Eight years into her time as a school counselor, Jessie chose to continue her graduate counseling education to obtain her degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at APSU. Jessie spent years immersed in her own therapeutic journey, deeply benefiting from working through issues of codependency and unhealthy thought and relationship patterns. Jessie has a gift at applying her own process, along with clinical training, to help her clients heal maladaptive patterns stemming from trauma and interpersonal relationships. Jessie has additional brain spotting training that is applied to her work with clients, especially those struggling with trauma and PTSD.
Jessie is passionate about facilitating growth, self-discovery, and healing for her clients with a person-centered, integrated counseling approach. Jessie’s therapeutic work is guided by meeting people where they are and providing a gentle, yet challenging place to land. Jessie lives in Nashville with her husband, Matt, and their dogs, Allie and Stanley. In her free time, you can find her watching ‘The Office’, spending time with friends and family, traveling and dabbling in interior design.
Entering into the therapeutic process allows a person to examine often dark or traumatic origins of maladaptive coping strategies and develop new patterns that will connect one to light and better quality of life.
Group therapy allows for people to heal in the context of empathy and compassion. With each group we hope to foster a safe container that provides ongoing community and accountability.
