Self-Study is the

Path to Change

There are natural points in your life when you become aware that in order to move towards a fulfilling life, you must challenge the way you are currently living.  In making the commitment to change, you must accept that change is not easy, while also acknowledging that it is absolutely within your reach and may be the most important thing you ever work toward.  

When asked what is most valuable in life, most people say nourishing and loving relationships.  The goal of Jessie's work is to get you to a place of mental and physical health so that you have the stamina and clarity to achieve and enjoy that which is most precious to you.   Jessie provides mental health counseling that is rooted in Hakomi, Ayurvedic and Yogic therapies. Collectively, these modalities form a complete holistic care service that provides you with the life skills you need to reach your optimal health in both mind and body. 


Hakomi is a mindfulness-centered, psychosomatic counseling model that integrates psychology, eastern philosophy and neuroscience.  Hakomi helps you identify and modify unhealthful, habitual ways of thinking and being. It does this through the process of mindful observation.  Ayurveda is a holistic healthcare system that views wellness through a lens of understanding that the health of the mind is linked to the health of the body and therefore offers practices to care for both.  Yogic therapy seeks to integrate the mind and body via practices that cultivate focus and awareness of the present moment.

Your treatment plan will integrate these modalities and will be custom tailored to meet your needs.  It will be determined by:

  1. Your wellness goals

  2. Incorporating changes in your daily routine that will reduce mental and physical imbalances/discomforts

  3. Learning self-care therapies and coping skills to achieve mental and physical resiliency 

Begin Your Journey 

"Therapy is first about discovering.  It's about who you are and about what your deepest emotional attitudes are.  It's not about who you think you are.  It's not opinion.  It's not something you can know with the intellect.  It's about who you are in the very heart of yourself.  That's the flavor of psychotherapy, discovering yourself, discovering your real attitudes towards the most important pieces of your life."
