FROM PAST CLIENTS:
I want to bring Jess to the life of everyone I love and know! The world would be a better place if we were taught and learned these concept from the start. My favorite thing about counseling was how easily accessible Jess was via the Practice Better app. There were times when i was in distress and knowing that if I send her a message it will eventually be answered to. That really meant a lot to me. Stephanie N.
I was having a lot of difficulties with cravings at night and I was blaming myself for this cravings as if they were somehow reflective of a lack of willpower. Understanding the science behind why I was having those cravings helped be increase my self-compassion and change my habits in a way that actually worked! She is awesome! She approaches nutrition with compassion and will work with you and what your unique needs are. She also has a non-judgemental approach which made me feel safe to discuss and explore issues around food, especially those relating to shame and body-image concerns. Ana G.
Jessica is personable and makes you feel like you're just chatting with a good friend. She often reminded me to find balance while giving myself grace. Kim B.
I wasn't kind to or about my body before. Healing that relationship has meant so much to me and has given me so much peace, and that's what I would say (and have said) to my friends about working with a dietician. [Also] I really liked the way Jessica would make suggestions or recommendations. She was never dictating to me exactly what I should be doing or eating but would instead talk through why my eating patterns are the way they are and discussed different ways to get to the intended outcome, which helped me feel more in control and not like I was just following a plan. I felt like before I started working with Jessica, there were so many external factors influencing my diet and fitness habits that I not only didn't have any control, but I didn't know how to regain control either. The way Jessica framed our counseling made me feel like I was in control again and it was refreshing to have that autonomy back. My N.
Jessica is an AMAZING DIETITIAN who embraces your culture and customs and encourages you to continue to honor your culture through food, and gives amazing guidance to help you through your body image journey. I really enjoyed digging deeper and working on getting to the root cause of my feelings surrounding body image and food intake. I enjoyed reflecting back on my personal experiences, particularly with grief and how that plays a large role in how I view myself and learned self-compassion in the process. Emmalis T.
I was met with a great deal of respect and thoughtfully prepared nutritional advice. I never felt coddled, but overtime felt safe to share my concerns and received really practical sound, and sustainable nutritional advice rooted in intuitive eating practices. My favorite part about nutrition counseling was getting to meet with Jessica during our meetings and download all my nutritional hangups and misconceptions. She is so empathetic and understanding! Also, I love the homework, gave me really incremental things to adjust in my habits which added up over time. No matter your size, every woman who is tired of diet culture and shame should feel completely at ease working with Jessica! I'm so glad to have invested in myself through her practice, so worth it! Dominique B.
I really liked how Jessica came to every session with an idea for what we can cover. I also enjoyed how comfortable I felt in each session even though they are all virtual - it felt like I have known Jessica my whole life so it made it easier for me to open up. I know you think you know a lot about being 'healthy' but just you wait until you start digging deeper into how external factors (that are sometimes wrong) feed into it. Work with Jessica if you would like a more balanced approach to a healthy lifestyle. Arlene M.
Jessica is amazing! She listens to you and tailors the counseling based on what you need. She really helped me dive into my relationship with food and my body. I learned so much. I am very grateful for Jessica's expertise. Jessica a genuine and kind person, and very easy to talk to. Nakia B.
Jess is an amazing dietitian. She meets right where you are and encourages you through nutrition education and support. She is a light and she feels like a supportive best friend who happens to be an expert in nutrition. I am forever changed by the 6 months I spent in her practice. Joy L.
My biggest fear before I started nutrition counseling was that it would be focused on what I should and shouldn't be eating. It didn't come true at all! Instead, I was reminded to enjoy a variety of different types of food and was really affirmed in my food and exercise choices. I loved the focus on intuitive eating and the reminders to include variety and focus on what I ACTUALLY wanted to eat. It helped to ease my stress and the restrictions I had regarding food. Jessica is absolutely amazing and I highly recommend working with her! She is very down to earth and helped me re-establish a great relationship with food and my body. Marney R.
My biggest fear is that my nutritionist would judge me harshly for some of my decisions. That did not happen AT ALL with Jessica. In fact, her positive disposition and manner coupled with her deep insight in nutrition and healthy strategies gave me so much confidence in my decision making abilities, as well as filled with so much useful knowledge. Jessica will make you feel like anything is possible as long as you put in the work and are willing to be committed. She will make you feel at home, while also challenging you to be your best. Go to her. Now. Florence N.
Jessica was incredibly thorough and met all of my needs and beyond during our 1-hr session. I walked away feeling a lot more knowledgeable and confident about tackling these issues. My favorite part of nutrition counseling was understanding more in depth some of the things I had previously had basic knowledge of. Jessica was incredibly generous with her time, and made me feel empowered to take on my nutrition [concerns]. She's incredibly knowledgeable about nutrition, and you are in incredible hands with her. I'm so glad I was able to meet with her, it's so worth your time and money. Jenn L.
You should contact Jessica, she's awesome, and she's down to earth and makes you feel really comfortable. Lea
I would highly recommend Jessica. She has such great energy, is always positive, and very thorough. She always sent a follow-up summary after each session that included what we talked about, goals for the week, tips and other helpful information. I also appreciated that her sessions with me were based in reality – she’s not trying to sell you something, no unrealistic goals, weird cleanses, or other wacky diets! She’s very genuine and cares about her clients, helping them in a very real, authentic, healthy way. Thank you Jessica!! Jennifer P.
