Jodie Keeso, MSW RSW, CPT-S

At the heart of who we are, we are playful, loving, and have good intentions. Born to give and receive love, so many of us didn't get our needs met or faced challenges along the way that were hard. Coming to therapy is where we can explore together what is working and whats not for you and create a plan to support you in meeting your goals.
