Therapist Jessica Dean Photo

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with more than 15 years experience in counseling and clinical mental/behavioral health. I graduated with honors from Alcorn State University with a Bachelor's in Educational Psychology and a Master's in Guidance and counseling. I have been clinically trained in diagnosis and treatment of mental, behavioral, and emotional instabilities. I have taught and facilitated several workshops regarding parental education, family relationships, and motivation empowerment.

My therapeutic approaches vary. It is and has always been to individualize techniques specifically to each person. I am skilled in cognitive therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, integrative therapy, dialectical and client-centered therapy. I have counseled individuals with a wide variety of issues which include: depression, parental concerns, career discord, marriage and family, anxiety, emotional abuse, and other issues. It is my goal to help each client reach their goals and maximum functioning level by motivating and working alongside the client to tackle their challenges. I have the utmost respect and regard for my client's privacy and want them to feel that about themselves as we work together.

I'm excited about what challenges we will resolve together and look forward to being here for you soon.~ JD.

Jessica is my first ever therapist and I am extremely happy with our sessions. She listens actively, and gives extremely good hindsight on my issues, she isn't judgemental at all, and I always feel safe to open up with her. Overall she is very relatable and just easy to talk to, and in the short amount of time I've been seeing her, I have already seen major changes! I would recommend her to anyone with self esteem issues, childhood trauma, anger issues and overall any issues that is holding you back from being your best self!

This is the third therapist I’ve had on this platform and I finally feel like I have found my fit. It feels comfortable like talking to a friend but I can also see her professionalism and skill. It’s the balance I was looking for.

I'm grateful to have met Jessica. I wouldn't be where I'm at without her.

Jessica is #THATgirl. I've been toying with the idea of therapy for 2 years, not knowing where to start or if I'd be comfortable telling a stranger my problems. I've always dreamed of having a therapist who would completely understand me and make my voice feel important. I've only met with her 3 times, but in that small amount of time; she has provided me with a wealth of knowledge/wisdom. I look forward to working with her until I can stand on my own with the materials and methods that she is providing me with weekly. I am so glad that she was available to take me as a client. I feel comfortable, seen, and heard. I am able to talk with her without putting up boundaries that would get in the way of my coaching.

The therapy sessions have been so helpful. I feel comfortable opening up to her and we really get into the nitty gritty of everything which I really needed. She is also very practical when it comes to solutions for the problems I discuss with her.

Jessica is such a beautiful soul. I feel like I’ve known her my whole life. She really asks me questions that help me reflect as well gives me tools on how to handle what I believe I lack the most. I genuinely thank her for everything thus far.

Written by V.. on Mar 21, 2021 after therapy with Jessica for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and anger management

Jessica has given me the confidence to tackle issues I have been burying my head in the sand over for a long time. Her sessions are very empowering. She doesn’t automatically tell me what I want to hear which I like, but she listens to me, helps me find solutions and not to be so hard on myself. She has saved me.

I have worked with Jessica for a little over a year and I must say I really enjoyed the last year working with her. I felt completely comfortable in every session with her. If I ever do feel the need for guidance again, I would definitely come back to her. Thank you so much Jessica!

She is indeed very understanding and supportive. She reads all your messages thoroughly and understands the situation. Also she lets you know the truth and doesn’t sugarcoat which works good for me.

Written by J.E. on Jun 20, 2019 after therapy with Jessica for 2 days on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, and career difficulties

My counselling experience with Jessica has been wonderful. Not only has she been kind and attentive she has also been encouraging and supportive. Even though we are in different time zones, it has never been a barrier for us to communicate. She would still respond to my text whenever she is able to. I’m really grateful to have found her as my counsellor as I no longer feel that I’m fighting alone.

A nice girl, friendly and I can talk to her about anything. Her comments, advice, and even tasks so I can learn more are very helpful.

Jessica has been an amazing counselor, helping me coming through my difficulties, navigating over my feelings and thoughts, always helping me to find tools to find my answers. Very attentive, warm and kind. Thank you very much!

Written by E.V. on Aug 14, 2018 after therapy with Jessica for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship, family, intimacy-related, self esteem, career, and bipolar

Jessica is a great counselor. In the short time that I've spent with her, she's treated me amazingly and constantly reached out when I was feeling antisocial or too busy to reply. I highly recommend her services to anyone who needs a shoulder to cry on and an ear to listen. 10/10. Would talk to again.

Written by H.A. on Aug 13, 2018 after therapy with Jessica for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

She always knows what to say to make me feel better and give me action items to implement in my daily life, to carry what we have learned in our sessions forward.

Jessica has been able to help me process what’s been going on in my life. After my first session I gained so much clarity about my situation and I was able to move forward making a decision that was beneficial to my well being. She has been readily available whenever I needed to speak about a concern.

Written by C.E. on May 09, 2018 after therapy with Jessica for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, intimacy-related, self esteem, anger, and career

Since the very first day Jessica made me feel welcome. She remained available every day (as opposed to the previous counsellor) and helped me with my anger and anxiety issues by providing insight and goals. She truly cares about you. I have come to consider her a friend.

Written by J.O. on May 01, 2018 after therapy with Jessica for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Jessica was so kind and understanding every step of the way. She really embodies all the characteristics that you could ask for in a counsellor. Highly recommended!

Written by A.L. on Apr 13, 2018 after therapy with Jessica for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, and self esteem

Jessica is such a great lady. She has been so attentive and seems genuinely interested in me and my issues. Even if I haven't been in contact for a few days she sends me a message to ask how I am doing. I am so happy to have someone to talk to someone with expertise that really seems dedicated to me.
Thank you so much Jessica.

Jessica is a very lovely and friendly counselor. I feel so much better and feel really encouraged to conquer my problem. Thank you for matching me with Jessica - she's so amazing and friendly!

Written by R.O. on Mar 19, 2018 after therapy with Jessica for 5 days on issues concerning relationship

Jessica's approach to counseling was amazing and comfortable. She was never at anytime judgemental, and she really did listen and ask the right questions to get me thinking about various topics from a different perspective - which I found to be super important. I can tell she really cared and was listening/reading everything i said and was genuinely concerned about my concerns as well. Her advice and guidance really made me feel at ease and it, has so far, set me on the right path to succeed. I would most definitely love to connect with her again when/if the time comes.

Written by P.A. on Mar 17, 2018 after therapy with Jessica for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, self esteem, anger, and career

Jessica has helped me to deal with some issues that I've been having lately. She told me what I needed to hear and that definitely helped me to have a better perspective at the situation. She is also very friendly and very open-minded. Thank you Jessica. It was wonderful having you as my counselor. :)

Written by L.I. on Mar 15, 2018 after therapy with Jessica for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship, trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related

Jessica has helped me conquer a very difficult situation. She was there with me at each step and even pushed me out of my comfort zone. She gave me the resources to see beyond the situation and realize that I am a stronger person for confronting the issue.
