Jessica’s own personal core belief is centered around the importance of connection. Connection and understanding of ourselves, as well as how that relates to how we connect in the world. She believes that the crux of most personal struggles can be attributed to a lack of true understanding and personal connection. It is that disconnect in the world which ultimately leads to pain. Jessica founded Relationship Institute of Palm Beach on the premise to help heal, foster happiness, and restore hope in the individuals and families she works with.
