Asking for help is no small task. Whether looking to help yourself, your relationship, or your children, it can be scary to admit your vulnerability. However, despite some popular beliefs, therapy is not about “fixing” something that is broken; it is about understanding the nature of the problem and working with your strengths to see you through it. Jessica offers compassion and understanding to help you identify your current barriers in life while also helping you resolve deeper or underlying emotional distress. She provides a warm and caring space for reflection and to help you to get your needs met.
Jessica works with clients ages five and up and has experience working with a wide variety of concerns. She specializes in issues related to sexual development, identity development, parenting and sexuality, relationship issues, anxiety, ADHD, and trauma. She uses a strengths-based, resiliency-focused approach. Her first goal is to help her clients feel comfortable in the therapeutic relationship and makes every effort to maintain the comfort and trust of her clients while also helping them to grow.
“It takes strength to ask for help.”
