About Me

Hello and welcome! I’m Jessica Anorve, a licensed psychotherapist in California and Idaho with a deep passion for empowering women to set boundaries, communicate their needs, and reclaim their self-worth. With years of experience in private practice, my mission is to walk alongside you on your journey to self-love and acceptance.

I understand that life’s challenges can sometimes make it difficult to prioritize your own needs and well-being. Whether you’re navigating personal or professional stressors, struggling with relationships, or seeking to overcome anxiety and depression, I’m here to provide a supportive and non-judgmental space where you can explore and grow.

My approach is rooted in compassion and collaboration. I believe in the power of a therapeutic relationship where you feel heard, understood, and empowered. Together, we’ll work on identifying and setting healthy boundaries, enhancing your communication skills, and fostering a stronger sense of self-worth. My goal is to help you develop the tools and confidence needed to live a more fulfilling and authentic life.

In our sessions, we’ll utilize evidence-based techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Tapping, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to address your unique needs and goals. I am committed to creating a safe environment where you can openly discuss your thoughts and feelings, and where we can work towards lasting positive change.

I look forward to being a part of your journey towards self-discovery and empowerment. Let’s take the first step together.

Warm regards,

Areas of Expertise

Experience You Can Count On

Anxiety

Anxiety can be a debilitating condition that can impact your ability to function in your daily life. Fortunately, there are evidence-based interventions that can help reduce anxiety-related symptoms and improve your level of functioning.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is one such intervention that has been shown to be effective in treating anxiety. CBT is a type of therapy that focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to anxiety. By learning to identify and challenge negative thoughts, you can develop more positive and realistic ways of thinking, which can help decrease and improve your automatic thought process.

Grief

Grief and loss can be a difficult and painful experience, but it is possible to process these emotions and find meaning in life after loss. The process of grief is unique to each individual and can involve a range of emotions, including sadness, anger, guilt, and confusion. However, by working through these emotions at a pace that is comfortable for you, it is possible to find a sense of closure and begin to move forward with your life.

One way to process grief and find meaning in life is through therapy. Therapy can provide a safe and supportive space for you to explore your emotions and develop coping skills to manage your grief. I will provide guidance and support as you work through the stages of grief, which include denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. 

While the process of grief can be challenging, with time and support, you can find a sense of closure and move forward with hope and resilience.

Codependency Patterns

People-pleasing and codependent patterns can be difficult to break, but setting guilt-free boundaries is an important step in the process. Codependency is a pattern of behavior in which you prioritize the needs of others over your own, often to the point of neglecting your own needs and well-being. People-pleasing is a similar pattern in which you prioritize the approval and acceptance of others over your own needs and desires.

To break these patterns, it is important to learn how to set boundaries. Boundaries are limits that you set for yourself to protect your own well-being and prevent others from taking advantage of you. 

Overall, setting guilt-free boundaries is an important step in breaking people-pleasing and codependent patterns. By prioritizing your own needs and desires, you can improve your own well-being and maintain healthy relationships with others. It may be helpful to work with a therapist or life coach to develop effective boundary-setting skills and address any underlying issues related to codependency or people-pleasing.
