About Jess:

The world is a buffet of experiences and Jess is determined to sample everything it has to offer. During their free time, that means soaking in Utah’s vast mountain ranges and searching out beautiful new places. They also love personal growth, whether by learning new languages, practicing baking, or training in new therapy skills.

Jess earned a BS in Family Life and Human Development from Southern Utah University in 2019 before heading south to Arizona State University where they earned a Masters of Social Work in 2023. They are also trained in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), exposure and response prevention (ERP) therapy, and self-compassion practice.

They have a particular interest in working with the neurodivergent community, LGBTQIA+ community, and individuals on the obsessive compulsive spectrum. That said, Jess isn’t picky—they love getting to know all of their clients and learning just how cool and unique each person really is.

Parent Feedback

We love families first! The receptionist are always friendly and some even remember us. The rooms are fun and interactive. Always clean. We appreciate Dr Swartz has children of her own and can relate to us so much. Appointments are always prompt and efficient. The nurse line and nurse practitioners are fabulous. We have been here 2 years now since our son was a newborn and love it. We now visit families first dentists too.
