Jess’ clinical background involves working with an array of clients in a variety of settings, including youth in schools and residential treatment and adults in education, group homes, and who are actively incarcerated. Jess is invested in the child welfare, education, criminal justice, and animal welfare systems and their intersections. She is dedicated to working with clients to challenge systems of oppression and cultivate personal happiness.


Jess’ approach to care focuses on the importance of relationships that encourage individuals to be themselves.
