Dr. Jess is fantastic! I truly have nothing but praise for her. I have struggled to heal my diastasis recti since giving birth to my second child four years ago. An intensive online program and work with a PT through my healthcare clinic left me feeling defeated and as though I still looked 5 months pregnant. I started working with Dr. Jess two months ago and immediately started to see and feel results in my core and pelvic floor. Not only is Dr. Jess warm and caring, but she is also so hands on and knowledgeable. It amazes me how she can watch me perform an exercise and make the slightest tweaks to my posture and alignment to deliver major results. I also really appreciate the fact that Dr. Jess understands that I am a busy mom. My care plan is tailored to fit my lifestyle. I continue to recommend Dr. Jess to all of my mom friends!
I have nothing but praise for Dr. Jess. Over the years I have gone to many pelvic therapists trying to understand my concerns. Dr. Jess is the first one who gave me a clear explanation. She gave me great exercises that not only help my pelvic floor but also my knees, hips, and upper body. It is all connected which a lot of PT's do not seem to recognize. Dr. Jess is so kind, supportive, and gentle. I can't say enough about her. I have already recommended her to many people. Thank you so much for all you do Jess!!!
I first went to Jess in Jan 2023 because I had a knee injury from running that was bugging me. I am so incredibly grateful I was able to work with her. She customized my exercises and treatment to my exact needs plus preferences. I loved gaining insights into my running form with my personal analysis and getting a chance to try dry needling. Jess made my PT exercises and plan easy to understand plus perfectly tailored to my specific goals. She also assisted me with my training plan so I could feel confident, strong and ready for my half marathon coming up in June. Highly recommend anyone with running PT or any PT needs to Jess. She is incredibly knowledgeable, organized, flexible, kind and easy to open up to. Definitely a worthwhile investment in my health and running training.
When I got pregnant, I knew I wanted to work with a pelvic floor physical therapist. I was referred to Jess by a co-worker and could not have been happier with the recommendation. Jess was great at guiding me through exercises to support my pregnancy, and assist with my healing and recovery postpartum. She also helped with a number of aches and pains during and after pregnancy. She created a very individualized program for me to follow that was easy to complete with my busy life. I believe I would have had a much harder time with birth and my postpartum recovery if I had not started working with Jess when I did. I can’t recommend her enough!!
Jess is great. I have been working with her for several months on resolving hip pain that began as much more. It has been a journey, a good one! What is special about Jess is she is always thinking and listening. Her approach is not one size fits all. Her care is personalized. She is analytical and compassionate. Each session we work on a plan, not just what exercises but how to tweak each one. The routine is continually evolving as we progress. I am 66 year old and healthy, just aging as we all do. Jess has been delightful to work with, allowing me to return to and maintain my active lifestyle.
Jess is wonderful! I am so excited to welcome this baby and so blessed to have her as a coach and physical therapist! God brought me here for a reason and she has gone above and beyond the call! I was referred to PT for back pain during pregnancy and have learned so many stretches and exercises to help alleviate pain. She also has done soft tissue work for my back and taught me about positions and breathing for labor and delivery. I am excited to come back after the baby is born for postpartum care!
“Dr. Jess is absolutely amazing! I had never been to a physical therapist before but I knew after my first session that I should have sought her out years back after the birth of my first child. Dr.Jess taught me simple yet effective exercises that I could easily do from home and worked muscles in my pelvic floor that I never knew I had! She is extremely hands on and makes sure you know exactly how to do the movement and how to breathe correctly during it-she is even willing to lay down on the floor and demonstrate so you can get it right! Her coming to my house was so convenient and she has a calming and down to earth personality that immediately put you at ease. I 10 out of 10 recommend her if you are looking to strengthen your pelvic floor.”
I’d highly recommend Jessica’s class to any woman! I did quite a few PT sessions specifically for postpartum healing, and ended up feeling frustrated because I felt like too much time was spent on techniques that didn’t help and I didn’t receive advancing exercises. The PT I saw was very smart, but overwhelmed my new-mom brain with info. Jessica made it much easier for someone to understand and to apply things right away. I really appreciate checking for diastasis and knowing more about width vs depth issues. Also loved that I have exercises to be using at home. I’m an athletic trainer, worked for years in different PT clinics, and have had great PT experiences for other things so I have a good background. But, this was a missing piece for me in my recovery. Truly appreciate her offering this class!
Dr. Jess is an experienced and talented physical therapist and I highly recommend her! She’s also very personable, which makes it fun to work with her and easy to feel comfortable. I worked with Dr. Jess while I was pregnant and she guided me in exercises specifically for my body at that time as well as manual therapy to help with some low back and hip pain I was experiencing. I am also working with her post-partum to help strengthen back up, reduce scar tissue after a C-section and prevent issues into the future! She’s a Mama as well, and has great advice and recommendations based on experience. I think she is the perfect PT for anyone pregnant, just had a baby or has pelvic floor issues (even if it’s been 20 years since giving birth!).
“I went to Jess for help with chronic back pain, which had persisted despite care from a physician and another physical therapist. Her approach blew me away. Instead of the five-minute diagnostic on my core and handful of prescribed stretches or exercises that I expected, Jess took a very holistic approach. She very carefully analyzed my posture, gait, strength, flexibility, and discussed personal preferences before prescribing a totally new, personalized exercise routine and posture adjustments. Jess is very empathetic and a great listener – taking great care to discuss the science, anatomy, and practical considerations behind her recommendations. What a big difference!”
