My name is Jessica Curd and I am licensed therapist in Indiana with over 15 years of counseling experience. I am a nationally certified grief and loss and end-of-life counselor. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, coping with grief and loss, building self-esteem and confidence, and increasing motivation. I also specialize in Autism and ADHD (helping both those with Autism and/or ADHD as well as supporting parents/caregivers). I am a PhD Candidate with Indiana University School of Social Work. For fun, I enjoy time with family and our dog companions, being outside, running, hiking, camping, traveling, learning new things, and creative writing.
In therapy, I collaborate with clients to create an environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process!

Jessica has been very helpful. She listens to me but also doesn’t pressure me into changing my lifestyle. It’s a process and I really appreciate how nice and kind and how attentive she is.

Jessica HEARD me from the beginning and has been an INCREDIBLE HELP to me from the very first session. She's got experience as well as education and I'm BLESSED TO LITERALLY CARRY HER IN MY POCKET with me and if I begin to struggle, I txt her rather than take a drink, or smoke or other self destructive behaviors I did in the past. She's FANTASTIC. THANK YOU JESSICA ❤️

I cannot recommend Jessica enough. After struggling to find a provider in my area and feeling a little hopeless about getting any help. I was more than surprised about how quickly I was matched with a therapist and how well we connected. Jessica has always been available for our scheduled visits and she messages me often. She’s given me really great insight into how my trauma is affecting me now and ways to identify and cope with that. Love this App and love her!
