Description

Jess (she/they) is a queer RCT-C, who practices from an affirmative therapy lens. Jess is queer-affirmative, kink allied, sex-worker friendly and practices from a place of acceptance of all sexualities, genders, and ethnicities.

They utilize skills from a number of different modalities, including psychodynamic, attachment-based, narrative, and cognitive-behavioural therapies. They strive to meet each client where they are, and take a person-centered approach.

She understands how difficult it can be to navigate a world that doesn't seem designed for you or willing to accept you.
