JESS JARRIS – COUNSELOR, YOGA THERAPIST, YOGA TEACHER, MINDFULNESS EDUCATOR, EMBODIMENT FACILITATOR
Hello! My name is Jess (pronouns she/her) and I am a licensed counselor and certified yoga therapist in private practice. I believe that pain and challenge are inherent aspects of being human, yet within each of us is an inborn drive towards growth. In session, I endeavor to collaborate with you and co-create a brave space that fosters the unveiling of your innate wisdom. My approach is holistic, collaborative and rooted in mindfulness, body-based therapies and intersectionality.
Many of the difficulties we encounter in our lives can be due to separation, whether it be from caregivers, community or nature. For many of us, this disconnection is from our own body and heart. I believe that we are all born embodied, yet life experiences can dampen the signals of our body. Embodiment practice is the process of remembering how to listen to our inner wisdom. Through curious awareness, mindfulness, movement and breath, we can practice turning inwards to develop your felt-sense of being in your body. With time, patience and attention, you can re-learn how to connect your body and experience it as a place of safety, worthiness, and home.
While I may have knowledge of certain theories and tools, I believe that you are the expert of your experience. I will encourage you to be an active participant in the process of your healing in order to create positive and sustained changes that align with your values. In our work together, my hope is that you develop the skills and tools to reclaim your connection to your innate wisdom and unveil the answers that anchor you in the realization of a fulfilling and meaningful life. My growing areas of expertise are supporting individuals navigating anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, disordered eating, body image, chronic pain (including pelvic floor dysfunction and pain) and life-limiting illness, identity exploration and personal growth. I work individually with teens and adults for counseling and embodiment sessions, as well as offering series, workshops and retreats.
