In 40+ years as a therapist, I have found that patients want to feel and do better as quickly as possible. Consequently, my practice is geared toward timely results within a framework of respectful, confidential collaboration. Encountering a range of emotions and problems by working with patients from a wide variety of groups uniquely equips me to provide highly competent assistance. Also, I can work with other resources such as physicians, clergy, and support groups to provide patients with the most complete services possible. After all these years, I feel lucky to still be so passionate about the work.

We all do our best managing the difficulties of life, oftentimes not noticing that pressure is increasing until we find ourselves compromised and struggling with depression, anxiety, or starting to use alcohol or drugs more often than we used to. It is not always the current challenge that is holding us back, but the back log of unresolved issues, such as; loss, family conflict, or a traumatic event. We all need support at times to get back on track and to live our best lives.

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!).

I believe in the inherent goodness of each individual and that we all have a capacity for change and a proclivity towards resilience and self betterment. Maybe you’re not living the life you want or you have conflicting beliefs or conditioned ways of behaving. Under this is often a disconnection from ourselves, others, and/or the natural world. Every challenging thought, behavior, or habitual reaction has at one time served a positive function for an individual. Later, however, it may keep us hung-up, facing roadblocks, feeling stuck, and/or won’t allow us to live the lives we want.

Most of us are trying to avoid our pain, in spite of the fact that it is an inevitable and crucial part of the human experience. In fact, we are never so fully human as when we surrender to the reality of our wounds. Only when we stay with our pain can we hope to learn what it has to teach us in the hopes of ultimately transforming it into something meaningful and life-giving that may just propel us into the life we've always wanted. But it is hard learning how to integrate our wounds. I will help you.
