I love my work as a couples' counselor. I'm a Gottman Seven Principles Program Educator. I have over 20 years experience doing individual and couples therapy, and 15 years in private practice. I help couples improve communication, rekindle intimacy and improve awareness of patterns which may result in defensiveness, or feeling "not heard" by your partner. In individual therapy, I create a warm environment where my clients feel comfortable to discuss their issues. Together we develop goals & strategies for cultivating positive changes. In couples work, we address problematic communication to change those patterns from ineffective to effective habits & behaviors.

Life can at times throw some difficult challenges at us. My training as psychologist enables me to adapt to the clients individual experience and goal. I love to work with dreams and see how they can support and lead us on our journey. In the same way most of our unintentional experiences have a dreamlike quality to them and when approached with respect and awareness can get us in touch with our deepest sense of self.

I assist adults and couples with relationship difficulties, parenting, personal and professional life transitions, anxiety/depression, and loss. I use a combination of mindfulness, somatic and depth therapies to help clients develop greater self compassion and Love as the basis for meaningful living. When we feel misaligned with our core self, as a natural result of a life lived through the eyes of others, we can lose our sense of creative purpose. If connectedness to self and others lacks robustness, life can feel very unsatisfactory.

Therapy is writing your own story as we embrace the ‘self as inherently fluid’ and that all individuals are capable of crafting new and empowering stories that include a new sense of self. This is a healing journey, and I'm here to connect with you to explore together the trauma, grief, and other challenging life experiences that prevent you from healing, growing and living the fulfilling life you are seeking.

At Connections First we have faith in the power of connection: with your inner life and to the outer world through meaningful relationships. We believe that mental health is an effect of feeling more deeply connected to ourselves and to others through the safety of transparent, emotionally honest relationships. How we communicate with ourselves and those we care about determines whether we possess integrity and feel empowered to express ourselves as human beings. Much of our symptoms are the effects of emotional, psychological, and physical isolation and self-alienation which can even happen when we are surrounded by other people.

All of us face experiences in our lives where we can benefit from the support and connection that therapy provides. Scientific evidence demonstrates that a strong and consistent therapeutic relationship is restorative, healing and emotionally regulating. As a therapist, I believe in connecting with clients, human-to-human, and I regularly feel a deep sense of understanding for those with whom I work. There is so much noise around us that it is often difficult for us to hear our own truth. I offer a compassionate, heart-centered space to help you to deeply trust your own inner strength and core values.

Life is constantly designing and redesigning our emotional and behavior patterns unbeknownst to us. Neurological patterns get hardwired into our system, making it difficult to respond to the present when we are stuck in a pattern from the past. Past patterns can show up in the form of Relationship problems, Anxiety and Depression, feeling Stuck, or repetitive health issues. We'll make big shifts together if your mindset is growth oriented - meaning you prioritize your personal wellbeing and constantly choose growth over stagnation, and courage over comfort.

Hi! I'm Jesse and I'm going to attempt to help you clarify whether I'm worth contacting in the next few statements. We might be a fit if: You are slightly skeptical of the therapeutic process (you're not alone). You're sensing this is a potential big moment in your life (even if you don't know why). You're someone who does well with a balanced blend of nurturing and challenge. You think growth is possible and awesome and, yes, uncomfortable, but well worth it. Whether you're good at asking for help or not, you know you need it at this moment to get where you're headed. Your dreams are a little scary to say out loud (a good sign!).
