Jessica R. Sardas, M.A.
Associate Marriage & Family Therapist
Jessica believes that every person deserves to be witnessed by an open and curious mind, and that therapy is one way to have that experience. Jessica works with individuals and couples from all walks of life who struggle with depression, anxiety, grief, relationship difficulties, and issues around the creative process. She facilitates a deeper understanding of underlying issues and finds it equally important to highlight strengths throughout the therapeutic journey.
Jessica enjoys working with introspective individuals who are interested in exploring the nuance of their identity. She provides a celebratory attitude where all genders, sexualities, and relationship types are embraced. She sees self-exploration as a catalyst to a more authentic and fulfilling life. Jessica works well with those looking for a body-positive, sex-positive, or identity-positive environment where they can bring all of themselves into the room.
