Jaleesa

The best gift you can offer someone is to listen. You have the confidence of knowing when you meet with me that your needs will be the focus of therapy. In 2018, I founded Continuum Therapeutic Services as a space to assist adults transitioning in various aspects of their lives. Trained in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, my approach is client-centered, team-driven and culturally-sensitive.


I don't come from a traditional therapeutic background and I relate to the stigma that marginalized identities face when seeking therapy.


My experience includes working with young to older adults in various stages of their life. Whether that includes the career-driven professional looking for self-validation or someone recently divorced looking to process grief and loss. Maybe you are coping with low self-esteem as a result of unreconciled trauma or family rupture—there’s no population I haven’t worked with and this is what sets me apart.
