about JESSICA

From childhood, Jessica often felt that she was misunderstood, alone, an outsider. This might be why has been concerned with the idea of justice, the ways of communication and the cohesion of community. Having found ways to belong and relax, her goal is to facilitate this for others.

 

Jessica camped, travelled, meditated, went to college, university, worked in the government, got a house, became a parent and instead of a feeling of belonging, she kept burning out. She made it her mission to understand the struggles she was experiencing. Jessica studied and explored ideas in parenting, joined alternative education groups, trained in different counselling techniques and found herself participating in the neurodiverse communities. She notes “I found my people when I figured out that I was Autistic.” Jessica is now dedicated to work to facilitate neurotypical and neurodiverse connections.

 

Jessica’s mission is to help people to see that they are all whole beings, perfect in their own imperfection. She believes that once people can accept and love themselves for who they are, they can get “unstuck” and even uncover things other than what they thought they had wanted. She believes in the importance of helping people relax into themselves.
