My name is Jessie and I have been working with children, teens, and adults in goal-directed, individual therapy for over 6 years. I specialize in working with depression, anxiety, and trauma and I am in the process of becoming a TF-CBT (trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy) certified provider. I utilize many modalities in my treatment but have most experience with talk therapy, CBT, art therapy, goal-directed/solution-focused therapy, and game therapy. I happily incorporate different approaches in my therapy style to best support you.
I enjoy helping individuals change his/her cognitions to function in a healthier way. I balance listening, understanding, and questioning to help you find your best solution. I utilize education to help the client gain insight about potential changes to improve daily life, relationships, emotional control, and (most importantly): happiness!
I am open to feedback and believe that therapy is client directed. My preference is for continual goal evaluation to measure successes and define challenges. I provide a safe and understanding place for clients to explore and express themselves. I look forward to helping you define and achieve your goals.

I like her a lot she is very sweet and no matter what I want to talk about I feel like she understands so I give her a big thank you.
I have been needing someone to ventilate to since there are a lot of things my eldest sister does to make my life hard. A lot of times people are not interested or don't want to hear it because it is distressing.
I guess for some people it can be too much exposure to negative things.
I hope my counsellor copes well with it and has the necessary support required. I don't always expect a solution...but this site also acts as a journal as well. I would be less likely to write a journal without an objective outlook on it.
Jesse has helped me process emotions and memories, which had been hindering my every day life. I am very happy with the counseling she has offered and am so pleased at how our sessions have been helping me function and move on from the past. She listens carefully and speaks without judgement and is a very positive influence on my life. Thank you!
