Some of my specialty areas are Anxiety, Depression, Trauma and PTSD, Self-esteem, OCD, Domestic Violence, and Child Emotional Neglect. Are you struggling with self-esteem, self-trust, shame, and guilt, which is why change does not occur? I provide psychoeducation to all clients to help them recognize why change is so difficult and understand how the mind works. An ideal client takes notes and follows through on exercises throughout the week. There are 160 hours in a week, and as a therapist, I only see you 1 hour a week, which means work outside of a therapy session is key to making positive changes in your life.

Tired of people who just don’t "get” you because you’re different? Looking for someone who will affirm you and your identity?

When we experience lots of things like anxiety, depression, or a traumatic event, these things do tend to weigh us down and keep us from living the life we truly want. Although we want to see ourselves at our best, we may be ignoring the issues that are keeping us from that reality altogether. Therapy helps us work through those subconscious road blocks that are affecting us even in the most subtle ways. By using different modalities such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy or Trauma-Focused therapy, I collaborate with clients and couples by working through the blind spots of our mind together.

Being a human is hard work! In therapy, we can learn, grow, and play with our experiences as a team. Together, we can learn to accept and value both the amazing and difficult things that come with a rich, meaningful life. Sometimes the challenges of life get in the way of our ability to access our individual and collective power to heal. Therapy offers a space to discover the parts of us that have become burdened and lovingly invite them to reconnect with our truest selves.

Life may seem overwhelming, as if you are alone and no one understands you. Maybe you have an issue with someone, but the thought of conflict makes you shut down and avoid the situation. Perhaps you are anxious or consumed with worry or afraid of disappointing others. I have worked with many patients who struggle to stay connected in relationships or effectively communicate with others. You could struggle with anger issues and use anger to defend and protect yourself from being hurt.

I mainly utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, along with teaching and implementing appropriate coping skills in order to make progress.
Hi! My name is Jessica and I am originally from Atlanta, GA and attended the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!) where I received a bachelor’s degree in Communications. I worked for several years in the nonprofit development field before deciding that I wanted to return to school part time to pursue a Masters of Social Work degree. During this time, I lived and worked in inner city Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and then did some rural social service work in Central Pennsylvania. These different experiences have impacted the way I view therapy today. I believe in a person-centered approach to therapy and meeting clients where they are.
