Hello! My name is Jessica Brousseau and I am a Certified School Counselor and Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Connecticut. I completed my graduate work in School Counseling at the University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford, CT. I have been providing counseling services to children, adolescents, adults, and families for the previous four years, addressing a wide range of concerns, including anxiety, depression, stress, life transitions, academic challenges, LGBTQ+ issues, relationship/social issues, and more.
I believe that every individual experiences life challenges in a different way. Because of this, I employ an integrative approach to counseling that borrows practices from several orientations, including solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and strengths-based therapy. I believe it is important to collaborate with clients to determine which strategies will work best for them, and to make their time with me as successful and effective as possible.
Seeking counseling services takes a great deal of courage and commitment. I applaud you for having already taken the first step to becoming a more fulfilled individual who wants to make real, meaningful change in your life.
I look forward to working with you!

She’s wonderful beyond words. She’s supportive, helpful, kind, and smart. She gives multiple ways to cope and helps find the best path for you to take. She is very understanding and by far the most helpful person I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Thank you!
