Jessica (Jessi) West


About me

I am a licensed clinical social worker in Illinois. I have experience working with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, and ADHD.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client-centered, and solution-focused therapies. Please know that I do not believe that any one of us is perfect - least of all me, so there is no judgment in sessions on what you say. I am here to walk alongside, encourage, and support you.

It takes courage to share your struggles with another and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Jessi has been a good support while I go through a tough time. I appreciate her thoughtfulness and her skill in addressing my issues.

I was nervous at first since I have never spoken to a therapist before, but those uneasy feelings disappeared after talking with Jessi. The first talk wasnt what i was expecting which was good and the talks after were helpful. I feel comfortable being open and hearing her input and views on my problems help; theyve also helped me think " oh, i might be able to get through this afterall" which is a change from " these scars will never heal". She has helped me enough in a short time that makes me wanna continue these sessions for long awhile.
