Jesse’s areas of practice include:
Relationship counselling: Relationships can be a source of our greatest comfort and our greatest distress. Many couples come to a place where they feel stuck, repeating the same patterns that seem to lead nowhere. Counselling can help provide a new way of being with one another and offer the hope of safety and reconnection.
Divorce and separation: Divorce can be one of the most painful experiences we endure in our relationships. Counselling can offer a safe, nonjudgmental space to ask and explore challenging questions during this difficult time.
Infidelity: Infidelity can tear the bonds of attachment and bring couples to a place where hope seems almost lost. Even during these times of extreme distress, relationships can be repaired. Counselling can help restore relationships and offer a renewed sense of hope and connection for partners.
Sexual intimacy issues: Healthy sexual intimacy is a vital part of any romantic relationship and it’s common for couples to experience difficulties connecting sexually. When sexual intimacy is threatened through withdrawal, pornography, or physical inability, the bonds of attachment can be threatened. Counselling can be a place of unconditional support where sexual intimacy is rejuvenated and restored, and new connections are created.
Spiritual wellbeing: Spiritual convictions are some of deepest beliefs we can have as human beings. When we experience difficulty in our spiritual lives, many questions can arise that we feel have no answer. Therapy can provide a safe place for us to work through these difficult questions and find the answers we are seeking.
Crime Victim Assistance Program (CVAP): Jesse provides counselling to clients under the Crime Victim Assistance Program who have been victimized or suffered trauma due to criminal activity.
Anxiety: Anxiety can be a debilitating mental health issue which leaves many people feeling isolated and alone. Counselling is a chance for people to understand why they feel the way they do and begin to work towards controlling their anxiety.
Depression: Depression is one of the fastest growing mental health issues people face today. When people feel a pervasive sense of sadness and loneliness, hope can seem like a long forgotten part of our lives. Therapy can help people struggling with depression to get ‘unstuck’, regain their sense of hope, and take control of their lives once again.
Self-esteem issues: Healthy self-esteem is one of the most basic needs we can have as human beings, and answers the fundamental question, “Am I worth loving?” Counselling is an opportunity to begin working towards acceptance of who we are and can help provide a new vision of who we want to be.
