My name is Jessica Kreiss. I currently live in Laguna Honda and have been working as a Sales Administrator in San Francisco for the past few years. I love working at a company where I get to be exactly as I am and thrive each day. I became a licensed practitioner in 2015 while serving at the Launching Pad, a CSL spiritual community for young adults to gather and study the Science of Mind. I am now a licensed practitioner at Authenticity Journey of Renewal.

MORE ABOUT JESSIE

This year I launched a new business called Eye Heart You at Eye-Heart-You.com, which focuses on spiritual counseling, officiating weddings, and customizing art. I live my life knowing that love is always the answer. Any situation that enters is just an opportunity for me to handle it with grace and authenticity. On a daily basis I open to living a life that is in support of my highest and best good, settling in each breath knowing that I am exactly where I need to be. Every day I learn whether it is from people, places or even just sitting in beautiful nature and soaking in what the world has to offer me. I honor my spiritual practices, my mentors and teachers. I believe in love, spirit, and God. I am the artist of my life.
