Jessica has been so helpful, especially when dealing with subtle symptoms of anxiety. Jessica has been an incredible help in guiding me to the solutions I needed for balance in my life, both at home and professionally. She has also been a wonderful resource as I navigate being a parent and all the doubts and anxiety that come with that.
Jessica is so personable and warm and welcoming, you will almost feel like you’re talking to a good friend - but one that’s going to hold you accountable as well.
