About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Orlando, FL. I have been providing counseling services for many years via face to face and online counseling. I received my Masters in Counselor Education from the University of Central Florida as well as a certification in play therapy. I began counseling to help and be a support for others in times of need. I have experiencing working with a wide range of clients; particularly clients suffering from depression, anxiety, ADHD, relationship issues (including LGBTQ), parenting concerns, low self-esteem, and the loss of loved ones. We all have difficulties in life and need someone to lean on. I have worked with many clients over the years who have truly benefitted from the therapeutic relationship we build; utilizing my philosophy that counseling is a partnership and collaboration where we work together to accomplish your goals. My style of therapy is a mix of client-centered, CBT/REBT, and mindfulness approach. I also tailor the way I practice to fit the individual because I know one size does not fit all.

Outside of my professional life, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a husband, two children, a puppy, and we foster animals from our local animal shelter. I take a lot of time practicing mindfulness and meditation through yoga to keep myself well! I also love the outdoors, kayaking, paddle boarding, and going to the beach.

Jessica was incredibly helpful. She helped me work through some confidence issues and made me recognize the root of those issues so I can finally be free. Thank you, Jessica!

Jessica is thorough in her responses and offers educational tools and worksheets. She is timely in response and very respectful. I have enjoyed conversation with her and have found myself relating to her easily.

Jessica is an amazing counselor and a person. I was going through some really rough periods and she was always there to listen to me and guide my through my struggles. It really felt like she was my friend - no judgement, only caring and compassion. I would like to come back to her again to continue my personal growth journey. Thank you Jessica!

Jessica is a great counselor. One can never be afraid to trust her, as she is never judgemental, but always helpful and providing great advice. And she helps realize a lot of things you might be afraid to even think about on your own!

Jessica has been a huge help to me through a difficult divorce. I was skeptical about online therapy, but it has been the best way for me to deal with my problems and having someone there to respond daily has definitely been worth the cost and an advantage over going weekly to an office.

Jessica was amazing in listening to me and helped me understand what goes on in my mind. She gave me a safe space where I can freely express my feelings and thoughts without worrying about being judged or misinterpreted. Then she gave me amazing, simple interpretation of what goes on and we jointly worked on steps to improve my overall well-being.

In a few sessions back and forth, Jessica has found a way to question myself and give me another perspective to look from. She has a way of asking and answering my questions, that it feels like a natural conversation.

Jessica has been fantastic. She makes me feel like someone out there cares about me and my issues, and that it isn't all just in my head. She is there to help me keep in check and work through my issues. Excellent communicator and I feel like she is a friend.
