About me

Hi, I'm Jodi Paris. I'm a licensed marriage & family therapist in both California and Florida. Over the last 25 years, I have helped my clients improve their lives and become the best version of themselves. By utilizing various therapy techniques, I increase my clients confidence, personal strengths, self esteem, resilience, as well as strengthen their relationships . My style of therapy is warm and personal. I believe in treating every individual with respect, sensitivity, and compassion while building a strong trustworthy rapport. Together, we will come up with goals and solutions that are going to work best for you, so that you can overcome the personal hurdles which are stopping you from achieving what you want and desire.

I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, cooking, meditation, and reading books in genres like psychology and romance.

I have experience in helping clients with relationship issues, parenting issues, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, & career difficulties. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

Jodi has helped reinforced positive thinking and helped me recognize patterns and situations to where I can reframe things. She is friendly and attentive. I also appreciate how she helps challenge thoughts and provides reflection for my journey.

Jodi is a wonderful therapist. By speaking with her, I found a life path in a time of hardship, I grew closer with myself and with my loved ones, she taught me how to balance self-care and helping others, and how to say “no” when it’s the hardest yet most important to. I would recommend her to anyone, especially if you’re ready to be guided without being directly advised, so as to learn how to apply everything that she teaches you on your own once you’re ready.

Jodi has been an immense help to me. I was deeply struggling emotionally when I first started our sessions. She's given me many tools to help me get back on track. I'm feeling tremendously better due to her helpful advice and patient listening. I'm very grateful for her!

Ever since the covid pandemic I have had multiple therapists online due to the conditions at the time limiting in person visits and discovered Better Help. Outside of that, I’ve been in an out of therapy for 12 years and Jodie has been the most helpful therapist I’ve worked with since my very first one when I was 16. I feel heard, understood and respected when addressing my challenges- as I am navigating my challenges in our sessions, Jodie will direct our conversations to areas she sees that are worth addressing and developing further. I’ve had therapists, both in person and online, that have been dismissive and minimizing of my challenges… this has never been the case with Jodie. This is the first time I’ve felt empowered through therapy to approach my challenges and I leave each session feeling equipped with the appropriate tools to tackle my obstacles. Therapy truly is for everyone, it just comes down to having the right therapist… and Jodie is definitely that therapist for me.
