Announcement icon I am facilitating all sessions remotely via phone/video), whichever you are most comfortable with. I am actively accepting new clients.
Jess Nicholas Laird is not currently accepting new clients.
If you are wrestling with topics related to your sexuality, gender identity, relationship dynamics, or religious/spiritual trauma, I would love to support you in finding harmony with who you are and how you relate to the world around you. I view clients as the experts of their own experience and seek to come alongside you as a collaborative partner in better understanding yourself and reaching your goals. I will meet you where you are with an approach that is sex/body/kink/poly-positive, culturally humble, empathetic, and compassionate.
My background is in working with individuals, couples and families in clinical and advocacy settings, particularly within the LGBTQ+ community/allies. I was raised in a fundamentalist religious community and can provide support in navigating questions of spirituality and identity, processing shifts in worldview, and healing from religious/spiritual ruptures.
As a queer- and transgender-identified therapist, I am continually inspired and motivated by the strength and resiliency of the LGBTQ+ community and those who support them. My hope is that through working together, we can tap into your strengths, truth, and potential to move toward a place of holistic wellness, self-acceptance, and thriving.
