Jessica Holesko

Licensed Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern

Hi! My name is Jessi and I am here for any and all of your therapeutic needs. Many of our current ‘issues’ are deep rooted within ourselves, coming from relationships and environments from long ago, and up until today. Together we can explore this and figure out the best way for you to move forward. There is never any judgement here, I have worked with people of all ages, backgrounds, faiths, lifestyles, and classes.

Many of my past clients have told me that therapy with me does not feel like therapy, it is more comfortable and easier than they expected.

I look forward to you learning more about me, as I learn about you!
