They, Them, Their

Hiya 🙂 my name is Jesse and I’m a Qualified Mental Health Professional working my way

toward licensure. I earned my Master’s degree in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling from

Portland State University in 2022.

As a therapist, I am supportive, engaged, and collaborative. I believe therapy works best when

we’re working together to create a life worth living for you. I draw heavily from dialectical

behavior therapy, interpersonal theory of counseling, and psychodynamic theory. In layman’s

terms, this means I will utilize skill-based interventions, like mindful breathing and

communication techniques, to help you manage difficult emotions, distressing relationships,

complicated family situations, and past trauma. We will work together to challenge unhelpful

behaviors, thoughts, and behaviors in a safe, compassionate environment that we co-create.

My therapeutic practice is based on respect for your individual needs and experiences. I

believe that every person is doing the best they can with what they have at the time. My goal as

your counselor is to support your natural drive toward healthy living which involves discovering

what health looks like and means to you as an individual. Additionally, I aim to help you increase

your awareness of your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, patterns in relationships, intersecting

identities, and past experiences all for the purpose of growth and self-understanding.

I am actively engaged in social justice efforts and practice from a place of cultural humility. As a

White, temporarily able-bodied, educated transgender therapist I acknowledge my intersecting

identities play a complex role in my practice. It’s my goal to use my unique sociological position

to undo systems of oppression including those I currently benefit from and unwittingly

perpetuate.

As I make progress toward licensure I am supervised by Dr. Erica Aten.
