ABOUT JESSE

I’ll help you cut through surface layers to cultivate and act upon what matters most to you in life.

I’m not going to be a passive, blank slate-type therapist, I’m going to nurture and challenge you with high compassion and low BS, based on your goals and values. My work is present-centered and experiential – let’s do the work we’re talking about!
In practice, I mainly work from the perspectives of Gestalt (present-centered, relationship-based) and Sensorimotor (body-centered) psychotherapies. I have been in private practice for over 10 years and am a licensed professional counselor (LPC). For more on my education and training, please continue below.

EDUCATION / TRAINING

  • M.A. in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from Naropa University (2005-2008) Boulder, Colorado
  • Guided Imagery & Music (GIM), The Bonny Method (2006)
  • Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (2008-2009)
  • Resilience in Sport (RIS) (2012)
  • Board Registered Interventionist (BRI) I & II (2013)
  • Psychodrama Group Facilitator Training (2013-2014)

As for my own path, I feel blessed to be in Portland, Oregon, working on loving and accepting myself, my friends, and my family to the fullest. I love running in Forest Park, exploring the northwest coast and wilderness, and making my own humble contribution to our exceptional community.
