Jesse Ross, MEd, RCC
Jesse earned his B.A. in Psychology at University of British Columbia and his Masters in Counselling Psychology from Simon Fraser University. He has over ten years of experience working with children, teens, and adults with agencies in counselling and the social services. Jesse works from a client-centered, trauma-informed perspective with influences from Emotion-Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Existential Psychology, among others. He specializes in depression and anxiety, interpersonal dynamics, suicidal ideation and hopelessness, recovering from trauma, and assisting individuals in the process of reconnecting with their best selves, their sense of identity, and their ability to find joy in life.
Jesse considers it a calling and a privilege to be able to call himself a counsellor. He applauds those who find the courage to seek change and improvement in their lives and feels a deep gratitude that he is able to bear witness to these incredible processes. He believes that by choosing to explore self-awareness and self-improvement through counselling, the client is breaking a pattern that may go back several generations and taking the pen to write their own story.
Jesse has counselled clients of all ages (adolescent to senior), genders, and sexual orientations. He has also worked with clients from various cultures including those of Indigenous, Asian, African, Middle-Eastern, and European descent. Whether you see Jesse as a fit for you or not, he hopes that you will continue to follow the instinct that has you reaching out and exploring ways to enrich your life. You are worth it.
Jesse is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the B.C. Association of Clinical Counsellors.
