In my eyes, one of the most powerful aspects of therapy is the relationship that forms between the therapist and the client. The process of establishing a safe and supportive partnership makes room for us to collaborate on rewarding emotional work. My goal is to help you feel seen, heard, and supported along your journey of self-discovery, and to help you find resilience, authenticity, healing, and self-love. 

My approach begins with warmth and having an open-mind. I am here to help guide you towards the goals that you set for yourself, and I do so by drawing on experiential, relational, narrative, cognitive behavioral, and psychodynamic approaches to address issues like anxiety, depression, relationship/family problems, identity issues, or the struggle to find a sense of purpose. 

I gladly work with all walks of life, and I am particularly passionate about working with the LGBTQIA+ community. From coming out, to dating, to healing sexuality/gender-based trauma, to exploring polyamory and ethical non-monogamy – I am here to support you. 

Antiracism, inclusivity, and LGBTQIA+ competency are central to my work. Whoever you are, please feel free to reach out to me so that we can see if it’s a good fit. 

Jesse, LMSW, holds a Master of Social Work from Hunter College, a Master of Arts in Migration Studies from Tel Aviv University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Biology from The College of Wooster.


The Therapy Collective is an IHI-approved LGBTQ+-affirming mental health services provider.


While we are currently virtual, our practice hopes to return to hybrid services, with in-office and virtual services in the near future.
