As a transgender man, I am dedicated to supporting the LGBTQIA+ community because I truly believe that strength lies within human connections and feelings of acceptance.
I am a compassionate and empathetic person, and my goal as your therapist is to provide a safe and non-judgmental setting while you embark on your gender journey. My therapeutic approaches include motivational interviewing, solution-focused interventions, and person-centered engagement. Shortly after receiving my bachelor’s degree, I moved to Arizona and began my journey to discover my authentic self. In 2009, I made the courageous steps to live authentically as a transgender man and medically transition. Therefore, I bring a wealth of knowledge regarding resources to therapy.

If you struggle with anxiety, depression, gender dysphoria , feelings of inadequacy, the need to “perform” (whether socially, academically, professionally or within intimate relationships), mistrust of others, suicidal ideation and/or the pain of unresolved traumas, including identity rejection trauma, I can help.
I help individuals within & allies of the LGBTQIA+ community get unstuck. Most of my clients have struggled for a long time before seeking therapy. The struggle to lesson anxiety, depression, gender dysphoria and/or the pain of past traumas, including identity rejection trauma, has led many of my clients to self-sooth through a variety of ways including eating, smoking, drinking, gaming, & toxic relationships. They want more than anything to just be happy in life. Our journey together is about healing past wounds & shedding the negative beliefs that are keeping you stuck & away from the joy that is your innate right to experience.

I have completed continuing education training on working with transgender , nonbinary, and gender expansive adults and youth.
Hi, I'm Jess. I believe therapy is a collaborative process grounded in a trusting, therapeutic relationship. In my role, I provide the compassionate space for you to begin self-reflection and explore ways to initiate changes in your life. The therapy relationship becomes the safe, working model to practice communication. Part of my style is helping you embrace uncertainty in the transformation process, clarify your values, and explore your relationship with your thoughts, emotions, and body.

As a psychologist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and help you find ways to be your best self. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can use them to better understand and resolve the current challenges in your life. By working collaboratively, we will work to adjust behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

I specialize with personal identity/discovery, LGBT, Transgender , HIV, mood disorders, relationships, abuse and am known as a Spiritual counselor.
I AM WORKING THROUGH MY WAIT LIST AND UNABLE TO SCHEDULE IMMEDIATELY. Seeking a therapist can be an unsettling endeavor. I can provide a free 10-minute phone consultation to help you determine whether or not we are a good fit. As your therapist, I bring a whole-person approach to healing the past and maximizing the present. My approach is an eclectic one and with over 30 years counseling experience, my "toolbox" is "well-stocked". We all have our own intuitive wisdom to guide us but we may need help in learning how to hear and honor these messages. I am confident that we can work collaboratively to create the life that you desire.

I believe creating a safe space for the client and therapist to connect cultivates trust and makes the client feel validated in their journey. As a member of the LGBTQIA2S+ community, I can understand the challenges that comes with navigating the process of trying to best understand yourself and explore what makes you feel the most comfortable.

I work collaboratively with clients to have an understanding of the events & issues in their lives. My approach to counseling includes a client-centered approach establishing a strong working-relationship. There are no "one-size-fits-all approaches" to address all problems with all individuals. As a result, I use a variety of approaches working with clients to meet their goals. I seek to understand the impact of a client's life-experiences, family history, personality, values, etc. on their development and relationships with others. I can work with individuals who have ambivalence about making changes & gain insight into problematic behaviors.

Do you feel a loss of meaning, pain from a difficult past, or feelings of anxiety and overwhelm? Are you struggling with relationship conflict or renegotiation? When people have experienced complex trauma—whether it is oppression, child abuse, painful relationships, or the struggle of being alive—they often lose trust in themselves and others. Therapy is an opportunity to rebuild trust, redefine your sense of self, choose your values, shift your relationship to the past, create a life of meaning, and build relationship safety. I specialize in working with the LGBTQ, neurodivergent/autistic/ADHD, poly, and kink communities.

Life can be so unbelievably hard. We may be left thinking, “I’ve tried everything and nothing seems to change,” or, “Is something wrong with me for feeling this way?” We may feel unable to connect with our most important people about what is really going on. We may feel unable to connect with ourselves. I get it—I’ve been there, too. I also know that with the right support, you don’t have to get stuck, go through this alone, or feel this way forever. No matter where you’re starting from, it is never too early or too late to heal, change, and grow.
