Nurturing your most
I think we can all agree, life can be MESSY!
Managing stress, taking care of ourselves and others, finding a way to align with passion…sheesh that is a lot of pressure!
And sometimes we just need support.
Hi, I’m Jess Ahlum, a pre and perinatal psychologist, coach, and somatic therapist passionate about personal growth, healing, and bettering ourselves through relationships.
From the start of life, we grow through relationships. Throughout time most of the great, and tragic, experiences we have are within the context of relationships. So, the key to health, happiness, and healing…you guessed it…
Start with yourself. Connect with your partner. Parent with confidence…in other words… it’s all about You, Your Boo, and Your Crew!
If you have landed here, you’re probably looking for some support. And I’d LOVE to hear from you. In an effort to kick start our therapeutic relationship, here’s more about me to see if you resonate with my message…

Nurturing your most Important Relationships with...
Start with yourself:
Of course we know the most powerful changes come from within. The best thing we can do for the world and the ones we care about is to get right with ourselves. Practicing self compassion and investing in ourselves can feel super awkward if we aren’t used to doing it. Are you ready for clarity, renewed energy, and feeling better through a fun and engaging coaching relationship? Let’s talk about You!
Connect with your partner:
After we mature and leave the family home, many of us find ourselves longing for – or living along side of – an intimate partner. These “adult attachment relationships” shape who we continue to be, building on top of our early parent-child attachments. Big time personal and family growth occurs when you strengthen your intimate bonds. It’s time for You and Your Boo!
Parent with confidence:
Parenting begins pre-conception, so there’s never a “too-early” to tap into your parenting wisdom. Let’s optimize your infant’s mental health, your child’s development, and your lifespan relationships with those you cherish most. For some this might mean mending ties to extended family or friends. Whomever it is you’re longing to love more deeply, just remember, it’s never too late to build connection with your Crew!
