“Working with Jewel has truly changed my life. I came to her office filled with anxiety after experiencing religious trauma. She made me feel safe, and I felt comfortable sharing what I was thinking and feeling without fear of judgement...
… She was very patient and gently guided me as I made sense of my emotions. I also appreciated that Jewel noticed that I liked to learn through reading books and articles and often recommended authors that helped me process what I was going through. It has been over a year since I was an active client, but I often think back to my sessions with gratitude for the healing I experienced, my relationship with Jewel, and for the tools that I still use as I continue to grow.”

“I can say with certainty I was able to heal and integrate past experiences to allow for more full participation in my own life and relationships.“
I was looking for a therapist at a time in my life when I knew I really needed to address some things to create the life and relationships that I desired. Jewel came highly recommended, and I am so grateful to have found her practice! I experienced a shift in terms of making myself and my growth a priority through her consistent scheduling of weekly sessions. Working with her was truly authentic, and she always provided a safe space to explore and a soft place to land when dealing with painful situations. Jewel provides such a warm and full presence that helped me feel comfortable in relating to her, and I also appreciated the way humor and laughter emerged through our work together. I can say with certainty I was able to heal and integrate past experiences to allow for more full participation in my own life and relationships. This was truly a meaningful investment that improved my quality of life in many ways.”

“This process made me realize I could advocate more for myself where I needed to, find my own voice and learn things about myself and my past that I needed to process”
I started meeting with Jewel due to feelings of anxiousness about aging, starting a new phase of life, and relationship struggles. I was at a point where my sleep was disrupted, and I felt depressed and anxious a lot of the time, which was a new experience for me. I’d never been to a counselor before and was desperate for help. Being an introvert, I constantly think and analyze in my head. Jewel provided a safe space for me to share and tell my stories, worries and concerns. She listens and observes with compassion and no judgement. She reflects, and then offers empathy and feedback in ways that allowed me to see things in new ways and from different perspectives. I always thought of myself as a strong, independent person who could handle things, but this process made me realize I could advocate more for myself where I needed to, find my own voice and learn things about myself and my past that I needed to process. It’s good to have an unbiased listener to help you realize things, and I had several ‘A ha’ moments during our sessions. I’ve recommended Jewel to my friends and won’t hesitate to meet with her throughout the future as needed. She’s exactly what I hoped to find in a counselor.

“Jewel has quite literally been a life-changing force for me and my relationships. Before I met her, I dealt with anxiety, depression, and feelings of being “stuck” concerning my family of origin and my marriage. Jewel has helped me untangle and understand these complex emotions. She has assisted me in processing trauma, making my daily life feel much lighter and more manageable. . . “
. . . Prior to meeting Jewel, I was deeply attached to my emotions, and minor issues impacted me significantly. I was highly sensitive to triggering situations. However, with her guidance, I’ve been able to observe my pain and hurt from a more detached perspective, making them much easier to handle. With Jewel, I have always felt safe, heard, and understood. She empathetically holds space for my pain and assists me in processing it. I couldn’t be more grateful for all she has done for me! -Current Client

She keeps me focused to explore deeper in session and gives me tools to discuss and understand myself and experiences on a deeper level. Jewel has helped me create more of the life I have dreamed of living. -Current Client
