About

My name is Jessica Lief. I have been practicing as a social worker and psychotherapist for the past seven years. I support individuals who are recovering from substance use disorders, eating disorders, body image issues, and trauma. I work with adults of all ages. My style has been described as nurturing, empathic, and empowering. I am direct and authentic; I will never blame you for your suffering. My approach is primarily psychodynamic but combines aspects of self-psychology, mindful self-compassion, dialectical behavior therapy, Seeking Safety, and mindfulness.
Please call me for a free telephone assessment. Here is what I treat and how I work: Eating disorders, addictions, trauma, body image, maternal grief, motherless daughters, OCD, DBT, Seeking Safety, Mindfulness, Mindful Self-Compassion, The Body Positive, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Identity Work, Licensed Professional Services
I look forward to meeting you and guiding you in your personal transformation. I will help you identify what is deeply meaningful and important in your life and can share concrete skills you need to get your needs met directly. I will support you in developing powerful, research supported, inner resources, (compassion, radical self-acceptance, confidence).

More about this group

Depression and Loss

This group supports individuals who are struggling with symptoms of depression; who have difficulty regulating emotions; and who may engage in self-harming behaviors. We will work on processing and developing coping skills and self-soothing techniques for anger, sadness, and guilt and shame. Issues and themes will center on exploring issues related to grief, loss, and sorrow, as well as issues related to self- worth and self-compassion. A theme of this group will be processing about loneliness, isolation, and disconnection. We will also work on increasing supportive relationships and exploring ways to utilize support systems; self-care, routines, healthy living, and mindful movement.
