Hello, my name is Jody and I am an OUT TRANSGENDER FEMALE living in Columbus, Ohio. I am here to help you with your mental health concerns, Especially if you are struggling with SEXUALITY or GENDER. I'm an LISW-S here in Ohio. I came out publicly as a Transgender female in 2014 (whew!), and have experience with the emotional, physical, social & spiritual aspects of gender transition. My primary focus on Better Help is to work with TRANSGENDER/GENDER QUEER PEOPLE Ages 18+ who are LOOKING FOR LETTERS RELATED TO GENDER TRANSITION. I can ALSO Work with PARTNERS OF TRANS PEOPLE. That is what I have time for and Better Help is one way to give back to the LGBTQIA community that I am a part of. Thank you!

I highly recommend Jody for anyone struggling with LGBT and codependency issues. She is a great listener and validating. She helped me feel heard in a non-judgmental space and make better decisions for myself.

Jody is great! She listens, understands, and supports me without telling me what to do. She knows I have the answers inside of me, and that lets me know that too!

Jody is absolutely amazing! She treated me like a friend more than just another client. Jody listened to all of my concerns and helped me navigate issues by reminding me what was important to me. I am so glad I found her and connected with her.

Jody has been exceptional to work with. I appreciate her encouragement as well as her availability via messenger. She has been exactly the guiding hand I needed, compassionate, knowledgable, and has also walked the path which I am currently on now. That is absolutely invaluable to me. I also find her easy to talk to and a very effective and direct communicator.
