My name is Jamaica and I am a MOBILE THERAPIST (I come to you!) I became a therapist because... I realized the beauty behind my pain and the purpose behind my passion; which is to uplift, encourage and motivate every person I encounter, help others find their voice, and guide them out of darkness. Happiness exists underneath your hopelessness, so let's together walk the path of enlightenment. I assist with life coaching, anxiety, depression, adolescent therapy, and career counseling just to name a few areas. Contact me anytime even by text!

Is your mind constantly bombarded with thoughts of worry, and feelings of constant anxiety that’s negatively impacting your personal and professional life? Are you having a difficult time managing day to day tasks, and lacking motivation to do things that you were once passionate about? Or maybe traumatizing life experiences have impacted you in way that obscured how you see and feel about yourself resulting in patterns of self sabotaging thoughts and behaviors keeping you from recognizing your strengths, and keeping you from moving forward to your Best Self unapologetically.
Do you feel burdened by feelings of insecurity, guilt, low self esteem, unforgiveness, emotional bondage, doubt, depression, or anxiety? Do negative thoughts often come to the forefront without fail? Have these feelings or thoughts become the centerpiece of your life, the lead character on stage running the show? Does this prevent you from communicating effectively in your relationships, excelling in school or your career, and being the best version of you that you can be? If you answered yes to any of the above, email or give Erica Felisa Thompson at Beneath The Surface Therapy Solutions a call today!
Life is like a book. Let me guide you in writing your next chapter on your terms.

Do you find yourself reliving unpleasant memories from your past? These could be situations of childhood abuse/neglect, the horrors of war, or single traumatic events (such as car accidents, assaults, or any situations in which your life or the life of a loved one was threatened). If this is the case, you might have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which is common in civilian and military populations. THE GOOD NEWS IS THERE IS A SOLUTION. There is a powerful therapy called EMDR which has proven to be effective with not only PTSD, but also many other mental health disorders, because more often than not, trauma is the core issue.
NOW OFFERING ON-LINE OR TELEHEALTH SESSIONS Reaching out is not easy, and starting your healing journey is less so. Feeling sad, anxious, fearful or hopeless can be scary and lonely for someone who has no idea where to start to get better. While many of the topics shared by my clients are hurtful and frightening, I also find humor can be helpful. I strive to be honest and transparent with my clients while providing them with a safe, non-judgmental space in which to explore all issues you're dealing.
I'm sorry, I'm not accepting new clients at this time. I wish you all the best in finding a therapist who is a great fit! Trust your gut and drive toward growth and give yourself a BIG high five, because it truly takes courage to find a therapist and begin the work.
Licensed Professional Counselor, MA, LPC, NCC, LCDC-I
Counseling is a tool one uses to identify personal shortcomings as well as gaining insight into one's own self-exploration. My approach to counseling begins with establishing a working collaboration with the client. As a therapist, I believe it is my responsibility to demonstrate to each client that they are in a safe, trusting, environment, and to help them understand why they are having difficulties.
