listener. I’ve had several therapists through the years and Jasmine has been the most relatable.

Jasmine has been very helpful in identifying behaviors and patterns that contribute to my anxiety. I feel much more in control of my life and that she's been a huge help in that aspect.
