I’m Jess, a Christian Mental Health Coach!

I help women overcome negative thought patterns to regain control of their lives.

When you are looking for a Christian mental health coach, you want someone who understands thought patterns and strategies for overcoming what’s holding you back, not just because they are certified to teach them but because they have lived through it. 

Let’s get to the bottom of what’s holding you back together.

There is hope even in the midst of your darkest moment.

When life feels chaotic, it’s understandable if you feel more than a little overwhelmed and negative thoughts start coming.

The weight of responsibilities can be suffocating, leaving you mentally exhausted and questioning your every move. Maybe you’re caught in a cycle of stress, feeling like you’re failing at every turn, unable to catch a break.

But here’s the thing – you don’t have to navigate this alone. I understand the struggle of trying to keep it all together while feeling like we’re falling apart inside.

I want you to know that there is hope, even in the midst of your darkest moments. You don’t need to carve out hours from your schedule or book a weekend away to find relief from the mental strain and emotional turmoil.

Together, we can explore practical strategies infused with biblical wisdom tailored to fit seamlessly into your everyday life. Whether you’re stuck in traffic, waiting at the doctor’s office, or simply trying to get through another hectic day, know that there’s a way to find peace amidst the chaos.

Hi friend, Jess here,

Maybe you are thinking, why now, and why should you should work with me or book me? I get it. I would probably ask the same question.

I was five the first time I witnessed physical abuse. It worsened and repeated throughout my teenage years (even into my early 20s). I didn’t realize the impact it would have on my life. Feeling abandoned, I turned to men to feel loved and my body to feel safe. 

In my search to figure out who I was, I fought mental battles daily, making myself promises that I would do anything to keep. I avoided confrontation at all costs. These thought patterns of not feeling good enough began to spiral out of control, leading me to an eating disorder and a workaholic.

I didn’t grow up in the church. I found God at 22 when my thought patterns and beliefs were already programmed in me at a deep level.

One day, I refused to believe the lie that “this is the way my life will always be” because of the way I was raised. That was the decision that changed the course of my life. 

I stand before you today, showing you it’s possible to break old negative thought patterns, find freedom from the pain that once felt suffocating, and renew your mind from self-defeating cycles.

I share with you exactly how I was able to make it all possible.

Popular Biblical Studies by Jessica

“I highly recommend Jessica’s coaching program because she helped me to stop relying on my feelings.

Because of Jessica’s coaching program, I am a lot more aware of what I’m feeling. I never realized how many negative thoughts just run through your mind throughout the day, and I realized a lot of what was running through mine wasn’t true or healthy. Since the coaching program, I’ve been focusing on replacing those thoughts with truth since Jessica taught me how.  Something I’ve noticed the last week is when I wake up in the morning, I’m not instantly filled with dread and overwhelm for the first time in SO many years, and that’s a huge blessing.”

    How is a Christian Mental Health Coach Different than a Counselor?

    As your Mental Health Coach, I have more than 15 years of experience as a coach, coaching in different fields, and gone through over 200+ hours of biblically-based, clinically excellent training in being effective people helpers, bringing them into God’s presence, crisis intervention (e.g., trauma, abuse, suicide), active listening, mental and behavioral health disorders (e.g., depression, anxiety, bipolar and spectrum mood disorders), addiction, and leading others to healing.

    However, unlike licensed mental health care providers, with me as your coach, I can not diagnose or offer professional treatment for mental health disorders. I would focus on addressing your body as a whole (looking at emotional, relational, physical, and spiritual health), supporting positive change to help you move forward by better managing your symptoms, building support for recovery, helping you work through thought patterns, and more.

    Mental health coaching is action-oriented, emphasizing improving one’s present life and reaching goals for the future (like feeling lighter and free). Both coaching and therapy can be very helpful. 

    *Key differences: Coaches cannot diagnose, treat mental health disorders, or prescribe medication like licensed therapists, counselors, or psychiatrists do.
