Jesse blends psychotherapeutic approaches and draws frequently on mindfulness, harm reduction, anti-oppression/social justice, and attachment theory. Techniques include interactive present moment awareness, the use of cognitive behavioral exercises, and motivational interviewing. Jesse works in partnership with clients with a warm, engaged, and client-centered style.
Jesse received his MSW from San Francisco State University and went on to focus on administrative, financial, and organizational development with organizations working towards social change. In 2011 Jesse began expanding his work to include a dual focus on personal, psychotherapeutic change in addition to structural change. He has worked extensively with transgender/gender non-binary folks and longtime survivors of HIV, most recently at Queer Life Space, where he spent 3 and a half years deepening his clinical practice by providing individual psychotherapy and facilitating a year-long gender spectrum group. Prior to Queer Life Space, he completed a two-year post-masters internship at Alliance Health Project (formerly AIDS Health Project), where he provided time-limited individual dynamic psychotherapy (TLDP) for HIV+ and LGBTQI populations and co-facilitated multiple groups including a transgender support group, a men’s process group, and an aging group.
Jesse’s professional interests include: gender issues, dyads/couples and non-traditional/chosen family relationships, twinship relationships and sibling issues, aging & illness/HIV, substance use, body image, anxiety, self-defeating behaviors.
