CEO, Senior Clinician
My name is Jessie (she/her) and I can help you move forward.
"I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become." - Carl Jung
Many people have had scary or terrible things happen to them; trauma isn't just what happens to you - it's how you experience it.
Maybe - as is the case with many others - you haven't told anyone. Maybe you have told people what happened and their response was confusing, hurtful, or dismissive. Maybe you feel like you just want it to be over or you should have gotten past it already. You might have reminders of what happened impacting your life through nightmares, flashbacks, or trying to avoid any mention or reminder of the events. You might feel numb. Maybe you are a parent and are completely lost on how to help your child recover.
I work with adolescents, adults, and families - helping individuals that are struggling not only with trauma, but with depression and anxiety as well.
During our first visit, we will talk about what is bothering you now and what you want help with. You do not have to tell a stranger everything at the first visit - we'll get there together.
