“I was in a very fragile state when I went to see Jesse. I was extremely anxious and depressed following a significant traumatic event – the dissolution of a long-term marriage. Jesse was able to be with me in my pain in a way very few people have been able to. He displayed compassion, kindness and wisdom, and showed me self-soothing techniques. He remained sensitive to my needs while guiding me to find my inner strength. Jesse is a kind and loving healer and I would highly recommend him as a life coach to others.”
-Helen Peltier, Calgary
“Jesse is wonderfully wise and very compassionate. He really has a talent for seeing the world through a non-judgemental lens, which provides a safe space to open up and be very honest with yourself. He is an amazing listener and is able to summarize what you have shared in a very clarifying way. Jesse has helped me face big life changes and relationships with courage and an open heart.”
-Stephanie Howard, Toronto
“I don’t often find people who I trust enough to listen to what they have to say regarding my inner realms. Jesse’s energy is solid and real. Just being with him for a short time and talking was so good for me, where I’m at in myself and the questions about life that are on my heart. I relate to him and am excited by the ways that Jesse just being Jesse, has inspired me to be me.”
-Meredith Hackler, Invermere
“The finest walking embodiment of the dharma I have ever had the pleasure to experience.”
