"I am not being hyperbolic when I say that working with Jessica saved my life.
Jessica helped me set my feet on a path that incorporates self-acceptance, self-love, and self-nourishment on a multiplicity of levels, to re-define healthy. My progress has been incredible, but I don’t feel fixed. Instead I realize I never needed fixing, I just needed to see that I was on a path and I desperately needed someone to guide me. Jessica was that person, and our work together has been nothing short of miraculous.
Together we incorporate nourishment of my body with nourishment of my mind and spirit. Jessica has taught me invaluably about physical nutrition, but more importantly she opened my eyes to the ever expanding joy that is my reason for being here. When I follow that joy, my body issues, my food obsession, my depression all fall into place. I am exactly where I am supposed to be.
In her I did find an expert on physical nutrition. I also found an expert on holisitic nutrition; a rock of support, friendship, love, advice. I joke with Jessica that I hear her voice in my head when I’m making any one of a range of choices, whether it be what to eat or whether to work or whether I’m allowed to rest and countless other little choices, all the choices that make up a life. Most miraculously I believe more and more every day that to embrace everything that comes with each day – no matter how I feel about my body, my work, my relationships, god, or myself – is infinitely more important than each of the elements that make up the day.
Her spirit and intuition are linked with her magical hands, as she knows just what parts of your body need attention. When it comes to body/nutrition issues, she knows her stuff and is an excellent resource for any physical malady. Jessica is a professional who is not afraid to show her caring and concern for her clients.
"When I began working with Jessica, I was pretty bummed out about the way I felt and the way I looked. I felt really bloated and uncomfortable. I was going through some medical issues and I felt like I needed to get my health/diet in order. Since starting my work with her, I have lost weight and made a real effort to eat healthier and pay way more attention to what I eat than ever before, and I'm feeling so much better. Also, I have improved my general awareness of my body and mind. I also lost a significant amount of weight, which was my ultimate goal. Through some of the things we worked and as a result of the changes I’ve made, my relationships have never been better. It was as though I was seen and heard and was able to break through some barriers and allow myself to discover some renewed intimacy.
Jessica is an incredibly kind, honest and generous person to work with. She never made me feel bad or sad about anything I told her or shared with her. She responded incredibly quickly either on email or by text whenever I had a question or was feeling bummed about something specific. She is such a POSITIVE person and that was so helpful to me, because I can get down and resort to some old bad habits. With her support and positive encouragement I was always able to get back on track.
My work with Jessica really gave me the support I need to start the process and continue. She's positive, attentive and always makes herself available. And she's tried and true. Her methods and philosophies really work! I was having such a hard time getting started on any 'health program' and she was the jumpstart I needed. She was so helpful with recipes and different food alternatives to things I was eating. She was so intuitive to my body and my mind in terms of what would work and what wouldn't. I'm pretty sure she saved me from a slippery slope of unhealthy behaviors that were just getting worse. I'm forever thankful for Jessica and her support, patience and guidance. I only hope to continue to work with her."
"Jessica is somebody who has helped me enact my health priorities and has given me permission to nurture myself on another level. To be able to have a coach and guide like Jessica who can handle an intense person like me takes a lot.
One thing I love is that Jessica remains completely energetically available to me in order for me to deepen my health and nurture myself. At the same time, what she brings to me is very hard to put into words; I trust her with my life, but yet she does not take responsibility for it, which is very empowering.
For someone to be able to transform my 24-year journey from food and recovery issues and then go to the next and most deep level, is remarkable. I can honestly say I now have zero issues with food and overeating. I now nourish myself with nutrition as a non-negotiable in my life no matter what is happening. This is something I am beyond grateful for AND I even lost weight without EVER dieting.
The bottom line about Jessica is that she is a leader of leaders."
"Before I went to Jessica, my body was all kinds of messed up, and I honestly did not like getting massages at all. I wasn't looking to be pampered and all that; I really wanted help with my body. I was experiencing a lot of pain in a few places in my body due to a heavy travel schedule, a lot of computer work, physical work that involved crouching and holding uncomfortable positions (as a photographer/videographer with a lot of heavy gear, shooting long hours), and also due to an old and slow-to-heal injury from over-exercising. I feel like my body is in a totally different place now, not as stiff or as painful, not waking me up in the middle of the night, not just from Jessica's magic, but also from the wisdom she imparts about how to take better care of myself. A session with Jessica always leaves me feeling awesome, renewed, and on a healing path, with more energy and lightness. I wish there was one of her in every city since I travel so much! I have not been able to find anyone like here anywhere else on the planet!"
"My work with Jessica has been one of the most valuable experiences of my adult life. When I came to her I felt very lost and frustrated. I feared I would never know what healthy really meant for ME. With Jessica's guidance I was able to finally build a strong foundation for my physical health and well-being. She also opened my eyes to how that wellness intertwines with both my mental and emotional state. Jessica's approach incorporates her profound knowledge in the science of food/digestion, her instincts as a natural healer, and her enormous heart. I now go forward confident in myself and knowing what my body needs to be healthy and happy. I am so thankful for her help and counsel."
"Working with Jessica changed my life - through a combination of bodywork and nutritional and lifestyle support, Jessica helped me reduce a lot of anxiety, learn how to eat in ways that supported my digestion, ease back pain, and honestly SO much more. This list goes on and on.
But I think the MOST important thing that Jessica helped me do was to trust that my body is inherently strong and inherently healthy, and that I have the power not only to heal myself but to make the right decisions about my body. Jessica has an amazingly powerful way of helping you make good decisions without feeling like you’re depriving yourself in any way. In fact, she helps you eat better while feeling so much more abundant and pleasure towards what you eat. Pure magic!"
"Jessica's wealth of knowledge, experience and helpful insights gave me the confidence I needed to start my career as a health coach. Thank you Jessica!"
“My sessions with Jessica were an opportunity to reflect on patterns of thought, eating habits, and work-life issues that created a particular environment for me. Gradually, I felt like I went from being a car with four flat tires to being a cyclist starting with training wheels and then going on without them. The progress was helped by Jessica's patience, support and guidance.
Her smile is comforting and mirrors the kind of acceptance that we all could benefit from. It prompted me to learn more about nutrition and good choices without judgment. Jessica can help you normalize your experiences and patterns while moving you to your own right action with regards to food choices; emotional responses and self acceptance related to the array of relationships that impact eating and the sense of well-being.”
“I have been working steadily with Jessica for over 2 years. Under her guidance and support I have slowly gained the knowledge and wherewithal to change my health and eating habits dramatically for the better. I have lost an average of 8 lbs. and my cholesterol numbers have dropped 25%. I recently got a glowing review from my doctor after my last annual physical. Jessica is a warm and comforting spirit, never judgmental, and has given me consistent advice throughout our work together. I plan on continuing this journey with her, and I strongly recommend working with her.”
"It's been about two years that I've known Jessica and I can say with confidence that she changed my life for the better. When I came to her for a massage I thought I was going to just lie on the table, get a massage, and feel great. Of course I felt very relaxed afterwords, however what I experienced on the table was much deeper than what I had originally thought.
Jessica is much more than a massage therapist. She is also a health coach and a healer. Her kindness and compassion is expressed with every word and movement when she works with you. She was always sure to check in with me, making sure I felt safe, and comfortable. What surprised me the most is that both times Jessica gave me a massage I found myself reflecting on my life in a new way and releasing parts of myself/past that were not working for me. Gaining this refreshing new perspective about my past is only a fraction of what occurred during the time I was getting a massage. It is truly an honor to know and be able to work with Jessica. To this day I still send Jessica love and light when I think of the wonderful shifts that she helped provide for me on my journey to wholeness!"
“While I am still a work in progress, I feel I now make more informed decisions when it comes to my health and don't feel like I'm ‘missing out’ (I am celiac and diabetic). Not to mention that she taught me to cook things I never thought were possible with my lack of cooking experience. : )
I think knowing that Jessica is there to support, not break down, your choices and being a positive influence has been a great comfort as I strive to be healthier. Use her as a tool to make your life better!”
“I have been going to Jessica for massage therapy since 2008. Working long hours on my feet as an RN, I had developed both neck and back pain. At that time, I felt emotionally overwhelmed from working in a highly stressful environment and knew I needed help. From my very first session with Jessica I knew that she was an extremely skilled and intuitive healer. In a very short period of time, I seemed to release years of tension and emotional trauma from my body. My back pain disappeared and a felt more centered.
Jessica has been both extremely caring and professional with me throughout the time that I have known her. Jessica is knowledgeable beyond her years, a truly gifted practioner. I also appreciate her creative approach, which makes sustainable lifestyle changes not only possible, but fun! I look forward to continuing to work with her and highly recommend her for both body work and health coaching.”
"I'm in week 5 of 13 in my immersive coding program! And I ended up getting a full scholarship to attend, so all the pressure of the loans and debt is completely removed. I'm so thankful, and feel so lucky.
I feel so thankful you and I did our work together before going into this. I really feel that I've been able to take this on in stride and succeed because I know the things I need to do to maintain me now.It doesn't feel like being strict or punishing myself in any way - I absolutely give myself permission to eat whatever, whenever I want. But most of the time I choose to be kinder myself by making myself feel as good as possible for the rest of the day. Treating myself to a long walk feels so much more restorative, and I find that's what I reach for when I'm feeling stressed/overwhelmed. And it really does feel like a treat to give myself! Not that everything's easy, but now I'm able to quickly identify the physical symptoms that mean I was worried about something else, and dig deeper to figure out my anxieties. That awareness feels like such a gift, instead of it all being so buried.
So thank you so much for everything!!"
