Hi there! My name is Jessa (she/her). I hold a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Colorado, and I’m currently completing my master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling at Seattle University. My passion for this work began through my own transformative journey with mental health, and I feel immense gratitude to now walk alongside others on their path to wellness, empowerment, and healing. 

As a therapist, I believe that we all deserve to feel seen, heard, and supported. I am dedicated to cultivating a therapeutic space of safety, honesty, and authenticity for you to show up as you are.  I work from a holistic and social justice-oriented lens, which recognizes that systems and identities play a significant role in our experiences of self and wellness. I believe it’s vital to examine the impact of the systems that have and continue to surround us, and place emphasis on the power of our family systems, and the way our earliest relational experiences have created a blueprint for how we navigate the world.    

I value the power of a collaborative therapeutic relationship and am committed to building an alliance grounded in respect, trust, and non-judgement.  While honoring your pace and preferences, our work will focus on the areas that are causing you to feel stuck, disempowered, distressed. In doing so, we can make room to move towards healing, growth, and fulfillment.  While the tools and techniques that I may utilize will depend on what resonates best with you and your therapeutic goals, I may draw from theoretical approaches such as psychodynamic theories, attachment theory, emotionally focused therapy, narrative therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy.
