If you are experiencing problems related to drug or alcohol use , I practice a non 12 step approach that is self-empowering and open minded.
Learning why we think, feel, and act the way we do is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves. From there, we gain the ability to adjust, grow, connect, and show up in the world as our most authentic selves. In addition to the listed disorders I treat, I love working with women's issues, relationship issues, phase of life issues, religious trauma, and the LGBTQ+ population.

I work with women who have recently experienced a traumatic event and help them return to a sense of normal. I also work with women who have experienced traumas in the distant past but who have been feeling chronically anxious, depressed, out of control and/or hopeless. Perhaps you cannot remember the last time you did not feel anxious or depressed. Or perhaps your body being in stress for so many years has created health issues. Or perhaps you have turned to compulsive behaviors to escape or numb the pain such as over drinking, over eating, perfectionism, codependency, dieting, binge watching TV and more.

I am passionate about helping individuals find their identity and purpose in life. Self-awareness and understanding your strengths and weakness’ is key. Past trauma, societal expectations, self-esteem and a desire to please others can limit our growth and cause much anxiety and depression. I love working with teens and women that are struggling to cope and need a safe, supportive and an understanding space to process emotions and heal. There is freedom in acceptance and setting strong boundaries.

Is alcohol or another substance holding you back? Are you a professional or executive who has found that the one thing you haven't been able to overcome is substance use? Many clinicians don't truly understand the stress and loneliness that professional success can create. My experience as a senior executive and addiction professional can help you break free and achieve your true potential. Don't let substance abuse be the one thing you haven't been able to overcome as a professional. I utilize positive counseling techniques designed to capitalize on your strengths to help you overcome substance use and achieve your potential.

Addiction is not a problem to be fixed, but rather a person. I have worked with many people with various addictions and realize that addressing one problem from one perspective is not enough. I specialize in getting to know a person first and then helping that person heal from past hurts, learn skills for problem-solving, improve communication, build strong relationships, practice ways to manage strong emotions, learn to slow down and change their harmful or intrusive thoughts, draw from their faith for strength, develop strong support systems, and with all this, hope of long-term recovery can become reality.

I spent 19 years of my life serving the public as a peace officer, first as police and then 10 years as an undercover narcotics detective. Trauma, critical incidents, emotions. I told myself I had to be strong and deal with it. Because of the stigma and belief that asking for help was a sign of weakness I resorted to unhealthy coping mechanisms that subsequently resulted in the loss of everything I once had passion for. It took me losing it all before I got help. 8 years ago I began my new life in recovery and found a way out. If you have the courage to raise you hand now you won't have to suffer in silence any longer.

I take a "meet people where they're at" approach so that no matter what stage of recovery a person is in they would never feel judged because they are "not ready". My experience compiles working in the field since 2002 for several substance use agencies in urban and suburban areas as well as a prior 10 years of "field research" with years integrated living experience. My personal life has shown that incorporating a strong recovery support system with a foundation in spirituality of any kind can bring a lasting, satisfying life in recovery.

I believe the best way to make progress in therapy is to have trust that your therapist understands you and makes you feel as comfortable as possible. I will try my very best to be that person for you. Therapy can seem weird, and vulnerability is hard for anyone. My name is Jess and I am an LCSW in California. I have worked in the medical field for most of my career. This has given me the unique opportunity to work with people of all ages, backgrounds, and situations.
