Hi, I'm Jody. 

I value curiosity, relationships, and heart-centered living. By nature, I am an artist and a healer. Prior to becoming a counselor, I worked in the arts, for nonprofits, and in the service industry. Chronic illness has taught me lessons about balance and boundaries, earning my self-proclaimed title as the "self care queen". I have a loving partner, art practice, tiny dog, and two giant house rabbits that keep me busy in my free time.
