"Thank you for all the work you have done with me this year - you have truly gone above and beyond for me. I've realized just how integral your energy and support have become in my life. Thank you for sticking with me. I have grown so much in this year, and you have been a monumental part of that. I can only hope that one day I'll have the kind of impact on someone that you have had on me. You're amazing at what you do."





"I had Jesse as a therapist for two and a half years. As Jesse's client, I felt supported, cared for, and loved. Jesse was professional, warm and sweet. Jesse's approach was very eclectic because he used a range of therapy styles with me. For example, we spent a lot of time doing childhood trauma work that helped explain current behaviors and patterns of mine. He also helped me in my decision-making process about becoming a therapist myself, which I am now doing. Jesse is the person who motivated me to go to alcohol recovery and suggested that I might be addicted to alcohol. I have been in recovery ever since and am a new person with a promising future. Jesse really saved my life because I would have died from alcoholism if I continued drinking. I am crying while I write this in a cafe..."



"Jesse's presence exudes warmth, genuine caring, and an ability to understand our unique complex inner worlds. He is one of the very few people who truly listens and understands not only surface-level content, but the pain, humanity, and meaning that lies deeper within one's heart. I always trust Jesse as a referral source for clients; I'd also be instantly relieved to know that the mental wellness of my close friends and family was in his hands."

-Elizabeth Butler, PsyD


"I can't imagine a better fit than Jesse for helping me through my issue. He showed caring and guidance that helped me resolve what I was struggling with and move forward with my life. Very helpful."




"Jesse helped me become a stronger and more confident person. I know myself a lot better now and am happier in my relationships."
