“Her consistency and hard work ethic made me a better therapist but, ultimately, a better person…”
Jessica was my supervisor as I transitioned from graduate school into the field of therapy. She gently corrected by errors and stood alongside me as I discovered what it looks like to walk with someone through their pain. She set high expectations that she did not easily waver from in order to ensure that I reached my potential of which I did not know I had at the time. Her consistency and hard work ethic made me a better therapist but, ultimately, a better person as I learned how to navigate and narrate my own story and its interconnectedness and influence on my work.Â Because of Jessica, I learned independence with a sense of humility, failure as a necessity to growth, and that we must care for ourselves as we pour ourselves out to others time and time again.
