Jessica Strauss

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW, LMSW

I am welcoming new clients. Each of us - child and adult - has the gifts we need to develop our full potential for happiness, productivity, and loving relationships. I offer support and guidance in a non-judgmental, culturally-responsive atmosphere, as we collaborate to understand your challenges and build on your strengths. We will explore specific strategies for healing, as you get through tough times, manage emotions, change unwanted behaviors, and address underlying sources of pain - in a caring and safe environment. I am committed to helping you to grow your sources of support - personal, family, cultural, and/or spiritual.

My diverse practice is open to children, teens, adults, and families - experiencing stress, trauma, grief, or interpersonal conflict. We address the "why" behind each challenge, particularly traumatic experiences. In addition to individual and couples work, I work with clients' families/other caregivers to create the most supportive environments possible.

I offer clients a culturally-responsive, strengths-based, trauma-informed, family-strengthening approach, tailored specifically to their own needs and goals. Trained in Structural Family Therapy; Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT); Mindfulness/self-regulation practices; completed certification at The Trauma Center and the EMDR Institute.
