About Me

Welcome! So your path has brought you here to BetterHelp, it's likely you are looking for some assistance in dealing with something in your life or your current situation and hope to find a person that can offer that assistance. Perhaps you have found that person right here!
Stepping into therapy can be an overwhelming process but finding the right fit for you is one of the most important aspects of making it work. My hope is our work together is that you feel heard, valued, and supported in whatever you are facing.

I work to empower individuals towards being authentic whole beings. I use a strengths-based approach to help find the silver lining. Research has shown that physical mental emotional and spiritual well-being all play equally significant roles and our livelihood. Therefore I have made the holistic approach my central modality when it comes to my therapy.
My style is purposefully eclectic, to best serve your needs as a client. I believe strongly in a collaborative process in designing counseling experiences. You are the expert on you, the techniques we will use may change depending on your style and needs. Every individual is unique, and no one orientation will serve all.

Jessica is a very wonderful person. She's great at helping visualize the things she talks about with you, to help you get a better understanding of things. I highly recommend her, she's extremely friendly and is willing to help you out in any way she can.

She is fantastic. Easy to talk to.

Written by C.O. on Aug 15, 2021 after therapy with Jessica for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

I activated an account on BetterHelp in a time of crisis and with real trepidation about engaging in therapy. Jessica assuaged my anxiety around therapy and helped me out of my crisis and into taking better steps going forward. Jessica showed me the power talk therapy could have on my life. She is wonderful, insightful and kind. So grateful for her guidance and wisdom~

Two weeks in and I am still loving this way of working on myself!

This is the first time I've ever been able to connect with a counselor and actually open up about some of the stuff I've been dealing with. She gets all the first responder stress when I'm overwhelmed and I never feel judged for my mistakes. She understands my thought processes and always supports me with mind-blowing expertise on my quests for better self care/boundaries/time management/etc.

Jessica is both kind and funny, she is not judgemental or pushy, and she is professional and polite. Would recommend to a friend or loved one

Jessica has been wonderful! She has really given me some tools I can use in overwhelming or stressful situations. She helped brainstorm ideas on how to discuss concerns with my loved ones. I would happily reccommend anyone to her.

She is a great counselor. She always checks on me and encourages me, which I greatly appreciate.

Written by T.R. on Jun 11, 2021 after therapy with Jessica for 2 months on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, and grief

Jessica meets me where I’m at. She provides a supportive, safe space for me to show up as I am. Jessica sees and hears me and gives appropriate constructive feedback.

Written by T.H. on May 17, 2021 after therapy with Jessica for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Jessica has been great, she listens and is able to repeat what I feel was a jumbled mess into a well constructed feedback and breakdown. I feel I don't always orate well, but she has been able to understand me and help me to work through my thoughts, giving me time to speak, think, and listen. Jessica is great.

Written by D.E. on May 12, 2021 after therapy with Jessica for 2 weeks on issues concerning addictions, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and anger management

Jessica provides a safe space for me to express my troubling past and how it affects me currently. She has provided literature and tips on how to handle my addiction and reduce the number of times I act out.

Written by I.Z. on Apr 11, 2021 after therapy with Jessica for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and adhd

She was very patient and very kind. She helped my get another perspective on what I'm dealing with, which helps. :)

Written by S.U. on Mar 13, 2021 after therapy with Jessica for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Jessica is patient, kind, understanding and supportive. She's able to understand the concerns I attempt to convey to her, when I'm making a mess of unraveling something and sounding very much as though I've lost my mind. This is done in a knowledgeable, patient way without putting out preconceived ideas that would hinder or confuse my attempts.
While I have no idea how a client is matched to their counselor, this is a perfect match for the help I need. Jessica has been a great blessing,
and im sure she shall continue to be one going foward. Thank you so very much.

Jessica Hirte; Noun: 1) A professional commanding a plethora of understanding and insight. 2) A modern day Zena Warrior Princess who battles the minions of darkness and despair.

Written by H.A. on Mar 01, 2021 after therapy with Jessica for 1 week on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

I liked Jessica's style. I left the session feeling lighter than when it started. I also was able to clarify goals and feel like she will hold me accountable in a kind/compassionate way for my progress. I felt she was empathetic and gave me new and helpful ways of looking at the situations I am dealing with currently.

Written by M.O. on Feb 27, 2021 after therapy with Jessica for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Jessica has an observant and constructive approach during sessions. I feel like I am being seen and heard. On days when therapy feels like a struggle before I even begin, she has a tender approach that leaves me feeling lighter than when I started. Overall, I would say that Jessica is adaptable to the vibe of the day.

Written by L.E. on Feb 21, 2021 after therapy with Jessica for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

I was initially hesitant to accept Jessica because she’s much younger than me and I held a bias about receiving counsel from someone younger than me. But I’m really glad I did. She has been the ideal person to meet me in my struggles, help me organize my thoughts, and implement healthy boundaries to improve relationships. Grateful for her and the groupinars.

Jessica is an attentive listener. She hears my concerns and helps me bridge gaps to reach my goals. I like her style of counseling, and am thankful to be working with her.
