Jessica is wonderful! She was patient, understandintg, and intuitive about the nature of certain relationships in my life as well as opportunities for my own personal growth. I took away a lot from our sessions!

Jessica and I have only met a couple of times so we do not know each other that well. So far she has been helpful in steering my thoughts in more productive directions. I specifically asked for someone comfortable with therapy regarding transgender topics, and Jessica is perfect in that area, since her work with me is uncluttered by social judgement and she can get directly to the heart of my stuck places from a human standpoint, rather than any specific kind of human.

Jessica comes at our discussions with compassion and nonjudgement, but offers valuable observations and insights. She listens well and asks thoughtful and productive questions to probe into tough topics.
