NOTES FROM MY ADVENTUROUS CLIENTS...
I hate to say it, but you told me so. It happened! He proposed to me tonight and I had to write you right away. I could not have seen this when I came to you a few years ago. You told me that LOVE was there for me, but I had to take care of myself first. Thank you for making me embrace myself first. This time it’s going to be different.

about my story / your story
Hi. I’m Jessica and although YOU are the MOST IMPORTANT in this process, I want to share a quick personal therapy story with you that you might be able to relate to. (Wow a human therapist who shares!)
It started by my recognizing that I had some real issues I needed to unpack (failed marriage, self worth issues, sucky mom stuff, you know). So I went on a journey to find my person. And, boy did that prove to be an exhilarating let down. One therapist closed her eyes right in the middle of my grief. Another man cringed every time I said F*** (It’s an important word). The last one Polly Parotted everything I said, and just like in the movies, ended with a “Times Up!”
GETTING WITH THE TIMES.
I needed someone to get me, to understand my story, and help me devise a Life Plan. I wanted to come back to them and do check-ins. So after years of training and hours and hours of counseling and coaching, I realized that although the stuff I learned in school was interesting and valid, it didn’t always hold up with the times. How can you plug people into a theory! Where were the changes for Boomers, Gen X, Gen Y, Gen Z?
AN EXTRAORDINARY APPROACH FOR YOU.
So, right in the middle of becoming a mom, I enrolled in a 2-year Life Coaching program (why not)! Ahhhh, this was the missing ingredient. It felt fresh, modern and relatable. I decided to combine both to create a really amazing and profoundly meaningful approach where YOU ARE FRONT AND CENTER OF YOUR LIFE.
We go back, stay present and move forward together. It’s probably unlike anything you have experienced before. Figuring out that you need to make a change in your life is Powerful and I want in! …you in? I hope so.
(No more long-winded stories, I promise.)
YOUR STORY is incredibly important. It has a lot of colors and things to unpack. I get to know you – your needs, your triggers, your boundaries, your stuck-ed-ness (it’s a word somewhere) and your capacities. We both share insights.
WE WORK DEEPLY AND SAFELY with an understanding about being non-judgmental. There is not much that hasn’t entered these ears.
NOW WHAT? Nope, not part of this process. We create a plan together so you can go out and LIVE in an easier place than before. Oh, you’ll get a friendly push from yours truly! But you’ll come to love it. Might even demand it!
COUPLES will see that I advocate for staying together and working it out. I love working with couples! I’ve seen more relationships stay together than the contrary. I’ve been to a ton of weddings too!
A DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE where you usually walk out ready to take your world on! AND you have a partner in Advocacy right by your side.

Benefits and Risks – Sessions may involve discussing unpleasant aspects of your life and, as a result, you may sometimes experience uncomfortable feelings.

There is no guarantee that you will experience any or all of these benefits.
Confidentiality – All information is confidential. In accordance with this, no invoices or receipts will be issued under any circumstances. Please do not ask.
