Jese Rugroden MA, LMFT

Jese Rugroden - Psychology provider at Psychiatry & Psychology

"I believe in cultivating resilience in the patients and families I work with. I want to help each person discover their most authentic self and be confident to go into the world being who they are. I believe in assertive, direct communication to help address the struggles that come into the office. I feel that therapy is a journey of teamwork, with the patient, their support system, and myself, all working together to promote wholeness and wellness.
