About The Well Grounded soul

Hi, I'm Jessica.

Serving the Maryland area and worldwide with depth hypnosis, applied shamanic counseling, and shamanic healing techniques

A Spiritual & Intuitive  Counselor

Life transitions counselor

When you’re feeling uncertain and ‘stuck’ in life, I can help you find clarity and tap into your intuition and personal power. So you have the momentum to move forward and embrace the life you always wanted.

I Provide Experiential Healing, Depth Hypnosis, and Shamanic Counseling for Any Challenge You’re Going Through.

you may feel:

  • Stuck in a pattern of old thoughts and beliefs.
  • Uncertain or negative about your future or the future of the world.
  • Anxious about about how to handle ongoing relationship disfunction.
  • Unfulfilled or a sense of being powerless in a situation.
  • Overwhelmed or unhappy, moving through the world without a sense of purpose.

When you look back on your life, you may wonder, is it always going to be this way? Or what am I not seeing about myself? Where can I grow and become more empowered?

Don’t Let Uncertainty or Old Beliefs Define Your Path

There are times in everyone’s life when we are confronted with challenges that may seem too big to handle on our own. Many people turn to friends, family, or traditional talk therapy for guidance. But what if you don’t have that support system, or don’t feel safe to share your ruminating thoughts, or you’ve tried traditional talk therapy and still don’t feel like you’re getting anywhere?

There is a way forward. A path of power, guided by your intuition and a connection to a higher source of wisdom.

You will be supported even if things like long-suppressed trauma and triggered memories of an old wound come to the surface.

You will learn techniques to help you discover and connect to parts of yourself that are waiting to assist you in becoming the full, empowered version of yourself.

I am here to help you. You have the power to heal yourself.

  • Deepen your connection and gain awareness about yourself.
  • Live a healthier life in all areas: body, mind, spirit, and emotions.
  • Heal from trauma, old wounds, and undesirable patterns/behaviors.
  • Find balance when everything feels out of your control.
  • Manage your stress, anxiety, depression, or chronic pain during tough times.
  • Soothe your soul during spiritual crises or moments of doubt.

As a spiritual counselor and empowerment coach, I understand how chaotic and uncertain life can feel at times.

So I offer a unique, experiential healing approach that’ll take you on a journey of self-discovery – and help you:

My goal is to provide clarity in the chaos. So you can move forward in your life and go after your dreams. Ready to work on building your intuition and inner guidance?

"I leave my appointment relaxed and confident I can manage life's challenges calmer.

I have been a client of Jessica for over 5 years… that fact speaks volumes of her professionalism, competency, and holistic approach to massage therapy. She listens carefully to pinpoint affected areas and uses her knowledge of trigger points to release the affected muscle. She is a wealth of knowledge about nutrition, wellness, and physical activity.”

— N. D.

If you're experiencing feelings of negativity, unresolved trauma, or being stuck in an old story, this work helps move you through these challenging times.

But what if you haven’t? That’s ok, I can help you too.

Help With More Than Self-Discovery

While helping people move through times that cause anxiety and uncertainty is my specialty, I help with so much more than that. 

I also help individuals and couples who are:
  • Going through a personal change or life transition.
  • Curious to learn more about themselves.
  • Questioning their beliefs or religious upbringing.
  • Want to do deeper work on the soul level.
  • Preparing and/or integrating a plant medicine experience.
  • Want to live a more meaningful life.

In our sessions, I’ll work with you to discover the answers to the problems and questions you’re struggling with. So you can find joy and live the life you always wanted. You deserve it. 

"She finds and treats emerging issues before they become problems.

Without Jessica's expert therapy, I simply wouldn't be able to participate in the sports I enjoy. She finds and treats emerging issues before they become problems while helping to heal old injuries as well. As a result, not only can I stay active, but am able to compete at high levels – she is a key member of 'my team.'”

A Life Transitions Counselor Whose Journey Started With Healing

I’ve always been interested in the natural world and how it affects our bodies. I was a competitive athlete growing up, constantly moving and developing my body. This led me to pursue an Exercise Physiology degree so I could learn as much as possible about human anatomy.

But then an injury changed my path.

I couldn’t move as easily as I was used to and being a competitive athlete was no longer possible. During my recovery, I learned about Intuitive Manual Therapy – or using your hands to intuitively discover unhealed parts of the body and applying massage techniques to help your connective tissues heal.

After my injury, it felt natural to transition into a role where I could help others who were also in physical pain. I loved this type of experiential healing and opened my practice. 

But then personal loss and health concerns changed my path again.

I discovered that my emotional and mental health played an essential part in my life too – and ignoring these aspects of myself only hurt me more. These experiences put me into a phase of my life I call “the dark night of the soul.”

But I knew I had to find help in that darkness. I started with traditional talk therapy and was later introduced to a Sufi healer that literally worked magic on me. My curiosity piqued, and I wanted to learn more about the mind-body-spirit connection.

I eventually met a doctor who introduced me to the practice of shamanism – and I couldn't help but feel the pull to help others on a soul-deep level. It felt like the next step in my healing journey. So I studied Depth Hypnosis and shamanism at the Foundation of the Sacred Stream under world-renowned teacher Isa Gucciardi Ph.D.

Now, I’m a Depth Hypnosis Practitioner and Applied Shamanic Counselor. 

I use a transformational healing model that combines Shamanism and Buddhist philosophy with transpersonal psychology and energy medicine. I also use the power of the natural world as a teacher and guide, weaving together a framework of support to provide you with a space for self-discovery and self-healing. 

I see my work as work at the soul level, and that's what I love the most about it. It has the capacity to be truly transformational.

My goal is to help you get to the root of what’s holding you back from living a fulfilling life. So you can feel a deeper connection with yourself and the world you move around. 

My path to healing myself led me to where I am today. I moved through all phases of the healing process – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual – and discovered my purpose to help others do the same. 

So if you’re ready to transform your life and discover the momentum to move toward your goals, reach out to me, and let’s chat.

“When you look to help, you see someone as weak or powerless.
When you look to fix someone, you see them as broken.
When you are in service to someone, you see them as whole. 
Fixing and helping may be the work of the ego, and service is the work of the soul.”

— Rachel Naomi Remen

I also love horses! As a former show jumper, I grew up with horses and have been around them all my life. I currently work with a small breeding farm, helping to train the foals and young horses. Why? Because I find horses to be the best teachers for us. 

These beautiful animals demand authenticity and honesty – no matter what that looks like. So they can provide healing and assist you as you do deep inner work.

When I’m not at the farm, I love going on an adventure with my husband. I’m always looking for an outdoor experience, whether that’s mountain climbing, high-altitude trekking, or hiking the woods near my home.

If you want to hear more about my connection with nature or the power of healing with horses, don’t be afraid to reach out to me. I love getting to know my clients on a personal level and sharing my knowledge in return.

Horses Are My Sanctuary

As a life transitions counselor, I love working with my clients to help them heal and discover their inner power. But my interests go beyond my spiritual counseling work.
