To laugh or cry together

You can have more FREEDOM in your life and relationships.

Let’s talk about what matters most to you.

Do you worry that you’re:

  • Barely keeping it together and afraid of falling apart?

  • A fraud or impostor because you have to hide parts of yourself to belong?

  • Unworthy or undeserving even though you long for deep connection?

  • Not good enough no matter how hard you try?

  • Never going to be fully seen and understood even by those closest to you?

It can be so isolating, but

you don’t have to go through this alone.

Imagine what it would be like to:

  • Have fulfilling relationships that support, nourish, and inspire you.

  • Be true to yourself and feel confident and at ease.  

  • Feel engaged and alive.

  • Love your life! 

Who I work with

I offer individual therapy and couples therapy. I specialize in supporting high performers who struggle to find belonging, including:

  • Asian Americans and other Asian diaspora

  • POC (people of color)

  • Multiracial people

  • LGBTQIA, non-binary, and gender expansive folx

  • Internationals or immigrants

  • Neurodivergent people (ADHD, autistic, gifted)

  • Polyamorous, kink, or alternative relationships 

As a queer femme POC, I formerly worked as a design and engineering consultant. I know how hard it is to fit in, when who you are intersects with multiple worlds and ways of being. I work especially well with people in tech, law, healthcare, or other demanding careers.

If you're wondering if you belong here - yes, you do!

I welcome people of all identities and backgrounds, including those who are marginalized, people who present as normies, and cis/het/white allies.

I help people manifest meaningful work, personal wellbeing, and fulfilling relationships. Let's talk about how I can support you.

Jess is kind, thoughtful, and has a beautiful sense of humor. She is unassuming, but intensely dedicated to helping people. She builds deep, lasting connections with people that allow for real personal exploration and growth. If you’re looking for a committed, caring, and absolutely capable therapist to support you through life’s difficulties, Jess is my personal recommendation.

Katrina M.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

I loved working with Jess as a therapist. Jess has many gifts and what I loved the most was how beautifully she held space for me to explore where my heart and intuition wanted to go. We worked on self-compassion as a mother, healing wounds from my childhood as I was trying to raise my own child; we focused on intergenerational healing as I was embarking on a transcontinental move to be closer to my parents and grandparents; and we focused on freeing the creative inside of me. Our time together laid a strong foundation for a life that feels aligned with my deepest purpose, accompanied by an abundant source of compassion for my hard moments.

Let's connect

I offer online sessions Tuesdays to Thursdays 8am-5pm. If our schedules align, I'd be happy to offer you a complimentary 20-minute phone consultation. This would be a chance for us to talk a bit about what you're experiencing, and how I can offer support.
