I believe that life is a journey, and with every journey there are bumps in the road. Issues may come up in life that lead to feelings of confusion, anxiety, anger, or depression. It may help to find a person that will listen and can offer a helping hand on that road. I feel that with my years of experience and objective approach, I can be that person. There is a beacon of hope there, for minor bumps as well as life altering losses. I wish you well on your road and hope to hear from you.

Jessica S. Manning, LICSW is not able to accept new patients at this time. Taking the step to seek counseling services for yourself, an adolescent, or as a couple can feel overwhelming. It has taken time to create the circumstances that have brought you to pursue counseling, and it will take time to actively address these issues and concerns- to see and feel long lasting results. However, the decision to seek services is movement forward- it has the feeling of hope, desire, and motivation on your part in beginning to make changes or increasing your ability to cope and manage life.

I work with clients ranging in age from adolescence through adulthood. Therapists typically describe themselves by listing the disorders they treat, such as depression, anxiety, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Though I have significant experience with all of these issues, I view many symptoms as important expressions of an internal struggle that may have begun long before clients seek therapy. These symptoms often and understandably create misery, but I believe that approaching them with curiosity may ultimately provide a path to reducing or even eliminating them.

I work with clients to help them develop a sense of agency in their lives. By providing support and safety as well as confrontation, I encourage clients to gain access to their own internal wisdom, to approach challenges with hopefulness instead of hopelessness. It is my belief that problems arise due to adaptations made during childhood that no longer serve the best interests of the individual as an adult. Bringing acceptance to old ways of doing things allows us to explore new approaches more appropriate to the client's current life situation. Helping clients access their own personal spirituality and imagery assists this process.
