Amazing insight, intelligent, caring and professional. Helped me tremendously
I have been working with Jesse for 3 months and she has seen me through one of the hardest times in my life. Her insight and encouragement have been instrumental to my growth and processing of my situation. Kind, honest and real.
Jesse connected very deeply to understand me. She helped me understand myself and the people around me. Helped me heal from mental abuse. She is amazing and has such a wonderful heart.
Jesse has been great so far. She gets to the point and is very supportive.
Very good - 5 stars
Jesse is simply amazing! I came into therapy, with a vague idea of the conflicts that I was dealing with in my head, but it was with Jesse that I was able to sort things out and really get to the route of things. She helped me better understand myself and my surroundings, taking time to praise me for my successes, and to pick me up in my hardship. She offers brilliant points of view on multiple topics, always asking questions that truly make you think about how you feel and why you feel that way. I truly cannot thank her enough for the time she spent with me, and the effort, and genuine emotion and care that she put forth to help me get better!
Jesse is very good at asking the right questions to make me examine a situation. I appreciate her insights and range of techniques and coping mechanisms she employs.
Jesse is non-judgemental and easy to talk to. Would reccomend!
In two months of weekly sessions with Jesse I've learnt to deal in a much healthier way with my stress and depression. She is straight to the point and very practical. She is a great listener and is great about asking thoughtful questions that disarm your unhealthy/unhelpful thoughts. She also helped me work through some career and communication difficulties. She's a genuinely lovely and down-to-earth person that's just very easy to talk to.
In a few weeks, I learnt several techniques and tricks that I believe will help me deal with stress and depression throughout my life.
I was reluctant to try counseling again, let alone from a website, but I was connected with Jesse and my mind has completely changed. Jesse is a great listener and is really good at figuring me out. From the first session, Jesse got right into learning about me to help me open up. I don’t feel uncomfortable or awkward with her and she always gives me valuable feedback. I’ve only had 2 sessions with Jesse, but I’m eager to continue my therapy with her.
Going on almost a month so far and I love Jesse so much. Can’t wait to keep working with her on my trauma, etc.
With just the few sessions I had with Jesse she has definitely opened my eyes to a lot of things that I didn't know I had trouble with. I look forward to every session with her because I learn something new everyday (◡‿◡✿) She's helped me so much so far & has made me feel comfortable with sharing my traumas. I wouldn't trade her for anybody else.
Appreciate all of her advice and willing to listen and help me through a difficult time
Very helpful, would recommend.
In the short time I have been talking with Jesse, she has made me feel comfortable and it genuinely feels like she cares. She’s the first counselor/therapist that I have felt completely comfortable with.
